Our flight to Munich was a steal, 88 dollars non stop and we were here in an hour and 50 minutes! What luck. We were staying at Dolce Munich Untershleisshim for 130 a night. It was nice had a good amount of accommodations and fulfilled our needs. I wish we would be spending more than just two days in Munich. But time was limited and we had to make things work in our favor. And since we are not of legal age, the Biergartens were out of question. Maybe in a couple years once we come back! For the first day we decided to go visit the Englischer gardens. Some people consider this to be a must see while in Germany. We enjoyed a nice relaxing day which included some boating jogging and just messing around in the outdoors. It was nice it seemed like a home away from home. We also decided to do some shopping. It there was multiple good deals we could take advantage of. It was nice to just take it easy for a bit. We also went to a couple cafes enjoyed a nice dinner and coffee. We decided that now since we were ending our trip off we were going to keep it pretty simple, and that is exactly what Munich offered us, simplicity at its finest.
Today was a day to visit the religious side of Munich. We decided to go visit two different churches today before we had our flight tomorrow. Our first destination was St. Peter's church. It was known as the oldest and smallest place of worship. We climbed to the highest tower to enjoy the view. We also saw the Skeleton of St.Munditia who was a martyr. The glittering alter also was something of great interest! We left St. Peter's and headed over to st Michael's church. Most renaissance churches I've seen had towers but this one does not because it apparently fell during construction and was never fixed. We toured the crypt where patron duke king Ludwig II and other people from the royal family are buried. It was interesting to see how different the churches are from here. Of course they are much older than ours in Mississauga, but you would think there would be some sort of resemblance. We enjoyed a simple dinner and headed back to our hotel. We packed up and were getting ready to head over to Krakow, Poland. I've been there many times but my friends haven't. It was nice to be heading back to my home country! Take to you soon!
