Being tired of always taking flights, and having to deal with airports, we decided to take the train to our next stop, Munich. It made for a nice change of pace, and dropped us off right next to our hotel in the city centre.
The main draw of Munich was that Oktoberfest was still ongoing, and we were keen to check out the famous tents at the Meadow of Therese. But first, we needed lederhosen! I managed to get a good deal on a pair for each of us, and @anthbaird was pretty excited to get his (he wouldn’t take it off the night before we planned on going!). We definitely looked the part when we entered the grounds, though! We managed to squeeze onto a table in the Pschorr-Bräurosl tent, made friends with our neighbours and got to work on drinking steins of beer. This was a momentous occasion as Anthony doesn’t usually drink beer, but over the course of the day he managed to get through 2 and a half steins. I managed a few more! But we also enjoyed the rides and sampled the local food.
The next day was spent recovering, but we managed to check out some of the historic city centre as well, over the course of our stay. There were some beautiful monuments on display, as well as some great museums that made our visit well worth it.
