Oktoberfest

11:23 AM

Not sure where to even begin with Oktoberfest! Firstly, getting there was quite an experience in itself.

We took a two hour train ride from Nurnberg to Munich. Along the way, hurdles of people boarded the train, decked out in their best lederhosens and dirndls. Some got the party started ahead of time and would bring their alcohol along the ride. As a result of all the beer, almost all the people would break out singing bavarian songs. Steph and I could hardly contain our giggling. We loved it!

After arriving at the main station in Munich we had to get another train to get to the festival. The stations were ridiculously packed!! We had to squish inside the trains like sardines.....yes let's not get started on the major B.O. That could be a whole story in itself as well. :-P

Finally after forever, we made it to Oktoberfest in one piece. We were in such an awe at everything....all the people, the rides, the massive tents, the food and the beer! It was precisely as I had imagined it.

While we walked around, we couldn't help but notice this delicious cinnamon-ish aroma. Finally Stefan led the way to a stand and got us a cone of toasted almonds. They were soooo good and addicting! Afterwards we began our mission to sneak in to a tent, but little did we know that they were all packed since the a.m. Who goes and drinks beer so early in the morning? Apparently everyone does here, especially during oktoberfest. Some people told us that they come early in the morning and will stay there all frigging day so they won't lose their spot!

We semi entered the Augustiner tent and had a bit of fun there before leaving on our roadtrip.
We definitely had a great time, but I can see why some locals think Oktoberfest is overrated. It's overwhelmingly packed and you have to stand around for hours for a beer.

But anyway, Oktoberfest was something else and we had a blast!
