7.000 km Road Trip Through 8 Countries

The sum­mer of 2016 was a blast­ing one for us — with many adven­tures on our big Europe road trip!  I was hap­py to get the car and hit the road, now that I had my dri­ving license (passed the exam 2 weeks before the trip). Luck­i­ly my dad had the guts to give me his car, haha. So now we had this spa­cious Ford Galaxy for our jour­ney. Me, my oth­er half and a friend were ready and high­ly moti­vat­ed for the adven­ture.

We start­ed our road trip from Vien­na and hit the direc­tion Mas­ters of Pup­pets Fes­ti­val in Czech Repub­lic. The first fes­ti­val for the sum­mer and we enjoyed it a lot I have to say! A real­ly nice gath­er­ing with killer music in a mag­i­cal place. It was the per­fect start into a fes­ti­val sum­mer.

Loved it so much that the Milky Way was vis­i­ble each night! Catch­es me every time for hours …

After the Fes­ti­val we orig­i­nal­ly planned to go to see Berlin before the next fes­ti­val was about to start but we had to return to Vien­na because our car had no more bat­tery … We man­aged to make it run but it still didn’t work prop­er­ly because we had to steal our own car :))) The bat­tery was that emp­ty that the engine didn’t rec­og­nize the car keys any­more …

So we returned to Vien­na, checked the car again, washed our clothes and left again — this time to the Fre­qs of Nature Fes­ti­val near Berlin.

This fes­ti­val had for sure the best dec­o­ra­tion I’ve seen so far! It was some­thing total­ly dif­fer­ent than dec­o­ra­tions at oth­er fes­ti­vals of that kind. Real­ly, real­ly mag­nif­i­cent.

We ate a lot on that fes­ti­val :))) Had some real­ly deli­cious food and PANCAKES!

From Berlin we left to Barcelona — loooong way ahead! We made two stops in France before we reached the 3rd fes­ti­val — Kali Mela near Barcelona. Our friends had an crazy inci­dent with their car that was on the way with us to the fes­ti­val and they had to leave the car in France … Even if our car was big, it was so full that we didn’t had room for 3 more peo­ple so they came by train to the fes­ti­val one day lat­er …)

We con­tin­ued our jour­ney and after 2 days on the road we final­ly reached the area in the mid­dle of lit­er­al­ly NOWHERE, where the Fes­ti­val took place. We got there by night — a very cold and stormy one! Expect­ed oth­er weath­er con­di­tions for Spain but they showed up on the next day … from then on it was pret­ty hot and  dusty all the time — we all had prob­lems with our throat and I even lost my voice for some days … at least we had a lot to laugh about, as my voice sound­ed way too fun­ny :)))

Kali Mela was a crazy Fes­ti­val. Strong ener­gies and many dif­fer­ent peo­ple around. It was an awe­some time with the tribe and the music was killer, killer!

After Kali Mela we spent 1 week on a camp­ing spot near Barcelona. From there we drove every day to the city by train. We didn’t want to take the car because traf­fic in Barcelona is insane! We also heard about the many break-ins into cars with for­eign num­ber plates so we didn’t want to take the risk, as I made the expe­ri­ence in Tener­ife. The car was safe in the camp­ing!

It was my first time in Barcelona, final­ly! I want­ed to see this amaz­ing city for so long … and it total­ly didn’t dis­ap­point me. It is even bet­ter than I thought. I fell in love with Barcelona even before being there. The vibes of this city and the peo­ple are just awe­some.

Well, luck­i­ly we didn’t had any neg­a­tive expe­ri­ence. There was just one case in the metro that two guys tried to steal some­thing from our bags — they didn’t real­ly came that far because we were hold­ing our bags in front of us and I was watch­ing the guys because I real­ized what they are try­ing to do …

If you are in Barcelona always keep an eye on your things and don’t leave them unob­served.

Sleep­ing place on the road from Barcelona to Hun­gary — some­where in France.

There we are — we final­ly reached PARADISE! After one week in Barcelona we hur­ried to the next fes­ti­val which was about to start — OZORA. This time the road didn’t take that much because we were 3 dri­vers, dri­ving with almost no break.

We con­vinced our friends to join us! We offered to pick them up in Vien­na and take them to the fes­ti­val. They were a lot into our idea, they had only one ‘prob­lem’: no mon­ey for the tick­ets, which were 130 € each. Too good it didn’t stop them. Ask­ing for dona­tions and giv­ing cook­ies in return was a good idea — after cou­ple of hours they had the mon­ey for 2 tick­ets! And a lot of coins … coins, coins :))))

OZORA was the last fes­ti­val for the sum­mer for me. It was so much fun. I like this fes­ti­val a lot because of it’s wide range of activ­i­ties and the diver­si­ty of peo­ple com­ing from all around the globe. Such a col­or­ful, crazy tribe.

I was also very hap­py to see and dance with friends from Tener­ife again. Real­ly nice bunch of broth­ers and sis­ters we’ve been around there. Hav­ing a great time and con­nect­ing with beau­ti­ful souls.

On the last day of the fes­ti­val my love­ly par­ents came to the Fes­ti­val to take me on a trip. We head­ed to the Black Sea in Roma­nia. The last time I was there was when I was at the age of 4. So I was real­ly excit­ed to see this area again.

After the crazy road trips and many fes­ti­vals I was so hap­py to have the pos­si­bil­i­ty to come down and chill my soul on the beach. And I need­ed it so much — I was sleep­ing for days when we arrived. It was the per­fect retreat to charge my bat­ter­ies. Ah, how I love the sea, the beach life and vibes ∞ …

Vama Veche’ the last beach before the Bul­gar­i­an bor­der with col­or­ful peo­ple and par­ty non stop. You got­ta expe­ri­ence it for your­self! 😀

After one week at the beach my crazy road trip came to an end! After 3 months of adven­tures and new places … back to Vien­na, try­ing to arrive ‘home’ again.

Got the next des­ti­na­tions already in my head … :)))

Hope you had a super nice sum­mer and enjoyed every moment of it! 🙂

 

Bless­ings, Love & Peace, A.
