Belated GD Germany Photo Blog

Morning all,

As some of you who follow my Twitter feed may or may not be aware, I recently took a trip to Cologne for Games Day Germany.

Aided and abetted by fellow author Chris Wraight and the awesome BL crew including Ead, Claudia, Bony and Dany, and my other half Stef, I had an awesome time as well as experiencing a culture and a people whom I found to be incredible friendly and extremely interesting.

Rather than bang on for pages about how great it was, I thought instead I’d just post a bunch of pictures I took during the trip with associated captions. Enjoy!

We spent about three hours in here, just watching the world go by. Funk Haus means something like 'Broadcast House', or so we were told.

    Hope you had fun in Germany :).

    I have a question: The Salamanders Omnibus is up for pre-order, but it doesn’t say if there’s anything extra beyond the three books in it or not. Could you enlighten me, please? ;)

    We did indeed, thank you. For answers re: the omnibus, check out the blog post… :)

    shame on you… you were in cologne and drank a bavarian “hefeweizen” instead of a kölsch… -_-

    think about the “beer war”!!!

    btw: yes “funkhaus” does not mean “funk house” it indeed means “broadcasting house”, i think it is part of the “WDR” (west german broadcasting) buildings which is kind of similar to the “BBC”

    My bad – it was very nice though… ;)
