Meeting a blogger buddy--a blind date.
Yesterday, I got to meet blogger friend Amie--face to face. It was so funny because as Amie put it--"This is like a blind date." Since I was in Munich and Amie is not far, we set a date and time. We ate lunch, watched crazy street performers, went to a open market and I showed her that people do surf in Munich. I know it's crazy and the hubs being a crazy surfer-- bought a board too. They river surf here.
The Isar River runs through Munich and is channeled off throughout the city. It sometimes has a wicked current and the way the bottom of the channels are formed creates a standing wave. The main one is in the Englischer Garten (Eisbach)--I think it's the hardest one to surf too. There are other standing waves around the city as well where these crazy people surf (the hubs being one of them).
Amie took some fantastic pictures. Please go to her site and check them out.
We had such a great time and she is really cool. I hope to meet up with her again one day.
Have you met any of your blogger buddies?
Oh and Amie sorry about the whining German kids on the way home. :) Let me know how the books are.
Have a great day!
