What I wore:
You may have seen from my instagram last week that I went on a short trip to Munich with Thomas Sabo. Travelling somewhere new is my absolute favourite thing, and getting to do it with a brand like Thomas Sabo made it extra special. Myself and my lovely Irish blogger buddy Nuala flew into Munich early on Wednesday, and after checking into our hotel and having a quick rest, we joined the group of other European bloggers (all of whom were so lovely) to head to the Thomas Sabo store in the city for a little celebration and some bubbly. We were also treated to a beautiful Love Bridge bracelet, which we got engraved with our choice of word or message. As cheesy as it sounds, I chose to get “#CODTravels“ written on mine, to commemorate this little trip. I’ve been flown to London for presenting work many times before but this was my first international trip through my blog, so it all felt very special to me.
After our visit to the store, we all headed to Oktoberfest, which is something that has been on my bucket list for a few years now. Oktoberfest is the world’s largest beer festival and travelling funfair. Held annually in Munich, Bavaria, Germany, it is a 16-day folk festival running from mid or late September to the first weekend in October, with more than 6 million people from around the world attending the event every year. We were given a guided tour of the festival before heading into one of the special beer tents for some traditional food, and some German beer, of course! I’m not much of a beer drinker, but I have to say that the festival was a lot of fun, with an amazing atmosphere, and everyone cheering, singing, and dancing on tables with their massive glasses. Needless to say, I was happy to see my bed that night after such a long (but fun!) day.
I have another post coming up about my second day in Munich, so stay tuned for that in the coming days. You can also check out the hashtag #CODTravels on Instagram to see more photos from the trip.
Hoping you’ve all had a great start to the week!
