in 2008 i went to oktoberfest. it was when i was in europe shooting a destination wedding at neuschwenstein castle.
of course if you are in or around munich at oktoberfest, you can’t NOT go.
the funny thing? i think beer is gross. but knew that didn’t matter…so off we went..
the beer gardens are MASSIVE. as in MAAAAAAASSSSSIIIIIIVVVVVEEEE! (get the picture?!)
and everyone is friendly. :)
this is the outside of a massive beer garden..
thankfully these big mugs of beer are mixed half with lemon juice. i suspect so that you can drink more and get drunk not as a fast. i still thought it tasted nasty. :)
the souvenirs were plentiful…i scored a canvas bag, that i still have and use to this day. :)
i thought this was a crazy cool way to bake fish!
this guy was AWESOME. :)
and of course ladies in their respected german outfits..
there is more to oktoberfest than beer - there’s a whole amusement type park - good fun for the whole family.
yes.. next time i will take my lover with me to oktoberfest - he’d enjoy it im sure. :)
