Munich: Oktoberfest

October 3 is a national holiday in Germany, the Day of Reunification of West and East Germany and the Bavarians had decided to extend Oktoberfest by 2 days, ending on this holiday. Enough reason for us to postpone the World Tour event at Neuschwanstein Castle to Wednesday, October 4. As the saying goes, and it is in fact a reality, Oktoberfest is always blessed with beautiful Indian summer weather or—as they call it here—“Altweiber-Sommer,” the summer of the old women. And after that, the weather generally shifts into autumn. This year, the last, extra days of Oktoberfest were grey and miserable, but what happened the very next morning? Great flying weather for our airship! Once again, the coffee grounds in Istanbul had proven to be right.
