Lame excuses, sorry for no updates

I figured I’d have a real update today…didn’t happen.  I thought I should at least make up a lame excuse or two for why I haven’t been updating much other than the twitter feed on the left hand side.  (new pics have been posted on my Facebook as well as photobucket)

I’ve been busy. That busy? No…but busy, none the less… Twitters up-to-date, leave me alone *cough*

My earlier excuse, for May, was that I had visitors…and I did. However, I have pics from their visits that I should upload, and haven’t done that yet. I also have pics from various tours in the last week…*Sigh*…always more to do. EDIT:pics have been uploaded

So to answer any general questions as to how much time you need for a proper tour of Munich: I’d go 4 hours…be prepared for several churches, a fair bit of walking, some 3rd Reich history, so Royal history, and some beer history. This is not including BMW or Olympic park or anything off the beaten path, really.

Is the BMW museum worth it? yes
Is there much to see at the olympic park? Not really, but if you’re going to BMW anyways, it doesn’t take much more to have a walk around and/or a short ride up the tower. I’m even considering doing regular tours out there because there is such a strong interest, I just don’t understand the interest myself. It is a nice park…nice stadium…concert hall…hockey arena…we even have our own “walk of fame…”
Is the Deutsches Museum worth it? I’d say only if you have several days in Munich. It’s a science and technology museum, which is very nice…but not really what you’re in Germany to see, no?
Do you really NEED 9 hours + for Neuschwanstein? yes, at least.
Well, we can fit Schloss Hohenschwangau in there too, right? make that at least 10 hours, then…make it 11 if you want any kind of a break.
American beer is weaker, right? Wrong.
