The Glockenspiel in Munich city!

Sam and I woke up pretty cold still. Neither of us had gotten much sleep, it's hard to sleep when you're shivering and drunks are carrying on til 5am. We got up at 10am to get breaky, pancakes today!! We stacked up on the pancakes, enjoying a hot chocolate and trying to get warm!!! Sam wanted to head into Munich city first today and look for some kind of blanket or whatever to keep her warmer. She'd been a lil silly and hadn't really packed correctly, with singlets, thongs (flip flops!!!) and ballet slippers. She wasn't too happy with the situation in general.

We headed into Munich, it was sunny today which was lovely and the city was busy and everyone was in a lively mood. We watched the Glockenspiel at 12pm which was beautiful and got some lunch.

Then we went on a hunt for bedding etc. No  luck with the bedding but Sam got herself some slippers to wear.. Haha, hot or what! Then we headed into the showgrounds. We walked around together for a bit before I really wanted a beer so we split up. She went back to the campsite and I went to find the Spanish boys who happened to be in the Augustiner Tent today and were sharing a table with some girls from Denmark who were really cool and e local German couple who were trying to talk to us in little to no English. I smiled and nodded politely. We bought beers, played some drinking games which resulted in me sculling just under half a stein. Thats almost a litre! I had to sit still for a good 10 minutes as I thought I was about to bring it back up!!! That wouldn' have been very attractive.
Hola Andoni!
We enjoyed singing and drinking for awhile before once again 'Table Reserved! GET OUT!!'. Those beerwenchs really know how to do friendly.. haha.

From there we walked around the show grounds and got some food - more chips for me!! We decided to head back to the campsite, get ready and then go out in Munih city. We caught some tubes and eventually got back to the site. We were going to meet back up at 9.30 at the tables. Once back in the tent, Sam was still awake so we started chatting. I got into my sleeping back to keep warm... and fell asleep!! I was pretty drunk and once I lay down, I was asleep!! Beautiful, warm, drunken sleep! I woke at about 1am, cold, shivering and sober realising I'd missed the boys. Whoops!! Nevermind, the sleep I'd gotten was well needed. I tried to get back to sleep in the cold tent, listening to people singing in the distance.
