Garmisch

We took a short little trip this weekend, and it was great to get out of the house and to see something else for a bit. Mia is turning into a great traveler so we didn't even want to rip our hair out towards the end of the trip.
When we drove into Garmisch, I realized that it was a tourist town with one hotel after another, like little soldiers in a row. I really really do not like that at all, but because it was only for two nights, I just let it go. The rooms were cute and the breakfast was good.
We ended up paying 180euros for 2 nights for 4 people with breakfast, so it wasn't bad and definitely worth it.


We got in late Friday night. We ate at this place that was holding a convention of hunters. In Germany, that doesn't mean Camo and Beer; it means a bunch of dudes in leather shorts and little fuzzy hats playing the music of the Alps.
 The next morning we had breakfast and then the girls jumped on the trampoline for a while.
 


  

Saturday, we went for coffee at this really great place called Mohr resorts, where the view is absolutely breathtaking. 

 

 

I really want to stay a whole weekend here. . . this place is awesome.!
Later on that night, we went to dinner with Bre and Fili, which is why we wanted to go to Garmisch in the first place. 


 No, I don't know what is wrong with my hand -- it has a mind of it's own, I guess. 




One of the things we went to see was this Olympic Ski jump, that looks like an alien landing strip to me. It blows my mind that anyone in their right mind would jump off this thing. I kept saying it looks like, if you jumped off of it you would fly so long until you ended up in someones yard; apparently, those strips are where you land, so what do I know? 
We decided to walk to the the Partnachklamm. But, we never got that far because it was too cold and we got hungry, so we ended up in this tiny little place that led to the 'pastry incident.' 
 This is Fili with his cappuccino chamber pot.

This is a little dessert that Bre ordered and that ended up being mangled by everyone at the table. Mia licked the chocolate syrup off of it and Fili stuck his French fries in it. It was filled with Neapolitan ice cream and whip cream. I actually heard people gasp at the other table when the lady set it in front of us. 
We left shortly after that and slowly made our way towards Munich to visit a friend we hadn't seen in several years. After having coffee and tortellini, we headed home in the car.
All in all, a great time with family and friends.
