Wednesday:

Good day today! Even though I woke up fairly groggy from the
night before; I was damn excited. Today was Munich day. I get to the airport a
good hour early; and because I'm an idiot, end up standing in line for the
wrong airline for 20 minutes....>.<. After getting that straightened out, I
get my ticket from the ACTUAL airline; and get to the terminal fine and dandy.
A short one hour flight later and bam; I'm in Munich. I pretty much just walked
around the airport for forty or so minutes while I waited for Laneise, my
friend from school, to land. We had a bit of a fiasco while trying to meet up;
it turns out we landed at completely opposite ends of the airport and didn't
know. As a result, it took us about 30 minutes, and 10 phone calls to finally figure
out where we could meet up. We hopped onto a train to the city as quickly as we
could, and 20 minutes later arrived in the city center. Today, we just walked
around the city; from about 1:00-9:00 we walked around everywhere. This city is
simply amazing. The architecture around the old city is stunning, as is the
river, the parks, everything. Smack dab in the center of the city is a HUGE
park; miles long, and probably a mile wide. You'd never know that you were in
city if you had just been dropped off in the middle. And that was only one of
the many parks this city has. At around 9:00, from the advice of a friend and
of the guidebook, we stumbled into the Hofbrauhaus. We were immediately met
with a loud, live polka music, a huge rowdy dinning hall full of tourists and
local Bavarians tourist watching. We sat down a table with, it turns out, a
couple from Munich. The husband recommended a AMAZING beer only brewed during
May. It turns out, beer at the Hofbrauhaus only comes in one liter servings; I'm
definitely fine with that. I ended up having my liter, and Laneises, apparently
she wasn't really down for drinking a beer, but ordered one any ways. The couple
there was extremely friendly, and actually came to the brewery to converse with
tourists. They recommended a few small German towns to visit, and I was told
that Poland and Hungary are definitely worth seeing. I passed within 10 seconds
of my head hitting the pillow; I was damn tired.
