Discovering new places and venues. It’s an amazing feeling to find the hidden gems that either only the locals know about or that you stumble upon by sheer accident. Meeting new people is also quite incredible, for not only do you get to share your experiences, but also learn something new about your own city. And if the people you meet happen to be tourists, you can get some invaluable advice about where they’re from that you can use when you visit!
Having lived in Munich for a considerable period of time, I started becoming oblivious to many wonderful things that used to mesmerize me. When I started doing research for Party Earth, looking for interesting venues and discovering exciting activities to participate in, I began seeing the city in a different light. Recapturing the appreciation for the small and sometimes seemingly trivial details of everyday life was one of the greatest experiences for me that resulted from this job. I realized that to truly experience the city, you need to always keep your eyes open, regardless of whether it’s a place you’ve lived all your life or somewhere you’re just visiting.
Adriana. I have an unhealthy addiction to my Blackberry, a moderate obsession with Chloe and YSL, and a genuine passion for opera and classical music. Most Fridays, I’m either sipping champagne at a chic lounge with friends or dancing my soul out at a club.
Wandering around Fünf Höfe shopping center and looking into every little shop to see if anything strikes my fancy. After having lunch somewhere near Marienplatz, I’d stroll past Odeonsplatz and head to the Englischergarten, which is absolutely spectacular, especially in the summer. After hours of walking, it would be time to relax with a beer or Weinschorle in the Chinese Tower beer garden, perhaps while reading a book or simply observing passers-by. To finish the day, I’d have a night out dancing at Nektar or P1.
