My Oktoberfest Experience – Bucket List #67

Two weeks ago I ticked  #67 off my Bucket List and jumped on a flight headed to Munich, Germany for my first ever Oktoberfest experience.  Due to the copious amount of beer I consumed, lack of sleep I had, and the few too many drunken stumbles that occurred, my body is still recovering!

A Guide to London’s Attractions in Under 48 Hours

London, there really is no other place on earth like it. A city so diverse and full of culture, creativity, history and charm, you’re almost guaranteed to fall in love with it. It comes as no surprise that so many Australians have, and continue to, claim London as their home away from home.

Germany seemed like the perfect place for me to base myself giving it being so central to the rest of Europe and on the door step to so many surrounding countries just waiting for me to explore. I also decided to take on the exciting challenge of living day to day within a country where English was spoken as a second language.

Although I had done my research and thought I knew everything there was to what lay ahead for me on this journey, there were quite a few things (both good, bad and interesting) I had to discover for myself. Continue reading
