Drinking Champagne while supporting Ukraine in the rain in Cologne……
One of the true gifts of travel? The people you meet along the way.
Meet Laura. Laura lives in Cologne. She’s a medical doctor and during her studies she met Michael. Michael lives in London and works in a hospital. This is how he met Jan. Jan is married to my cousin, Natasha. Confused yet?
Michael and I were invited to Jan’s birthday party in Hamburg. Michael invited Laura. And this is how I met, and became friends, with Laura from Cologne. Thank you, Whatsapp! I am sure I have some friends that are reading this shaking their heads. Yes, Katy (Scotland) and Kevin (Australia), you have Laura to thank (blame) for Whatsapp.
