Of summer travel plans…

I went to bed late on Saturday, so I decided that yesterday would be a beautiful, lazy Sunday. I turned off my alarm, slept in, forewent the gym in favour of sitting around in the living room with my family. By the time I rolled out of bed, at 8:30, my parents had found a great deal online and booked our annual family vacay tickets! I was hell-bent on traveling on my own this year, but an all-inclusive vacay for zero dollars won over actually paying for things. The added bonus is that I get to plan out our itinerary for our first & last stop: München, Germany! We’ll also be visiting the Dolomites, Makarska, Zagreb & Sarajevo, but my responsibility lies only in Deutschland-related planning.

Current list of places to visit:
1. BMW Museum

I think this stop is pretty self-explanatory to anybody that knows me at all. I’ve been borderline obsessed with BMWs cars ever since I can remember, so visiting this museum is probably going to give me a heart attack of pleasure.

2. Hirschgarten

What is this magical place? ANSWER: It is a beer garden. In a forest. With deer. It seats 8000. Germany brings me so much joy, and I have yet to properly visit it (hanging out in its airports doesn’t really count). Beer. Forest. Deer. Seriously!

3. Peterskirche

The architecture in Bavaria is pretty extraordinary, so I felt that visiting the oldest church in München would be a great idea. Plus, it is gorgeous!

4. Marienplatz

Another beautiful European square that I can’t wait to visit and explore. Again, it’s architecturally epic, and despite the fact that a lot of this area was damaged during WWII, it’s been rebuilt and it still looks like it did back in the 1800s. Drool.

I fully intend on adding another place or two to this list (Viktualienmarkt, anyone?), but the fact is that we won’t be staying that long, and we can only fit so much. Ah well. Plus, I am to eat everything in my vicinity; Würste, Leberkässemmeln, Bretzeln, etc., etc.

I CANNOT WAIT TIL JULY.

As far as the rest of my Sunday was concerned, I had the most ab-intensive Bellywood class I’ve had yet, which was epically fun, and after that, I ran straight to coaching. I’ve been replacing one of the other coaches for a few weeks now, so the girls know and like me, which makes everything a ton easier. Plus, extra money! Whoo! My lazy Sunday turned into something a touch less lazy, but it was still badawesome.

Bis später!

P.S. I am so not in the mood to spend 7.5 hours on campus today…kill me.

    Ah, beer gardens! Make sure you order your drink in an amaz (or in a maz, I’m not sure if the ‘a’ is part of the word or an article…). Nothing will warm your mother’s heard more than you ordering a litre of beer in German.
