Curious Human Being

Who am I? I am the kind of person who sees something, finds out something amazing, great, beautiful, simple, easy, etc., and wants to share it with every person I meet and say: Hey, check it out, It is so amazing, beautiful, outstanding, you should definitely see it and experience it.

As it was with me seeing for the first time Cologne Cathedral. I was in Cologne, Germany. It was near sunset time, dusk. I just got from the plane and was walking through the street for no reason, didn't know where I'm going, just free street surfing. I mean it's a typical old town of a big European city, you can not get lost there, you just enjoy, explore and inhale this beauty and history. Anyway, It was an old narrow street, pretty touristic, with a lot of small shops and cafes and then… The street suddenly ended! And the Cologne Cathedral fell down on me like a wave of a Pacific ocean. From its top, through the whole square, right to my feet. It was huge! It was amazing. It was beautiful. It was breathtaking. I was standing there in awe. 

Why am I telling you this? Just for you to get to know me a little bit. This is one of the stories that I would tell you in a conversation at the party or other kind of gathering, you know, these small talks about traveling.
