Taking A Day Trip To The WOMAD Festival In Cáceres
WOMAD, World of Music, Arts, and Dance, is truly an international festival featuring musicians from all around the globe. Starting in England in 1982, it’s been held in 27 countries anywhere from Turkey to South Africa to Finland. We learned all about it while looking into which summer festivals we should prioritize in Spain this year. Thinking we weren’t going to be able to attend WOMAD due to our complete lack of planning ahead, we resolved ourselves to a quiet, festival-less weekend at home listening to the horrendous reverberations of what we claim to be a ‘music library’ in our iTunes. Think Glee soundtracks and auto-tuned Top 40 artists. You see, Auston and I are not music connoisseurs by any means. So we need these music festivals to broaden our selections.
A Musical (Euro)Vision of Europe and More (or Less)
Let’s face it. We’re all addicted to singing show competitions. They rampage our television sets and though we may proclaim to loathe them, we secretly catch an episode or two under the guise that nothing better is on. Well these twobadtourists are excited to be living in Spain this year for one of the biggest European song competitions. The 58th annual Eurovision Song Contest has 39 countries participating hoping to have their submitted song voted as this year’s best. Our guest Jeff, a digital media professional and more importantly a fellow fan of Eurovision, shares this article with us about former and current Eurovision venues as your European destination. Enjoy!
We Will Rock You: A London Musical
I begged and pleaded with Auston to take me to a musical while in London. Once I proved to him that we could do it affordably, he allowed me to purchase the cheapest tickets I could find. Thus, our date night to see We Will Rock You. We didn’t know what to expect but surprisingly enjoyed it. Cheesy, but it made us laugh. Talented enough to make us sing along.
