unfinished pavillon near Orșova
How is it that we just turn a corner and everything is right? The flow started exactly then.
That morning we got out of bed on the other side. We cleaned up the ivory tower and left it behind, feeling awake and energized all of a sudden. I steered the Renault onto the road that would eventually bring us back home. 2000 km...

I see pictures.
space-time-energy-lines movement magnetism obsession being-drawn-to vibrance detachedness feet-on-the-ground-head-above-the-clouds and a hint of a possible story.

...about the Trip:
We slept the last four days in four different countries; all in all we crossed 8 countries during 3500km. This all to spend 3 days in Greece, making our own olive oil. Plus another 4 days
sitting at the Greek seaside, impatiently watching our boredom grow and things getting stuck.
When we finally decided to hit the road a few days early things started rolling again.
And not just a little bit!
