European Vacation Part 1

Almost a year ago Mark and I decided we wanted to book a big vacation.  We both wanted to go to Munich for Oktoberfest so planned our vacation around that!

We started off in Munich for Oktoberfest then headed to Berlin and ended our trip in London.

First stop, Munich.

Off to Germany we go!IMG_8347

Our flight left on Thursday evening, we tried our hardest to sleep on the plane so we wouldn’t be jet lagged when we arrived in Munich.  We got in at about 11am Munich time Friday morning.  We went straight to our hotel, took a quick shower and headed out to explore Munich.

We rented bikes and headed out to Nymphenburg Palace.

That night we headed to a Beer Garden near the Oktoberfest grounds.  We had half chicken, beer and pretzels.

The next day we rented a car and headed about two hours outside of Munich to Neuschwanstein Castle (what the Disney castle is based off of!).

We rented a brand new Mercedes, this car was intense! IMG_8394
