    Jour 2 - Visite de Munich

    July 31 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Aujourd’hui, nous avons visité Munich à pied et à vélo ✌🏼
    Nous avons débuté la journée par le parc olympique de Munich où ont eu lieu les Jo 1972. Nous avons fait une balade à pied sur les berges puis avons monté la colline qui surplombe le parc et la ville de Munich.
    Nous avons ensuite pic-niqué au bord du lac du parc olympique un des meilleurs Doner Kebab de Munich (verdict : excellent 😋)

    Nous avons ensuite passé l’après midi à parcourir la ville à vélo et nous sommes arrêtés en fin de journée au plus grand parc de la ville: l’Englisher Garten où l’on a pu voir des surfers et tremper les pieds dans l’eau.

    10km de marche et 20km de vélo pour notre dernier jour à Munich. Demain, nous traverserons la frontière direction Salzburg en Autriche ! 🇩🇪 > 🇦🇹

    Day 15: Munich, Germany 🇩🇪🇩🇪

    July 19 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    After an energizing evening and morning with our good friends Meike and Herbert, we were ready for a wonderful day of riding to Munich!
    The 60 mile route from Ingolstadt to Munich was filled with rolling hills of hops, corn, and full bloom sunflowers! We had 45 miles by noon, and it was another beautiful ride! The last 12 miles were along a crushed gravel bicycle trail paralleling the Isar River. About 5 miles from our destination of the Japanese area of the English tea garden Jim had a rear flat tire. It was luckily along the river where we could repair it then cool are feet in clear water. After we cooled off, we arrived and drank a few cold beverages, and filled our bellies with Bavarian sausage, sauerkraut, and of course a giant pretzel! After cleaning up at our AirBnB we did a 8 mile ride to some sights in Munich. The City center with the famous Glockenspiel was a relaxing area to soak in the atmosphere, and the hot weather had thousands of people picnicking, partying, and jump in the River of the English Gardens. We are always amazed at the quietness and respect of others in large crowded areas. We stayed in the English Garden until the darkness ended another special day.Read more

    Christmas in Munich

    December 25, 2019 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 4 °C

    2 pre nights/day before our cruise; we are going to see and do as much as we can, even inspite of the rain and wind. Today after landing early, quick customs and baggage claim, we headed to the Lufthansa Express (57 EU for 2 roundtrip transferes) to take us from airport to center city then short taxi ride to the Westin Grand. So glad rooms were available for early checkin; we could drop our luggage, changes clothes then head to the Cathedral of Munich were we enjoyed the celebration of Christmas Day liturgy with their Cardinal, 2 Bishops, priests and Deacons. Yes, it was in German, but we could follow along with the help of the liturgy aids. After, and now in the rain, we wondered around the Marianplatz to see the cleanup from their Christmas Markets, listen to the Glockenspiel play at 12N, and find a nice little place for some great German food and beer. Walked back to the hotel, still raining, but we did it. Great day, so ready for a full night sleep and praying for a bit of sunshine tomorrow. Enjoying the journey!!!Read more

    Englishcher Garten Sud

    September 15, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    On arrival back in Munich, we headed to the English Garden, a huge green space in the centre of Munich, where the locals come to swim, surf, sun bake - including nude sun baking in a particular quadrant - exercise, read, enjoy a picnic, etc. etc. Of course there are also several beer gardens and cafes to eat and drink beer. It’s a pity I dislike beer, as wine is not always an option, so I have been drinking water, which is not a bad thing.

    The Englischer Garten is one of the largest urban parks in the world. The layout has undergone many changes over the centuries as new buildings and green spaces were added. In 1789, Elector Carl Theodor ordered that a public park be established along the Isar River. He assigned an Englishman, Benjamin Thompson, who worked at the time for the Bavarian Army. The park got it’s name because it was laid out in the style of an English country park.The network of paths equate to 78 kms, and there are soccer fields as well as a Japanese teahouse.

    As most people in Munich live in apartments, this type of green space is crucial to their well being. One suggestion from me would be to ban smoking, as that does spoil the experience slightly, and maybe create separate bike paths.

