Here is part two of out weekend adventures! The Wine Festival
The next day we decided to check out the wine festival! Now THAT was fun. Granted it was a pretty small “festival” just a bunch of tables, and a little food stand. But there was an awesome band of what I can only guess were the members of a local Music Studio right in that same plaza. They were fantastic! We ordered a couple of glasses of wine, some plates of cheeses, as well as some sauerkraut with bread (seemed like the only vegetarian option LOL). We couldnt quite finish the sauerkraut, too sourer; ha! We arrive towards the evening, so it was just nice to relax and enjoy some music and food. It was also COLD! haha Ok.. so not super cold, but yeah, we were feeling it!
Monday I finally marched into the village’s “city hall” and got my business license! Woot Woot!! I am now a totally legit photography business and I feel pretty proud of myself for getting it all together in a timely manner. If you are currious about that, go check out my photography site Liliana Beatriz Fotografia at lilianabeatriz.com.
So yeah! That was our weekend! 😀
It was exciting to feel like we had so much to do, as it turns out the next coming weekends are filled with festivals and what not. So I’m excited to see more!
Decided to split this post into two parts, so it’s not a total overload LOL!! So this is part 1! The Viking Festival and more
So I know I’m a little late to be blogging about Labor Day Weekend festivities, but as many of you have been aware. I was in the process of changing my blog’s URL. I promise I will probably never do that again!! LOL It was a huge pain in the buttie and I’m so glad that’s all done. *Pat myself on the back* For figuring it out.
So yay for Labor Day! Not that anyone cares about that here in Germany, but we got to enjoy an extra long weekend. So we planned a trip to Ikea, checking out the Viking Festival in the neighboring village, and the wine festival in our village! Plenty to keep us busy.
So Ikea! Sorry, no photos of the shopping! But I made out with some furniture for my sewing/editing room that I’m sure I will blog about soon. It was kind of far, so not sure if we will be back soon… But it was nice to get a few pieces for the house and Lucy made out like a bandit. With a new kid’s table chair, a race car rug, and a train set. Daddy got a little storage for his garage too. So we all got something!
The Viking Festival definitely caught our curiosity and imagination. But sadly, it seemed no one spoke much English (ok ok… so maybe we were just being shy lol) and we had no idea what was going on… Talk about Adventures in Germany! From what we could gather… Large groups of what I can only describe as “professional viking campers” set up camp with huge fire pits and seating. These areas were roped off and each camp had their name and flag and what not. People were dressed in authentic costumes. Including children and babies!! I was kind of expecting they would break out into a sword fight between clans, but since we didn’t want to spend the entire day waiting around for “something” to happen, after exploring all the camps and finally getting Little Lue a turn on the swing, we decided to head back home. Even driving back and forth to the Viking Festival was an adventure though. You had to drive straight through a field and then some random dirt path through the woods. It was pretty funky. Weird, but funky. LOL
