Should You Take Your Toddler to Oktoberfest

After writing a post based on a Fodor’s article about 10 Things Not to DO at Disney World, I felt it was fitting to finally write a little about our experience at an amazing festival (which has some rides).

Most people probably consider Munich’s Oktoberfest an event just for adults but they’d actually be wrong. Continue reading Should You Take Your Toddler to Oktoberfest

Kim, Lucas and I had an amazing experience in Germany. (Check back for posts soon.) The main purpose for our visit was to finally get to experience Oktoberfest.

Last year we couldn’t get to Munich for the big event so we attended an event inspired by it- Shacktoberfest! Check out my post about it here.

Shacktoberfest is back at Shake Shack from today- October 4 through October 13 with a special Oktoberfest menu. It will be the 8th annual event.

Lufthansa’s Awesome Oktoberfest Inspired Amenity Kit

What We Did During An 8 Hour Layover In Frankfurt

We’re heading to Germany in a couple of hours. Here is a post about one way we got prepared for Oktoberfest while still on another trip.

On the way home from the Balkans we had an eight-hour layover in Frankfurt. We planned to head into the city to kill a little time since neither of us had every been to the city before.

Kim and I did some reading about Frankfurt and neither of us came up with much to do. We figured at worst we could just wander around the city center and grab something to eat before heading back to the airport for our flight home.

Soon after, we came up with a plan- the perfect way to make good use of our time rather than just wander around.
