We got into Munich late, so we only had a little while to walk around the city. We ended up eating at a pub where I experienced my first wiener schnitzel. It was surprisingly good! It reminded me a lot of country fried steak. We also went and saw the world’s largest pub (they couldn’t grasp the fact that we didn’t want beer) and the famous Glockenspiel.
The next day we had two business visits. Our morning visit was to BMW and I absolutely LOVED it! We were able to get in some super sleek cars and hop on some super sexy motorcycles. After feeling rather gluttonous, we sat down to a Q&A with a BMW employee. I absolutely loved it because he worked in brand management for BMW. My favorite thing he said was “You don’t sell the product, you sell the experience.” It definitely made me consider brand management as a career path. The second visit was to KPMG. It was about audit and accounting. Enough said.
I’m sad that we did not have more time in Germany, because I’m sure I would have loved every minute of it. I’ll just have to come back!
