“[…]Then you try to remember where it all started and you discover that it started earlier than you thought …
Long before … and that’s just at that moment when you realize that things happen only once, and that no matter how hard you try, you’ll never feel the same ”
Federico Moccia – Three meters above the sky.
The tale of Alejandro and Paula begins in the distant Bavarian lands, where a determined Spanish guy traveled for work and ended up finding friendship, and then love.
Paula, the sister of Alejandro’s best friend, first was his (great) friend until one day she realized that there was something else. Without quite knowing how or why, that friendship had become something much bigger. Being friends was nice, but it was not enough.
This engagement session in Munich was like a gymkhana: we started visiting Neuschwanstein Castle (the same that inspired Disney to build his own). From there we went to Walchensee lake, where we feed our spirits with its landscape and our bodies with a delicious Käsespätzle (my new favorite meal).
The following day we strolled through Glockenbach, Sendlinger tor, Marienplatz (where what looks like a cathedral is actually the Town Hall), Odeonsplatz, Hofgarten, Englischer Garten … at full speed because we should go to drink some “little jars” of beer at Frühlingsfest with the traditional Bavarian dresses (dirndl and lederhosen).
So much to know and so little time for it.
From this trip I went with the memory cards full of images, my personal backpack full of experiences and strong desire to visit again Munich.
Thanks Paula and Alejandro for being such great hosts. See you very soon!
