  • Lebkuchen, gingerbread heart necklaces decorated with German phrases such as Ich liebe dich, I love you, are also easy to find. I think these gingerbread are intended for souvenirs or gifts because they taste absolutely awful.

With the rainy weather deterring visitors, Oktoberfest had only half the usual crowd in 2015 of 500,000 attendees. Although significantly less attendance, 775,600 chickens and 7,700,000 liters of beer were consumed. The lost and found received 4,500 items including 21 children and 1 dog. All were returned to their owners. Prost!

Author: The Traveling Gingerbread

My fiancé, Mitch, and I have been traveling together over four years. Living and working full-time in Pittsburgh, PA, we travel as much as our vacation days and finances allow. We cram each adventure with activities, tours, and experiences to maximize our time. Any time we travel, we try to visit to a local brewery and can't walk by an Irish pub without stopping in for a pint of Guinness. 
 In Tokyo, we laughed every time we saw someone talking on their large, animated phone case. We had to buy one. Having an obsolete IPhone 5, the selection was limited. We purchased a gingerbread off a neglected rack in Shinjuku, Tokyo and The Traveling Gingerbread was born. You can purchase your own adorable gingerbread friend here! The Traveling Gingerbread is an entertaining account of our travels, fun facts, and tips we learned along the way.
