Munich, Sep 2013: Part 1
To end my lovely summer before returning to Glasgow, and to uni, Ewan and I travelled to Munich, Germany for a week. (excuse the stereotypical plane picture)
We were lucky enough to have both our flights and accommodation paid for us as a present for Ewan’s 21st from his parents. This left what little money we had to be spent on food and drink! Our flight arrived at around 9.30pm so we went out to grab a bite to eat and sample a German beer. Our hotel was a two minute walk from the main square in Munich, the beautiful Marienplatz.
We were still playing round with the settings on my brand new camera at this point so I’m a not happy with the quality of some of these but here we are loving pizza. I love places where you can get pizza by the slice, seems to be an abroad thing!
The next day we went to explore the hotels surroundings and scope out some attractions we wanted to see. Luckily the sun was shining bright, not like the forecast had told me (I was convinced it was going to rain the whole trip). It’s such a beautiful city and seemed to have a very laid back atmosphere.
The road up from our hotel was covered in designer shops and I tried my hardest to act/look like I could afford them!
We then went for a walk round town and found a lovely German market, not far from our hotel. It was so warm and sunny that before we headed out for lunch we needed to head back to the hotel and rethink our outfit choices – we were melting!
Once we were more suitably dressed for the heat we went to Sausalitos, which is a chain in Germany, maybe other places too. They do great cocktails and Mexican. I got nachos and Ewan got chicken fajitas (so adventurous for our first lunch in Deutschland!!).
We then went for some more exploring and to St Peter’s Church which was the most beautiful church I’d ever seen!
More pictures soon… 🙂
