Seaside travel // waiting for summer

Another post I forgot to post. Better late than never:)

Summer is almost over, but we started traveling in may and ending it in September, so it’s cool, we still got time to chill. I’ve been going to the Bulgarian seaside; it’s more empty and wild than the Romanian one. Also good for wild camping, with forests, large empty beaches, beautiful country roads, fields that go on forever and an emptiness that soothes the soul.

We usually stay in Krapets and from there you can take your bike and just go for miles and miles. Last time we went from Krapets to Ezeretzs, taking the not so traveled country roads, between pine forests and sunflower fields, stopped on the beach in Ezeretz, than moved on to Shabla, a comunist seaside resort, funny and sunny, lots of contrast there too… Ezeretz is a village, with fruits and small roads, stone houses and beehives. The smell reminded me of the place i grew up in, in the country side, middle of Romania; summer smells the same everywhere. Like hot animal loo, fruits and the thirsty earth.

Then you can go on from Shabla to Tyulenovo, on a nice road…the only thing here is that we met some dogs on the way and was a little difficult to get pass them. After…my bike broke…so we had to do 35 km with a broken bike, in the dark, on a main road, was quite freaky but we made it home in the end. alive. trembling, but alive. Lucky me, Andreea gave me her good trek bike and she struggled with mine, as i was already on a breaking point.

In may we were in Greece, also biking  a lot on our magic island. This we’re planning to do again in a couple of weeks, so…will be continued.

 

Waha Lounge @ street delivery 2016

I’ve been taking long breaks from this blog. I want to write more, maybe on daily basis, but I need exercise and clarity. So wish me luck, I hope it will happen at least weekly in the beginning.

So remembering summer…another yearly project that I love and enjoy making. It’s the Waha Lounge @ Street delivery festival. Street Delivery is an urban festival in Bucharest, one that draws attention to the public life of the city, trying to make the people come together and use the streets for learning, playing, creating small communities. The community feeling is quite lost in the big cities, and in Bucharest is getting lost also. So this festival is making something concrete. It closes one street in the center of the city, for cars, and opens it for people and their activities.

Everybody wants to be there. In the first years, cause I’ve been participating since it started, it was more money oriented, but in the last years something changed and the whole gathering took a nice artsy turn.

My friends that are making the Waha festival, one lovely festival in the Romanian mountains, wanted to be present again this year with a forestry lounge, to let people know about the location and line up of the festival. The challenge is to cover more than 200 square meters in only a couple of hours, as the  street starts closing only that morning.

And of course, trying to use the old walls and fences and everything there is around. After we finished, we met a really nice Norwegian writer, by accident, and also by accident he told us he came to Romania especially to go to Waha Festival. So good energies attract good people. It was a nice preview for the summer festival, where we ended up in July, but that is another story.
