  • Day47


    August 3, 2017 in Germany

    Overnight in Munich- walked down to the glockenspiel- unfortunately we weren't there in time to see it in action, then on to the Hofbräuhaus for a 'little' drink and some hearty German food! It's been a 'few' year since I experienced the Hofbräuhaus in my youth!

    Activist Juice

    August 31, 2016 in Germany

    A slower day today. I am writing this in a beer garden in the English gardens. More about that later.
    I started the day with a hop on hop off bus.
    Last night I walked from the train station to the hotel but with sore feet from all the walking I did in London I wanted to save the walking for touristy things, not getting there.
    The tramline right outside the hotel is being dug up (although I found out later there is a replacement bus) but there is a train station a few minutes from the hotel that takes me into the main station. It took me about 5 minutes but I eventually managed to buy myself a 3 day ticket.

    The sightseeing bus was just okay. The sights are wonderful but the commentary was about 30 seconds behind the bus so somethings were missed. I do have a good idea of the city, there aren't the crowds like I saw on London, given the population is 1.8 million no wonder it feels similar to Perth crowd wise.

    After the tour I made my way to the Viktualienmarkt which is an open air market that sells a lot of bratwurst. It sells much more that that but wurst shops must have made up 1/4 of the shops.
    I received my first "God's greeting" at the market.

    From now until I get to Dijon my posts will most likely contain references to The Chalet School series I read as a child and continue to read as an adult. If you aren't one of the small group who recognise these then ... I don't know, just pretend you do?

    I had bratwurst and krautsalada (badically a cheese kransky and cabbage salad) for lunch at the market.

    The two apps I use most are google maps and now itranslate. Itranslate was very helpful today at the market. I was trying to translate the ingredients in a fresh juice, orange was easy, erdbeere is strawberry but I misspelt ananas and it came out activist! It was actually pineapple.

    I bought several cheeses, ham, liverwurst, olives, tirol schuettelbrot (a really hard flat rye bread but nice), dip, brambleberries, figs, yoghurt and probably other stuff I haven't mentioned.

    There was only one place where the server didn't speak english, she was the one who gave me the first "gruss gott" and I managed to make myself understood and bought some alm butter.

    It was a really nice day until about 3pm or so when it started to get hot. I finished up and came back to the hotel.
    This evening I packed up my purchases and went to the English gardens for a picnic. Rather than gardens it is more of an english park in which you would expect to find deer.
    When the bus entered the park I saw how dense it was in parts so decided to get off one stop earlier where the beer garden was and there were lots of people.
    To give you an idea of the size it has more than 70km of paths.

    As the sun went down I made my way to the beer garden and decided to have a drink. I bought a pretzel as well which I'll have for breakfast.
    The beer garden is the place to go if you want meat and lots of it. People had plates with half a chicken or a massive shank, some just that while others had sides as well.

    Nymphenburg Castle
    Just to prove that it is me - relaxing on the english gardens.

    Sicily - Preparations

    May 20, 2013 in Germany

    At some point in my life, I had to hold a training for Sicilian wines. Preparing this, I figured out, that sicily was owned by various, very different parties.

    There were the greek until 500 years B.C. Then it was under the byzantium regime until 800 A.C. After that came the arabs until 1000 A.C. Then came the normans (!) and various other parties until it was held under the kingdom of naples. During that time the mafia rose...

    So that sounded like a very diversified history, which should stand for a very interesting culture on the largest island of the mediterranian sea...

    Day 50: Travel Day

    August 9, 2017 in Germany

    Today we travelled from Lauterbrunnen to Munich on a total of 4 trains in 8 hours. It was rough as we were so sore and stiff from rafting, but we made every train and I watched a decent amount of Netflix.

    When we got to Munich, we wanted to see how much a massage was. Turns out they are cheaper here in Europe so we decided to get one. She kicked the crap out of me.

    Before we had our massage, we grabbed salads at the restaurant just outside and they were so good. We've been eating so much pasta, sandwiches and chilli on this trip that salads were certainly a nice change!

    Spaziergang durch München

    February 12, 2018 in Germany

    Hello München! Heute einen richtigen tollen Spaziergang durch die Stadt gemacht. Wir starten am Odeonsplatz, laufen durch den Hofgarten Richtung Haus der Kunst. Hier befindet sich mein Lieblingsplatz in München, die Eisbachwelle. Ich könnte stundenlang auf der Brücke neben dem Haus der Kunst stehen und den Surfern zuschauen, die wirklich IMMER da sind.
    Danach geht's zu Fräulein Grüneins. Das ehemalige Toilettenhäuschen mit schäbigem Ruf wurde zu einem weiß-grünem Kleinod. Auf der Karte stehen täglich zwei Mittagsgerichte, leckerer hausgemachter Orangen-Ingwer-Tee, naturtrübe Apfelsaftschorle vom Ammersee und vieles, vieles mehr.
    Wenn ihr jetzt Lust auf München habt, dann könnt ihr über euren Zug plus euer Hotel super easy buchen. Ohne Zugbindung und mit beliebig vielen Übernachtungen!

    Englischer Garten

    July 17, 2017 in Germany

    Die neue Kamera musste natürlich gleich ausprobiert werden. Dazu machte ich mich auf in den Englischen Garten, bis es Zeit war mich zum Flughafen zu begeben, um endlich die Reise nach Malaga antreten zu können. Und dieses Mal gelang das Projekt. Spät abends kam ich in meinem Hostel in Malaga an, gönnte mir noch ein Bier und haute mich aufs Ohr.Read more

    December 21, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 4 °C

    The name of the city is derived from the Old/Middle High German term Munichen, meaning "by the monks". It derives from the monks of the Benedictine order, who ran a monastery at the place that was later to become the Old Town of Munich; hence the monk depicted on the city's coat of arms. Munich was first mentioned in 1158. Catholic Munich strongly resisted the Counter-Reformation and was a political point of divergence during the resulting Thirty Years' War, but remained physically untouched despite an occupation by the Protestant Swedes.[8][citation needed] Once Bavaria was established as a sovereign kingdom in 1806, it became a major European centre of arts, architecture, culture and science.Read more
