I still remember how this started:
Scene – At work, one day after the first keg is tapped in Munich.
Me – “It’d be fun to go to Oktoberfest someday…”
John – “You know, we have a 3-day weekend coming up. I know someone who has gone the last 12 years for this weekend. Would you like to meet him?”
Me – (Quickly texting Cate about this revelation), “Uh, yeah! Sure!” (Gets text back from Cate, starts looking at flights and hotels)
…And off we went! Three years in a row, so far. What a spectacular time to be in Bavaria! Fantastic atmosphere to go along with beautiful weather, food, drink, and scenery. Definitely a must-visit, even for those who don’t prefer the malted hops-flavored brews that dominate the area. Just order a radler. 🙂
