Munich

Munich is incredibly beautiful and filled with the most amazing history!! I learnt all about the history by going on one of Mike's Bike Tours. Our awesome guide (funnily enough, not called Mike...) took us around to the breathtaking sites, passing through parks and stopping over for a ginormous lamb knuckle lunch that literally almost killed me. I'm not much of a beer drinker (although my beer pong crew might beg to differ...) but we also bought mugs of beer bigger than my face. I had to bribe a red head girl on tour with 5 euro's to down my beer because I just couldn't finish it and damn she did well!!! Although I can't remember her lasting long for the rest of the evening after that!!!








In most of the places I have stopped at around Europe, there is usually some statue of some sort that people tend to rub to acquire some luck or promise of returning to that particular city. To gain love or happiness etc... In Munich there are two lions that even the locals walk past every day and rub if they can get to them. Unfortunately these two lions, right outside a gorgeous cathedral, are going to be taken away soon and replaced. They will be going to some museum of sorts... which is sad but also pretty cool as the guide told us that we would be some of the last groups to be rubbing these statues.



As a surfer back home in South Africa, I was so excited to reach the end of our bike tour because right at the end our guide took us to this famous surf spot. In the middle of Munich!!!!! Whadafuck??? 

Literally an artificial wave built on a river called Eisbach flowing through the Englischer  Garten, I was completely and utterly mind-blown!! Surfer's line up one at a time and take turns at surfing this incredible wave. 

I mean, how cool can you get!?!?!?!!?





Yet again, we had another massive night out in Europe when we dressed up in Dirndl's (for the ladies) and Lederhosen's (for the guys) and went out to the famous Hofbräuhaus am Platzl.














I LOVED Munich.... It had so much more character than Berlin did. But before I hopped on to Berlin, I stopped over in the beautiful city called Prague! 

Until next time!

Over and Out.

  19. I'd love to see Munich or just anywhere in Germany actually. Really dying to visit this country more and more of late. But beer! I'm not a huge fan though I've always said I would down a few pints in Germany! And that artificial wave thing, OMG reminds me of the 'wave pool' thing we have in Australia hahaha! Except this is soooo much more awesome than that gimmick.

  29. Hiya.
    I've been to Munich once before didn't get to see much of the city because we just slept there and the next day I was going to Italy by train. But I would love to go there again.
    I've to Berlin when I was 14, it was my first time abroad and everything looked amazing for me. And I lived in Prague for 8 months and it is truly a beautiful city.
    Thanks for following my Blog.
