Watch an episode that isn't an episode. Also, we're climbing Mount Kilimanjaro!
The European leg of Metallica's Bobblehead Tour is nearing its end. We've wrapped up Germany, and only Vienna, Austria remains. The band played Saarschliefe, Heidelberg, Schwetzingen Palace, Karlsruhe, and Munich.
Another day of walking around Munich. Highlights included Karlsplatz, Frauenkirche, Marienplatz again, Kunsthalle, Hofgarten, and the delicious Hofbrauhaus.
The first of two days walking around Munich. Highlights included the Beer and Oktoberfest Museum, Marienplatz, Odeonsplatz, and a couple of really interesting memorials.
During a 5-day stay in Karlsruhe, we explored the city itself and visited Heidelberg, Mannheim (though very briefly), Schwetzingen Palace, and caught a fantastic jazz performance.
Anne Marie took us to the gorgeous Saarschleife, and then took us on an impromptu mushroom picking trip.
We visited Miriam, an old friend, in the small university town of Jena. It was a relaxing few days, filled with good eatin' and good laughs with good people.
We started the day with a visit to the SfE School for Adult Education with our host, Noel. Things got a little strange after that, with visits to the Currywurst Museum and the Art of Banksy Exhibit.
We explored one of the World War II bunkers called Underwalten and learned about Otto Weidt, a blind broom maker who protected Jews from being taken to concentration camps. We followed that up with an afternoon of graffiti art and the coolest karaoke venue out there.
