Traveling with my family, one of the greatest things we did was rent an AirBnB unit for Oktoberfest. We got a 3 bedroom flat in a cute residential neighborhood less than a mile from all of the tents, rides, and (amazing) mayhem. The whole unit for a week was less than 1 hotel room for the week! This allowed us to make Munich our home base and take an evening trip to Rothenburg (adorable!!!) for the night without feeling guilty.
The other great thing about a flat when traveling abroad is the ability to keep a similar routine at night and in the morning such as having a cup of tea on the couch or a midnight scoop of ice cream before bed (yes, I did both of those!). With so much to learn and explore in a new country, being able to keep some parts of your routine is such a luxury!
Can't wait to be home and use a computer to share more adventures and travel tips, but till then, here are some photos!
