Weekend Trip to Munich ~ Fleamarket, thrifting and food!
A couple of weeks ago we went on a bus all the way down the A9 Autobahn to Munich, our old home. We hadn't been back since our move back to Berlin and the annual giant Spring Festival fleamarket was the perfect excuse to visit old friends and neighbourhoods and most importantly restaurants! Here are some impressions of this year's fleamarket:
One of the highlights of the fleamarket was of course this lifesize yoda statue. I don't even know if it was on sale, because I was too scared to ask for the price!
Upcycling workshop in Hamburg.
Wearing sunglasses over glasses, that's how you do in Munich!
The last thing we found was an awesome toy dragon:
He's going to be the perfect Smaug for our glass cabinet at home.
These were my favorite fleamarket finds:
the stupendous Smaug (50cent)
The Hobbit boardgame (4€)
The Lord of the Rings boardgame (2,5€)
After roaming the fleamarket we were hungry for some chinese food at our favorite restaurant:
The Jackie Chan China Restaurant has got everything a chinese food lover wants plus an awesome name! Are you surprised that when we first went there it was only for the name?
Invigorated by various kinds of fried rice/noodles/vegetables we headed to my favorite second hand store in Munich, the "White Raven".
On the ground floor you can find lots of used furniture, electronics and rarities.
If you head upstairs there's glasses, silverwear, dishes and other kitchen and cooking supplies.
Right opposite to that is the textile area where you can find everything from wedding dresses to wifebeaters. This is actually where I found my wedding dress for the cicil registry office for only 4€, which I'll show off soon.
The last room is full of books and tapes and other media. They actually have a very large collection of english books as well and since there was a half price sale on children's books this time I bought 5 hard cover books of Harry Potter in english for only 12€ total. Strike!
In other news we went to eat burgers, visit the old neighbourhood(it's still exactly how we left it)drink beer,eat sushi & ice cream and hung out with a bunch of good friends. It was like we never left, but we did and I was so happy when we got home late at night on Sunday to drop into our bed in Berlin!
