3 COUNTRIES IN 10 DAYS
FIRST DAYS / FIRST EXPERIENCES
We met at the airport and only then I realised that we are actually traveling to a different city. It was pretty funny but I took that as a very exciting start. We sat on the plane and prepared ourselves for difficulties and hot weather. We also met a very interesting old man that made our flight much quicker and remarkable. We had a really nice chat with him and he even gave us his address if we decide to come and visit him and his family for a few days. We thought that it was very nice of him but we’d already had people waiting for us, so due to that we thanked him, wished him good luck and told him that maybe someday in the future we will meet him again. As soon as we arrived to Dortmund we bought a map from the gas station and tried to hitch-hike on the auto band which was not the best idea, but we didn’t give up and after 25 minutes or something someone decided to take us to the place where people usually stop and make calls or have lunch. This is were we found our heroes that decided to take us straight to the Bremen. Even though their car was fulfilled they were so kind to us that it didn’t seem like a big deal to them! The ride was about 3 hours long so after some talking and filming we decided to take a nap on each others shoulders. Finally we reached our very first destination – BREMEN. It was such a magnificent city, and we started our exploration by getting lost, taking the wrong bus, being hell knows where and meeting a friendly bus driver that was keen enough to help us, oh well you know, those foreigners. Haha, no, it took us a second to fall in love with that city. We spent 2 nights there, we used to get up early, drink mint tea from my cousin’s garden outside, eat breakfast and start our day with our eyes wide opened and caught breaths.
We spent three amazing days there driving bikes and taking loads of pictures, writing and talking about literature, watching people, dancing while listening to the street musicians, humming, laughing, running, drinking wine and feeling alive. I think I am the happiest when I make art and travel. Our host was really friendly to us, he owns an art studio and a restaurant, so we had a really nice and interesting discussion with him about life and art, the idea of having his own restaurant came from having a big passion for cooking. So one day we even had the opportunity to cook together. I also got myself prepared for anything by buying loads of films for my film camera. It is quite strange at the same time because we hardly got tired, i was so excited through the whole journey and didn’t want to waist even a second of it!
