Autumn

Munich has had a short lived summer and now each week fluctuates between not yet giving up on Summer and wanting to be Autumn. I love this weather... the biergartens are still open, the breeze is cool, and you could easily have a hot chocolate or an ice cream and be content. We opted for a gelato at Max-Weber Platz in Haidhausen. I refer to this area as 'Nachwuchsplatz' (offspring plaza), because I always feel like we're the only couple there without children.

The sweet little Amorino shop may just have one of the prettiest gelatos - perfectly shaped into a flower. (I chose Pistachio + Spekulatius (almond biscuit)).

Gosh I miss Biergartens!
The French don't have anything like it and I miss going for a walk with my children and casually stopping by a Biergarten on our way home, ordering some Pommes with Currywurst so I don't have to cook them dinner when we get home...

My husband and I just spent a couple of days in Alsace and I could have a Bretze there but it just wasn't the same without a Biergarten to enjoy it at...

Enjoy your Bavarian autumn, Emily!

That ice cream cone looks fabulous! I wish those would make it as far north as Northrhine Westphalia!
