The sky may have been cloudy and threatening rain, but the Live Art Market in Remagen carried on!
More than 200 artists from all over Europe transformed the streets of the historic town of Remagen into a living art gallery.
Breakfast powered me through the day, allowing me to manage the crowds and take in all the sights, smells, and sounds of the LebensKunstMarkt.
Wheat toast with almond butter and a fruit salad topped with poppy seed marzipan yogurt.
Fresh blueberries, strawberries, cherries and the most delicious yogurt.
Part of the market was organized by geographical regions.
For example, the French region included soaps, breads, cheese, salami, and hand-painted pottery
Not the best photo of their products, but I loved the patchwork flags so much that I bought a hunk of fresh goat’s cheese from this stand.
How cute is this apron?
Could have spent a month’s salary on ribbon at this stall.
I bought a pot of cilantro and rosemary for the balcony garden.
I spotted one of my colleagues and her husband along the Rhine. They are such a cute couple.
This waffle was as good as it looks.
This church reminded me of Hogwarts from Harry Potter.
I had a great time at the market, ate tons of free samples, oohed and ahhed over a bajillion pieces of jewelry and artwork, and generally enjoyed the day out.
Although I’m sad to be away from my family on Father’s Day, I’m so glad to be living in this beautiful part of the world!
Here’s one last Father’s Day photo. I love you, Dad!
Proud parents at my graduation.
