Its should have been less than an hours drive to Munich, but the traffic was very heavy. The closer to Munich we get the slower it gets. Mostly just to do with some roadworks but we do pass a 4-5 car nose to tail accident at one point.
We are not in Munich, to visit Munich. We’ve come to do Oktoberfest. We will spend a couple of days in Munich next year or the year after. From what little we know, Oktoberfest is not a good time to do the sights, there are just too many visitors.
Easily enough we drive into the Munich Exhibition Centre carpark. It has been turned into a giant stellplatz with all the usual facilities. Mind you Pam almost has a stroke when they ask for €35. It’s all organized with the usual German efficiency, once you understand the rules everything’s fine.
Not sure what the high point of the day was but it would be hard to beat getting off the train and finding a tree to enjoy a 10 minute pee in relative privacy. Anyway the bloody Italians were noisy all night adding to the hangover in the morning. We had such a great afternoon at Oktoberfest there seemed little point testing our luck so we pack up and head south east for our next adventure.
