This is one of the things I love in Europe. Wherever you go, there are always festivals going on even on winter, fall, spring or summer season. Most of all during summer season, there are more events and festivities you can witness anywhere you are in Europe. Whether you will just visit a city like Madrid, Berlin, Budapest, Vienna, Paris and more, there are always street performers you can find everywhere. You will also see them playing all sorts of musical instruments from superkick drums to guitars, violin, trumpets and what else? Name it and these street performers have it all. I can't wait to travel and see them again performing live on the street. One more thing, I can't wait to visit any festivals this summer to experience these musicians who are playing musical gadgets and instruments.

Hello beautiful people out there! How's life going on? Hope all is great! I am doing good so far and getting very excited for the next travels. Luggage are partially packed and I will be finalizing everything this weekend. There is no such great vacation when you are visiting your home country. In over a week from now, the long awaited vacation is about to commence.
|The stage where the shows are perform by various entertainers during my cruise trip in Greece last year.|
This week, I was watching this travel documentation about luxury cruise ships. I have been to some cruise holidays in the past and I love it very much. I hope I will experience it again.
There are so many things I love on a cruise holiday. One of it are the various live entertainments every night and also during the day. During that cruise trip in Greece last year, there were so many talented musicians who keep the boat rolling with their wonderful music. Many of them played various musical instruments like Applause Guitars, piano, drums and what else? I believed many of them play different instruments.
That is why cruise holidays are never boring because of these talented performers and entertainers from dancers to singers, acrobats and many more. Be sure to experience it once in your life! Cheers!

Hello folks! I am back here now! I hope you are enjoying the rest of the month of April. I just started the fun by going to a festival near the area. It started yesterday and will last until this coming Sunday. Volksfest, also known a people's festival or fair is very common in Germany. With the start of the spring season, various festivals are slowly starting everywhere.
One thing I love about going to the festival is especially listening to the live bands who played various music. I wish, I am like them who are experts in playing any musical instruments. Sad to say, I am not. You can also taste various delicacies both local and international. Most of all, you can enjoy the carnival rides.
Since playing musical instruments is not for me, I rather browse online and window shop for a cousin who loves playing any musical instruments. Since guitar center's my wish list is waiting for me, I rather sign-off now and start browsing their site.
I hope, I can go back to the festival this coming weekend. Last night was simply full of fun and laughter! Cheers!

Hello folks! I am back again from my travels. I am so grateful that I had safe trips and arrived home happy and whole. It was again another wonderful experience visiting some countries in Europe. Even though I already visited one of the places in the travel itinerary, I am still glad that I had the chance to explore the place for the second time and this time even longer. The other places were new to me and I am thankful to experience them for the first time.
It is nice to be backed home again. When I was browsing the newspaper today, I read some articles about spring festivals. I guess, I will be hearing entertainers like singers or musicians playing Bedell Guitars. What do you think folks? This is one thing I love about Europe, there are always events and festivals going on. I can't wait to visit some of them this spring season.
I wish to share some photos in some of the festivals I visited in the past. Cheers and take care folks!

It is still Fasching or carnival season in Germany. I have been watching the carnival shows on German televisions the past days. I really want to visit some of the biggest carnivals in the country like the ones in Cologne, Mainz or Dusseldorf but until now, I still did not have the chance. I heard over the news today that the carnival parades in some of these cities were cancelled due to bad weather. That was quite sad.
|The Chinese Fasching or Carnival in Dietfurt in Bavaria, Germany.|
Although, I did not really experience the biggest Fasching or carnivals in Germany, at least I had witnessed some of it in Bavaria. One of my favorite places to go in the region is this town called Dietfurt. This is where the Chinese Carnival is taking place every year.
|Participants of the carnival parade wearing Chinese costumes.|
One thing I love to see is the parade that goes around the town. During the parade, you can find very interesting carnival costumes from pirates, to fairies, doctors, nurses, policemen, witches, dwarfs, hippies costumes and many more. There are also street performers from musicians who plays violin, drums, trumpets, guitars and other musical instruments. After the parade, there are also live shows and group of bands playing at the town center. For sure you can also find jhs pedals use by the musicians.
Here is a little information about Fasching or carnival: The carnival session, also known as the "Fifth Season", begins each year on 11 November at 11:11 a.m. and finishes on Ash Wednesday of the following year with the main festivities happening around Rosenmontag (Rose Monday).
It is indeed such fun moments visiting celebrations like this! I love it!

Hello folks! I am back in this part of the blogosphere. How are you doing? I hope everything is running smooth especially that the holiday season is around the corner. I believed some of you are slowly getting ready for Christmas. As for me, everything is doing good so far. I can't complain for now except that I am so busy with many things. I hope for everyone as well.
|One of the things you can do during Christmas is to visit Christmas markets in Europe. You might find a right presents for your family and love ones in the many kiosks and stalls in there. This Christmas market was taken in Innsbruck, Austria.|
Anyway, since the holiday season is here I know that some of you are busy shopping for Christmas presents for your family, loveones, friends or maybe colleagues. I am just doing window shopping for now especially that I am so far away from home. I already bought some presents for my family which I will be sending thru balikbayan boxes early next year.
Yesterday, I spoke to a former colleague who loves to play musical instrument. We wear talking about concerts, music and playing of musical instruments. I was surprised when he mentioned that he can play a banjo. I was thinking that the best banjo capo would be a perfect gift for him. What do you think folks? I am planning to browse online about this music accessories.
Are you ready for the holiday season? I guess, I am! Have a wonderful celebration but be safe guys!

It is still not too late to plan for the largest festival in the planet? the only disadvantage is, it will be difficult for you to find cheap accommodations in Munich area and its surroundings. Oktoberfest is a 16-day festival with over 6 million visitors, both locals and from around the globe.
I believed most of the reasons why so many people are going there is to experience the fun and entertainment during the duration of the celebration. More that, since it is a beer festival, tasting and drinking beers that are only brewed by the best breweries in Munich is also one of the reasons why many guests and tourists are flocking this event every year.
Of course, you must not miss the live bands in every beer tent. There are live musicians playing great musical instruments. If you understand what is bit depth, I know you will have fun listening to the live bands there. This is one thing I love everytime I visit a German festival.
If you are in Bavaria especially in Munich area, never miss the fun visiting the world's largest festival. I guess, I am a lucky traveler visiting Oktoberfest many times. Cheers and be safe!

Hello folks! Wow, it seems that I was away again for sometime. This is the busy life that I have now. I wish, I can turn back the time when I have a lot of time, everytime and anytime of the day! lol!
How was your first week of the month? I hope everything is going great. So far, so good for me and I am thankful about it. I believed it is time to have fun again. Although I really have a busy life, I also find time to entertain myself.
I just don't want to stay at home when I have day off. We need something that will deviate us from our day to day job. Anything that make us happy like go walking, on a day trip, visiting a festival, watch a movie, go to the disco, or simply spend time with family and friends.
This is also the reason why I am planning to visit again this festival that I always love to see. The Tillyfest in Breitenbrunn is held every year in September. This festival is already a part of the culture and tradition in the town. This is a festival that commemorates the history during the 30 years war in Breitenbrunn during the Middle Age. It was named after Grafen Tilly who visited first the area in 1624.
The highlight of the festival is the parade that takes place on Sunday during the weekend. You can see a lot of participants, performers including musicians with their colorful festival costumes and decors. For now, it is said to be visited by over 12,000 people near and far.
Breitenbrunn is municipality located in the district of Neumarkt in Bavaria in Germany.
