    Solothurn, Switzerland

    February 12 in Switzerland

    Before leaving Switzerland and starting our journey to South America, Whit and I returned to Aarau to stay with my uncle Tom and his partner Pia. While we were in Aarau, there was an annual week-long festival taking place in Solothurn, the closest city to my mum's childhood home. The premise of this festival is to scare the winter spirits away and obviously, we had to get in on the action.

    To start the celebratory week off, we awoke at 3am, adorned our white robes, white hats, and red scarves, and made our way to Solothurn to participate in Cheslette which started at 5am. Here, over one thousand people all dressed in the same attire, made as much noise as possible, banging pot lids, shaking tin cans filled with stones, and cracking large whips in the air, while parading the city streets. The cacophony is seriously alarming and if I were a winter spirit, I'd probably bugger off too. After completing the parade route, everyone settles down to eat a traditional flour soup before bar hopping and getting progressively more intoxicated. The morning ends at lunch time and most sane revelers head to bed before the evening events kick off (some people clearly didn't get this message and trooped on all day).

    About three days after Cheslette, Tom, Whit, and I braved the bleak Swiss weather and returned to Solothurn to watch the carnival parade. There were about 40 themed groups marching the city. Some of the floats created for the festival were seriously impressive. Most floats had confetti guns and often some poor unexpecting bystander would get a face full of paper to improve their mood. It was clear to me and Whit that the Swiss people take their traditions very seriously and if you ever have a chance to participate in such an event you won't be disappointed!

    Dear all of you
    I am traveling now since 3 month and already had lots lots of beautiful experiences.
    The live I am living is amazing i never felt so free and filled with wonder. Sometimes it just feels like I am in a big beautiful dream.
    Of course there are also bad experiences but that is life. Bad situation are important for me too so I have not any reason to complain myself!
    The only thing which bothers me is that I want to show you everything and I wish to kind of let you feel what I feel..
    So I had the idea to start a blog and to share my special live with you. I didn't know in which language I should write. German? French? No! I want all of my people understand it, so it will be in my basic english, hihi.
    I hope you'll have fun to read and look at my pictures and that I can send you a bit of my happiness to you. 🌞

    September 5, 2016 in Switzerland

    Schnell an dem Straßenrand und erstmal das Handbuch gecheckt. Lutz meinte, dass ne gelbe Lampe nicht schlimm ist . Also erst mal wieder weiter fahren und sich erst drum kümmern, wenn die Lampe rot leuchtet :P schließlich halten wir hier nur den Verkehr einschließlich Bus auf!

    Solothurn Schweiz

    September 5, 2015 in Switzerland

    Nun wird es aber Zeit auch die Kantonsstadt des Kanton Soluthurn kennen zu lernen. Nach dem Mittagessen geht es deshalb los. Es ist eine sehr schöne Stadt wo man viel sehen und erleben kann. An diesem Tag trafen sich gerade einige Studentenschaften in ihren unterschiedlichen Kleidungen.

    ... in Solothurn

    September 5, 2015 in Switzerland

    Und dann dachte ich ,ich sehe nicht richtig, da stehen auf den Stufen der Sankt Ursenkathedrale doch tatsächlich Alphornbläser und musizieren. Wir sind hin und weg und bleiben stehen und lauschen den Klängen. als sie fertig sind, kommen wir noch kurz mit Ihnen ins Gespräch. Die Musiker kamen nicht nur aus der Schweiz sondern auch aus Deutschland.
