Today began our trip for SMO 448/648 – Family Business in Europe Study Tour. We travelled from Edmonton to Toronto to Munich, arriving in Munich at 10:30am local time. The day was technically a free day, so each of us spent the afternoon wandering the city. Some of us went to a beer festival, others started shopping, and the rest headed to Marionplatz to see the Glockenspiel and the Frauenkirche.
After exploring the city, the group met for dinner at the Pizzeria Coccinella – where the waiter kept us entertained with his zesty attitude and mix of German, Italian, English, and Arabic (some translation required). The food was delicious, and we all headed back to the hotel to get some rest and prepare for the next day in Austria.
Day 1 was a success: we all made it to where we were supposed to be! Now we just need to remember our numbers for the roll call (which still requires some work). Guten nacht!
