just a few more...











I loved Munich. The people were friendly, the shops were gorgeous, the cafes were lovely, and the apple strudel! I wanted to bring some home in my suitcase... literally leave my clothes and just fill it with apple strudel... And then there were the pretzels (bretzels)... pretzels with butter, pretzels with cream cheese, pretzels with beer (only people from Philadelphia can understand the enormity of this discovery...)... And the beer! The best beer I´ve ever tasted... and I´ve tasted a lot of beer. So basically it was a day of eating, drinking, and taking photos... Perfection...
These are the last of them. Thank you for sitting through them with me. I feel like the next door neighbor who makes you sit through 2 hours of vacation slides... And I can´t even offer you a coffee... or a pretzel...

Happy weekend!

¡Besos!

Lived in Munich for 3 years (work related) and yes the ApfelStrudel with warm vanilla sauce is killing! (with a dash of cinnamon)...yummy. Don't like beer, but those biergartens are great. Got addicted to the pretzels (huge chuncks of salt) and this drink - forgot the name, but it's coca cola mixed with fanta. Hm....I think I need to book a hotel in Munich this weekend, thx, XXX, Carmie.

Ida Nielsen said...

Le blÖg d'Ötli said...

I'm already waiting another few more ;) I like your "reports" ! besos !

liza said...

We'd go home if it were like sitting through the next door neighbor's photos! But we're still here, still happily coming back for more.
My sister and I visited Munich during our backpacking trip in 1983(we were 19!). We stayed in a hostel. We were followed back there one night by two guys. They kept a respectable distance, but we were watchful - knew they were there. When we got close to the hostel door, we heard one of them say quietly, but deliberately, "Land Shark." Then, "candy gram." We cracked up. (if you are too young to know this - early Sat Night Live - lucky you!)

Christy said...

I live right outside Philly and just love those pretzels. I'm happy I stumbled across your blog - your august meme looks like it was lots of fun! I'm so envious that you are (apparently) an expat living in Spain. My husband is Welsh - I hope we get to cross the pond to live one day too!

kyndale said...

Beautiful photos..:)

julochka said...

i went to munich last year and was amazed at how people really were walking around in those tyrolean costumes and eating in the beer halls. it wasn't just for tourists!

down a side street, there was a raw restaurant and my cousins, who i was with, refused to let me try it. i'm going to have to go back one day. but i'll probably need a pretzel afterwards. :-)
