What am I getting myself into?
I have bought tickets to go to Rock Werchter in Belgium in early July. This will be my first time to a huge rock festival, but better late than never, hey? I am slightly apprehensive about the whole idea, but at the moment I'm mostly excited, esp since the person I'm going with has infectious enthusiasm. I'm going with someone from work, who asked me about a week ago if I'd be interested. After bouncing the idea around in my head, I was sold after reading the glowing description of the festival on their website and seeing the excellent lineup that has tons of bands I'm looking forward to seeing, including: REM, Radiohead, Ben Folds, My Morning Jacket, Gossip, John Butler Trio, The Raconteurs, Beck, deus, and Grinderman.
There's a lot there to be excited about. The worrywart in me though thinks about heavy rain and high heat, sleeping for 4 nights in a tent surrounded by thousands of other people, long lines for the toilets, dodgy food, and possibly getting very tired of the person I'm going with. But for now my excitement outweighs my worries. And it's only just over a month away!
In the meantime, I should be looking forward to going to Mallorca on Saturday much more than I am. I can't quite grasp that I really am going on a trip soon, I don't know why, but I'm sure by the time I'm done packing on Friday it will seem more real. Hopefully stories and possibly photos when I get back.
