Hello August! Yesterday was a holiday here in Switzerland, known as Swiss National Day aka Switzerland’s version of the 4th of July. To celebrate Switzerland’s 727th birthday, we enjoyed fireworks across Zurich and a picnic by the lake. We’ve been in a major heatwave here in Europe, with temps reaching well over 37C (~99F for my US followers), so our favorite thing to do to beat the heat is to float down the Limmat River that’s just steps from my flat. I’ll be off later this month to do a roadtrip through Austria and to the Dolomites, but in the meantime I have weekend plans to do some camping and hiking in the local mountains – one of my favorite things to do in Switzerland.
To bring in August, I’ve put together some of my favorite songs at the moment into one big August music playlist on Spotify. For this month, there’s a lot of chill electronic music and other great songs that I feel really compliment the mood of summer. On this playlist you can find music from Childish Gambino, Trinix, Crooked Colors, Alex Lustig and my recent favorite Feki. If you haven’t heard Feki‘s music, be sure to give it a listen!
And if you missed last month’s playlist, you can find it here.
