Lost in Pagan Musick :-)

13 Jun 2018

Today we're practicing and arranging loads of OMNIA songs in Bulgaria with our old friend Peter Todorov (whom you probably also know from the amazing band Irfan) :-)
And the sounds and energy of our gathering warms our souls like the Huge Bulgarian Nature that surrounds us!

Greenz and beatz from the Balkan!
Stenny and Peter

Home is where the van is... (But now it's a yurt!)

This what our Bulgarian "home" looks like at the moment!

We're settling in nicely :-)
Already My shoulder aches from shooting bow, My Ass hurts from riding Horse... The Sun is HOT, but eveything's cool and We feel fine!


Free Butter....Fly!

Do you save small flying ones (or creepy crawly ones) when they accidentally fly into your house?
I hope so...this is butterfly number 5 today!
Love from Bulgaria

Roadtrip to Bulgaria (part 8)

11 Jun 2018

We've arrived!

After rolling through Serbia , at last we entered Bulgaria , driving into progressively wilder and rougher nature on smaller and smaller roads untill the last few miles turned into unpaved 4x4 landrover tracks which we forced our trusty black beauty into and over! (She's tough!)
Even Fording a pretty scary rocky stream which pushed our wheels to the limit :-)
untill finally we reached journey's end in the beautifull , peacefull land of our Bulgarian friends.

"Classic book blog"

A literary intermezzo
As you may have noticed my blogs of late have been kind of
"Coloured" by a certain famous childrens book ... that would be this one :-)

This is my first and only copy of mr.Tolkien's absolute classic story book "the Hobbit"
(It's still one of my all time favourite books)
I bought it (second hand) in 1986 when I was a poor homeless punkrocker and it has been my constant companion for all these years.
It has held me spellbound everytime I read it.

Help! Mr.Stenny go Craizy!!

Roadtrip Bulgaria (part 5)

9 Jun 2018

After passing through the misty mountains and mirkwood (where we had a minor encounter with some giant spiders that turned out fine because the Dwarves weren't with us anymore to let us stray from the path)
we rolled through beautifull Slovenia and have now stopped for the night in the gorgeous countryside of Hrvatska (which the rest of the world oddly refers to as "Kroatia") in the lovely ancient village of Čigoč.

Roadtrip to Bulgaria (part 3)

8 Jun 2018

We have reached the foot of the misty mountains in Austria and made camp for the night...

We heard rumours so we are on the lookout for Goblins and possibly Trolls (but thankfully no Dragons here ;-)

The Dwarves are complaining but the Hobbit seems happy birdwatching!

Roadtrip to Bulgaria (part 2)

8 Jun 2018

Love in the "The Gerumpelstube"!

We stopped over for a night at our dear Markus and Verena's homely place in Wachenheim an der Weinstrasse
To catch up on stories, to share a slice of life and friendship as well as great food and wine!... (honestly, the delicious dishes that Markus can prepare for Vegans, Vegetarians and Paleo people is just AMAZING!!)
Now, feeling refreshed ,happy and rested we resume our road journey to the long long far far ;-)
today we drive to the big ol'mountains... the Alps!

The road goes ever on!

Road Trip to Bulgaria (part 1)!

7 Jun 2018

Steve has been re-building the interior of our van the last few days (re-using old material and some douglas pine felled by a friend which he cut into planks himself). The result is a beautiful, practical and snug interior with a bed, lots of storage space and a lovely smell... ;-)
Now we're gonna take our 'Black Beauty' on a testdrive all the way to Bulgaria. We are on our way to our friends of
"The way of the Horse and Bow" in the mountains to, well, you guessed it, ride horses and shoot bows!
