Destination: Munich, Germany
About this photo:  Inside the Asam Kirche. Built in Munich in the 1700’s, this stands as one of the most ornate examples of  Bavarian late Baroque/rococo architecture. Just about everything is plated in gold.
Best deal found: In central Munich there is a huge outdoor food court/garden that tourists and locals flock to daily, the Viktualienmarkt. We had a fun, inexpensive intro to some German specialties: weisswurst (white sausage), schupfknudels (fried potato noodles), and of course, sauerkraut. That done, we found we prefered the German pizza, which was easily as good or better than that we’d had in Italy. And we’re wood-fired pizza snobs!
