    July 1, 2015 in Germany ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Tonight Jessie and I went to the famous Hofbaühaus for dinner and drinks. I had roast pork with crackling and gravy, it was delicious. Soon after we finished dinner the others turned up for a few drinks and it wasn't long before everyone was swinging their glasses around. James bought what I would call a leather 'fly swatter' and that ended with everyone hitting each other until it broke. Don't ask me how but Kevin managed to break a glass.Read more

    Treffpunkt 8 Uhr bei Hundriesers wie immer

    Die Zimmer sind verteilt und das erste Glas Wein haben wir auch inzwischen getrunken. Die Vermieterin ist sehr nett und hat uns alles auf französisch erklärt. Verstanden hab ich sie, aber antworten war schwierig mit deutsch und englisch gemischt.
    Zum Abendessen gab es klassische französische Spaghetti 🍝

    A walking tour though Munich and then dinner at Hofbräuhaus.

    Dodgers Alley:
    Hilter had installed a monument on the side of the loggia to commemorate the lost lives of a few of his party members, Hilter insisted that passers-by salute the monument, to avoid passing by people would head down Viscardigasse behind Feldherrnhalle to dodge having to salute.
    The curved line of golden cobblestones symbolises the path taken by the 'dodgers'.

    Waterfalls waterfalls! Free day

    December 3, 2018 in Germany ⋅ 🌬 12 °C

    Got up by 9-930am. Went downstairs for a wonderful buffet breakfast. Back to room to bundle up for a walk into town. We used “” app which for some reason took us about 2 miles out of the way from where we wanted to go. We saw a lot of old beautiful buildings, but very city like and boring. We found our way back on track to Haxnbauer Restaurant. we passed so many upscale shops and prettier buildings, definitely felt better and more like a village. We had a fantastic Pork Knuckle for lunch that they are known for. It had the yummiest and crispiest skin on it! . As we walked back to hotel, through the English Garden, which is a huge park, there is a river that runs through it with many waterfalls and a pretty rapid flow/ current. There were actually people surfing in it with shorter boards but really surfing, wetsuits and all! Rested a little while in the room before meeting our group in the lobby at 6. Robert is our tour guide, English accent. 43 people are on the tour. Mostly USA , a few from Canada , 4 crazy ladies that we had met in the bar . It’ll be great.Read more

    München-Venedig beginnt bei Nina & Peer

    July 8, 2019 in Germany ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Unsere Wanderung des „Traumpfad München Venedig“ beginnt bei Nina und Peer, auch liebevoll unsere „Ground Crew“ genannt 😍 Ohne dieses Beste Team der Welt wären wir erstmal ziemlich aufgeschmissen gewesen. Die beiden sind die Besten!!

    Schon seit Abreise Ende Mai, aber verstärkt letzte Woche, haben wir weitere Pakete zu Peers Firma geschickt mit Dingen, bei denen wir unterwegs gemerkt haben, dass wir sie noch uuunbedingt brauchen. Leider sind alle Bestellungen auch noch einzeln verschickt worden, und so hatte Peer ewig viele Pakete erhalten und schon Kommentare von seiner Empfangsdame dafür kassiert 🙈 Nachdem dann alle Pakete inklusive unserer großen Rucksäcke Nina und Peers Wohnzimmer belagert haben stellte Peer fest, dass unser Leben für das nächste Jahr gerade so ziemlich in diesem Zimmer liegt. Jupp 😅

    Den Montag haben wir genutzt, um das Münchener Bruttoinlandsprodukt nach oben zu treiben, ganz besonders in unserem Lieblingsladen Globetrotter - der in München hat sogar ne Wasserfontäne IM Laden!! 😍 So konnten wir noch die letzten nötigen Vorbereitungen für die Alpenüberquerung treffen.

    P.S.: Was für ein Luxus es ist, Wasser direkt aus der Leitung trinken zu können merkt man immer erst, wenn man diesen Luxus nicht mehr hat! In den letzten Wochen ging das nicht, und da mussten wir immer zusehen, dass wir Trinkwasser im Haus haben. Einmal bin ich nachts aufgewacht mit mega Durst und wir hatten kein Wasser mehr, das ging gar nicht. Zum Glück hab ich dann noch ein paar Schlücke in meiner Trinkblase im Wanderrucksack gefunden! 😅

    Munich, Linderhof & Oberammegau Barvaria

    December 4, 2018 in Germany ⋅ 🌧 8 °C

    It’s go time....wake up call at 6:30am and hit the ground running. The bus was ready to leave at 8:15am and we had a local tour guide for about 1.5 hours. Cari said it was an ugly city, mostly concrete and of course the weather didn’t help. It was cool and clear. We toured around the city listening to interesting and non interesting facts. We went to a huge Nyphenberg Palace which covered mile in length. And belonged to Ludwig I.
    BMW headquarters
    Olympic arena
    Hitter headquarters had been been converted to a music school. We only had 1.5 hours at the Marienplatz Center for shopping, eating lunch and watching the glocknspiel. Once the bus tour was over it started raining. We decided to start with Ghulwine one strawberry and one peach. The drink was e4, with a deposit of e4. Every vendor had a different mug they used. We returned ours!
    Lunch at Piazza Maria bacon cheeseburger , Cari asked for mustard and she had no idea what it was. They only had ketchup and a bottle pome Frits sauce but looked like mayo. Fried goat cheese triangles and mixed green salad yummy 😋
    Back to the bus for our journey to Linderhof which was 1.5 hours away. Cari took a nice little nap. As we got closer the weather became worse and by the time we reached our designation it was cold and raining.
    As we waited for our tour time it started snowing....and by the time we left the mountains were dusted with snow. Pretty cool to see!
    Rain to snow - snow dusted mountains
    Bavaria is a state 13 million people
    Mostly forested
    Cafe Paradiso, which is owned by Italians and even had flag painted on the front awing. We shared a piece of chocolate and walnut cake and had Cari asked for the check in Italian “Il conto perpiacere and when the host answered in his fluent Italian,
    she responded: How much?? Hahaha. We didn’t have much time to look around, but very cute village. The air was wintery crisp.
    *Travel to the south near the Alps
    palace Ludwig III. Gold leaf, lapis lazul fireplace, porcelain decor, lived by himself and model his palace after the French. He died at 40 mysteriously and the family turned the palace into a museum 6 weeks after his death because he spent all the money decorating it. It took 9 years to build and he lived there for 7 years.
