Already one week of traveling is over! Incredible how fast time goes by, but at the same time we experience so many different things each day that it feels like we have been traveling for months.The show is developing each time we play it, and we learnt one important thing: nothing is predictable. Ever.
After giving a workshop for kids at Agapedia in Esslingen, we went to Stuttgart to perform in the city center. At the beginning, we thought it might be tough to perform in a shopping street with many other artists around, but we actually could perform three really nice shows quite a lot of public. There’s a lot of street artists around, the people of Stuttgart seemed to be used to watching street performances and therefore often stayed throughout the whole show. A very nice experience, even with sunshine!
As we were only traveling in Germany so far, every stop is also a family meeting. In each city we met cousins, sisters, moms or grandpas of Zirkrobajka members. Thanks to Fela Bancken for taking the pictures you see in this entry!
After Stuttgart, we had the most relaxing and beautiful sleepover in a village on the way to Freiburg. Thanks so much to the Bulmer family for their hospitality and the great food!
We spent the last two days in Freiburg with finally good weather (although still freezing cold in the night), nice performances, good beer and food and again a great place to stay (thanks to Berni and Clemens!). After our last street show yesterday, a grandma even dropped an envelope with some money from the third floor – with the inscription “Well done!”. Things like this make our day.
Today, we will start the journey to Prague and spend the night camping somewhere on the way. With all those people spoiling us with their great homes we need some wild camping for the spirit of a street artist…
Stay tuned for some amazing pictures coming up soon! Looking forward to Prague,
Love & travel fever
