    Last day

    August 19, 2017 in Germany

    Spent the last day in Munich.

    Started by visiting the marktplatz, and then heading over to walk through Sendlinger Tor (the city gate).

    Then spent a solid 90 minutes waiting in line to get into the Deutsches Museum, which was well worth the wait. The museum is massive, with seven floors all housing multiple exhibits of science. I particularly enjoyed learning about how paper was made and how production grew in Europe over the centuries, as well as the technology exhibit. Weird to see some of your childhood in a museum...

    From there I actually went back to the market to buy lunch from a stall and meander through the various souvinere tents, before heading off to Hofbräuhaus to experience perhaps the world's most famous beer hall. It was quite an experience.

    Time to pack up and get ready to go back to the US. I've had a blast, but am excited to go home!

    Munich - Science Museum

    October 11, 2015 in Germany

    Gyurme went to Dachau but I decided I didn't really want to see another concentration camp, so I went to the science museum instead. It wasn't as interactive and child-oriented as science museums often are (aww, those things are fun! Maybe it was in the kids-only area downstairs) but it had heaps of neat stuff nonetheless.

    I particularly liked the cut open German submarine (the first type of U-boat, U-1, actually the only one ever made), and the scanning electron microscope demonstration (spoken in German, but I could at least look at the images, eg. #2 of a ~1cm scorpion, and zoomed in on the serrated inner edge of its claw).

    There were also multiple jet engines (#3) a ~9 storey high Focault pendulum (#4), one of the planes that featured in The Wind Rises (#5), and an electricity/lightning demonstration that I mostly missed (#6). Spent a good 4 hours here but could have stayed longer. Most descriptions were in German and English but unfortunately the demonstrations (of which there were many) were all in German.

    Munich

    August 16, 2017 in Germany

    It was that time of the summer I have been waiting for so long. It was time to finally step in the country I wanted to visit in a long time. Germany. Little I had known I would want to visit this country if things hadn't changed so much over the past 2 years of my life. But as they say everything happens for a reason and many of these reasons have finally brought me here. It begins in Munich.

    I took an overnight flight from Canada so I didn't sleep the night as I am not able to steep on planes for some reason so I was exhausted when I reached my friends place and he asked me to take a nap. My brain just wouldn't let me sleep because it knew that I was in Germany no matter how dead the body was the mind could not rest, which resulted in me going to the nearest coffee shop and ordering a coffee in German of course! My first german interaction with anyone in Munich.

    I was just in a mixed state of shock and excitement, neither of which i could handle physically but the coffee was trying its best. I eventually had lunch and had to meet up with a friend for dinner who I met in Canada in the fall semester of 2015. It was great to see him again and I had my first Döner with him in the Hauptbahnhof area, it was cool mainly because he was a Turk-German and they were the first ones to originate Döner in Germany haha. I was actually shocked to see much of the population near the Hauptbahnhof area being of non german origin. Really shocking, it was like I wasn't even a minority in that area. Maybe its normal for a big city like Munich but it was not how I pictured Munich.
