Thursday did not involve anything special, as the weather was terrible and I wanted to get some work done. I did walk over to Partenkirchen to see what that half of the town had to offer, and it was much in the same as Garmisch. Some nice little shops. With the cold weather and rain, more and more snow had accumulated on the mountains, making it a very pretty time to be there.
I checked out of the B&B fairly early on Friday and hopped on a train to Munich. I’m staying at a hostel a few stops from the main area, so it was a bit of a walk. Once I was checked in, I used the rest of the day to work, only straying a little ways from where I was and making plans for what to do in Munich.
At night, I was working in the hotel bar area when I met Taylor, who happened to be an SU student traveling abroad, and also happened to be my sister’s friend. She and Ali were traveling on fall break, and I decided to tag along on their trip to Neuschwanstein Castle the next day, since it was on my list anyways.
So I did that. Lots more train riding, and actually back fairly close to where I came from in Garmisch.
Took the scenic hikes around here. At the bottom of the hill a couple had gotten married and were taking pictures by this lake. Seemed like a nice place for a reception.
We ate at a nice Bavarian place in Füssen. I had their King Ludwig beer and their version of Mac-and-Cheese.
After a long train/bus ride back I met up with Remy who came to Munich for a night, and we hung out for a while. Taylor & Ali joined us again, and the four of us went to a Thai place and then out to a couple hip bars all the kids thought were cool.
On Sunday, I checked out of the hostel about 20 minutes late (whoops) and made my way to my second hostel, in a little bit more central area (during the week there’s a lot more availability). Dumped my stuff and just traveled around the city for a while.
I hit up a number of the main attractions, but I think I’ll do the official walking tour tomorrow so I can learn things.
Took a train to another part of the city later at night because I had a train pass and I felt like getting Sushi. I snagged some Avocado rolls, which were OK. Bed early so I can get some work done and plan what I’m doing for the next week.
