So I went to Munich, Germany. It was Oktoberfest so why not?
It wasn’t some big drunken orgy festival of good beer and tourists. It was a lot like a state fair but with giant beer tents all blasting out John Denver’s “Country Roads”. No kidding - they loved the shit out of that song.
I got to eat amazing pickles. I had a mouth full of a pickle when the two nice German girls came up to pose for a photo with me. My companion set that all up while I was buying the pickle.
Then I had amazing beer, pretzels, and more pickles because, whatever, best food on earth. After all that I made friends with a beer horse.
You might notice in that first photo I’m decked out in lederhosen. That is another thing my German guide did for me - he took me into a very expensive shop (that outfit was close to $2,000 USD) and they did a fitting for me just so he could snap a few pics for me.
I’d wear them every day and I’m sad I don’t own them. So freakin comfortable.
…I have no fashion sense.
