In two days time fellow blogger Amy S and I are going to be throwing ourselves headlong into the beer festival Oktoberfest. I feel I can trust you enough to admit I am rather apprehensive, and googling the above picture and more like it have done nothing to quell the nervous excitement that keeps bubbling up at inappropriate times.
Luckily after four days of liver destroying amounts of beer, drunk Germans (and lets not forget all the drunk Aussies for that matter) we are going to spend a relaxing four days in Berlin. Drinking an unholy amount of beer (a very different quantity to ‘liver destroying’, my fellow alcohol enthusiasts get it) and exploring everything Berlin has to offer. As this will be my second visit to this amazing city I am very much looking forward to what more delights I’ll be able to discover, now that I’ve already seen the major tourist draws.
I suppose I’d better drag myself away from the warm embrace of my laptop and pack and while I’m at it I’ll say a little prayer to St. Arnold, the Belgian patron Saint of beer, for a safe and happy trip.
