We are going to Hungary for the long weekend. In our sights we have Budapest, what we understand to be an amazing city full of splendid cafes, mineral baths and spicy paprika and goulash among other more cultural things.
We are setting off for Munich – once again. A bit of paper work to deal with at our favourite place the Polish Embassy.
To Munich and back, door to door – that being our house to Zenith Cultural Hall and back. One quick stop for gas a 3 sets of constructions. 326km in total in just under 2 hours. Driving at night on autobahn is just one of those things that one has to try. The only side […]
Kicking it up
Arctic Monkeys are on stage – it’s going to be a great night.
The Strypes are on the stage and they are loud. We had a pretty good run here. Just a touch over 1 hour including a stop for some gas!
November is going to be a musical month. We are setting off to Munich for the second concert this month. This venue is a bit larger holding up to 6000 people. Should be fun.
When London Grammar came out onto the stage our first reaction was, but they are just kids! They are so young. Indeed they are young, but they sound not only mature and unique but also simply amazing. Small venue packed to capacity, no one getting drunk, no one smoking and no one pushing or shoving […]
We Are Here
I think this club has a capacity for maybe 100 or 150 people. It’s going to be great.
We are setting off to Munich tonight to see and hear London Grammar preform at the Atomic Cafe. It is a relatively new band which Anna has discovered somewhere online and we like it very much. It’s not going to be a long concert as they only have one CD but it should be a […]
The Theatine Church of St. Cajetan
The Theatine Church of St. Cajetan in Munich is one of those places that looks very unassuming from the outside and makes your jaw drop when you walk inside. If you want to see boundless opulence on a small scale in white marble done in Italian high-Baroque – this place is a good start. When a king, gets […]
Double 00 Status
After months of relentless pursuit we have triumphed over the Polish beaurocracy and have obtained our double OO status. Between the two of us there are 6 passports – we are now now accepting missions wink wink..
When in Munich
We are in Munich picking up the passports. Unlike, our previous trips to the Embassy this one took about 10 min, required no appointment and no payments – just a couple of signatures and finger swipes. It was the most pleasant of all visits we had here. Before we could pick up our passports however, […]
We are setting off to Munich once again. This time to pick up both passports – finally.
The Rest of Munich
We finished the tour of Munich in the old town. After some sight seeing and a nice dinner we left for Nuremberg at 9:30 on the train.
This is the best way to see the Olympic Park and the city with the least amount of walking.
Next to the Olympic Park is the BWM world and the BMW Museum. The nicest car here was the M6 Grand Coupe.
Munich Olympic Park
Olympic Park sights.
Munich on the Train
We are off to Munich for a day trip on the train. The Bavaria pass which is €26 allows our family to travel anywhere in Bavaria on the public transportation for a whole day. Deal of a century.
My passport application has been accepted – FINALLY
Back to Munich
We are back at the Polish Embassy in Munich trying to push some papers through. IT hasn’t all gone according to plan, in fact, nothing so far has, but at least we did managed to push some papers through and for the rest there is hope on the horizon. We know for a fact, we […]
Munich – Old Town Tour
While the Polish Consulate in Munich was a huge disappointment, or preformed as expected, the rest of the city was a treat. We were expecting to spent good 2 to 3 hours waiting to see the Consul but with this option out of the way there was simply more time to explore the city. […]
We set off to Munich to get our passports done. It took exactly 2 min to be sent off with a litany of excuses. Wrong documents, wrong translations, wrong day, wrong time, wrong reason and with the wrong rhyme! With a whole day ahead of us we decided to explore this wonderful city and it’s […]
