This is split into two chapters. I think this my attempt at keeping people interested, and chapters make it sounds as though I have some exciting story to tell, and in my eyes I do, but secretly it was just easier to write in this way. Here is the story of my half term week – time to get your reading specs on.
too cheesy rhiannon, calm down
Over the Easter Holidays, which seems like an eternity ago now, I went on a bit of an adventure. You may recall how I went away to Austria over Easter 2014 on an orchestral tour to Vienna, and it appears that music, Austria and long haul coach trips are now somewhat a tradition for me over the Easter break. However, this year I did not have my sheet music and violin in tow, but ski boots, goggles and a slight apprehension about what I had actually signed up for. This time I was off to Snowbombing Festival.
On Friday night I had the joy of seeing the inexplicably talented Laura Marling play a breathtaking performance at the Manchester Albert Hall – a venue that although once a church, seemed as if it was actually built for folk music to fill it rather than hymns.
I want to do a bit of a profile of some places that I have visited, but because I am pretty sure I will visit most – if not all – of them again at some point, I’m going to call this ‘series’ (woah getting a bit of professional over here) “First visits” cause I’m so creative with naming things. So here is the first of the first visits. How apt!
Vienna, Austria, Central Europe
