It’s Spring. It may be taking a while to crawl in, but the desire is there to celebrate. And that means festivals. All around the upper hemisphere we are screaming time for a break from the winter. So what’s your flavor in a festival?
Festivals are huge in Europe. The university students explode just like in the US, running off to Spring Break. It’s much the same, full on rave for some. The festivals have gotten bigger and more media intense, and getting there and back can take days. And you thought Burning Man was intense here. Whatever size or flavor, there will be one in some Euro city you visit. Hey, the bird are chirping.
