I had to accept a kid sled because the adult one was too big for me ):

..and hiking!

Luckily here in Bavaria they really know how to enjoy the wintery months, and have ways for everyone to do it. If your like me and have never skiied before and dont quite have the time, sledding or rodeln is the best way to enjoy sliding around in the snow without getting too messy.

This past weekend we headed over to Unterammergau where the PĂźrschling trail is

A great year round hike, that just so happens to be a great ski spot in the winter with a superb sledding path. ( you hike up and sled all the way down, how fun is that?!)

Now I must admit, we didnt quite make it to the top- after 3,5 km uphill in the shin deep snow the fun had turned to some serious work and we were ready for play

Ending up at the bottom soaking wet ( next time definitly bring snow pants) hands frozen but overal bursting with bliss. We then decided to quickly get warmed up with some scrumptious  steamy soup and a well  deserved alcohol free weißbier

Pro tip: Always end with soup

woke up like dis

YES winter is finally here. With it came snow, glorious, super snow. Unlike what I assume to be the majority of the population, I am extremely overwhelmed and over joyed by this weather. I love running in snow, walking in snow and day dreaming from my office window as it snows.The chill in the air and the silence of everywhere that comes with that frosty white cushioning just gives my heart little pitter patters.

s’no day like a snow day

The city becomes more alive. It is so bright, hopeful and beautiful. The sky becomes an extra magnificient shade of blue and the rivers flow with a little more grace than average. I find Munich to just be the best place to go for chilly strolls. What can I say, I am a little winter romantic.

I like to often imagine I am in a snow globe or a Thomas Kinkade picture. Although I do love my outdoor activities

Running in a winter wonderland

I find that there are a lot of cozy indoor activities to revel in. In Munich we have so many lovely museums, exhibits and naturally, oodles of cafes.
