Week in Review – September 19

Bus2alps has had yet another fun and exciting week. We kicked off the opening weekend of Oktoberfest in Munich! We are pretty sure Munich now knows Bus2alps is here, and we are coming bigger every other weekend. Guests were able to spend Friday in Munich, taking part in a super fun bike tour of the city before hitting up the beer tents for the opening day of the festival on Saturday. If Central Europe wasn’t enough, Bus2alps also invaded Eastern Europe, with trips to Prague and Croatia. Croatia got a pleasant surprise when a group of Bus2alpers conquered the rapids of the Cetina River, and injected even more life into the already vibrant Split nightlife. The Czechs was no more prepared for our group of adventurer seekers taking over the fairytale world of Prague by way of New Europe Walking Tour and the famous Clock Tower Pub Crawl. Oh, and we can’t forget those who cliff-jumped in Amalfi or ate authentic pizza in Naples. Thanks for coming out everyone. Now, what happened back at home?

This past week Bus2alps Barcelona rocked the house with a ‘Welcome Party’ for  200 international students just arriving for the Fall 2011 semester. This typical BCN fiesta blared dance music late into the night, and awarded Taylor of Cal Tech with a FREE trip to Paris. Bus2alps is really excited for Taylor and her friends to have an amazing time in Paris with us! If you are looking for alternatives to Barcelona’s vibrant nightlife, the Bus2alps running club still meets every week, and soon will begin our cooking classes, where you will learn how to make homemade Sangria and Paella. YUM!

Don’t let Barcelona fool you, the Italians know how to have just as much fun. The week in Florence was highlighted with Dollar Night at Lion’s Fountain, 2 for 1 Tuesday at Astor, and the GRAND Opening of YAB’s Wednesday University night. On Wednesday, there was a free coffee give away sponsored by Bus2alps at Mama’s Bakery. People all over Florence could come in to get free cappucinos and delicious American style bagels.

Over in Rome, tourist season is winding down, the locals are returning to the city, and the concert scene is lighting up. Get ready for Afrojack and Fleet Foxes, both of which the Bus2alps Rome crew are organizing some fun groups to go and enjoy the live music. As always, people all over Rome are not only excited about being there, but also excited about upcoming trips to Oktoberfest, Croatia, and Amalfi Coast.
