I am still pinching myself that I am actually here. After months of planning, saving, working and moving I finally stepped off the plane yesterday into this world I have been dreaming of. And yes, the 20+ hours of plane travel was awful!
Marienplatz, the main town square. Regardless of a bit of construction work going on it was amazing. The beer I am enjoying below was bought in a courtyard inside this building, and the photos of the city at the end of this post were taken from atop the bell tower (only 1 euro for students to take the elevator to the top. Well worth it!). At five o’clock I obliviously also stumbled across a crowd of people watching the moving figurines in the tower that perform as the clock strikes the hour (in the green area of the bell tower).
I tried to convince myself that I should refrain from taking a photo of everything awesome I saw (so, basically everything) but I couldn’t stop myself from getting a bit snap happy. Especially with these views from the top of the bell tower. I have another 20+ photos from my three hours of wondering the city on my computer! And I deleted half of the ones I took. Let’s see how many I end up with after another full day of exploring today.
It’s so flat! I could see some mountains off in the far distance.Awkward selfie time (ft. black eyes due to god knows how many hours of being awake)! I tried my best to be discrete, but then I ended up just taking one anyway. Whatever, I’m a tourist!
