Weekend after Spain we were off to the world famous Oktoberfest in Munich where we caught up with Katherine's brother. First stop was our B&B which was in this guys flat a couple of stops from central station. First stop was the rat house and to grab a Brezel and some sausages. I think I made a record that day of 5 sausages in 5 hours. We then west to Oktoberfest which is like the ekka for big kids it was awesome. We had a few steins of beer and some great Schnapps great food and a great time. We went to a few beer gardens and to the Carousal bar which has been at the Oktoberfest for over 100 yrs. We met some great Germans and had a few drinks which them. All the locals wear the traditional dress and it is great we actually felt a little bit out of it not wearing the Lederhosen and the other kit. Anyway the next day we walked around town and went to the largest technology museum and saw some amazing things from mini brick factories to hand crafted glass ornaments being made to some of the aircraft used in World War 2 including a V1 and V2 rocket. It was really really good. That night we went on a Beer Challenge and met some great people from all round the world including Canadian, Americans and some lovely Mexican girls. We had a great night and I'm sure we will stay friends with the people for a long time. It was a really really fun night with Beer, Jagermeister and karaoke. The next day we went out to Fussen and visited the Hohenschwangau castle and the fairytale castle Neuschwanstein. The guy that built Neuschwanstein was an absolute nutter King Ludwig II. The castle was never finished and is absolutely amazing. I don't want to spoil it for anyone that is going but if you ever go to Europe or Germany you HAVE to go it is amazing!!!!!

Anyway tomorrow morning we are off to Amsterdam so stay tuned...I know I keep saying this but I'm going to keep this updated more than I currently have been over the past few post. I hope you are all well and look forward to hearing from you all soon.
