Munchen

Munich was merely a waypoint on our trip. A place to pass through on our way to other places- into Munich airport and then quickly on a train to the Alps; back into Munich and then on a midnight train going (anywhere?) to Budapest. But, Munich surprised us. We arrived around 2 PM and began a long stroll around the city, enjoying the parks on the Isar river. We even stumbled across some surfers- I didn't believe it either, but it's totally a thing. It even has its own wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eisbach

After a dinner of pretzels, sausages, and beer at Lowenbrau beer hall, we had a few hours to kill, so we went for a walk. However, after 10 minutes we found a free Munich Symphony concert in one of the church plazas- a warm 70 degree summer evening with (did I mentioned free?) live symphony music- not too bad. Even the rain didn't bother us, and we were back at the station around 11:30 for our 12 AM departure to Budapest.

This all sounds lovely, "but where are the pictures?" you may ask. Unfortunately my memory card was full, so you'll have to take my word for it, Munich is awesome.
