Yesterday morning I woke up around 10 and decided to go out and explore more of the city with one of my hostel roommates, Tim. He is an Austrian from Vienna and is currently doing 9 months of civil service as a paramedic. We walked into the old town and decided to go up to the […]
This morning I woke up with the sounds of the aforementioned Australian girls talking with perhaps more animation than is necessary at 7:30AM. I thought my earplugs had fallen out, but they were just loud. I went back to sleep and then thought about what I wanted to do with the day around 10AM. I […]
I woke up around the same time as I usually do, got breakfast at the hostel as per usual, and then decided to walk to Schloß Nymphenburg for my big outing of the day. I walked for about 3 miles through a not particularly exciting part of Munich before getting to the palace which was […]
This morning I woke up around 9AM, got breakfast at the hostel, and then headed over to Marienplatz for a 10:45 free walking tour. The tour started with the glockenspiel concert at the new town hall which was pretty campy and not all that impressive. I was disappointed that this kind of glockenspiel wasn’t involved.
Sharon woke me up this morning around 9 to make sure I had enough time to get ready and eat before heading over to the Dachau Concentration Camp together. We got all-you-can-eat breakfast at the hostel for €3,90 which was tasty and had a fair amount of variety. It was here that we figured out […]
I only got about four hours of sleep last night. I fell asleep around 1:30, and then woke up a little before 6 because the sun was rising and I was facing the direction of an opened window. It was alright because it gave me plenty of time to pack and allowed me to catch […]
This morning I woke up around 9AM and headed over to Cafe Gundel, a traditional German bakery founded in 1896. I got two pastries and a cappuccino for €7,20, journalled on their outdoor patio, and then ventured off to find a famous hiking trail on the other side of the river.
Last night I didn’t sleep very well at all. The guy above me (the one who had advised me not to move because it would threaten the quality of his sleep) tossed and turned all night, got in and out of bed several times, and made the bed move a lot. After he checked out […]
This morning I woke up around 8AM, finished packing, and got breakfast at the hostel with one of my hostel roommates who is originally from Mexico City but is working in Ireland as a short-order cook in a Dublin pub. I then tried to take the bus to Berlin Central to catch a train to […]
This morning I met Eva at Kafeemitte, a coffee shop near a U-Bahn station that was easily accessible for both of us. I got a cappuccino and a brie, raddish, and arugula croissant for €6. It was very tasty, I would definitely go again.
