I randomly signed into Instagram on the computer (via web browser as I don’t keep the mobile app on my phone) and came across this in my feed from the muenchen account:
“Besser als mit einem zünftigen Weißwurstfrühstück kann man doch eigentlich gar nicht in den Tag starten”
(You can’t really start the day better than with a hearty veal sausage breakfast)
I grew up in Germany, and I’ve made countless trips back in my adult life with the Army and later again for weeks at a time in vacations across Europe. Many a time I’ve had a breakfast like this there, and man what I wouldn’t give to do that again soon.
I’ve done Oktoberfest several times too, and had planned on doing it again in 2020, but you know.. the ‘rona put the kibosh on that. For the first time in it’s history, Oktoberfest was cancelled last year.
Well, here’s to better luck this year and beyond. As they say in the iconic song that the bands break into every 10 or 20 minutes at Oktoberfest…
“Ein Prosit, ein Prosit… Der Gemütlichkeit!”
(A toast, a toast, to cheer and good times)
