How can we afford to travel non stop?  

Discover

Yesterday we had a new great start of a new trip! Our "Travel for Peace" new mission, traveling toward the Serbian border to volunteer with fellow humans escaping their homes and forced to endure huge challenges and ask asylum in a foreigner country, usually referred to as "Refugees". But about this more in the next days.  
Otilia​ as usual was really late and at 12am she was still at home packing. After leaving home our luck started to change, and everything came exactly when we needed it: free wifi, a host in Sofia, an offered lunch, Oti's health card withdrawn just minutes before leaving.
At 8pm we were already in Sophia, 7 hours away if you have a private car according to google maps, and basically the same if you hitchhike with the luck on your side, including a lunch gently offered by one of our super funny drivers.
We tested all our language abilities and communicated in Spanish with the first driver, Romanian with the second and English with the third, while they were all Bulgarian. Now you can't say anymore that Bulgarians don't speak foreign languages!
We arrived in time in Sofia to meet our friend Stanislav​ in the center and be later welcomed at his place!
Sadly Davide​ couldn't meet also his old friend Desita​, but maybe next time we'll have more luck.
A great new beginning, we are looking forward for the next days!
