Day 6 - Munich for Oktoberfest!

This would be our last morning waking up in Stuttgart, at least for a little while, and I can honestly say we were torn up about it. They had welcomed us with open arms and in truth it was killing us to have to leave. But, the wide world awaited and we had no choice but to press on. Frank drove us to the train station and we said our final goodbyes and were off to Munich.
When we first got to Munich we had only one objective, find Oktoberfest. This was not nearly as difficult to achieve as we anticipated. We only had to follow the constant stream of lederhosen flowing out of the train station.
After we polished off our beers we left the tent grinning. Stopping at a sausage cart we quickly ate and headed back to the station to catch our train. When we arrived in Vienna it was already nightfall and we really had no idea where we were. Not a good combination. But after a little bit of aimless wandering we found the Step-In Hostel. The people at the front desk were very helpful and polite and we had high hopes for the cheap hostel. However, these soon dimmed. The place was under intense renovation and felt more like a burned out Iraq warehouse than a hostel. We shared the room with three other people. This was something we had anticipated, but I don't think you can really anticipate waking up with strangers that don't speak you language. It was awkward at best. We counted the day as a win however. Cheers.
