Randomness

I don’t have much to say in this post, but I do have photos to share for those who like to look at them! The first picture is of Philipp and me as a few people have asked for a recent picture of the two of us! I think my boyfriend is just getting more and more funny looking! (just kidding…you can decide for yourself!)

Have I mentioned how much I love WordPress? Man, it was so easy to upload that photo!

The next picture shows a tradition in Munich. One of the symbols of Munich is the lion, because of a guy named Heinrich der Löwe (Henry the Lion)…beware, I’m about to whip out my tour guide knowledge! Henry was a medieval knight to burnt down a bridge and upset a Bishop, which ultimately lead to the founding of the city of Munich.

In any case, outside of the royal residence in Munich, where the Wittelsbach family lived, are two gates, each have two lions with shields on either side of the arch…which makes a total of 4 lions. On the shields are smaller lion faces, and if you rub the noses of these you receive different degrees of destiny! Rubbing one lion will get you luck…two will get you fortune…three will get you riches…BUT…if you rub four, then you’re just greedy, and you don’t get anything at all! This is me rubbing my third lion:

luck, fortune, and riches

luck, fortune, and riches

And last, but not least, here is a picture of me in front of a VERY BIG BOOK!!! It’s awesome, because it’s like a medieval manuscript too! And the Theatinerkirche is in the background.

This picture seem to redefine the idea of book worms…

So, for those of you who have continued reading all this way…I will give you a sneak peak hint about what I plan to post about soon! The following things will be coming:

1. Working at BMW (and pictures!)

2. My apartment

3. VIDEO POSTS! Yes, that’s right, I’ve seen them around and I’m going to try it out for myself! Have I got you at the edge of your seat yet? *grin*

4. At some point I would like to write about random stuff that goes through my head and I write down in my little black notebook…like my thoughts on Aristotle’s literary theory, aesthetics, and some of the stuff I’m learning about art history. Let me know if you are interested!

Tales of Tours

I don’t have much to do at the moment, so I guess I’ll go ahead a post a few pictures from the tours I’ve been doing. I work for New Munich Tours and do three hour walking tours of the inner city of Munich as well as the Beer Challenge, a tour specifically about the beer capital of the world! The pictures are just of me…I’ll post some pictures from some of the stops on the tour some other time!
