Our flight was an early flight in the morning, we had to be
on the airport around 7:00am, so my alarm clock woke me up
at 6:00am - at the first day of my holidays! As always when
I take such an early flight, I promised myself not do the
same again in the future. The funny thing is that whenever
I organise my holidays and flights I forget this promise cause
I'm so excited about all that.
wait to start my holidays as soon as possible, so again I
take an early flight, and the old story starts again... but
anyway - my friend and I started our trip to Munich on a Saturday
morning having breakfast in the airport after checkeng in
our luggage. Then we went to our boarding gate to get on our
I love the moment when you're on the plane, ready to take
off, sitting on your seat and starting the real countdown
of your trip. It
is in this very instant that I really realize that I'm going
wanted to visit Germany as I've seen a lot of pictures from
there and I love German food and language - I even have been
learning German for three months. My friend hasn't been in
Germany before either, and so Munich was a city unknown to
both of us.
rather preferred a not too big place but with beautiful surroundings
to visit: lovely gardens, ancient buildings, great museums
and nice streets to walk here and there.

As the flight from Madrid to Munich only takes one hour and
a half, I made the most of the time with reading in my guide
about Munich and taking some pics from my window: there was
an unbelievable sunrise taking place on the azure morning
sky. And then, before we realized it, our plane landed finally
up our luggage we looked for a place in the airport to buy
a subway ticket and get some help: we needed to find the best
way to get to our hotel. Subway or bus?... and we found the
answer: train from the airport and then a change to the subway
to our hotel. It sounded easy.
And to our
surprise, it really was easy - just one hour later we arrived
at our hotel, which was well situated, quite near the city
center and the subway station.
We left our bags in our room and as it was early we decided
to take the subway to go to the tourist information office
in the city centre to ask for information about Munich, and
also recommendations for daytrips to the lakes and villages
in Bavaria, like the Forggensee at Füssen.
it was not so easy to not get through the subway: we tried
to find the right way to go but finally we got lost but thanks
to the help of some people we finally arrived at the Marienplatz.
