For many years now I’ve been a member of the theatre group The Hamburg Players, and for even more years, the Hamburg Players have participated regularly in the annual theatre festival FEATS. No different this year. I was home from South America just in time to go to Antwerp, where the festival took place this year. How could I have said no

How to best spend a weekend in Edinburgh

A day in Furth im Wald or: Meeting the Bavarian Dragon

Nele/ August 23, 2016/ Destinations, Europe/ 1 comments
