Sometimes everything gets tight. Situations, people, life events- the list could be endless. And when things turn out this way, people tend to cope with it differently. You know, going out getting smashed, locking up at home, writing a diary, taking a selfie with an inspirational quote they just googled and never heard about before, the usual stuff. I booked myself a solo trip to Portugal.
Fall means a lot of things: change of temperature, grey days and layering of clothes. A big Yikes! for me. But fall also means that the hippie dances at festivals are replaced with indoor locations. Some of them are simple, others outstanding. Last week I was part of one of the most beautiful indoor festival settings I’ve seen so far. Baloise Session has me two times this year and let collide two different generations. But we all danced together in the end. The power of music. So kitsch but so true at the same time.
On the second festival day we had way more time to enjoy everything slowly in Zermatt. We decided to go uphill to the highest event stage located on 3030m over the sea level to hear some fine jazz and face fully to the sun shining down. And who had known… later on I would be very amazed by an artist I should have heard about a long long time already.
Fall can be a season full of diversity: days can get still a nice warmth, but staying close to the city can also bring grey or foggy days. To celebrate the start of the colder season, me and my good friend Paulo decided to have a trip up in the mountains and head to Gstaad.
Earlier this year in spring, I had the great opportunity to join one of the most important mountain festivals in Switzerland, which is Zermatt Unplugged (see post here). Just last week, this lovely acoustic singer/songwriter festival was taken from the Swiss alps down to Zurich city for the first time – lucky me, I had the chance to join it again for two days.
My days at the Dance Event officially started yesterday, the schedule is pretty tight, but I really like to update you as much as I can.
After a brief lunch and meetup with other writers and creatives, Iamsterdam organized a very special canal tour for us. In the very beginning, I thought something like “Alright, let’s join canal tour #20”. Since I come to Amsterdam very often with a different person who’s never been here, the canal tour is quite a must. So for me it isn’t something new anymore.
My week in Amsterdam has started this afternoon, and I couldn’t be happier that I had the chance to come back this soon! I will pretty much try to keep you as updated as I can with this series that begin from today. I hope you’ll join the ride and be my companion through the streets of this wonderful city I’m never getting tired of, with new insights and finally attending the very famous Amsterdam Dance Event. I was talking to join this great event since five years already, and now it’s really happening!
For my northern light throwback, I’d like to take you to destination #2: amazing Stockholm!
I spent the most time I was in Australia by hanging around in Brisbane. This happened because I was trying to avoid thunderstorms coming up on the northern coast. As you might have noticed, I am a coast lovers, but I have to admit that Brisbane was one of my favourite cities of Australia. I walked through the different districts, and I put together a list of my favourite places.
