After spending a few days in Koln, Elizabeth and I headed up to Hanover late last night. Our train left around 7:45 p.m. and we realized as we found our train would take almost three hours to get there. On top of that, the hotel was located just outside Hanover, or so I thought. Turned out that the town the hotel was booked in was over an hour a way and that there was not another train this evening.
So we changed our plans, re-booked the hotels and set off towards Hanover. The train ride was long and we decided to get dinner in the dining car which was interesting--trying to stand up and eat while the train is rocking back and forth. Plus trying to keep your food from sliding off your plate onto the floor, and your plate from falling off of the table onto the floor! We made it in around ten thirty at night and got a taxi to the new hotel (where we have booked for just one night due to availability) and called it a night, planning to go to the zoo in the morning.
