Photo Gallery: Oktoberfest in Munich

Oktoberfest Munich 2012 Pictures

While you will soon be able to read the story about the travel portion of Oktoberfest in Munich on Jeffsetter, I wanted to share the full photo set here for friends and family.

Oktoberfest was everything I hoped it would be and then some. Great beer, food and fun with all kinds of American expatriates in Munich. Amanda and I met some great new friends and have memories we won’t soon forget.

We got treated to excellent seats at the Hippodrome through Amanda’s work, with a table overlooking the main floor of the hippodrome. The table came with some great food as well.

All was great, and after our time in the tent we ended up going on a few rides and then watched the single most entertaining game I have ever seen (video below).

By the way, have you been following the honeymoon trip on Jeffsetter?  Get Caught up here.

Next Stop: Mauritius and Oktoberfest!

Man, it seems like years ago that I first blogged about our planned honeymoon in Mauritius. Come to think of it, it was nearly a year ago that I first booked the trip.

Now we are exactly 1 week away from our departure to the promised land(s)!

Since then, a lot of the details of the trip have rounded out and I plan on blogging about the aspects that my wife will allow me to talk about.

Here is what you can expect to see from me if all goes well and motivation stays high:

  • Delta Lounge at Washington Dulles (if this exists)
  • Flight Report: Air France Business Class from Washington DC (IAD) to Paris (CDG) on the Airbus A380
  • Air France Lounge in Paris
