Looking Back: Should You Take Your Toddler To Oktoberfest?

With Oktoberfest 2017 underway (and ending on October 3), I felt it would be a great idea to re-share a post which I wrote about the festival a few years back.

The majority of people might think of Oktoberfest as a beer-filled festival full of drunks and they would be correct to an extent. However, the festival is also family-friendly with yummy food, fun rides and appealing music playing in the tents.

Take a look at my post, “Should You Take Your Toddler to Oktoberfest“.  Feel free to share your thoughts. Would you bring your toddler to Oktoberfest or would you rather experience an adult only version? Continue reading Looking Back: Should You Take Your Toddler To Oktoberfest?

I recently came across news that an American tourist gave the Nazi salute in Dresden, Germany. Continue reading American Tourist Gives Nazi Salute in Germany, Gets Beat Up

A Chinese tourist on a tour of Europe was mistaken for a refugee while in Germany and got “locked into a migrant camp for two weeks  after he attempted to report a crime“, according to Breitbart. Continue reading Chinese Tourist Mistaken for Refugee, Spends 2 Weeks in German Migrant Camp

Hard Rock Hotel has locations all over the world although I wouldn’t call it a big hotel brand. (They currently have 22 hotels.) However, they seem to be expanding quite a bit with a bunch of new locations in the works.

Win A Trip to Munich

Munich Germany

I just found out about a contest (thanks Gothamist) being ran by ShermansTravel where you can win a trip for 2 to Munich Germany.

If you like beer you’ll love Munich, although drinking isn’t the only fun thing the city has to offer. Check out the local parks, town squares, museums, take a day-trip and more…

During my second visit to the city, I went to attend Oktoberfest. While we didn’t have time to explore much of the city that time around, the festival is more than worthy reason to visit! Continue reading Win A Trip to Munich
