On a Euro Trip back in 2016, two friends decided to quit their jobs and travel Europe. On their first stop in Amsterdam, they bunked with two lads from Australia at Bob’s Youth Hostel in the heart of the city. Excited for adventure, the group became close and later realized that their travels would see them cross paths again a few days later in Munich. After a few pints and a shared love for football, they decided to take a tour of Allianz Arena, home of Bayern Munich F.C.
Fun Fact: Back in 2016, the Allianz Arena pitch consisted of “hybrid” grass; a combination of natural grass and fine pieces of plastic grass. Shortly thereafter, the pitch was replaced with 100% natural grass as it could not withstand the wear and tear along with some oddly developing fungus due to the wet conditions.
The two Yanks still keep in touch with Jonas and Peter who currently reside in Perth, Australia. This photo series is dedicated to them for their friendship and for their continued passion for adventure.
