Creux du Van

A long weekend with a lot of stuff to do! Besides loads of schoolwork, my parents, a good friend and I went hiking to Creux du Van. We took an early train on Friday, first to Zürich to pick my friend up and then via Neuchâtel to Noiraigue. It's a really tiny but pretty village in the Jura, the mountains in the north of Switzerland.

There we started our hike, and we were not alone! Many others also walked up that mountain to see the spectacular view! It's a natural wonder, The Creux du Van is a natural rocky cirque. Many years ago it was created by natural water erosion from a local glacier and still looks magnificent!

I need to add that it was also the perfect place to take pictures with my drone! My friend also had a drone with him,  and we filmed a lot. I've still got some editing to do, but I'm sure that the video will be awesome :D

Dronin' around school!

I was asked by the school if I could take some more drone pictures. Of course I'd do that :)
So this wednesday on my free afternoon I took some pictures after I visited my friends from my internship at the university in Zürich which was really nice too!

I also took some cool pictures of the cool clouds today, it looked so cool! The immense contrast between those clouds and the bright, enlighted landscape was so lovely!

We also had a lovely barbecue with some friends one evening where we talked a lot, ate grilled marshmellows and had a really good time :D

Summer is coming!

After this stressful time in the past couple weeks, we finally had exams again. But at least the weather got really nice and warm this week. There was still a lot of rain and thunderstorms, but at least it gave me the opportunity to take some lovely pictures of the clouds!

I apologise for this post being so short, but there wasn't a lot happening this week.
But my friend and I worked a lot on our album which we are going to release sooner or later, once it's finished..

Monteverdi Concerts

The last week was so strenuous! Nearly every day we had many rehearsals, even until late at night. But it was totally worth the effort, because the concerts we had yesterday and the day before yesterday were amazing!
It was such a pleasure to finally perform the whole piece and to see the reactions of the listeners. One of my favourite moments was when one soloist went to the back of the hall and began singing there, every single head in the audience turned around trying to figure out where the sound was coming from.

It was a pleasure to sing Monteverdi, but now, after the many times we sung it, I am glad that we can move on to something else :)
