Bree and home!

We finished the tour with a private, invitation only, performance in Bree, Belgium, that was organized by our old friend Jan Schonkeren. It was another great evening. The small theater was full.  

Thank you, Jan!

De Woonboot

We played last night in De Woonboot van Nelis en Leentje. Woonboot means houseboat, but thankfully it wasn't really a boat! We were worried.

It was a large restaurant and music venue. There were about 80 people, all very attentive…

Turbenthal and adios to Switzerland

We drove without any traffic problems from Waldkraiburg to Turbenthal. The border crossings were uneventful, a good thing. 

The gasthaus Tulpenbaum is in Feubrunn, just 5 km from Turbenthal. It's beautiful, set on a farm. I have photos in Euro…

Waldkraiburg, Yes!

Longer drive, not too bad, easy border crossings into Austria and Germany.  

Amazing, warm, audience in the small Bistro inside the Kultur Haus.  So rewarding to play.

Olten, Frutigen, and Pieterlen

It's been a whirlwind three days. From Laupen we drove to Olten. Martin, the promoter, found a new venue, the Shauraum, that we inaugurated. It's a cafe rather than a theater, but Martin set up a really good sound system…

Laupen wonderful!

We left Sumiswald about 1P and got in the Hotel Baeren in Laupen about 2:30.  

Yes, another hotel Baeren. Animals are big for hotel names in Switzerland. They are mostly Baeren (bears), Hirschen (deers), Loewen (lions), or Adler (eagle)…

We left the Seminar hotel above the lake in Filzbach about 12:10 and drove to Sumiswald.  (See the photos in Euro Tour 2016).

Our GPS got confused driving through Muhlehorn because the streets go underneath each other and it didn't…
