We’re back! And while we were off exploring exotic, hidden away gems in the Berkshires, the season for festivals and celebrations swung into high gear.

This weekend brings Bastille Day, and it’s not just a Paris phenomenon any longer.

In Australia, they’re racing camels and ships made from beer cans. (Not against one another, although that could make for an interesting race...)

Every four years, couples travel to Essex for the Dunmow Flitch Trials. If you’re happily married, or can convince a jury of it, you could win a side of bacon!

Meanwhile, in Pamplona, the bulls are running through the streets.

And here in my hometown, the world has come to Cincinnati for the World Choir Games. Parades through the streets and lots of music everywhere!
