After two connections, two 3 hour layovers and a looooong flight over the Atlantic we are FINALLY in Munich! It was a 10 hour flight from Portland, but we managed to get a little "shut-eye". The last leg was a short one hour "hop" from Amsterdam. The airport in Munich is quite a distance from town, so we opted for the train rather than a taxi. It was a nice relaxing 45 minute ride into town, and even in our exhausted jet lagged state we managed to find our hotel without any problems. Yaaaaay us!!
We are staying at a small hotel on a pedestrian street that is very near the train station. Our room is tiny, but it's perfectly good enough for us!
Here's our pretty tree-lined street, view from our window:
After a quick check in, we unpacked a few things and hit the street in search of a cold beer and a late lunch. We chose a small sidewalk cafe across from our hotel, and each ordered a "WeisBeir Dunkle"--it was nice and cold, and pretty delicious!
Here's David with his first beer in Germany:
We saw a pretty park across the street and decided to stroll through. Here's the big fountain at the entrance:
We saw this interesting "art" installation--hammocks in the air! They looked very inviting--but no way to get up there!
