Munich Day Two

Here are the photos from Oktoberfest. It was a total blast, I really would like to go back and do it again, and again, and again, and...well you get the idea. Only next time with table reservations.

We had lots of fun eating and drinking, as you can see so did most people. I love the feel of a big crowd and everyone having fun and the food was great as well.

This was the Spatenbrau horse team. All the big tents (each tent sponsored by different breweries) had their own horse team that went around the grounds during the day. You could get right up next to the team and meet the people who care for the horses. There are some photos of other horse teams in the sideshow above.

Now of course after you have spent the time in the tents drinking and eating yourself to your happy place then you step outside to the midway and rides some rides...well you might but I did not think my stomach could handle it so I took a pass on the rides. You can tell I was feeling no pain in the video above with my sequel at the end of the video. I had no pain but enough sense not to ride the rides!

This is just a small taste of what the inside of the tents feel like at night. It was exponentially crazier than I could capture for you in a video but you get the idea. Keep in mind that there were probably 10 tents this size on the Oktoberfest grounds (all with bands and plenty of drunks) with loads of smaller places. The night we went the tents were so packed all we could do was find a seat outside. It was a great time and if you get the chance to go you should!
