‘This was the first night in over a year that we have not slept in the caravan!
Arrived at Camping Meiger, definitely the worst campsite we have ever had the misfortune to stay at. Dilapidated, run-down, unkempt with only one positive point of hot shower water to lift it above zero on the Thomson's Travels Yuck Meter! We pitched the caravan and Awning on the carpark and left to meet up with friends in Lohmar, about down the road. After a walk with the dogs, a beautiful meal and number of drinks, we decided to stay the night and make the most of our friends guest room and clean hot shower. This was the first night in over a year that we have not slept in the caravan!

A visit to the Dom and shopping centre in Cologne.
The Cathedral Dome is an impressive gothic monument to the architectural prowess of it's builders. It is AMAZING
and well worth a visit. The size of the columns and arches are fantastic and the stained glass windows, so colourful even on the cloudy day we chose to visit.

Party Day, well actually party night as we had been invited to meet up with Heike who was celebrating a birthday. The last time I met up with her was over 30 years ago.
We arrived at the party after and arduous trip, luckily a friend drove,
I have some recollection of agreeing to sing
through traffic jams and SatNav errors, at about 7pm! Well worth the drive and we wended our way back to the caravan at around midnight after sampling most of the drinks cupboard
We also agreed to meet up again late May 2016 for a folk festival... I have some recollection of agreeing to sing
