I had settled in and now it was time to explore. So will just mention the highlights of these first 5 days.
To explore the city I had choosen to do 1 of those bus tours. There were two options the inner loop or the outer loop. The outer loop was a nicer choice as it took you to Nympthemberger palace, Olympic Park and some other places on the outer edge of the city. And it was better value for money as the outer loop joined the inner loop and ran along the inner loop. So for a small extra fee I took the Outer Loop. As the Bus started moving the tour guide was good and kept on telling us interesting things about the city. The first stop was Nympthemberger palace. Our tickets were valid for the whole day so we could leave the bus and explore the palace then catch the next bus later.
The 2nd day was my trip to Fussen and Schwangau.
The 3rd day was spent on my own walking through the city centre, and looking for and having lunch at the famous Hofbrauhaus.
The 4th day I went and explored the English Gardens. 1 of the ladies that work at Jeager's had told me that in the English Gardens there is a section on the river and there is a standing wave there. And that the locals surf it. I was interested to see this standing wave so that was my goal for the day to find this wave. The English gardens are very big and there are 3 rivers that flow through these gardens. So spending the day I walked around and looked. And found the wave. The rivers were not flowing that strong so the wave didn't look that impressive, but you could imagine with the rivers being a lot stronger after maybe winter that this would be a decent size wave.
Day 5 was spent organising my train ticket for Salzburg. Organising accomodation for Salzburg. And relaxing at the hostel.
