Dear Animals and Humans behind this awesome site and project… we were told by our Guardians Adam Totoro and Evelyn Vedrana that it would be wise and helpfull for everyone involved to share our wonderful and rewarding campaign on a crowd funding platform with you… today we are passing through 13th day of our already enormously sucessful campaign… we have collected 25% of the goal ( that we will stretch when we achieve it) and we have helped already through our network and the awesome and loving hands of Mr. Dragan, five dogs who needed wheelchair because of their current health condition.Please read below two links:
one on the project site and one on the Facebook page dedicated to update everyone on the project and to network with success any wheelchair that we manage to get through this campaign… we are helping dogs and cats but we are open to help any other animal in need as i am sure out there we can together find more tools like our wheelchair that can save and improve lives of our Animal guardians Love from Europe (this campaign is run by the team spreading from Ireland to Croatia and Serbia

DAY 31: From TRNAVA to VIENNA :)


31.01.2013.

Digital StillCameraI had to say Thank you again to my dear host Jozef in TRNAVA. Previous night he  was kind to take us for an extra night as our hitchhiking attempt was unsuccessful. So we had to take a late local train to go back to Trnava from Bratislava.

We shared a breakfast and then he walked with us again to a hitchhiking spot on a beautiful sunny day.

On the way we have seen the  walls of the old town…

Digital StillCamera220px-Spartak_Trnava_current_logo…and a stadium of a local football team Spartak Trnava, whose supporters are known to be the most passionate in Slovakia and the team has a long successfull history in former Czechoslovak league. They have even reached a semifinal of Europan cup in year 1969. This was at a time when football wasn’t infulenced by big money like today.

We say goodbye to our dear friends Jozef and Garofix as we hitchihike for a second day in a row from Trnava to Bratislava

We got a ride in less then 30 minutes and in Bratislava we catched a train to Vienna and saved a bit of money by buying a ticket for half of the journey. In Vienna I had arranged a couch for us with our new host Ash who also has a dog 🙂

Digital StillCameraAs Ash was at work when we arrived, there was time to explore the city center before we met him later at his home.

Digital StillCameraVienna has a rich history and you can see it almost on every step in the old town. As it was under Habsburg rule for many years and later a capital of Austro-Hungarian empire it has many significant buildings from those periods.

Digital StillCamera

One of the most famous and oldest is a St.Stephen’s cathedral or Stephansdom which has been built in 12th century and has since dominated the center of town. Here is a post on Evelyn’s blog about it 🙂

Digital StillCameraAnother well known site is Hofburg imperial palace that was the center of Habsburg empire. Today it is an official seta of an Austrian president. We only had time to see it on the outside.

Digital StillCameraWe took a moment to take a photo together and

We have traveled for one month already and experienced many wonderful stories and I was very grateful for all the amazing people we met on the way.

The trip has already been a big success as we have talked with many people from different organizations working with homeless people and also with some who have other social projects like a kids therapy center OSTOJA in Wroclaw.

I gained a lot of experience from all this encounters and learned a lot about the situation of homeless people around Europe. And now we were getting close to Balkan countries where I come from and I was excited, specially about the trip to SARAJEVO; my birth place.

Digital StillCameraDigital StillCameraAfter that short stop we went to O’Connors old oak pub where my dear friend Gaz works as a head chef. We used to work together in Dublin in ELY restaurant in DUBLIN and now he has been living here for three years already.

Digital StillCameraI remembered my first trip to Vienna last summer; I spend few lovely days with him and his family and he was a saviour on my arrival.

Digital StillCameraThis time he was very busy so I enjoyed the beer while Evelyn was asleep.  The pub was buzzing and it was great to see they are doing soo well.

Digital StillCameraAfter that it was time to meet our host Ash, so went to his place, where Evelyn started playing with his dog 🙂

We then went out for few beers and the night ended very late.

 

Happy in Zadar,Croatia…


sorry only an old photo in this post, which will probably reduce the chance of many likes 😛

this is not Zadar, but Mostar, one of the many places that stays in our hearts..Digital StillCamera

we are still on the road… 51st day… many kilometers traveled, many stories experiemced… many new friends…

We are now in Zadar… we arrived here yesterday after hitchhiking for two days from Split which is only 150km away… but two night sleeping outside when you dont plan was a blessing…

I would really like to write more frequently qbout our trip, but I have no laptop with me so it is only when I get a chance to use someones computer… but there will be time to tell the stories…

 

after an amazing and isnpirational day in Zadar I say good night or good day to all of you who read this…

love from Evelyn and Muppet

DAY 18: POZNAN; I meet someone from Red Cross Poland and fun with hosts


Digital StillCameraDigital StillCameraSometimes you start a day full of enthusiasm and expectation but things don’t go the way you planned or hoped. Our second day in POZNAN was a bit like this. I went out early with Evelyn to explore the city and walked to BARKA organization office, but I couldn’t find anyone there. Hopefuly I will get some info from them through email and phone. I continued searching for places following the list I got in a tourist info office.

