Blog – Oktoberfest 2010

Ohmm pah pah…… not at all.  But how do we describe the amazing experience of Oktoberfest 2010 in Munich.  It was the 200th anniversary of the beer fest………. Over a four day period we had three days there. We LOOOOOOVVVVVVED it. What a party! So much to see and so many people to meet. We were in heaven! We met so many lovely people we had such a good time.  And the “tents” – bigger than our largest event halls……… so much awe!

So, ten tents seating up to 100,000 people………  and then the outside – a carnival like NZ’ers have never seen. Oh my – we were open mouthed “kids”.  Another 100,000 people there apparently……. Lots of families and kids too.

So not sure what to tell you as really it was drinking beer and meeting people we did.  Hard to describe the amazing event. 

Maybe I can tell it by photos…………..
