After landing in Munich, we had a five hour layover so we headed to the Lufthansa counter to see if we could board an earlier flight to Birmingham. There, we discovered that my return flight from Birmingham to Tokyo in April was cancelled or never booked properly so it was one of those high stress moments when I thought that I had to buy a new ticket for a few thousand dollars. Thank God that I was able to purchase the same flight tickets using miles online and confirm our seating. With five hours, we took short naps on the bench, walked around the terminal and had a small snack.
Our last flight from Munich to Birmingham arrived around 11pm and we finally arrived at our apartment hotel past midnight. We walked through Chinatown and managed to find the place in the dark. The apartment is nicely appointed with a living room, small kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. It's conveniently located close to the main train station and the shopping centers.
