Munich

We visited Munich in southern Germany, and suddenly the weather was cold!

We happened to be there during the world’s largest folk festival, Oktoberfest. During these two weeks there are more people in Munich than in the rest of the world combined. Almost 7 million liters of beer were served this year!

Ryan bought Karen this entire stall of “love cookies.”

We also ate a huge pretzel.

Here stands Ryan beneath a giant plate of meat.

We couldn’t afford the 10-euro liters of beer, but we visited each beer tent just to check out the crowds and decorations. Each brewery has its own tent with its own look and feel.

It was jovial, crowded, and fun, but one day at Oktoberfest was plenty for us. How can people do this for two weeks?

We took a day trip out around the Bavarian countryside, stopping in the picturesque village of Fussen. Here is Karen enjoying the autumn leaves, and a few shots of St. Mang’s Abbey.

One stop left on our way home: a few days in Iceland!
