Munich







We got to Munich yesterday after a 6 hour train ride from Prague. The train ride was so beautiful! Once again, I promise we will put up pictures. In Munich we went to the city center and it was so fun! It is like the Gateway times 30! There is a glockenspiel (clock) in the center and at certain times of the day when the hour strikes there a figurines at the top of the tower that play out a scene. It is so cute! One great thing about Germany is that everyone rides bikes. So, we rented bikes and went all around Munich. It was so fun! I will have to say that I am reminded again how much I love public transportation in Europe. I love the subways because there are so many and it is just so easy to ride. It is so much better than being stuck in traffic! Speaking of subway, there are so many Subway restaurants in Germany! I was surprised by that. Anyways, we went to a few buildings today where the first meetings were held by Hitler. Once again, history is so much better in person. The only bad thing about Munich is in certain parts there is way too much porn. There are so strip bars everywhere and there is nothing left to the imagination. I really love this city! Tomorrow we are off to the Neuschwanstein castle. Apparently it is the castle the disneyland castle was built after.


So, the third photo is our favorite. Isn't it hilarious? Miss Yummy Yummy!
