It’s another early morning, left hotel just before 7am to catch the 7.32am train to Garmisch-Partenkirchen for a 2D1N stayover. So for that night, we double booked accommodation for ourselves – our room in Munich (so we didn’t need to pack/move our luggage) and a room in Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
Enjoying the marvellous scenery during the 1h20m train ride.
Collected the KLOOK cable car / cogwheel train tickets (which we purchased the day before we left for our Europe holiday) at Zugspitzbahnhof Garmisch-Partenkirchen. It’s a very short walk from Garmisch-Partenkirchen train station to Zugspitzbahnhof, contrary to what we read on google map.
Lunch at Panorama Lounge 2962, at the top of Germany @3,000m above sea level. We liked the view so much that we stayed there for a good 2 hours.
So glad that we got a nice espresso machine last year. It made our stay-at-home days of 3 months a very nice one. While most people found it stifling, we enjoyed our home, especially with the continuous supply of coffee and food at our own cafe corner. I was too busy exploring recipes to feel bored 😄
December has been a truly great month for us, with a super fabulous holiday for the first part and lots of family bonding for the second half.
We were completely busy for the last 2 over weeks. Only started our yearly Christmas preparations when we returned, meaning we were only left with 10 days to settle decorations, buying the remaining gifts plus wrapping, planning Christmas menus and getting ready for the Christmas parties.
Also bought some pine branches to make our own Christmas wreath. It has been a “tradition” for me since a couple of years ago.
Also took the chance to catch up with a cousin during my office Christmas-New Year closure.
Well, year 2019 ends very well for us and I know 2020 will even be a better one!
