Solstice weekend feasting

My hun turned 30 this weekend and together with the summer solstice we spend two lovely days with friends and family and lot's of food!

I would have loved to have a fire outside for the solstice but we we're so exhausted and it was raining~ so I decided to light some candles instead and spend the night relaxing and pondering on the sofa. Small offerings were made in the morning though :)

Historische Stadtrechtsfeier Gelnhausen or: Another medieval market

Every 5 years the beautiful city of Gelnhausen is holding a big medieval 3-day event. 
The historical core of the city is very pretty and during the event flooded with merchants and people showing old handicrafts and stuff. It really is a beautiful setting!

Sadly, this time they had no knights turney, which they had at the past two events 2010 and 2005~ but it was pretty as always. And again I took just a few pictures with my mobile cam since I again forgot my camera -.-

Oh and of couse here is our small treasure haul ;)

Adventures on horseback

Six hours in the saddle! Gods~ it has been a long time since I last rode a horse that long...  but it was totally worth the pain and the enormous sunburn I got :3

We started on Thorsday 4th at 9:30 in the morning with 11 riders and travelled about 15km to Krombach were a Sternritt - a kind of smaller trail ride were lot's of riders from more or less around the area gather. Often horse blessings are held, food and drinks are served and sometimes clinics held etc. - took place.

We had some food and sat together for a while before riding back home.
The way home was really hard! It was freaking warm, the sun was burning without mercy and my butt hurt like hell XD I do have a horrible muscle ache and my walk the day after should make John Wayne proud! I'm pretty sure Urmel and I slept well that night! Love the stubborn pony [heart]

Also the sun was burning intensely that day and I got the sunburn of my lifetime D:
I'm pretty sure there'll be a  lot of skin coming off... yuck...

THAT,  my dear readers, is what happen if you are such a pale ghoul like me and don't manage to use suncream properly for once... -.- The photo was taken today~ 6 days after I got the burn!
