It's about a 30-minute Metro ride and there we were. We even caught a glimpse of the Tour Eiffel as we rode.

Avery and a gymnastics friend, Samena discovered they were both visiting Paris this summer.
They then discovered that, out of 1,792 Paris hotels currently reviewed by Trip Advisor, they were staying in the same hotel with one overlapping night - Friday night.
So they got together in the lounge to say hello.

What better place to take a granddaughter - the most famous beer hall in the world - and let her drink Apfel Saft (apple juice) out of a beer mug on our final night in Germany.

We stop briefly at St. Peter's Church to admire the light and airy interior.
It's time for a little shopping expedition at the Viktualienmarkt, the "Vittles Market" ("victuals") if you insist.

We headed toward the Zugspitze, but it was too rainy, cool, and cloudy to make a 100-Euro gondola ride seem attractive.
Instead, once in Austria we stopped at a cute little joint in Lermoos for lunch, before climbing back into our Spanish-made Seat rental car for the drive back to Munich. We enjoyed the views of the Austrian Alps along the way and Avery got to try Austrian hot chocolate mit Schlagobers (whipped cream).
