As always Mike and I went on a wonderful ausflug on the weekend (awhile ago). I basically instagram stalked some girl and sent Mike a screenshot saying “I want to go here”. Without knowing where it was (It was not that far away) Mike decided Partnachklamm would be a wonderful location to spend the day.
Granted if this was a Tuesday afternoon, I do not think there would be anybody here (and you could enjoy it a little more) BUT on a Sunday afternoon with good weather…It’s a nightmare.
I have been traveling with the “trains” for quite some time here in Munich. You would think I know all the tricks… BUT, I still seem to surprise myself. Well I don’t surprise myself, the Deutsche Bahn seems to surprise me.
Basically, if you are coming to Munich/Bayern as a group (up to 5 people) anytime soon, and looking for a cheap way to travel I would recommend getting the Bayern-Ticket. Not only is it cheap, you can order it months beforehand and you can also get it at any DB ticket automat.
The ticket lets you travel throughout Bayern for the day for DIRT CHEAP. I mean….REALLY cheap. I bought the ticket once with 4 other girls and we took a trip to Salzburg (near Bavaria) and it cost 50 euros there and back for all 5 of us. Granted we could not take the ICE and had to take the regional trains BUT STILL 50euros for a round trip to another country is a great deal. There are so many places that are accessible with this ticket and so many places that you could visit. If you are thinking about traveling to Bavaria and wanting to visit many destinations/make multiple stops the Bayern ticket is one of your best bets. PLUS the views are amazing.
This table just shows the amount of people traveling (anzahl Reisende) and the difference between price and class (2. Klasse = Economy, 1. Klasse = First class, Nacht = evening train rides).
I hope you will have so much fun and wish you so much luck on your journey through Bavaria!!
Ok so most of y’all know that I live in Munich, Germany. BEST PLACE IN THE WORLD. A lot of people that watch my videos, read my blog or follow me in general are interested in A) German culture through an American’s eyes or B) Looking for tips before coming to Germany. This wonderful blog post is for you people that are coming to Munich in the near future.
Munich is full of fancy cars, beautiful people and most importantly BEER. Not only is there a lot of it but the beer actually taste good. I 100% recommend a trip to a biergarten if you are in Munich from the months of April/May-September :D. The buzzing atmosphere will make you feel so welcome.
I have found a map of I guess the “best” biergartens in Munich that are accessible by public transportation. There are many that are not accessible by public transportation BUT I can’t give y’all all the secrets, now can I?
I have finally gotten my computer back and a new phone. Thank the heavens! Mike and I decided it would be fun to make an ausflug to one of our favorite locations… Kochl Am See/Walchensee. I promise you guys….If you are in Bayern and near this location you would probably find Mike and I there. We spend way too much time in the same spots…Last week however, we decided to eat somewhere a little different… NO MORE TEGERNSEE BRAUSTUBERL 😀 We decided to eat at Karwendelblick.
It wasn’t the “best” restaurant we have ever been to but the location was nice and the food was tasty PLUS it was relatively cheap 😀
I do feel bad that I force Mike to wait to eat until I take photos of our food 😉 Hopefully you don’t have a significant other like me.
Last weekend Mike and I decided to wake up early . We actually woke up at 12 and decided it would be a perfect time to go hiking! We got ourselves ready, packed our bags, ate something and even stopped by the bank to get cash. Let’s just say we did not make it to our “ziel” until 2:30pm -_- I have only been hiking a few times and I am not experienced at all in the skill of hiking (I’m from Florida..we don’t have mountains).
Mike told me it would be an easy 1 hour 45 minute hike up…..to Martinskopf
After googling about the mountain I found out that…. Martinskopf is a 1675hm climb -_- with an estimated 2h45m time. As Mike and I were beginning our climb a cute old lady said “oh, a night tour…that’s cute” and I thought to myself “what the hell is this lady talking about?”. I would soon find out at 5pm when we got to the hutte at the top with my schnitzel that there was no way (if we wanted to make it to the kreuz) that we would be back in daylight.
As yall could guess…It took forever and a decade to finish our food get to the top of Martinskopf and make it back down BUT when 9pm hit …our feet were finally on flat surface.
Moral of the story…1st) Don’t trust your boyfriend when he says it’ll be a 2 hour hike! 2nd) Don’t go hiking later than 2pm. 3rd) DON’T WEAR Nike Air Max.
and last but not least be very thankful that your boyfriend dragged you out of the house to experience such beauty ❤
I know…I am neglecting my blog. You don’t have to tell me (I know I keep saying I will change and get better BUT I think we both know that’s a lie). This post is basically a thank you post because I don’t like writing long things on Facebook, Instagram or Youtube. I mean what’s the point of having a blog if you don’t type your heart out?….Right?
A few days ago I reached 20,000 subscribers on Youtube…I know you are probably thinking “What the hell is wrong with this girl?” “Why is she making such a big deal over 20,000 subscibers”?
I am so proud of my Youtube channel and that is why I constantly have to post about it. My Youtube channel is me in raw form. My youtube channel is so much wrapped into one package, it is a big ole bank of memories. Every video, every comment and every INFO BOX has some fun story behind it. For some people Youtube is just an outlet BUT for me it is so much more, it is my past that I look back at and see how much I have grown ❤
I don’t have any idea about where my Youtube is headed or what I have in store for yall BUT hopefully it’ll be fun and interesting AND hopefully you guys stick around. I would not have been able to make it through my time abroad without Youtube and the people behind the screen asking me to push through 😀 So thank you to everyone that is here and welcome to the new folks! I really love yall and am soooooo forever grateful!
If you stumbled upon this page, welcome. I will start off with the basics. My name is Hayley and I am a 24 year old American living in Munich, Germany. I left the wonderful sunshine state (Florida) when I was 22 to become an Au-pair. My time as an Au-Pair was all but fun. I talk about Germany, The USA and everything in between that sparks my interest. I am still deciding what I would like to do with myself here in Germany and hopefully I will figure it out some time soon BUT until then I will just bring yall along with me.
