Octoberfest!

overcast 53 °F

Yesterday the adventure took us to Munich to the best place to drink beer. Octoberfest!!! It was a blast & Munich is a very nice city to walk around and see all the different sights and smells. It has been a great trip so far, I am not looking forward to the school part of my trip but we should find out are schedule tomorrow when we arrive at the college. Then we can start planing out our trips around Europe :)

So far this place is great! The food is awesome, the beer is great, and the people are so friendly even though I stick out like an American lol. I have had a little problem with the language but I think I am picking it up faster now that I am here actually speaking it. I find it funny that they mostly listen to American music here so that is a nice change of pace from only speaking German.

On Sundays there is nothing open but we did find a BK that was open. There was a festival in town so we checked it out...not sure what it was for but it kind of reminded me of a farmers market from back home. I ended up getting a nice passport wallet that is hand made leather for a good price. Found out there is a lot of Germans that are a fan of American muscle cars! I saw one of the best restoration jobs on a 66 Chevy pickup, everything was mint and clean on it. There was a couple of Camaro SS cars too. I saw something pretty funny at the Burger King we ate at, as we sit down with are food we watch as a kid around the age of 10 walks in to the restaurant with his mom holding a cat!! They sat down and the kid had the cat sitting next to him on the table as he ate lol. Crazy stuff that would not happen in America.

Last night in the hotel before we go to the college and start are orientation for are classes. we found a pretty cool vending machine that I personally think we should have in America...a vending machine that serves beer!!! It is not every day you see that see that lol.

Till next time,

Great posting on your blog today, Brandon. I'm hoping you all have good schedules so you can still see some of the sights on the weekends.

I'm also hoping they clean the tables really good at that BK you were at...because I would hate using that table after a cat sat on it! Yikes!!

Have a good time and be safe!
