I'm writing this the evening before I head back to my Swiss home from vacation. I've been spending the last 11 days in Bavaria (Germany) where my family is and before that I spent four wonderful days in Edinburgh (Scotland).
To give a short review on those days: As mentioned, wonderful! And not only did I see Edinburgh and thus Scotland for the first time but also got to see the Festival Fringe (biggest culture festival worldwide) and two...yeah, I wanna call them friends
I met the stage duo Aydin Isik and Mike McAlpine again who were performing there and I could talk to them again, have drinks with them. Just an awesome time with awesome people.
Speaking of awesome people, also I saw other shows there (pretty much selected spontaneausly) and they were all a joy to watch (and listen to whenever it was musical).
If you are interested, these were the shows I watched at that time:
- Mike & Aydin "North-South Divide" (2x) (Comedy/Cabaret/Music)
- The Laughing Mirror "Guy Fawkes it up" (Comedy/Theater)
- George Class "Scientology: The Musical" (Comedy/Music)
- Puppet Beings Theatre "The Backyard Story" (Taiwanese puppet theater with clothes)
- MAC Theatre "Binari - Memory of my Mother" (Korean theater/Music)
...as well as several artists and musicians on the Royal Mile showing their skills without having own big shows
I can definitely recommend going to Edinburgh and visiting the Fringe if you love shows of all kinds and love being surprised.
Whenever possible, I want to upload at least a few good pictures of the journey. At least I've been preparing drawings for a Fringe tribute artwork
Oh and before I forgot: Yes, my first flights ever (to Edinburgh and back) went perfectly fine!
After that, as mentioned, I went to Bavaria and did some things like seeing my family members and even visiting beautiful/interesting Bavarian spots like the Chiemsee (especially Fraueninsel) and the Obersalzberg and not far from it the area where Adolf Hitler lived. Very fascinating.
Now I'm mentally preparing for being in Switzerland and at work again. And I'm also looking forward to several stuff in the near future like seeing "David Gilmour: Live at Pompeii" in the theater next Wednesday, enjoying the upcoming Autumn, hopefully seeing some theater plays in the Cologne area this Autumn and, of course, making more art
That's it for now. Best regards!
