Euro Trip - Part 1 | Munich

Here I am back in Kuwait, and whoa it's boiling out here! But it is so damn good to be back, well, except for the weather, landscapes, and people's attitude of course but you get the point... Home sweet home.

The trip was a total success. I have never enjoyed a vacation as much as I did in this one. We arrived in Munich on the 5th of July. The weather was somewhat like Kuwaiti winter with astonishing cloudy skies and scattered rain, it didn't even go over 25c!

For six days Marienplatz was our everyday spot but we took some time to checkout the top 10 things in Munich. We have visited Allianz-Arena (the world's most amazing stadium), Nymphenburg palace, Munich FrauenKirche (the footstep of the devil!), BMW Museum, Englischer Garten, Olympiapark, attended an open air symphony, and we have made friends with an american opera singer!

We had a crazy/funny part in each location. Like in Allianz-Arena we have missed the english tour twice (two days) then we finally had the chance to go in on the third day. And in Frauenkirche, the foot of the devil is Exactly my foot size! (yes, I've been told I'm the Devil but couldn't make sure till now). As for the open air symphony, that was a whole separate adventure... Guests in suits and we're wearing shorts! People around us actually thought we are a gay couple! Damn that was embarrassing! lmao xD

I don't want to give specific details because it would take thousands of lines so I'll just leave you here with some random pics of the first part, pics I took in Germany...

intlxpatr:
Thanks. Yes I'll be teaching in the same school but maybe I will switch some grades. I used to have 6th and 8th. Would be nice to keep teaching my kids next year when they're in 7th/9th grade.


ms loala:
Thanks.
Iran?! lol. Been there once. I guess that's enough. ;p

The story behind that foot step... they say the devil went into that church and stood right where that footprint is, and from that position he couldn't see any of the church windows so he laughed about it saying a church without windows (light) will be doomed. Once he took one more step windows started to show up on both sides and screamed his way out of the church. Ever since that incident they say the wind have never stopped circulating around that church. It's just a story though the only fact is when you stand over that footprint you really can't see any window.



swair:
