Classical Music Travelers

Classical Music + Travel = Happy Life

Music Travel Itinerary - Schleswig-Holstein, Germany - July 2016

I almost always travel alone but this one was different. My friend B and her family in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany invited me to come.

It was such a wonderful trip!! I loved the people, music, food and everything I had during my stay. I’m sure I will be there again!

The festival concerts are held in many different places across the region. Every place is unique and interesting but it is not easy for travelers who do not drive to go there. I was lucky. My friend drove me to the concert venues and she went to the concerts with me. I can't say "thank you" enough to her; she really made me happy many times.
