Just because I have to travel for work, does not mean I can't eat OR that i am too professional to take pics of my food. No chance.
Off to Cologne for DMEXCO, which meant walking round the Kolnmesse halls, networking, schmoozing and getting my step count up.
Usually, food is not the key focus and what you expect is canteen style food or Currywurst from a Truck. I had both of these and some more. From the pictures below you can see, that when in Germary, pork is THE meat to have.
The pictures of the food, above and below were from Papa Joe's (Cologne Old Town), this was the Pork Knuckle and Zum Prinzen (Schnitzel). Both hit the spot and were great with a side (s) of beer.
The Germans are not big fans of pints here. Instead the small glass of beer, was a clever way to get you drunk without you knowing. Two sips and the glass of beer is finished and you are on to the next one. Before you know it you have ordered about 9 or 10 ( been charged a fortune) and tipsy AF. Ah well, put it on works time and expenses. (Shhhhhh)
So Schnitzels, Pork Knuckles and Sausages. The joke (title of this Post) is the only thing which is bad, whilst the rest (food, conference etc) are all an experience to savour and make the most out of.
See you next year COLOGNE, i Think.
