I’m always checking out posters and brochures while travelling as it’s a great way to find those one-of-a-kind events that aren’t in the the regular travel event listings.
I saw this poster for a photo festival at Knokke-Heist in Belgium. (More on Off to a photo exhibition at Knokke-Heist on the Belgian Coast.)
We also saw a fascinating photo festival in Siem Reap in Cambodia. I don’t have the brochure, but as above, the photos were set up in places all over town, and at times the venues were as interesting as the photos. These water-related photos were under pools in a courtyard, held down by stones while fish swam above them.
A Gran Jaripeo Baile in Ajijic, Mexico. By this point Al had a digital camera, and I made him take a photo of the poster so we could zoom in and check out the details. This was an extremely memorable event that all the norteamericanos living in Ajijic knew nothing about.
A World Sufi Music Festival poster seen while at Jaipur’s famous Elephant Festival, and one of the most magical events I’ve ever been to.
Talking to locals is another way of finding out events. This WW2 exhibit in Rotterdam contrasted the experiences of the Dutch and the Germans, and we only found out about it via our Air B&B hosts.
