Update

I’ve had to go back and change the days on the posts, because I was a day ahead. Originally I put days 6 and 7 together, which I shouldn’t have done, because I then went on to do a separate post for each day. Sorry for any confusion! Advertisements

Day 17 – Munich, Oktoberfest and goodbyes

This was our last morning with our friends. One was heading home, two onto Bruges and one onto Berlin who will eventually meet back up with us in Paris. Our bus left the latest, after 5pm, so we put our suitcases in lockers at the Munich ZOB bus station (€5 for 24 hours) and went…

Day 16 – Munich – Museums & Oktoberfest

Day 12 – Venice

The best advice for Venice: Explore. Get lost. There are so many alleys with shops and cafes, if you just go for it, you will find hidden treasures everywhere. Trust me, it’s worth it. We started the day with out usual espresso and pastry breakfast at a nearby cafe. We were paying around €1,10 for…
