Munich Part 1

-

Can you tell one from the other? :)


AHAHAHAHA isn't this just awful??  I could not stop LOL'ing in the car I practically spilled my soda! :p


Napoleon looks quite annoyed hahaha 


Our Westin hotel room.. the room was typical but the one thing I will say is they have the best beds!  I'm a bit of an insomniac but for whatever reason whenever my head hits a Westin pillow it's lights out fior me!

I WANT ONE!!!  I'm trying to convince The Hubs that I absolutely NEED a Westin bed hahahahah


I want a shiny bathroom like this with gorgeous black shiny marble counter tops!  Something about black marble about it is so understated and elegant!


The shower had a rainfall sprout you know the kind that sprinkles water from the top and it's like really round and big so it falls all over you like it's raining. 

 I WANT ONE TOO!!! bahahahahah I'm having bathroom envy :p


YAY for free slippers!!  

Miso Soup & pretty pink tea!

California Roll, Unagi, Ebi, Hamachi, Tamago and Tuna

This is the Munich Residenz.. pretty much every major city in Germany (that I've seen so far) has a Residenz which is where the original Monarchs use to live.  I particularly loved visiting this residenz because the major shopping district is actually build AROUND this building bahahahaha!!


Hofbrauhaus the most infamous Brewery in all of Germany!  A lot of the Octoberfest activites are hosted in this Brauhaus.  An interesting tidbit is that Wolfgang Mozert lived right around the corner from this brauhaus and claimed that many of his pieces were composed after being "fortified" at this particular brauhaus.  I played piano for many many years so I thought this was particularly interesting!! 


The place is huge and it's a total tourist trap but if you're in Munich Germany it's almost like you HAVE to come here!  The energy's pretty crazy in there and it's not even Octoberfest I can only imagine what it's like at that time of the year.




Suckling Pig

Omgosh this tasted just like Chinese Roast Pork.. you know the kind you get at the Chinese supermarket and they cut it from this GIANT piece of meat?!  It was so yummy it was like being back in San Francisco!!  Oh how I miss you SF!!

Potato Gratin

Chicken & Mushrooms in a tomato based cream sauce w/ Spatzle

Fried Pork Sausage & Sauerkraut

We totally over ordered because I wanted to try everything haha!  

Let's just say the doggies ate VERY well later that evening in the hotel room. 



Munich's infamous Marienplatz with the life-sized cookoo clock known as the Rathaus-Glockenspiel.  





The cookoo clock chimes at 11am and 12pm noon.

The clock contains 32 life-sized figures that re-enact two separate stories from the 16th century.



I was very excited for the lifesize cookoo clock!!  The trumpeters are blaring!


Do you see the jouster and his trusty stead go by? 

Earl Grey & Chai Latte

My Dapper Hubby :)



Absolute awesomeness right?!

  2. Yes, total absolute awesomeness Lisa! My fiance loves HB brewery! We went to one in Ohio last year, and it was such a fun atmosphere! He and I both have German in our heritage, so it was a cool experience.

    I have bathroom and bed envy too! I want a big, white, plushy comforter and pillows because I have insomnia too.
