When Vicki went to Oktoberfest last year on a girls’ trip, I thought that my chances of making it to Munich in September became very small. I was thrilled when a group trip was put together. Of course, Vicki did most of the planning, reserving a table for dinner and identifying a suitable hotel. There was a process to filling out the 10 seats at our dinner table… Started with Danni and Paul. Included the Cogleys, who unfortunately moved back to the US over the summer. To our absolute delight, we were able to work it out to meet friends from Elmhurst, Brett and Kari. Filled out the table with the Bradley and Leigh-ann, and Ken and Laura.
The day could not have been anymore perfect. Ideal temperatures and bright sunshine can only have added to the crowds, which were big and perfect. The fair grounds and restaurant were full with people from around the world, in dirndls and lederhosen, smiling, laughing, drinking beer, and having fun.
