After Alsace, we drove for 5 hours to Munich. Our original plan was to stay in an apartment in Munich, but from the very beginning it didn’t look too good. We went up to the apartment and it was a garbage dump! There were stains everywhere and Jake and I were going to have to sleep on the floor!! There was some sort of chemical sludge on the porch… so, we talked to VRBO for 2 hours (it was blistering hot inside while we waited) and eventually we got to stay at the Marriott hotel in Munich instead. The Marriott was great… and air-conditioned!!
The next day, we went to the Deutches Museum, which is one of the largest Science and Technology Museums in the world! We got to spend a whole day there and we only got through 4 floors of 9! We want to go back, but at least I got to go to all my favourite spots. I loved the nanoscience areas and the new technology areas the best.
The next day we got to spend a whole day at a lake called Feringasee. The thing I liked the most about it is that we got to do a two-hour bike ride all the way there and then back again. Both ways me and my dad sailed through the streets of Munich on our bikes without any problems but my mom and Jake kind of struggled. They didn’t do too well because they were very nervous about riding through the streets with all the people everywhere. After the lake, we went for dinner at a restaurant in Munich with ribs and as some of you may know Jake doesn’t do too well with ribs. He ended up covered in rib sauce! We also had yummy ice cream in Marienplatz and listened to music made by glasses. It was soothing.

The day we left Munich, we drove to a large water park called Therme Erding. I was a little scared at first to do down the giant water slides but eventually I plucked up the courage to go play! Compared to other water parks I’ve been to, this one was the best! It was my favourite because the slides were huge and me and Jake could do a lot more stuff!
After Munich, we drove to Nuremberg… my mom is going to write about that! I am having a really good time in Germany, but I’m ready to see my dog, Sam. I miss him.
