Bopping with Niall JP O'Leary

Niall O'Leary insists on sharing his hare-brained notions and hysterical emotions. Personal obsessions with cinema, literature, food and alcohol feature regularly.

Just back from a wonderful trip to Munich. Many thanks to Phil, Felicity and the family. Highlights? There were many, but some include:

  • Visiting the wonderfully restored Residenz. We talk of wealth now, but the wealth that created that place is mind-boggling. Das ist verboten, Lulu!
  • Dragging the kids up the steep staircase of the Toy Museum.
  • Eating the traditional Munich breakfast of weisswurst, weissbier, a bread pretzel and sweet mustard at the Viktualienmarkt. Unlike those who do the done thing I did not skin my weisswurst. (Brings tears to the eyes just thinking of it!)
  • Queueing for, and getting into, a pretty comprehensive Kandinsky exhibition and a four year old's subsequent near destruction of a foremost masterpiece of the 20th Century.
  • Schweinshaxe.
  • Weissbier.
  • Schweinshaxe und weissbier.
  • Visiting good old Zweitausendeins on Turkenstrasse. Resisting buying this time.
  • Family friendly brunch on Sunday.
  • Italian show business. Sha-sha-sha-sha!
  • And most especially just seeing the team. What's going to work?

Shucks, I feel all domesticated now.
