For the past month my son Nik has been bopping around Europe on a student Eurailpass. From the looks of his pictures on Facebook, I’d say he’s having a blast. One of his recent destinations was the Oktoberfest celebration in Munich. It looked like a fun time.

It has beer and pretzels (does this look familiar, Nik?):
