Welcome to a little version of Flashback Friday on the blog today! With it being that time of year and seeing so many posts making me reminiscent of past events and great times, I decided to share when I went to Oktoberfest here in Germany. To do that we have to go back to 2009 and we also don;t travel to Munich. What??? Yep. I have never been to the Oktoberfest in Munich, but I did have the opportunity to go to a local celebration with some great friends.
Some of the bigger cities and/or small towns I noticed have their own local Oktoberfest celebrations. Back in 2009, my friend Cruz came from the states to visit me and since Munich wasn’t really an option, we thought we might as well check it out. We went to the town of Wittlich which is located in the Rheinland-Pfalz state and has a population of about 64,000 according to Wikipedia. This town has some decent shopping and I used to frequent quite often. (We still do now as a close friend of ours lives there). So my friend Cruz and my friend Nicole who also lived in Germany at the time, headed off to check out what a local Oktoberfest was like. Here a few pictures from our night…..
All in all it was a really great time. I’m not a big crowd person, so for me, it was just right. There were enough people to make it fun and not too many to make it not-so-fun for me. The majority of the photos were taken by my friend Cruz, who is an excellent photographer. (You can see more of his work here.) Of course, the ones with all three of us must have been taken by a random fellow beer drinker.
