Excitement in the air this morning as we were meeting our friends of from South Carolina at the Munich Airport. We drove there and Ben dropped me and our luggage off at the gate we had found yesterday. He headed off to drop off the rental car and walking back, Ben ducked into the arrivals concourse and immediately saw out Uniworld escort. He rushed about 1/3 mile down to where I was waiting and we ran (as much as 2 old people can run) back to Gate D just as Robbie and Janice Hunter came through the customs gate. We had a nice ride into Munich with narration by our guide and arrived at the Roomers Hotel in about 30 minutes.
After settling into our room, our group, Robbie and Janice Hunter, Van and Lynn Holmes, and David and Jan Booth and Ben and I walked to Augustiner-Keller, a landmark restaurant known for its large beer garden & hall, serving Bavarian & international dishes. We sat for a couple hours just getting reacquainted and telling travel stories. The group was a little jet-lagged and returned to the room for naps and Ben and I walked to Old Town Munich. I am not going to write a lot about it because we are doing a guided tour there tomorrow. We walked back to the hotel( a long walk), rested for a bit and headed out to Servus Heidi, a "Modern Bavarian Wirtshaus" and is based on the Bavarian roots and traditions. I had Munich Schnitzel with white asparagus and it was delicious. After 2 hours of talking, laughter and being entertained by a ladies’ group dining beside us, we strolled back to the hotel and had an early bedtime. My step app today is on 15,216 steps so GOODNIGHT,!