    My Accidental Marathon

    March 2, 2020 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 6 °C

    I have been hiking for weeks. When I first got to Germany my time was split between school and hiking and running. In the evenings sometimes I would go to meet ups where I would have a drink with strangers. I even tried out salsa and realized that in Munich no one wants to teach a lead. Yet as time has gone on I find more and more that I love hiking in mountains the people I meet there and the adventures and invitations that come from there. That's how I wound up in Berlin!

    Yet after all these adventures I realized that I've not been running and I miss it. I have signed up for 50 km in Switzerland in August did I have not run more than 30 since I got here. I haven't run more than 30 in a row. So today I decide to run 30 km to Freising.

    The only problem is that by the time I run 12 kilometers I passed a sign that says "Freising 27 km."

    I try not to think about this too hard because I am here to run and I'm not going to stop running before I hit at least 30 kilometers so I keep running to freising.The day is sunny and I run along the ice are back and forth as it weaves back and forth along trails and empty Woods where no leaves live. sometimes there is a trail next to the water very close and fun to bounce on as I run yet often the trail is as wine and clear as a small and gravel Road. Either way I keep running. I have headphones in and I'm listening to an audiobook about how our bodies affect the way our mind works and that maybe our mind is less in control of our bodies and ourselves and that it is instead more a coordinator and our body is the one in charge. The more I listen to this the more it resonates with me as I feel my body and let it move. I do love to feel my body in motion.

    Yet when the sign starts to send freising 8 km my body does not feel so lovely. I pause and check my distance I've already run 32 km and I did not bring supplies for the next eight. Yet when I look at the map there is no convenient place to stop running and take a train home. We are not in freising and the nearest train station is also 5 km away. Given the choice between an empty train Station Drive kilometers away and a train station with a restaurant and a bar 8 km away I know the right answer. I keep running.

    I run for as long and as hard as I can yet after three hours of running I have no water and my body is tired so I change between running and walking and jogging as I get more and more thirsty. Next time I do this I will have to bring snacks. I hear peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are a great choice. Either way I do get to the freising train station and there is a restaurant and there is beer. And milkshakes.

    I skip the next train so I can have a burger and a milkshake and after a little while I'm buy a beer to sip on the train back to Munich. I'm always amazed and how fast a person can run. it only took three and a half hours for me to get to freising, and it wound up being 42 kilometers. And here on the train it will still take one full hour to get back to Munich. Does this mean I was running at one-quarter the speed of the train?

    I have hunger that does not stop. This is a wonderful opportunity to break every diet rule in the book. I spend the afternoon searching and eating for everything, them catch up with friends for drinks.

    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!Read more

    Day 2

    June 1, 2017 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Day 2
    Started off the day by having to eat breaky by myself for the first time. But I took advantage of the all you can eat buffet fitting in quite a bit as my budget is extremely tight so meals and what I can eat are limited if I don't want to end up broke

    Next up was going on the tour of the Dachau Concentration Camp. I knew it would be confronting of which it was. For a place that was built to only fit 6000 people by the end of the world war it had over 200000. It was crazy to even think that places like this existed! It wa an amazing experience and if your ever in Munich I would highly recommend. Our tour guide was really good he was an Irish man whose knowledge was amazing. I meet to lovely girls who are studying physio at uni in Townsville. They are in there third year, who are on a 7 week trip around Europe. They are super friendly and I'm going out with them to the English gardens which has the second largest beer garden worldwide so that will be pretty cool

    I can't confirm yet but I think I'm doing well with the jet lag so far. I went to sleep last night as I would at home so hopefully I get into a routine pretty quickly. In saying that I am very tired the day was big lots of walking and in the sun.

    It really surprised me about the weather here so humid and hot in general too. Yesterday the humidity was at 93%. The hostel was very stuffy the have no air conditioner or ventilation. I swapped hostels this arvo to literally 2 doors down as my first accomodation didn't have enough availability when I booked

    About to go down to happy hour(or hours 4:30 to 8pm) with Darcy and Sam (girls I met) then we are off to dinner

    Will report again soon👍

    It kinda reminded me of Greenwhich Park. I think it was designed by an Englishman in an 'English Style'
