Oh, what an early flight! I still had time to buy a pair of shoes at the airport before we left.
We arrived a little late, but our luggage took a further hour to reach the terminal. After a ride on the S-Bahn, we checked into the Le Meridien Hotel. We stayed in a "Queen Suite" (don't laugh) and were treated royally by the staff. Our champagne was ready and chilled - we couldn't leave it to suffer, so toasted Alfred's birthday and downed it before whistling off to the Christkindlmarkt at Marienplatz to give Alfred his first taste of Weisswurst with sweet mustard and Bretzn.
The weather was overcast and drizzling when we set off for the Glockenbach restaurant on Kapuzinerstrasse. But was it worth the Michelin Star? We had a superb meal, although the handwritten menu with lots of especially long words to describe the particular goose that made up my confit and the berries that made the sauce with Alfred's roe deer. All washed down with champagne cocktails and a rather good Frankenwein.
After such a lovely day, all there was left was to argue before bedtime. Over an umbrella. Dunno why.
