Oktoberfest

9/20/2011

{One beer, two beer, three beer, floor. Although you're technically not allowed to bring steins home, I smuggled one home for Ian}


{HofbrÀuhaus - we arrived at 7am to get in line. They don't mess around!}





{They play the song "Hey Baby" on repeat and after half a stein of beer everyone - myself included - sings along}


{One of the funniest moments of my life: Jacqueline and I realizing that we fell asleep with our  key in the hotel door at noon after being at Oktoberfest for just a few hours. Oh, college}
Did you know that Oktoberfest actually takes place in September? During my semester studying abroad in England, a group of us met up in Munich for Oktoberfest. The weekend flew by in a beer-induced blur, but I hope to return to Munich again someday.
