I can’t believe I’ve lived in Munich for almost a month now! Sure, February may be the shortest month, but it almost seems hard to believe that in the beginning of February, I was still in Regensburg writing my exams. The past few weeks was filled up with friends coming over… when you live in Munich, you always feel so loved because everyone just wants to come visit you all the time! Haha.
Luckily we have a couch in the living room that converts into a bed, so it has been really fun having my friend Miriam who’s currently working in Zurich, the bf’s sister and some of his friends from Mannheim, all over during varying times in the past two weeks.
One thing I discovered about Munich is that it’s a bit underwhelming when it comes to “tourist attractions.” Sure there’s the Nymphenburg Palace, the Residence and the English Gardens for example, but it’s hard to spend full days checking out these places, especially when it’s cold out.
Rather, I find Munich a better city for expats than tourists, since there’s so many cafes, bars, restaurants to try out and lots of things like museums, day trips and the nightlife scene to fill up your weekends. It ends up being a really fun city when you’re with friends, but I was a bit disappointed after I bought a monthly transit ticket, to discover that there’s not a whole lot in Munich that I could do and explore when I’m alone.
That said. in my upcoming post, I’m going to be sharing all my favourite things in Munich, but I thought for today it’ll be more fun to share with you guys…
…a peek into my Munich apartment! Come take a look!
Note that the bf is renting this apartment from an elderly woman, which explains all the floral and overly Bavarian decor around the apartment! All the vintage and wood makes me feel like we’re staying at a bed and breakfast sometimes, but it does add a lot of character to the place.
The apartment is only a few mins away from a tram stop, and getting to the city centre takes about 20-30 mins. Something I love about Munich too is that the trams run all night, so it makes going out so easy!
