In August, Husband and I made our way to Bregenz, Austria for a night to attend the opera Turandot. Last year he had seen the outdoor theater, constructed on Lake Constance, and ever since was determined to go. We somehow managed to make the very last showing of the 2-year performance and it did not rain. I snuggled with my theater blanket and amusedly pieced together some of the plot between the Italian singing and the German subtitles.
Afterward, Husband rattled off the operas he was interested in seeing… I, being exceptionally cultured, replied, “I really want to see Lion King the Musical.”
But France was fabulous. Annecy immediately captured my heart with its stunning lake and rising mountains. We rented a peddle boat and took turns hopping out to swim in what is said to be Europe’s cleanest lake. It was incredible—and such a relief because it was hot.
