Black Forest Festival, Aug 2018

How could we resist going to the Black Forest Festival since it’s literally right up the street from our place? So happy Roxanne, Andrew and Jeffrey joined us. We got there early so we got to the pancake breakfast before the big crowds and got an excellent parking spot. Check out the last picture to get an idea of how important a good parking spot was!

I feel like I’m in a Harry Potter movie! has done something incredible: They have recreated the ambient sounds from Harry Potter movies. Now you can feel like you are in the Great Hall, the Gryffindor Common Room or any of the other houses. Wanna ride the Hogwarts Express? The sounds are there. It’s pretty cool how the sounds are an actual mix of multiple sounds that you can actually control individually.


There’s a bunch of non-HP movie mixes too like Sherlock’s apartment (aka 221b Baker Street) and Loki’s Chambers. Of course there are Star Wars and Game of Thrones sounds. The site has tons of other mixes grouped into categories like At Home, Cats, Environmental, Games, Holidays, Human, Movies and Series, Music, Nature, etc. Something for everyone.

This stuff is great for when you are at work and just need some background noise. The sounds loop so they can eventually get monotonous, but you can just click off to another place haha! Check it out! The only bummer is that the site is Flash-based so you’ll have to visit on a computer :-(
