Munich (the capital of Bavaria) is the city with the largest Oktoberfest in the world. I live in Kitchener, Ontario (once called Berlin) which hosts the biggest Oktoberfest outside of Germany.
My first time in Munich this summer made a memorable impression on me: the amazing state of the art BMW museum (which I will take you inside on a future post) and the fascinating architectural attractions of both historic and modern buildings.
Street musicians are amazing! Click on photo and watch them play!
Marienplatz is the city centre since 1158. The pedestrian zone is buzzing with people and numerous restaurants and shops. Check out Jean’s post about the unique restaurant we went to in Munich (specially for cat lovers–you’ve never seen anything like it!! ❤ )
Oktoberfest in Canada starts on Thanksgiving weekend–harvest time, a time to thank God for the abundance of healthy food: every type of vegetable and all sorts of fruit! Here’s the turkey I’m going to serve this year. (I didn’t make this one in the photo, but here’s the one I made last year.)
These photos of my Dirndl were taken today (not in Munich). I bought this outfit in Dinklesbühl in 1982.
Love my ❤ pendant and earrings. The skirt has little red hearts embroidered on the hemline. I like the lacy knit of these knee socks and have them in different colours.
Happy Thanksgiving!! We are blessed!!
