Travel is not always work. Last year a few of us attended a workshop and presentation in Zug, Switzerland. A few days later we had to be in Johannesburg. In between, we went to Munich for Oktoberfest which just happened to open then.
Munich is a wonderful city in October. Apart from the festivities, we saw many of the historic areas and enjoyed the local cuisine with eisbein and kartoffelknödel. Sehr gut!
At Oktoberfest, we watched the inaugural parade and joined tens of thousands of people for the main attraction: beer drinking. It’s amazing how quickly you make friends with people from all over the world at this event.
