It's been a while I haven't posted anything. The occuring Oktoberfest here in Munich seems to be a good reason to write something :-)

What happened during the sommer? Well, first of all I was working quite a bit, so I was not really able to do anything exciting. Except for some happenings... Kathrin and me went Rafting on the Isar in Lenggries. First of all the guide asked us, if we were experienced. Well, a couple of years ago I went rafting near to Mendoza, Argentina, on the Mendoza River (have a look here:

But anyway. How was the Isar rafting. Well, boring. Even though we got our own raft with one other guy without a guide, the isar river is not as compelling as the shotover river in New Zealand. But it was fun, as we got a lot of fun by jumping into the water and pushing the other from their raft.

Last week the Oktoberfest 2009 started finally. I went with a friend the opening ceremony to the Hofbräu Tent, which was quite a lot of fun. The Hofbräu tent semmed to be THE place to be for all Kiwis, Australians and British. Unbelievable. Some of them asked me seriously where all the Germans are... We entered the tent at 9:30 and the first barrel beer got opened at 12 o'clock, which meant 3h of waiting. But we picked up the pace quite fast and it was a lot of fun.
