In the evening, we swapped out pork knuckle and beer for Aperol Spritz and pasta in a little Italian Bar, in the back streets of Munich. It was such a great little find and we returned for a breakfast of pistachio croissant and Prosecco.Read more
No visit to Munich is complete without having a litre of beer at the world famous Hofbrauhaus. I didn’t really want to, but thought I should “take one for the team” and check it out.
It’s a massive hall and it was absolutely chockers… but we eventually found a table and ordered some German cuisine. I had German Sausage with mustard and potato salad. Nicky had spinach dumplings in a blue cheese sauce. It was a simple meal, but absolutely delicious.
And then there’s the beer… I don’t think I’ll be able to drink a Great Northern or XXXX again. It is the best beer I’ve had in ages. I can’t put my finger on exactly what the difference was, but it was delightful.
Check out the photo of the men's urinal... obviously a lot of beer to get rid of. I wanted to stand in the centre and see if I could hit all of them, but they frowned on that for some reason... 😂
Unfortunately, the Oompah Band went on extended break before I could get a video, but that was a good excuse to go back the next day. So now we have a video.
Overall, a delightful end to the day…Read more
The Munich Christmas Markets opened today, so we decided to wander around and check things out.
It was a nice day, but a little on the chilly side. So we had to make sure we kept ourselves topped up with the medicinal Glühwein.
The markets were lovely, but being opening night it was absolute chockers. So we went and had another Glühwein... 😁Read more
Freitags spielte zunächst Lucy Railton solo, dann begleitete Kali Malone Stephen O'Malley bei seinem Stück "Les spheres". Nach einem sehr interessanten und informativen "artist talk" samstags spielten die drei zusammen Kalis Komposition "Does spring hide its joy?", die mich schon vor Monaten in Aarhus so begeisterte.Read more
Temperature: -2 at 9am/- 2 at 2 pm/ -3 at 4 pm.
Due to the heavy snowfall, all transport has been cancelled. We were due to train from Munich to Salzburg this morning, but now we are due to depart by bus at 7 pm, fingers crossed.
Michael chose to stay in the warm while I wanted to get out and enjoy the snow. Went back to the markets we went to yesterday. They look quite different with snow on them.
On the 7 pm bus to Salzburg, yah!!!!Read more
Hoy visitamos un museo impresionante!!! Deustches Museum.
Pasamos casi toda la tarde ahí, luego recorrimos el casco antiguo, conocimos unos edificios hermosos!
Nos costó bastante llegar con la Motorhome a estos lugares, es complicado estacionar, no hay mucho lugar pero resolvimos dejándola más alejada y usamos transporte público. Ademas compramos un cochecito a 10 euros para Facundinho.
Mañana temprano nos vamos a visitar un castillo y ya nos vamos para Austria! Besos 😘Read more
Had come across quite a few recommendations that the BMW Welt was worth a visit. It's not a museum but essentially a very over-the-top car showroom that anyone is able to wander about and ogle the latest from BMW, Mini, and Rolls Royce.
There's interactive exhibits, cafes, a fancy restaurant, merch shop, and then some people actually there to buy and pick up their new cars. Being attached to the old Olympic park it was well worth the trip out of town for a look around (assuming you have a daily ticket for transport and don't have to cop the crazy prices for a metro ride).Read more

It was a boring travel day for the most part. We flew from Manchester, England to Munich, Germany this morning. It was very uneventful. We almost had too much time. We got there way early, made it thru security, took our own sweet time having a great breakfast … and then realized our plane was on its final call and RAN thru the airport to be the last one let on. Lost track of time. Woops. But we made it.
We’re getting VERY good at handling all the mass transit in every city. I think back to the first few weeks and it’s a night and day difference. So much easier now that we’ve got so much experience.
After dinner headed to the movies and saw “Thor, Love and Thunder” - it’s a must to see every Marvel movie as it’s coming out when traveling with the massive Marvel geek that Jordan is. It’s still a treat to see the different theaters in each country - and just experience “life” here.
We’re back in hostels for awhile - it’s the norm in most of Europe. The next two nights we’re in a really nice one tho. Brand new. Bunks with privacy screens, small lockers, lights, charging ports and personal fans right in the bunk areas. Such an experience living like this. I’m sure I’m the oldest person in this whole building tho!!Read more