Digital StillCameraDigital StillCameraAt the end I manage to see someone in Red Cross Poznan and we talked about their projects and I got a lot of material in Polish 😀

Afterwards I found a nice place to have some warm food that is dog friendly…

 

IMGP1331IMGP1333in Republika Roz I had a traditional borsch and a delicious hot chocolate with local monks liquer 😀

Digital StillCameraDigital StillCameraDigital StillCamera

Digital StillCameraDigital StillCameraWe were both rested and we spend the rest of the afternoon walking around the city. Later I made some food for our hosts and we went for a walk with our new friend Anna…

We are leaving Wroclaw and moving to Prague…THANK YOU WROCLAW!


Digital StillCameraDigital StillCameraIt has been incredible four days and three nights here as I met so many great people and I visited three great organizations with differerent social projects. I am very grateful for hospitality of my new friend Adrian and his flatmate Owen and also for all the people here that would very helpful and happy to share their stories and work.

Digital StillCameraI have talked to Majka from ‘Foundation House of Peace’

Digital StillCameraMargarida from Ostoja theraphy center for kids with disabilities 

and to Oleg from Towarzystwo Pomocy im. św. Brata Alberta and they are working with homeless people.

I will write more about their work in other posts, but you can find them in the links above and on their facebook pages.

I am so glad that we stayed here much longer then planned as this city is full of very active people and there is so much going on. Also in 2016 it will be a cultural capital of Europe and I invite you to visit it when you get a chance.

Digital StillCameraTHANK YOU PEOPLE OF WROCLAW!

Now we are going to hitchhike to Prague where we stay one or two nights and afterwards we would like to go to:

Bratislava,Wien,Graz,Maribor,Ljubljana,Zagreb,Bihac,Sarajevo,Mostar,Split,Sibenik,Zadar,Rijeka,Venezia,Verona,Milano and then we are back to Grenoble in France.

So still a long way to go but as this is day 23 we have crossed the half way of our journey in terms of days but not in terms of countries visited. We will have to speed it up 😀

Love from Evelyn and Muppet

DAY 9; ZURICH – fantastic day; with Roy Gerber from SWS and Walter Sommer from Heils Armee Open Heart :D


IMGP0681 This was a highlight day of our stay in Zurich.

I spent morning behind computer like now 🙂 and then at 3.30pm I meet with Mr. Roy Gerber from SWS- Sozialwerke Pfarrer Sieber. 

IMGP0682We started talking before they opened the door of their Sunestube center and afterwards we took a break as he was busy. But later we continued and all together after one hour talk and sharing off knowledge,ideas,information I left this place so happy and grateful that I met someone with such a long experience in social projects. Also he was kind to offer help to our small association in Zagreb and we are hoping that we will be able to organize his arrival this April and do something together!

IMGP0683As I had a meal in Sunestube, I met another interesting guy and he was kind to take me to Open  Heart place that is run by local Heils Armee and there I have met Mr. Walter Sommer and had another great talk and we agreed to stay in contact. This center provides 12 bunk beds during winter for people that don’t have anywhere else to stay and they also serve dinner for free and offer help on individual basis.

I have recorded interviews with both of them and once I finish the trip I will be able to edit them and then post them here.

IMGP0691IMGP0694After such an exciting day I went to Helvetia hotel where my dear friend Rene works and there I shared a drink with a new friend that I met in Sunestube. Later Rene joined me for a beer and we finished last night together talking and laughing till late hours.

Zurich was another great experience and I left Switzerland happy and exited about what will the rest of the trip bring.

THANK YOU to everyone I met in Zurich 😀

Lausanne welcomes us…AUDIO


After great time spent in Geneve we hit the road again, but only for a short train trip to Lausanne. Before catching the train we found out the address of Armee du Salut in Lausanne and my plan was to go there after a short look around old town.

IMGP0222

So we arrived with regional train to Lausanne and went to old town first.

IMGP0223

IMGP0240 IMGP0244That is when the surprise comes, we come to cathedral and in front of it we see a white tent and some people putting things away. They were serving soup,tea,coffee,juices,biscuits and talking about christianity to people who would come to tent. Peter, one of the people involved was very kind to invite me into his home outside Lausanne after 5 minutes conversation.

We ended up spending few hours talking until him and his wife Deborah were to tired and we went to bed.
