The group of us got into town at about 7 am. The train ride down was great because we had reserved beds so we could at least attempt to sleep on the way down. The first thing I did at the train station was grab some Starbucks! First time in all of

On Saturday morning we got dressed and showered and went off to go to Oktoberfest at about 830ish. I thought this was kind of early but when we got to the grounds all of the tents were full so we grabbed a table by entrance. It was crazy to be drinking beer so early in the morning but we met a lot of cool Germans and Italians and we did a lot of chanting. After a few hours of hanging out at the table I decided to head home because I felt like I was coming down with a cold. I was at the hotel around 2pm and them the rest of my friends came around 330pm and told me that they had lost our friend

On Sunday we got up and headed back to Oktoberfest around 9 am and got a spot at a table in a tent. The environment was crazy and just like you see in movies. There was lots of chanting, singing, and chugging steins of beer! We grabbed some Fish and Chips and decided to head back to the hotel room for a bit because our friend Jaclyn was wasted because she had been hanging out with some Australians who bought her stein’s and chicken which was funny to see. At the hotel room I stayed for about an hour then packed my stuff because I was leaving at 715pm and the rest of them were just staying another night. I went to see some of the cool buildings that I had seen in a brochure. It was nice walking around town by myself and just listening to my iPod and taking pictures of all the cool architecture, and just people watching for a few hours. Grabbed a cup of coffee and went and sat on the steps of a monument and took in some time for relaxation and time to think about how lucky I am to be here. I went to the train station and met some people from

On Monday we got up early to catch a tour that started at 11 am. On this tour we walked around different parts of town and learned about different things like canals and how they stay smelling nice, shutting down of red light district and hash café’s, why the houses are tilted forward, and the buildings. After this we decided to try and find the other Spanish people but we couldn’t so went back to our hostel for naps. After the naps we started to walk back to the tram station and ended up running into the Spanish people. The Spanish people had been in the park next to our hostel eating mushrooms! They were tripping out and laughing so it was nice because we could lead them back to downtown. After downtown we walked around a bit with them and then went into a club where they offered us free shots! They played a lot of Spanish music at this club so it was fun just dancing and hanging out. After that Emily and I decided to head back to our hostel and meet up with Samantha.

Tuesday morning we had to check out so we decided to just leave our bags there and just see more of the city, but the city near our hostel. We went to the park in front of the
