In mid-August 2014 the world’s first “Giga” geocaching event was held in the Olympic Stadium in Munich. Ami and me travelled to the event on a coach organized by our caching buddy Simply Paul. It proved to be an eventful four days.

If we thought the trip down to Munich took a long time, the trip home made it look like a short hop by comparison. It’s fair to say that we underestimated the amount of time it would take.
The old town of Munich is really quite pretty and is packed with interesting buildings and activities.
We went to quite a few of them. Mainly the ones that sold ice cream, if I’m honest.
A visit to Munich’s Olympic Park and Olympic Stadium for the world’s first ever Giga caching event. A mixed bag in terms of weather, scenery and caching. Excellent !
Simply Paul had done a mighty fine job of organising a bus tour from Milton Keynes down to the first ever Giga Event in Munich.
