For Claudio’s birthday, I gave him tickets to a Summer Days festival in Arbon, Switzerland on Aug. 25 (two days after we returned from Mallorca). He had been talking about going to a concert together for a while, so I thought it would be a fun present. Claudio’s parents were so sweet to watch Alex while we went. The weather forecast was showing a good chance of rain, but we were still hopeful, up until dark heavy clouds formed above us. 😉
We listened to a few Swiss bands, including Plüsch, Lovebugs & Patent Oschner. I was then eagerly anticipating the Scottish singer Amy Macdonald at 9 PM. By that time it had already rained for a few hours straight. Tarps were put down to protect the grass underneath, but it didn’t stop mud from developing. Luckily, we were all decked out in rain gear, from rain boots to rain jackets and ponchos over top of everything. haha!
The following day we went to a little neighboring town to Arbon called Romanshorn, which is also right along the Bodensee (Lake Constance). A race was taking place, so we stopped to watch and took a walk by the lake.
Oh the irony at how beautiful of a day it was, just the day after the concert!
