3 days in münchen

some "postcards" of Munich from a weekend ago:

couldn't help noticing that all the windows in the buildings of Munich are properly double glazed and in impeccable order, not a rotten sash in sight unlike here in Dublin. All the facades look like they've been just painted.

The Christmas fair preparations were in full in swing in the Marienplatz area with some stalls already set up and totally respectable looking people queueing to the mulled wine kiosk. We joined that queue needless to say and the mulled wine was good.
our table in the popular Augustiner am Dom in Frauenplatz 8 (next to Marienplatz), traditional food and beer and atmosphere

This 'postcard'above is about being lazy on a holiday and of course food. We certainly had to try (twice) the German/Bavarian speciality, the saurkraut and sausages, the pretzels with bits of salt, unfiltered beer. (The second time we were wiser and ordered one portion of sausages to share between the three of us.)

Time went by too quickly, and we made some plans for our next getaway. It was unequivocally resolved, firstly, that we enjoy each other's company immensly, secondly that next time we should eat less, and instead may be engage in an activity that we could all enjoy. Basket-weaving (my idea) was boo'ed so instead a wine tasting course was agreed on as an option.

your resolutions for the next voyage sound funny!
We expect also to do more cultural visits instead of eating and shopping.
Your photos as usual are great

easily said than done. we'll see what happens next time! Now that I think about it wine tasting doesn't sound like a very.. active.. activity :)
