About Me

My photo
After getting my first passport in 2006 and traveling to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania my life changed. I began the process of getting rid of all my possessions and traveling the world. Traveling to over 125 countries and all 7 continents, hostels have been my home. This "new life" has taught me what is important and it was NOT accumulating money or possessions. Traveling is the best education. I hope my blog will encourage others to travel. My World Tattoo was a way for me to express my PASSION FOR TRAVEL.

GERMANY, Frankfurt

September 30, 2016

Only a few days here before visiting Rothenburg. Then on to Austria.

GERMANY, Munich, Oktoberfest

Oktoberfest in Munich was quite an experience. The festival always starts in September which is kind of strange being that it is Oktoberfest. The Bavarian breweries brew beer fro 4 months just to have enough beer for the 12 day festival.


I took the train from Venice and headed to Munich for Oktoberfest for several days. I stayed at the Jaegermeister Hostel which was only a few blocks from the Olde Town Center and the Fairgrounds where the beer gardens were located. The . Glockenspiel Clock is one of the highlights of Olde Town . After World War II , most of Munich was destroyed. The people were give the choice of rebuilding as it was or rebuilding in newer. They chose as it was before.
