Munich Travel Highlights

Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail. – Ralph Waldo Emerson

My husband and I traveled to Munich, Germany during an unusually cold spring around Easter. The weather was colder than expected and the churches full of visitors attending mass. We only know a few words in German, so everything and driving was interesting. Here’s a few Munich travel highlights from our trip.
