This deserves a post of it's own.

We ventured into the Germany city this time, to see the 40th Eurofolk Festival in a town called Ingelheim. We had an incredible time, surrounded by probably every hippie in Germany. I have never seen so many dreadlocks, haha! 

It was held in a really cool sort of church compound in the vineyards right on the edge of town.

Everything was a-freakin-dorable. Hand painted signs and buses, barefoot children, happy wandering dogs, in other words, pretty much everything I want in my life.

The kids were the best part, I loved all of their little hand-made clothes and carefree attitudes.
This little one was getting his face painted.

There was really good Afghani food. I have nothing to compare it to, but it was GOOD!

Fruit wine! I sampled elderberry, rhubarb, and another I don't recall, but they were all delicious.

We saw a new band, Black Diamond Express Train to Hell! (great article here.) Loved, loved, loved them :) Melissa didn't stop dancing and, surprisingly, neither did most of the other people there. I've honestly never seen a German actually dance at a concert, and I've been to a few here. They had great energy and we will be going again to see them on Sunday.


And this is my favorite photo of the evening:

I'm having a problem writing blog posts to share with you. I want to share, and I love everyday here and everything we do, but it all makes me think "This may be the last time I do this"... The last time I see these flowers bloom, the last time we go to this festival, eat at this restaurant, visit this person. It's hard to have our time winding down here but I will try my best to share it all!! At least I'll be able to look back and remember it all better then :)


  1. I love the post about this festival. I love free spirits and those who have a carefree attitude. I love the pictures of the children with handmade clothes and all the people just truly enjoying life. That is what life is all about isn't it? I'm having the same feeling too. We only have a year left and it's hard to imagine a place I have fallen in love with. I am trying to soak it all in but am afraid I won't ever be able to remember every detail.

  2. That looks & sounds like such an amazing time! I feel like you live in an entirely different world and I'm always so envious :) I love the swing picture - it looks like it's from another time.
