i am on a roll with some forum entries so i figured one more couldnt hurt haha!
I am living in Cologne now and have spent carnival in alicante spain previously (which was great). i dont speak german very well, but can get by in spanish pretty well, so i am torn between spending it in cadiz or cologne!?!?!? i have heard they are both great!
Hello Ryan 😊
I have never experienced it in Spain, but here in Germany where I live, it is parties for a few week. Usually people dress up in a costume and go to parties. It is also know as a time of infidelity. It is an anxious time for those who have partners who tend towards having extra maritial affairs. Carnival here is called Fasching.
haha, not married... so this might be the way to have an intriguing conversation with a german woman then her husband haha... however the gf might not enjoy this 😊
It would be extremely strange to be in Cologne during carnival season the first time and going to a different place.
In Cologne carnival is called Karneval.
Yes, i will be spending karneval in köln!!
It is customary here in Germany to dress up in a costume for Karneval parties. Will you be dressing up, Ryan?
of course! i was a police officer with short shorts aviators and a handlebar mustache a couple years ago... although this was in spain
have decided what i'll do this year yet, i wore a beer helmet on nov 11th and was extremely popular for some reason haha
Be sure to post a photo of your Karneval custume here. 😊

Is that those helmets that contain beer with a straw comming out of them, so you can walk around carrying your beer on your head? Maybe you were popular because you were sharing the beer. I think some of the helmets have more than one straw. Or else you were a good photo opportuntiy. 😉
yep, thats the helmet, i'm about 10 trips behind on updating my blog so once i do... there will be carnival pictures up as well!!
i been in europe over 12 years koln the best city to party
Wait for the Brazil Carnival.
