Munich Trip Report

Neuschwanstein CastleI just got back from a long weekend in Munich and Salzburg. Amazingly, it was the first time I’ve left the Netherlands since arriving here in January. What I really wanted to see down there was the Neuschwanstein Castle in Füssen, which is featured on the cover of Blur’s Country House single. (I know that’s a weird reason to want to go to a castle, but I’m not alone.)
I traveled in style on the German ICE trains. They’re among the fastest trains in the world. They actually display the current speed in each cabin so that the passengers can occasionally look up and think, “yeah – we’re going really fast”.
I drank lots of beer and ate lots of sausage and other weird meat products, and now it’s time to get back to some work.

  1. Ah, Deutschland! Aren’t those Germans crazy kooks? But nothing beats a vegan bratwurst with a liter of helles…

  2. Hopefully you made it to the Hofbrauhaus in Munich. Besides its fascinating history and fun Bavarian music, thirsty patrons drink 10,000 liters of fresh beer there daily.
