If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’d know that I literally just came home from my month-long Europe adventure late last night (August 6th, 2017).  What did I do today, my first day back?  I sauntered to the Folklorama office, got my media passes one day into the festival, and already visited three pavilions!  What is this “jetlag” that you speak of? 😉

In all seriousness, when you love exploring and learning about culture, you’re not bummed out to end your vacation abroad to appreciate and love the culture, hospitality, and talent of your city.

Judi Meets Folklorama!

As always, my goal is to visit every single pavilion for 2017, just like I managed to do in 2015.  Last year, I had to go on a trip and also had to give up my shared passes as part of a collaboration.  This year, I have my very own official pass for the blog.  I’ve made my schedule, and it’s totally doable, even after losing Sunday of Week 1!

It’s going to be a hectic two weeks, but wish me luck!
