I feel like we were in Munich for ever. We rented a little studio apartment with about a hundred and twenty five steps up (I counted). It was tiny and quaint and we both slept like shit until I took the pillows off the couch and added them to the bed. This qualifies for #firstworldproblems, right?
Given the state of the past eighteen months or so, I am no longer a light weight (two-fold). But the magical beer in Munich set me on my ass. There's not much to talk about, other than I got really drunk and tried to make friends and everyone spoke English and was seemingly delighted to speak English. I can just tell you that we still went to the grocery store regularly and still binged on European chips. Food over there is magical! I probably ate my weight in kindereggs, which is why it's doubled.
And the photos, all the photos:
|And then we found out the pretzels weren't free.|
|A much nicer sterling silver version of the bracelets I offer. It's the German in me?|
|I saw these in the grocer and lost my shit.|
|Little apartment, giant kinderegg, French subtitles (I think?).|
|I didn't expect Oktoberfest to be like a carnival.|
|Just a loose weiner.|
|We went on one ride. I've immortalized it for you.|
And from the actual beer tent:
|Americanization everywhere, including on this dude's "Duff" shirt. (Brewery from the Simpson's.) People would stand on the tables, chugged their beers to a chorus, and then get escorted out.|
|All the beards. All the plaid. Actual Germans.|
|I love my camera, but obviously this was taken after a little while. Goofy blitzed.|
|He's so happy. We were on our third stein.|
|Canadian that I made friends with. Not sure why he hasn't accepted my friend request........ :)|
|The look of fear that a drunken American woman with a camera instills in a strange man's face.|
|Why didn't I buy this?|
|Hummels. Because German.|
And the tattoo...
|Prepping for ink.|
|I told him that his birthday gift was a hot chick leaning all over him.|
|Not gonna lie, almost died.|
|Ludwig II's papi.|
And the tack store...
|All the colors, all the options.|
|I freaking loved these boots.|
And more Germany..
|Surfing a river.|
|Carriage ponies. Always.|
