What’s better than beer and wonderful cupcakes for your birthday? I headed with friends to Munich to celebrate my 24th birthday! To be honest, the last (and only) time I was in Munich, I had a horrible experience so I was excited to go back and change my impression of the city! I definitely had a much better time the second time around : )

Enjoy some photos from my time there and look out for a more detailed post in the upcoming weeks!

      Gosh, drinking a mass is much harder than it looks!

  1. Looks like you had a great birthday! Love that you carried candles around with you everywhere, so much fun! Did you have a chance to stop by the farmers market near Marienplatz, called viktualienmarkt? Love that place!

    • Jordan Reply

      Yes! Actually I had breakfast right on Viktualienmarkt at a cute British restaurant :) The market was going on the entire time we were there!

  2. Yayyy what a good birthday celebration! I love that you put candles in everything throughout the day. The ceiling of the hofbrauhaus is CRAZY! I want to go there

      The Hofbrauhaus was crazy! Yes, it was a bit touristy but I feel like it is something you need to do if you visit Munich!

  3. Glad you had a great birthday! And it wouldn’t be a visit to Munich without a ton of beer, haha ;)

      hahaha of course! And considering I’m Beer Time With Wagner…I have a reputation to uphold ;)

  4. I love that you carried your birthday candles with you that day! haha Happy Birthday! I can’t wait to check out Munich… one of these days I will make a weekend adventure out of it!

      haha thanks so much! You definitely need to head to Munich…where do you live again in Germany?

    • Jordan Reply

      haha, I love my birthday. Probably a bit toooo much but come on, it is the only day where it is acceptable to be “all about you” ;) xo

    • Jordan Reply

      I thought the EXACT SAME THING! ughhhh, guess I’ll have to come back to Munich so we can get a picture together ;)

    • Jordan Reply

      Awww thanks so much! You should definitely take a weekend trip there! I got super cheap tickets on Deutsche Bahn and it is a really manageable city :)

  5. Happy birthday! (slightly belated…) Great photos, as always. Also, I’m a little jealous- I lived an hour from Munich for three years, and I was in the city many, many times, but somehow I never managed to get to the top of that tower. I’m not sure how I missed that.

    • Jordan Reply

      Awww thanks so much Steven! How did you not to the top of the tower?! That’s what everyone told me to do!!! haha, guess you’ll just have to come back to Europe ;)

    • Jordan Reply

      It was so great and I had such a good experience the second time around!

    • Jordan Reply

      hahaha, typically me. Of course beer would distract me! xoxoxo

  6. Happy belated birthday! Looks like you had a great time in Munich. I love your idea of carrying candles around by the way, I’m definitely doing that for my b’day in March! x

      Carrying candles around makes everything better! Thanks so much for the birthday wishes :) xo

      Those pancakes may look cute but they were even more delicious!!! The view from above was definitely the best!

  7. Happy belated birthday, Jordan!! I’m glad you were able to have a better time in Munich — it’s a city I’ve enjoyed the couple of times I’ve been there. Also: those beers are no joke, haha!

      Hi Erika! So good to hear from you! I really enjoyed my time in Munich :) I think 2015 is the year we finally meet. How much longer do you plan on staying in MI? xo
