Day 5 - 29th June 2009

Rush. Well after only a few hours sleep we got our things together and went to pick up our laundry. We had to buy a bag in the morning to complete our reorganisation efforts from the previous night. We’d accumulated so much crap along the way and another bag was needed to be better prepared for our onward journey and to avoid the dreaded excess baggage charge. It all happened without complication which afforded us some time for a meal before making our way to the train station.
Lunch. The food wasn’t much chop but the café was next door to one of the Munchen Filmfest theatres. I was thankfully able to get hold of a Filmfest poster that I desperately craved. Now that all ticks were in boxes, we could commence our departure ceremony (carting our f’ing luggage). I cherish the day that I can freely walk the streets without being consumed by the thought that I will soon have to transform into a luggage mule.
Train. I love German trains. They don’t only look cool but are so comfortable and functional. Our global pass ran out a few days ago so we had to pay for the ride to Frankfurt. Not cheap.
Munchen. Could it be our favourite place? Definitely in our top 3. Munich had all the modern day creature comforts of a big city but maintained its inner charm and regional feel without appearing forced. The people were great. So very friendly and welcoming. The food and beer definitely rated high but weren’t the only attractions. We’ll have to come back for Oktoberfest some year. That’s a promise!
