On Saturday I went to Munich for the day.
I decided that before I go on any extended trip,
it would be wise to learn the train station and see what it's all about.
In other words-
I arrived in Munich at 9am.
I had no map,
no travel book,
All I knew was that I was at the central train station for the Bavarian capital.
So, first things first,
buy a Germany travel book in English.
Why I did not do this before I got to Germany is a mystery.
I asked how to get to Marienplatz- the old town square,
and, to my relief, it was just an easy 15 minute walk.
In case you didn't know,
I don't understand subways and big cities scare me.
Put me in a foreign country where the main language isn't English and it's guaranteed that I will get lost,
Thankfully, that was not the case today.
I found where I wanted to go,
and didn't get lost once.
I did not wander far from the Old Square.
I live so close to Munich,
and so I decided to save other sights for a different day.
I enjoyed sights of the Neues Rathaus,
joined the crowd at noon to watch the Glockenspiel,
and climbed to the top of St. Peterskirche for stunning views of Munich.
I am so thankful that this city is only an hour train ride from the little village I call home.
