A city but with a village feel - I Loved it !

Had the real pleasure of a 6 day trip to Munich recently accompanied by some fellow VT'ers.

What a beautiful City and a fascinating insight into Bavarian life.
The food, the beer, the people, the museums, art galleries, palaces etc. were a real treat.

Was hit by the worst snow fall they had experienced in 50 years whilst we were there which didn't stop us exploring Munich itself, but unfortunately put a stop to our plans to take a train out to Schwangau. Next time maybe - and there will be a next time for sure.

Lots of great beer was sampled - and found it to be very forgiving the next day.

Shiny Things

WARNING! : Don't take Rasmus to a place where there are lots of shiny things.

I kept a close eye on him after hearing him say : " If it's shiny - grab it ! " during a walk around the extremely shiny Residence Museum.

Bazoombas !!!

Yes the traditional costume is very beautiful and emphasises the female form perfectly. I asked the waitress if I could take a photo of her costume, but she knew what we were up to really... hehe.

A few of the locals had a laugh at us capturing this moment too!
