A Time to Say Farewell…

IMG_6298

After 30 months in Munich, it’s unfortunately time for us to depart the city and this fun project, called Munich Daily Photo. The good news is that I have a great friend who has agreed to take the project over – which I am very excited about, as I will be able to continue to see this tremendous city through her eyes. I will let her introduce herself as she is ready to start in the coming days. So on my final post I return to the spot of my first post – Kardinal-Faulhaber-Strasse, gazing at the majestic domes of the Frauenkirche. I love this street because it encapsulates so much about Munich, with the Archbishop’s palace, and the Palais Porcia (Munich’s oldest baroque style palace – built in 1693) in the foreground. The street also is where you will find the Palais Holnstein, which has served as the home of Munich’s Archbishop since 1818. And don’t be surprised when you see the outline of Kurt Eisner Bodendenkmal’s body (the first Bavarian Prime Minister after abolition of Monarchy) who was killed there. I like this street because – like Munich - it is unassuming but packs so much history. Most visitors would never make it to this street, but it tells so many stories about Munich – with its Literaturehaus + the English Hugendugel bookstore. That’s the unique part of Munich, it has so many sides, so many layers to get to know, so many intensely interesting streets to walk down. So on my 732nd post, and on my 732nd adventure, and on my 732nd walk down an interesting Munich street – I say "Auf Wiedersehen!"

It has been great seeing Munich through your eyes, Troy, even though I don't get to visit often. Glad to hear that someone will be taking on this project. And I hope that, wherever your next city is, you'll do a DP blog too! Good luck and take care!

On your last post, it's time for my first comment. Thanks for all your hard work. I stumbled upon your blog a while ago and promptly bookmarked it. As a newcomer to Munich, your blog has helped me find some of Munich's more hidden spots. Thanks for that! Good luck with your future adventures. :)

sad to see you go

munichdaily has been part of my daily ritual in the morning, and have inspired me to explore the city and its hidden corners... it was also amazing to see places that i just happen to photography a day or two earlier, prompting me and my partner to have a inside joke that you are following us, or that I am secretly the munich daily guy.

anyway, good luck with your travels.

kind regards

It's sad that you'll be leaving a city which, clearly, you love so much.

Warm best wishes for new sights, new cities, and new adventures!
