Summer festivals celebrate Slavic mountain culture in each nearby country.
Slovakia, July 2014.
Flew into Vienna on Wednesday. Rode to Slovakia on Thursday.
I feel like we’re constantly talking in comparisons and relationships because we cross borders all the time. Languages change and people change, but everything physically touches, so it all relates. How is it the same? How is it different? What does it taste like? How do you feel when people look at you, when they talk to you? Questions lead to speculation. This life is stimulating. When I have little routine and few obligations, my senses are heightened. Other people’s rhythms wake me from my daydreams. We share smiles and space. I’m grateful.
Reisboekhandel Pied à Terre is the most extensive travel bookstore I have ever visited. Daydreams become real. It is an excellent resource for walking and cycling routes. We’re currently riding the LF1 fietspad– the Noordzeeroute– down the coast of Holland, to the GR5 walking trail in Hoek van Holland. The GR5 continues through Belgium, Luxembourg and France. It reaches the Mediterranean at Nice, France.
