Munich.

After a summer in California it was time for me to head back to Europe for my second year abroad. Since my school schedule was quite rigorous and took up most of my free time I wasn’t able to travel as much as other study abroad students. However, I knew I had to make it to the world’s largest fun fair in Munich, Germany. Oktoberfest is held every fall from late September to early October with around six million people visiting the event every year! Oktoberfest provides a plethora of attractions such as amusement rides, side stalls, food vendors, and of course beer tents!

I went with my friend Sara who had already been to Oktoberfest twice! We decided to stay at the campgrounds even though neither of us are quite the “outdoorsy” type.

The second day we decided not to go back to Oktoberfest as we were drained from all the drinking we did the day before. We headed to the city center of Munich to do some exploring and try some Bavarian specialties.

Overall my experience at Oktoberfest was super entertaining and exciting. However, I probably wouldn’t go back any time soon just because I can’t keep up with all the beer drinking! Nonetheless, I’m looking forward to returning back to Germany one day to explore other cities and to seek out new foods!
