View from the patio of our hotel.
My sweetheart's birthday and a public holiday were excuse enough for us to go for a little extended-weekend holiday. We started our search a bit late, though, and were surprised to find that many hotels were completely booked. So it was mostly by coincidence that we found ourselves in a small, picturesque place in the Eifel, a hilly region only about a hundred kilometres south-west of Cologne - we had found a pretty and romantic hotel and I knew that the area was good for walking tours, which is something we enjoy.
It turned out a fabulous weekend with perfect weather, perfect walks through beautiful, quiet landscape and a perfect hotel, too.
