Munich was basically a shit show. When I arrived I was super sick – a sore throat, achy body, and a throbbing head. We met up with our airbnb hosts and they showed us around their cute apartment. They left. I laid down on the bed and I researched the nearest pharmacy. Here’s the kicker – it was Easter Sunday. So everything was closed. And the next day was EASTER MONDAY. (What the hell kind of holiday is that?) Anyway everything was closed the next day too. So I made some tea, curled up in bed, and tried to sleep the sick away.
I slept a lot. I cried a good bit, and I listened to S-Town. I ordered food through Deliveroo, cause going out into the rain just wasn’t happening and most things were closed due to Easter freaking Monday. Surprisingly, this food delivery was a very important moment, because I discovered my love for butter rings. Which is literally just a salted pretzel cut open and slathered with butter. Apparently it’s a normal German thing, but my mind was blown. It’s definitely something you need to eat in your lifetime. Not healthy, but necessary. JUST DO IT.
Two days passed and finally I started to feel better – physically and emotionally. So I put makeup on, bought a green juice, and danced around the beautiful airbnb kitchen. I made more avocado toast. Shilo wrote some new beautiful music. And finally we tried going outside.
Outside. That was one hell of a cold adventure. It was snowing. Like, BIG, flakes. It was cold. And the city was very fancy and preppy. I ate some very mediocre health food. (I shoulda stuck to eating butter rings.) And that was basically all of the city we saw. Except for our last night. Shilo played a show at a very strange, but cool circus/techno club venue. That was the coolest part of Munich we saw, except for our airbnb.
Munich was the time we needed to rest and recuperate. I worked on realigning my heart and mind and body. And I tried to stay warm. I had a running joke while I was there that I would give Munich a solid 4/10. It was alright, and to be fair I didn’t see or do a lot, but it wasn’t my favorite. It’s really clean and fancy, but not fully my vibe. So take that with a grain of salt. It’s not on my list of places I need to return to, especially when I compare it to my next adventure in Crete…
