The Wonderful Women of Shakespeare's !

If you don't know Shakespeare's, you don't know squat.

Paging Barbus......

You have been quiet. Spending too much time on the boat already to think about your Oktoberfest Brethren?

Have you made hotel reservations yet?

Never too early.....

To think about day trips or daily itineraries. While we never overly plan our visits, we do like to have some idea of what we are doing. Since this will be Jeep CJ's first visit, I want to make sure we have all the highlights covered.

We arrive at about 09:30 on Friday, so that should put us at Hotel Alfa by 11:00 at the latest. Check-in, maybe a quick "wake up shower", and time to experience Munich. Probably need some lunch, so maybe a quick trip around the corner for a Donner sandwich; extra spicy of course :-)

Probably then take the traditional walk through Karlzplatz and Marienplatz on the way to the Hofbrauhaus. Depending on the weather, a few stops along the way for a bier would not be out of order. Maybe even hit the Viktualienmarkt. Then of course it's the traditional Friday afternoon escapades at the Hofbrauhaus. The evening finishes with either dinner at Augustiner Keller, and certainly our first visit to Shakespeare's.

Sounds like a lot of planing for someone who doesn't want to overly plan. I'll cover other daily options later, but suffice to say, Saturday P.M. is our tent reservations, and Sunday will be our religious sojourn to Kloster Andechs.

Remember, Mr. Spock was almost right when he said "live long and prosper". He meant to say, "leben lang und trinkien Bier!"
