A Spark of Life

Events that in recent past have engulfed humanity to sadness. Scenes that seem to repeat themselves from a nightmare, that we long to forget. Have we forgotten that showing kindness and empathy only makes us stronger and not weak?

Cologne

A trip that was more about the Cologne Cathedral than anything else!

Cologne is so far away from my place that not even a one way flight trip could gurantee that I visited all important places that the city had to offer 🙁 Yet I can vouch that the city seemed to be bubbling with tourists from various countries.
