Europe » Portugal » Northern » Porto February 28th 2007

I have just arrived at Porto's airport. Little depressive feeling. Bring so many things inside me and feel so sad and empty at the same time. Feels as when you walk forward, thinking you have droped something somewhere and you keep looking behind afraid you missed something on the way. I don't know what it is...just loss. ( Xutos&Pontapes - homem do leme - "... a vida é sempre a perder..." ) Life was shown to me in the most beautiful way. I had never seen it so true and colorful. Never had so many great people sharing it with me ( and this is what i am most thankful for...)....................................................................................................................... ................................................................................................................................................ i could die right now.... read more

"It takes two to dance tango" popular expression, means you can't just do it on your own you can't have real fun on your own you can't realize things on your own you can't be helped on your own you can't make friends on your own you can't love on your own you can't live on your own... you can't grow beautiful things on your own. you can grow potatoes on your own... =/ though would be easier if you ask someone to help you dig the ground so here are some people who helped me grow my potatoes in this journey: VISION was one of my most incredible experiences Riku Seppala (thanks for beeing such a great host.

Europe » Poland » Masovia » Warsaw February 21st 2007

Today me and April split roads. She left warszawa in the morning, in direction to Berlin. I am sad and it is a beautiful morning. I leave for a walk in the city.........Verve Drugs don't work Warszawa feels weird...there is some story untold. It was completley destroyed about 50 years ago - now it is shiny and new. I wander looking for blood and scars. I left in the evening , by train, to Poznan. Dziekuje Kasia, for your hospitality to me&april and Mateuz, you were the best ( this guy even walked me to the station to say goodbye!) Many Dziekuje to both of you... read more

Europe » Lithuania » Vilnius February 19th 2007

Yesterday was a rough (and crazy amazing) day on the road and the whole journay lasted for 12 hours. Serious problems getting out of Lithuania's capital.Caught the tram to get out of the city. Hard to find good hitching position...Long wait, no ride. April had her leg hurting really bad. But she's a tuff girl...after some painfull 30 minute walk to the highway's gas station we could get a ride to Alytos in a sportive car ( here a lot of people TUNE their cars.but they don't look crazy as in Portugal... ) . We needed to get to Ladzije, near the Polish/Lithuanian border. This fat guy, Danijlo, drove us 3 km down that road and stoped at a bus station in the middle of nowhere. Silence and peacefull white again... it is getting dark. Here ... read more

arrived in the night...again. after some trouble we managed to find a "hostel". it was a students residence,that worked as a hostel during the summer!the recepcionist didnt speak english at all ( that happens quite a lot in here...i usually find it funny not to understand a word of what foreign people are saying. but this recepcionist lady wasnt being so receptive... ) , she was about to kick us out when too students came to the rescue - ENGLISH SPEAKING LATVIAN GIRLS!!somehow they could convince the lady. thats how we met Ruta ( sorry if i spelled it incorrectly...). She was surprisingly nice and showed us everything and made us feel at home...then we met Laura, another amazing girl, at her room. I borrowed her guitar and tryied to play something that Ruta would apreciate ... read more
