Gotta go through pics over the next couple days. I'm sure there are hundreds of them.
Top 5 overall things is kinda hard, it was all really fun. I would say my top 5 would be:
-Visiting Neuschwanstein
-Private tour of the R&D brewery at Weihenstephan in Freising
-Driving on the Autobahn
-Night Watchman tour in Rothenburg ob der Tauber
-Cologne overall is a cool city

My top 5:
- Views of Salzburg from the top of the Fortress
- Neuschwanstein Castle
- Having samples tapped straight from the kettle on the private brewery tour in Freising
- Rothenburg, especially the Night Watchman tour
-Climbing to the top of Colgone's Cathedral (and trying not to freak out too much)

Pics to come!

Oh! Another thing that happened is that we now have a South Korean email pen pal after drinking with them at the Hofbrauhaus the first night we were in Munich.

I understand none of the things you guys are saying because I don't know any history of Germany or anything about the cities.

130 is fast! Were you scared?!

Neuschwanstein is the castle that the Disney castle is modeled after. It was built in the mountains southeast of Munich.
Salzburg is a city in Austria just over the boarder. A little more than an hour train ride east of Munich.
Freising is a town a bit north of Munich. Weihenstephaner is the oldest brewery in the world and is located in that town. It's also on the campus of one of the best brewery colleges in the world. My coworker went there and his buddy now runs the R&D brewery at the school so he hooked us up with a neat tour of the place.
Rothenburg ob der Tauber is a relatively small town on the north end of Bavaria (German state where Munich is located). It's "old town" area is basically preserved as a medieval city with the old medieval walls and guard towers still standing around it. They have a little tour where a guy dresses up as a night watchman from medieval times and brings you around the city giving some history about the town in a funny way.
Cologne is a city in the western side of Germany along the Rhine River further northwest of Bavaria.

It gets kind of nerve-racking getting up that fast for extended periods of time. I only got up that fast when we had a nice, open, straight stretch of road. I usually settled in around 100mph for longer distances.
