A Day In Munich

by 9.10.10

Today (the 8th of October), we had an off day in Munich. Yesterday we had a lovely show in the 'Backstage'.

The weather forecast said that today would be a sunny day, but when we woke up, it was more like 'Sleepy Hollow'. We decided to take an umbrella, just to be sure.

Taking the S-bahn to 'Marienplatz', we were surprised to see that the sky was opening slowly. Let the sun shine, let the sun shine in....
Doesn't this look nice? An off day with sun is so much nicer.

I was really looking forward to our off day in Munich. I've been there already a couple of times, but didn't see as much as I'd wanted to. I put on a pair of very comfy boots, so that I could walk without cursing at my shoes.

After sniffling around at the Marienplatz, we went to the 'Residenz', where we heard a lovely voice. She's from the Ukraine and was singing songs from her father land. Really lovely. Her voice gave me goosebumps.

After wandering through Munich, we needed a refreshment:

We bought some 'sugar burnt' Macadamia nuts (don't know the official English name for it) before we got a seat at this lovely cafe. Macadamia nuts are my favorites! Too bad that they are heavily over priced.

We only got a drink, Oliver decided to go for an Ice Cafe. I got a really nice drink, which I only had once before in my life; 'Sanfter Engel' (Soft Angel). It's orange juice, with a shot of some kind of alcohol and vanilla ice cream. It is divine!

Check out 'little red sitting hood' in the middle of the square :)

Time for dinner at the 'Ratskeller'.

We were originally searching for a restaurant where I already went to some years ago, but were so tired that we decided to go eat here. We were happy that we did, because this place is amazing! We both ordered 'Käsespätzle', of which I only ate 1/3... It is very tasty, but also very heavy.

I hope you like my blog post. If you ever get the chance to visit Munich, please do so. It is beautiful!

    This is just my nerdy photog self speaking here - but the composition setup of the Ukrainian lady and "Little Red Riding Hood" are REALLY good.
    You've got an incredible vision for photography :)

  7. Simone, seeing the second picture, I remembered of some photographs of Russia that you, who's fond of photography, may like. The most amazing is to see the dates when the pictures were taken: http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/2010/08/russia_in_color_a_century_ago.html

  8. Hi Simone!
    I'll defenitely visit Munich someday xD. I have a personal compromise, if i go to an Epica Concert in México (probably Guadalajara City because it's the nearest city of mine), i will search a bag of Macadamias to give it to you, is a promise!!

    Beautiful Pictures, i love the way you describe the places, i study Tourism so i love to know about other places.

    Regards from México, Take care =).

    Could you tell me please which hair product do you use for your hair color? :)

    Many thanks from Hungary,

  27. Hey Simone!

    I've been to Munich something like 6 years ago for the Christmas market, it was cold and so beautiful. Reading your post reminded me of that very nice time I had.
    Do you have a day off in Paris as well? I hope the weather will still be as beautiful as it is now when you are here. The Elysee-Montmartre will be warm and welcoming as always! It will be the third time I see Epica there, it's kinda like seeing old friends of mine. ;)

  28. Hi Simone!! :)

    I'm from Brazil and I'm really waiting for the next Epica show here! :D
    I loved all your pics though! You're amazing. ;)
