In order not to have too many blogs, I mean - I have three already, and also in order to promote this one, I’ll use it for my travel diaries. Enjoy…
Do you know the special travelmode one can get in to? This feeling of reality loosening a bit up, getting broader somehow. Things that would be strange in your own country, or things you wouldn’t even notice because it would be too far away from your normal perception, suddenly get’s it’s place in your world, and you wonder how a reality suddenly can change that drastic, only because you crossed some stupid borders.
I get this feeling every time I travel, and strong it came to me when I first arrived in Berlin this July. Having bin incredibly busy this spring, I had prosponed all decisions concerning travels, but the vacuum of the after-event made me look for my spontanious I, and I found it, as usual over a beer, together with a friend, and we decided to hitchhike to Berlin, and from there I would try to make my way to the Black Sea, follow the coast through Ukraine, Moldova, Romania, Bulgaria and end in Istanbul where I could take a flight home.
So this is my plans, and until now they are happy followed. Berlin was a dream as always, what did we do? I have no idea… sleeping in Gorlitzer park, smoking on the balcony, there was also some Harry Potter in there, eating a lot of great food, dancing to Kate Bush during the cooking, wandering around in the rain under the umbrella, gay bars, sitting by the river at 8 in the morning, after a long night out, exploring exploring exploring. Together with friends that are all the time making me consider my incredible luck, - that I should meet such wonderful people!
And all the time my reality widened, and I don’t want to come back in to my normal little box of understanding. I want to keep this tresure of beeing able to accept more. We should all, I think, continously, meet a lot of things different to ourselves, and try to consume this. Take it in and let it work!
Now Ukraine, and I want to tell you all about it, but first i must post some pictures, then I must go to buy a trainticket.
