Where I stayed

Sitting in a bar at the airport with one or two last Octoberfest beers waiting to go home. Got a quick check in as Alice and the kids are Silver members but even though I'm only Blue they still let me tag along. Kids thought it was great, making fun of me. They thought they were  heading for the Business Class Lounge and were going to let me stay out in the cold. Tough luck they couldn't get in. Alice tried for another upgrade but again was sadly rejected. I had to leave with the kids when she started saying things like "I can't do it again" and "only me, they don't know what they are missing, I do, please." All to no avail though. Looking forward to boarding, should be fun.
Anyway woke up to a sunny day for a change and headed off to  the Schloss Nymphenburg Palace. Biggest yet. See photo. Place was built in early 1600's and just kept adding to till 1918. As you walk around you can feel that these blokes were not short of a quid and braincells. Very lavish lifestyle and all a bit crazy. Left and headed out to a local pub for a beer and another pork knuckle. This all ends next week when it's back to work and school, or the beach in my case.
Tram home for a quiet afternoon. Cleaned up the unit and packed.
Train to the airport and here we are. Think all of us are looking forward to getting home. Has been a long time but fun. Kids and us have seen a lot of different things. Even Alice has seen a lot of Munich she has never seen.
If I don't post again, it's been a pleasure & hope it hasn't been boring. When I think about it there was only one photo of food. on the whole trip. Some people post pictures of their meals every day. Why? Who cares? So thank me for that.
Farewell till Alice takes us away again. She did a great job organising it.
