Rosenheim, Schmosenheim…or Beerfest?

So my first taste of Germany was the lovely sight of a family dressed in lederhosen as we drove into the city of Rosenheim. Seriously? How stereotypical. But then I remembered, “Ah! It is the last day of Oktoberfest!” Excellent. I was going to grab my camera but I didn’t want to look like that weirdo tourist on her first day in Germany…although I totally was that tourist, so I just did it later when I walked through beerfest by myself.

It became increasingly apparent that I wasn’t German when I showed up not dressed like this:

Ah. Perhaps I should have gone here first:

That would have been helpful. But anyway, the city is quaint. Plain, but nice. It’s cool to see the Alps in certain places. I think I may start going to an international church so that I can meet some people. Find the English speaking crowd 🙂 I will start German lessons in the next few weeks, so that is exciting! I’ll be able to speak yet another ugly language. Woohoo! English, Italian, and German! Obviously, Italian is beautiful..I meant that English and German are a little rough sounding. Plus, the mom and kids of my family speak Spanish (mom is from Spain) so I guess the count will actually be 4 languages because I am starting to remember and pick it back up from all of those years ago! Look out, world…my resume is about to get awesome!

Anyway, Jill and I are trying to plan a trip revolving around concerts in her last week in Europe. So far we’ve only found that Bon Iver will be around. Hmmm…must think of other bands to check out. So I’ll leave you with some pretty Rosenheim pictures!
