Munich Germany

A Helping Hand

I am sorting through church photos at the moment, but keep coming across photos taken at the Oktoberfest in Munich, Bavaria, from 2016.  I was trying to capture the young lady with her beer steins, when a couple from our party, definitely started to look a little worried 🙂

They Only Ordered Soup

I love going to the Oktoberfest in Munich, Bavaria.  We try to go each year, husband goes for the beer, I go for the photo taking opportunities, of which there are plenty inside the tents and out.  I just loved the look on this poor guys face, those trays are heavy.  

A good one for my ‘Occupation Category’ which as been a bit lapsed lately.


Julius K9 – Working Dog

I think Julius K9, is the name of the harness this german shepherd is wearing……..but what a great name for a dog.  Anyway for the purpose of the post, I name this dog Julius.  Julius I think is a security guard dog, rather than a police dog, going by his handlers uniforms.  We were in Munich, Bravia last year 2016, walking towards the Oktoberfest (the beer festival) when I saw Julius sitting calmly, waiting for something to happen, so he could spring into action and the reason for the muzzle….well he would most likely…..lick you to death 🙂  So Julius is straight into my ‘Occupation Category’  as security guard dog…..with handlers. 


Oktoberfest Shopping

I did wonder where all the lovely dresses came from, for dressing up for the Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany and when we went for our walkabout town, I found one of the sources.   There are special shops, just full of the wonderful costumes.  We did buy something each, my husband a blue and white checked shirt with a lovely dark blue waistcoat. I would have loved to have bought a dress, but I feel you should leave the lovely dresses for the Germans, well thats my story.  So I bought a woollen jacket and waistcoat that I can wear with jeans, and a small vintage brown leather handbag, as you are not allow to take large bags or rucksacks into the festival anymore. But being English, the part I liked best, everything was in the ‘Sale’ 🙂
