Opening Day Oktoberfest 2007
We got up at about 7am and had our free breakfast from PP Travel which consisted of some warm baked beans and some stale toast. After that we jumped on the first bus towards Oktoberfest. We arrived outside the Lowenbrau Beer Hall at about 8.30am and lined up outside waiting for the doors to open. At 9am on the dot the doors burst open and we rushed to get a table. If your not at a table then you dont get served! So we then had the three hour wait until the first drinks. We let three Italian guys sit with us then four other Aussie chicks and we were full.
The brass band started playing and then all hell broke loose at 12pm! The waitresses in traditional dress brought out steins 10 at a time and dropped them on the tables! It wasnt long before everyone was getting crazy, it only took the italians about 3 sips of beer. We partied hard there for a while then made our way to our friends table when the Italians started to get out of control and the girls became nervous. We then kept drinking hard into the afternoon until we couldnt drink anymore, we then went outside for a walk around, sample some food and Mel wanted to go on some rides. After a huge day we made it home to our freezing tent and rock hard and icy ground. Next time I will remember to bring a jumper and not just a beer coat.
