I found Nina!!
|Nina and me!!|
Met Nina at her hotel, Hotel Uhland, which is a freaking stone’s throw from the Oktoberfest grounds; talk about the perfect location. Met some gentlemen from Norway, chatted them up a bit, and shared some laughs. Once Nina and came down to the lobby…off to Oktoberfest!!!
First stop: the Hofbrauhaus tent, which was awesome!! The sheer number of people in this place was amazing. We had some food, some amazing beers, laughed a lot, and got caught up. Afterwards, a couple of Nina’s friends joined us and, well, we had some more beers. A lot more!
|A Merry band of drinkers|
After we parted ways, I made it back to my hotel, this time without going who knows how many blocks in the wrong direction. Of course, I couldn’t leave without buying some Oktoberfest souvenirs, but this time I did not forget them, as I did yesterday.
|Wouldn’t be a good traveler if I didn’t get any souvenirs.|
Still, before I forget, I need to buy a beer stein for myself and a Munich magnet for T. I’ll do that in the morning though, before I leave for Zurich. I saw some at the Munich HBF train station, which is perfect because that’s where I board the train to Zurich. All in all, Munich was awesome!! Oktoberfest was awesome; now to see what Zurich has to offer.
