Have you ever been to an Oktoberfest celebration? They're a lot of fun, even if you don't like beer.
The music, the people and the food are fabulous. After going to a few different Oktoberfest celebrations in America, I decided I'd like to experience the traditional Oktoberfest in Munich. I'm so glad I did. Just once. And if you have the time, I encourage
you to do the same.
I invited my British friend, Emma, to join me. Emma (who I met at a grocery store) is a warm and wonderful person. She's the kind of woman who adopts not one, but TWO stray cats. She's a great friend. We stayed at a nice hotel and bought Dirndls... those
cute little dresses that show off a curvy girl's figure.
We danced on the tables and talked with the nicest people from all over the world. The food was definitely a highlight. Here's a look at some of the traditional German food from the Oktoberfest in Munich in 2010. Prost! (A traditional German toast.)
