Canadians First Time at a Traditional Co-ed Spa

Visiting a co-ed spa was a foreign concept to me, being born and raised in Canada. Nudity in my culture is reserved for your own home where some have issues looking at themselves in the mirror. The gym change room is another publicly acceptable nude room, many of us have mastered the art of undressing by using a towel without exposing our private parts. My wife, Kristen, and I walked into that spa and let go of our Canadian mentalities.

I undressed in the co-ed change room next to a woman in her 60s. She had kind eyes, a warm smile and no knowledge of nude shame as she stripped down without embarrassment. Kristen and I entered the spa, dropped our towels and were liberated, free for all to gaze upon! There were adults of all ages and body type, casually conversing as if being nude was more comfortable than being clothed. I had to constantly remind myself that people are not judgemental of bodies here, something I have never experienced in North America. Nudity is very much a part of the culture here. This German spa was the first place I have experienced harmony and equality among class, age, sex. Nobody knows whether you walked in with an Armani suit or a ripped t-shirt, you are all equal, beautiful and free. I immediately felt unjudged and part of the community.

The architecture and decor of the spa was heavenly. Stone tiles lead the way to a large open room with lounging chairs and a marble swimming pool. The ambiance is zen, with only the sound of calm conversations and light background music. Buddha heads, candles, bamboo designs and waterfalls decorate the many rooms with relaxation and beauty. The outdoor rooftop contained hot tubs and saunas to keep you warm and steamy as well as cold pools and a bucket of snow used to cool your body down before jumping back into the hot tub.

I left with my body relaxed, my skin clean, and my mind at peace. I learned that the human body is a beautiful gift which should be appreciated and accepted. Nudity is our original state and should be more widely accepted.

Römisch-Germanisches Museum

Cologne

Modern archeological

“如若亚当喝过巴伐利亚啤酒,他就不会偷吃苹果了”,一个啤酒瓶上写着。科隆的罗马日耳曼博物馆里,摆着一个“现代考古学”的小型特展,将那些大轰炸后挖出的生活物件精心摆放,算是2000年考古史里与当下最贴近的记忆碎片。有意思的也许是,这些“古董”并没被陈列在本该从属的城市博物馆里。

Cologne

O imperdível bairro do porto de Colônia

Rheinauhafen, o bairro do porto de Colônia, é simplesmente fantástico. À margens do rio Reno, mescla o antigo com o novo. A arquitetura moderna das torres guindastes ( chamadas de Kranhäuser) impressionam. A área tem restaurantes, cafés, escritórios e apartamentos sofisticados. Também concentra eventos (no verão tem um cinema ao ar livre!). Merece muito uma caminhada por lá.

Belgisches Viertel

Cologne

O bairro criativo e jovem de Colônia

Quer ver gente jovem e descolada? A área trendy de Colônia ? Então dê um pulinho (ou se hospede) no Belgisches Viertel - o bairro Belga. Por lá você encontra galerias e lojas de design autênticas, além de vários bares e restaurantes ultracharmosos como o Salon Schmitz, o Yo, o Belgischer Hof, o Guten Abend, entre muitos outros. Para ver a movimentação, percorra num fim de tarde os arredores da Brusseler Platz (Brusseler Str, Aachener Str., Antwerpener Str.).

Hohenzollern Bridge

Cologne

Love padlocks bridge

É imprescindível cruzar a ponte Hohenzollern em Colônia. Além da vista linda da cidade, é possível ver os cadeados pendurados pelos casais apaixonados que jogam a chave no rio Reno. São inúmeros, mais de 40 mil cadeados. De um lado da ponte está a Cidade Velha (parte mais turística ) e a famosa Catedral de Colônia. Do outro, o PANORAMA KölnTriangle - um prédio onde é possível ter uma vista de toda a cidade da sua cobertura. Paga-se 3 euros para subir e se encantar com a paisagem única.
