I was lucky enough to see all of the bands above, plus a lot more. The only band I was really hoping to see in Germany was the Whitest Boy Alive, but despite not seeing them I came away having seen 20-30+ bands. I’d like to think I got my money’s worth, even if i wont be going to Bumbershoot, MFNW or my cousin’s neighbors grad party..

It was a lot of fun. Surprising good food. Great Friends. Great Music. But the whole weekend I just wanted to get to the airport. I’ll put up some German perspective photos from Katharina.

it is late and i’m melting, i’m home but i’ve been here

..for almost two weeks now and i haven’t really touched this. I had thought that my return would mean, simply, the end of my blog foray. However, there are still a lot of pictures from the trip which i have not uploaded, jokes that i haven’t butchered and people i haven’t thanked. no promises, by any means, that it will get done soon, if at all, but know i’ve at least contemplated it.

And with that:

so, my last update whilst in Germany, naturally so it is about Austria.

I’ll make sure to do a few sentimental thing-a-ma-bobs when I get back to the states, but just know that this trip has been better than I could have imagined.

Tübingen (approx. 4 months) – Stuttgart (approx. 10 minutes) – Paris (approx. 1 hour) – London (approx. 5 days) – Mur’kah (undecided)

Wegen Wien (teil 1)

I was asked over 2 months ago by my friend Lari if I would be interested in going to see Liverpool play, in Vienna. I am pretty sure I blurtted, “yeah!” before she could even finish asking. She later told me when where how etc. and after when where and how arrived we went to Vienna last weekend.

We went to museums, saw the sights, ate great food, watched Brüno in Austria (in English!) and went to the friendly between Liverpool and SK Wien.
