I woke up today and asked myself if everything that happened last week was real or not, because I have sometimes had dreams…like this…
As about 2 months ago I got a beautiful letter with snowflakes from Slovakia…in which I was invited to perform there. Though I had only 5 singles out then and others songs were in my head, but totally unfinished I decided to do it, because it is always so easy to say no…but how can we learn without challenges?So I started writing and writing and finished the last song at night in Frankfurt Airport a day before my first performance at Radio FM. Crazy:)
DAY 1. A small rehearsal in my living room 2 hours before the flight with Stina.Someday I would like to perform with a real piano…but this time it was too big and heavy to take it on a plane:) In Frankfurt airport people constantly thought I wanted to smoke “so-me-thing”, because I looked colourful…yes, even shopkeepers asked that, after I had just paid for my milk.☮ We spent a night in the airport, which seemed to be totally empty. But, nope, there was a lovely little mouse running around the airport. And so I got a new friend:)
DAY 2. Four in the morning I finished my last song and took a short 2-hour sleep, because in 3 hours we had to be on a plane to Vienna. In Vienna there was spring…18 degrees.So we walked through Vienna, spent 4 hours in Starbucks, because we needed free WiFi in purpose not to get lost and space to glue my fairytale book. In the evening we met Kristina and Dodo who took us to Radio_FM in Bratislava. When I first saw the building I had a really strange feeling inside me, because it was gigantic, but when I met wonderful Juraj and other super nice the people there and saw Kris` and Dodo`s happy faces I started to feel happy too…It was a really lovely evening there and the live went also pretty well.You can listen to it here. Of course, I could have done it a lot a lot a lot a lot better, but as life and art and performing are all about moments then that moment it just had to go like this, but I learned a lot about myself and others and music and trust and life that day and when I fell asleep I was in love and peace with the world and Slovakian people. And I still am.
DAY 3. We started driving to Poprad with superawesome Lixx, Kris and Dodo and stopped in a little green city, where we ate some special wafers we started to call in a funny way, fed swans and ducks and thought how to make music with them…in the evening we reached our destination in high Tatras, it was b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l and it was even more beautiful to drive there with 2 angels.
DAY 4 part 1. We discovered that we had forgotten half of our clothes and so we had to buy some summerclothes.We found them fast and then visited a really lovely bookshop where Kris` friend was working. Then Groteska people prepared us the best coffee in the whole world and we got addicted.After that, TO THE MOUNTAINS. In a pizza bar a lovely waitress said to me that she had listened to the radio and loved my music and I somehow managed inside not to start crying though I had almost failed. We went to see a little spring and drank its pure cold water before we went back to Groteska to do our soundcheck. During the soundcheck a nice visitor bought me and Stina drinks and it was the best mineral grape juice ever!
DAY 4 part 2. 3 hours before the concert started we went back to our hotel room and talked/played some important things over, got dressed and messed and then Lixx and Kris helped us to Groteska, where Monogram(such a nice person and artist) was DJing and then it was our turn. The night before I had had a dream how my costume gets broken….and it really happened during the 1st song. I am a mess, but it was funny:)The concert went great, I fell even more in love with the people there and in the end they sung with me, which made me really happy. After the concert two nice ladies wanted to take a picture with us, we had an interesting chat with Lixx (who soon started to play his awesome set and me and Stina floated away for a while) Peter and Tom who gave me imaginary flowers at first, but 30 minutes later they became real tulips, and he did the best joke I had heard for a long long time and Stina had never laughed so much.And of course Dodo and Kris…everything they did was just…I cannot put it into words. It was the best day in my life so far!
DAY 5. Our last coffee ar Groteska and then to the mountains again!And then we drove 5 hours to Vienna and wow, it was the best roadtrip ever, we all went totally crazy.Lululululuulululu!Saying “Bye” was harder than ever…
And then we spent a day in Vienna, which was beautiful too…though on Monday the city was half-dead/half-alive. I got my first bubble tea experience too. And so I sat on the grass, put some pine-needles into my hair and watched how the branches of a tree started calling for peace. And so I decided that he was Peace☮ tree:)
Yep, friends, it was the best week in my life so far and I thank everyone for just being there with me, for the beautiful words and wishes. Armastus<3
Don`t forget ☮ and love and lululululululululululululululululuuuuuu to You all!I hope to see You soon!
Your little creature, P.
