Below are a few impressions of my August-October autumnal adventures - inline skating, highland hiking, forest walking, mushroom hunting, moon howling, online classing, pumpkin souping, airline traveling.. And also a bit of dance <3
August through October (we'll be going for another round or two today, it's a beautiful fall day!) are for inline skating with Mr E at Eschweiler's Blausteinsee
September 12-19th - Pictures of our hiking (and boating!) adventures on Isle of Skye
Right after that - Back to more online class recordings (aka the Shimmy Sessions!) at Chandra's beautiful home studio in Stein, the Netherlands
September 28th - Watching the full super blood moon eclipse in the fields of hometown Eschweiler
October was for mushroom hunting in beautiful Aachener wald (we found some porchini and chestnut bolete, yum.)
My first attempt at soup-cooking (adventure!) happened this October as well: Thai pumpkin soup with ginger, pepper and shallots, mmm..
24-26th October - Gathering lovely dance memories at the 15th edition of Celebrating Dance in Torquay, UK - aka The English riviera
Then finally flying back home just in time for..
October 31st - Halloween party time (also a first for me!) at Luna Llena's lovely 'Pumpkins and Shimmies' event in Diepenbeek, BE (See FB for the hafla and group pictures) <3
In November it was time for more practice at our regular class studio (we'll have new Tuesday Training sessions there too!) in Würselen, DE - With notebook and camera at the ready
Nov 6-8th I was lucky enough to visit Leila of Serbia's 'Oriental Love' festival in Belgrade - a fantastic experience, inspirational on so many levels.
And last but not least I got to be part of Fédra's 'FDBD' dance celebration in Brussels, BE this weekend, performing a wings duet with the hostess <3
