Arrived

10. August 2012 in Roadtrip



We drove 4200 km; approx. 2500 Silvio, 1200 Tom, 500 Susi and half a meter in a parking lot Judy aswell. We didn’t sleep in the bus in just four nights. Susi and Judy also spent two nights in a hospital. We saw a lot of cities, several of them just from the car. We lost the way a lot, but we always found it in the end. We went through mountains and through lowlands, through velds and through meadows. Just on one day there was bad weather, we went to swim 6 times, once in a lake, once in a mountain river and for many many hours we were just sitting in the bus. We laughed and we worked, we were thinking and we also slept. For two weeks we lived in our bus and yesterday we finally arrived. Now there is no more driving. We’ve reached our goal!



Yesterday we left Redondela already at three in the morning, so that we would have enough time to tidy our bus for the handing over of the bus. At the gas station we cleaned the bus and just some kilometers in front of the children’s village, we dekorated it with balloong and two bows.
When we arrived, the minister of the Austrian embassy, Dr. Alexander Benedict, was already there and the director of the children’s village, Salvador Espiritu Santo, was expecting us. It was really great to see that the embassy appreciates our project that much and we were happy to feel that we were received as part of the village. Unfortunately the kids were at the beach when we came, but we could get to know them, when we had BBQ together.
Today we slept long, we were really exhausted from the last two weeks. We saw a presentation of the kids in a school and then the director of the village and some kids took us to the nicest place in the surroundings of Bicesse.
The people here care for us, the kids talk to us all the time and they don’t care that we don’t understand anything of what they are saying. We are completely integrated in the life of the village and we are so so happy to finally have arrived.

Family in Galician

9. August 2012 in Fotos, Roadtrip



The morning of today was quite exciting again. Susi was still at the hospital and we didn’t really know, if she would be allowed to go. A funny Spanish doctor – Dr. Herreros Sande, who was teaching an intern at the same time, when he was in our room and showed us pictures from Vienna on his I-Phone, finally allowed her to leave and told me to make sure, that she’ll go back to any hospital as soon as she: has high fever, is in pain or starts vomiting.
We were so happy to have our Susi back!
Immediately after her release we started to drive to the SOS-Children’s Village in Redondela. It was nice to be looking forward to such a visit again. In Redondela we got the warmest welcome and we got feeded at once. The director knew already about Susi’s problem and therefore did everything to make it as comfortable as possible for all of us.
We had another drawing session with the kids and they decided to write the slogan “todos juntos como hermanos.” (all together like siblings) on the bus. They were shouting so loud. We’ve never experienced that in another children’s village. The Spanish have a very special temper.
After driving to the beach with the kids for some time, we went back to the children’s village and had a shower in the house, where we can stay for today. We will stay until 3 in the morning and then start our last part of the journey to Bicesse. We have to catch up!
An educator from the village gave us a great interview. The village in Redondela is really interesting, because it works different from other children’s villages that we’ve seen so far. The most important here is the environment in wchich the kids are raised. There is a hen coop and a greenhouse. Like that the children learn how much work it is to produce edibles.
We will try to relax a little, because we have to drive quite far tomorrow. We also have to clean the bus and make it ready to hand it over to the kids in Bicesse. We are looking forward a lot to tomorrow, although we are already used to our bus and we’ll surely miss it a lot.

Downtime

8. August 2012 in Fotos, Roadtrip



It came as we had feared and Susi had to stay in the hospital, because she still had high fever and we wouldn’t have been able to go on driving with her in that state. We stayed one more day in the beautiful city of Lugo. So that Susi could rest and recover a little. Right now we are sitting in the same café as yesterday, just this time there are three of us.
Except the fact that Susi was admitted to the hospital, this day was really relaxing for us, because it was the first day on this journey on which we didn’t drive for hours and hours. The most important thing today was to find a possibility to have a shower. The last time weh ad a shower was in Barcelona. At a small public pool we found showers with icecold water. We also took the chance to wash some of our laundry. The Galicians were quite surprised when they saw us drying the laundry at the pool.
In the meantime Susi was in the hospital all day. Although the day was really relaxing for us, we thought a lot about our Susi. After ten days of being on the road together, the four of us build an unseparable community and it it sad and strange that she is not with us, but tomorrow we’ll have her back!
We have a tight schedule, tomorrow we have an appointment in Redondela and the day after tomorrow we will hand over the bus tot he children in Bicesse near Lisbon.
Just two more days on the road and still we are looking forward to a lot more adventures. Not a lot of our plans for this journey really worked out on time, so it is always a surprise, where we end up every evening and from where we write the posts.

Vicky, Christina, Barcelona meets Lucus Augusti

7. August 2012 in Fotos, Roadtrip



Yesterday evening, we found a great place to sleep! In the middle of the forest between wolves and eagle owls. Around a bonfire we recapped our journey – it is difficult for us, to make you understand all our experiences, because of the speed of the journey and the whole work with documenting it. Time seems to fly and the experiences seem to just pass us.


The next day in the morning, we are woken by cows and their bells – a day that starts like that just has to be adventurous! We were searching for a laundrette and started in the next big city that we found in our map – Oviedo and we suddenly found ourselves on the set of Vicky Christina Barcelona by Woody Allen. We didn’t find a laundrette, but we had a little snack in the city center.


Suddenly everything happened really fast. We would have never thought, that something like that could happen. Right now we are sitting in the Lucus Augusti Hospital in Lugo and Susi already got an infusion – it is two o’clock in the morning and we are waiting for the examination results.
Already in Barcelona she was suffering from a bellyache. Our Susi is tough, but today she couldn’t stand it any longer. She was in pain whenever there was a bump on the street. Already for four days she was shivering and the pains in her belly became worse and worse. Whenever we asked her to see a doctor or go to the hospital, she refused. We think that she wanted to bear her pains for the group and the project, but in the end it was too much for her and we drove her to the hospital in Lugo. For already five hours we are sitting next to Susi who is totally exhausted and has 39,7°C fever, but who is still filming us from her bed.
We are still waiting for the results. In this moment we don’t really know how to go on. Will Susi be fit enough to travel on with us or does she have to stay in the hospital??? Does she have to get surgery? (the symptoms might indicate appendicitis) The question is: how will we be able to keep our schedule. Tomorrow (Tuesday) we should be at the SOS-Children’s Village in Redondela. There the last drawing workshop before Lisbon will be held. We have to be in Bicesse (near Lisbon) just two days later.


We hear steps and the empty corridor of the hospital that approach our room. After all that waiting, we finally know. In Spanish and some English the doctor tells us the diagnosis: pyelonephritis. She has to stay overnight and we don’t know yet, when she will be released – in any case: we won’t drive on without her!


It is 8:45 the next day – today. Silvio and Thomas are sitting in a café in Lugo to inform you guys about this. Judy motherly watches Susi in the hospital. We will go back to the hospital too and will see how things evolve. We’ll keep you informed about everything tomorrow…

    Wie heisst es so schćn wenn einer eine Reise tut hat er was zu erzaehlen, wenn vier eine Reise machen koennen sie einen Film drehen. Das mit Susi tut mir leid, eine Nierenbeckenentzuendung ist sehr schmerzhaft, kann man aber mit Medikamente schnell wieder in den Griff bekommen – Susi muss viel trinken.
    Ich bin zur Zeit auch auf Urlaub in Slowenien, bin spontan mit Ursula und Ihren
    Papa in eine Therme gefahren und wir machen Camping Urlaub ist wie frueher und diese Urlaube waren immer schoen – Camping ist Freiheit
