Travel is my driving force in life, and although I have had the privilege of visiting 30 countries so far, my heart will always remain in India...
Munich, capital of Bavaria, is the city of green spaces and the Oktoberfest (beer drinking festival). Sights worth seeing include the ancient and splendid paintings gallery, the Old City, the Nymphenburg Castle and the English gardens that is often frequented by all of the young people in Munich. This garden lies along the Isar, the river of the city, and named "Isar the green" due to its colour. The Schwabing, the neighbourhood of artists and students is equally a treat, especially close to the small triumphal arch ? the Siegestor, the Fine Arts Academy built at the end of the 19th century. Picasso recommended this institution to his contemporaries. In this Bohemian neighbourhood, visitors can stop in front of the trendy cafés, not leaving out its restaurants, inns and famous Munich breweries (whose appellation is strictly monitored throughout the territory). The painted façades of Munich buildings alternate between pink (especially at the Maximilian Square) and ochre (the Theatines church). One can equally find countless red-brick buildings. The buildings with pavilion roofs as well as the 950 ft tower erected during the 1972 Olympic Games have become the symbols of the modern city. The Olympic Games increased the number of tower blocks in the city (whereas tall buildings were forbidden before the Games). As an alternative to public transport (which is quite expensive), the bicycle is the most widely-used means of transport once the good weather sets in.
