So our introduction to Germany was bumpy to say the least. Our quick 1.5 hour flight from Venice to Frankfurt via Ryan Air turned into a twice aborted landing (the worst turbulence) only to land in Cologne (WHAT?!?) where they put us all on a bus back to Frankfurt for 3 hours and we got into the airport around 1am. Did I mention that as we landed in Cologne due to bad weather, a full rainbow taunted us as we got shuffled onto shuttle buses. (See below)
Lesson of the day? Never fly Ryan Air.
The next day we made our way to the city center where my cousin picked us up. Dad also made it out from California as we were staying with my aunt (his sister) so it was a lovely family affair.
