Happy WIAW from Munich. For those who are new around here or don’t stop by regularly, I started my internship on Monday so everything is still pretty new for me. I never knew how exhausting working could be. I spend the day in an office, basically sitting all day, but still by the time I leave work I feel like I could use a power nap and nearly fall asleep on the train home.
Since today is my third day at work I sort of know the drill by now, especially when it comes to lunch. I packed a lunch on Monday just in case the company didn’t have a canteen (which they do) and am testing the food there this week. If I like it enough I’ll eat lunch at the canteen and if after this week I feel like I’m better off bringing my own lunch, I’ll do just that!
As always, thank you Jenn for hosting this weekly foodie party.
Yesterday my alarm went off at 6:10am. I don’t have to be at work until 8:15 or 8:30 but I like having lots of time in the morning to get ready, eat breakfast, read blogs and emails and just start the day off slowly. For breakfast I had overnight oats which I consider the perfect breakfast for stressful mornings. But I also enjoy them when I have plenty of time for breakfast.
To my usual mix I added a small nectarine and goji berries for a more summery flavor! Topped with coconut and spelt puffs. T’was delicious!
The train ride to work is exactly 33 minutes + about 10 minutes of walking to the station and to work. Half an hour is the perfect amount of time to read. Currently I am reading Wild by Cheryl Strayed which I highly recommend.
Yesterday I had lunch at 12:00, which if you ask me is a tad early. I had an unpictured banana as my morning snack so I wasn’t really that hungry yet but since lunch in the canteen is only served until 1pm I’d rather go with my colleagues than all alone. As already mentioned the food in the canteen could be better but it could also be a lot worse. For lunch I had a small portion of Schupfnudeln (sort of like dumpling buts formed as noodles) with vegetables and a side salad.
Sorry for the iPhone picture. I tried taking a picture without people noticing. I really don’t want people to think that I’m a crazy person who takes pictures of canteen food which, hey, I am!
As an afternoon snack I had the last Nakd bar that I brought back from England. Enjoyed in the office.
I got home from work at about 6:15pm and was so tired. After a quick skype session with my mom I went for a short run to explore the neighborhood. I really forgot how therapeutic running can be. I was so exhausted after work but knew that I would feel 100 times better after spending some in the fresh air.
I live in the southern part of Munich and although it’s only 15 minutes from the center during my run I felt like I was on a quiet country-side trail. So peaceful and beautiful! This will probably become my regular route if I feel like doing a short run.
After my run and a quick shower it was time for dinner. I’m really lucky to have my own little kitchen so cooking is easier than ever before. I made pork tenderloin, zucchini-tomato “ratatouille” and spelt rice.
And that’s what a day in my life looks like right now. I haven’t had a chance to explore a lot of the city yet, but I’ll keep you updated with lots of pics and info as soon I get round to it.
