An Interesting Punishment In Munich

Europe 2011


View Europe Tour 2011 on Advontuura's travel map.

Unfortunately, while we were legally aloud to drink in Munich, it wasn't allowed by our chaperones. They actually laughed when they saw us, and said they would let it slide; however after a few other people in the group took it to far they felt it was only fair if they punished everyone for it. Which leads me to my next story... Church

While the rest of our group went on a shopping spree in downtown Munich, us rule breakers were taken on a walking tour of the city before they decided what to do with us. To be honest I was actually pretty happy about it at this point. The thing is I would way rather spend my time out in the streets than in shops we have in Canada. Despite being a big city, Munich manages to maintain much of that old European feel. I noticed signs on some of the buildings promoting the 2018 Olympics... I might have to try and make it for that!

Premature maybe, but I'm already looking forward to coming back!

At loss for what else to do with us, our chaperones brought us into St.Peter's Church to take a look around. As luck would have it a mass was just beginning. Sensing the perfect opportunity to give us a punishment/learning experience, our group stayed for the entirety of the German mass. While it wasn't my first choice activity for the afternoon I can't deny that it was interesting. I think you notice body language and expression much more when you can't understand the language. The man in front of us was certainly impressed by a bunch of teenagers taking the time to attend the service on their holiday (which made us feel a bit bad for the reason we were there). In the end I think we got a more valuable experience than we otherwise would've.

For some reason I didn't end up taking many pictures; I didn't even get one of the church! Despite that, here's a few of the ones I did take.

And the best part is we had another day in Munich...
