My dirndl! I didn't realise that where you tie your bow has an actual meaning to it, in this photo (at the start of the day) I had it tied at the back; until I met Jorg and he told me that it means I'm a widow. If you tie it on the left (at the front) it means you're single, in the middle a virgin and on the right married/taken! I was grateful that I wasn't going into Oktoberfest as a widow :)
Jorg also bought me a "Lebkuchen Herz" that says Mausi, which is basically an affectionate name for someone, for example in English we use "Honey" and so on.
We managed to grab a place in one of the beer gardens and ordered some beer and an extra large pretzel! Excuse my wierd expression in this photo, the sun was right in my eyes! The beer wasn't for me, but for Jorg as I'm not such a fan for beer. However I did try it and even I could tell it is much stronger and nicer than normal beer!
I will hopefully be going back again in the next couple of weeks!
