    • Munich or Reykjavik??

      Munich Apr 8, 2014 at 12:19 PM

      I'm meeting a friend in Munich 22Aug and my airline ticket I'm booking has a layover in Reykjavik. If possible, I'd love to stay a day in Iceland and explore and meet my friend in Munich a few hours before she lands. Or Land in Munich a day early and explore Munich. I haven't called the airline to see if it's at all possible to extend my layover for the same price, but for those of you who have done both....what are you thoughts? 27Female traveling alone. Reykjavik or Munich for a day?? Things to see, how expensive is food and hotels you recommend? I'm obviously on a budget (aren't we all?) Safety of both? Any and all input is much appreciated!

      Earlier this year I visited Bamberg and purchased a hat- a woollen cap. I am very pleased with it and should like to purchase another. I have lost the address of the shop and will be grateful if someone can provide me with the information I need: i.e. name of shop, telephone number, e-mail address.

      The shop window had the sign "HOLLAND" in the window and "WEGENER".

      The shop is situated on the left side of a street leading acroos the bridge towards the Cathedral
