First day on the road!
On the road!
We’re officially started our Balkan Express rally!
On Friday we left in the morning with the two cars from Apeldoorn, in Enschede we picked up team member 3 and set course towards Dresden. After about 7 hours and many short delays, thanks to roadworks, we arrived in downtown Dresden! First stage done! Not long after team member 4 arrived from Frankfurt, we had diner and a team meeting to set our goals.
A good nights sleep led us into Saturday, Starting Day, YAY!
In the mean time team member 5 had arrived from Romania!
We arrived at the start around 10, checked in, got our road books, helped some people with there CB-radios (and got some beers), put some stickers on other cars and walked around. Finally it was time for a short briefing, a massive group picture, and a then the start!
Not as 2 years before we started in a complete random order, but we rolled under the start at exactly 12.00
Setting course to Czech Republic, trying to complete our Road-mission. We visited 2 castles and 2 big rocks, mission completed!
Eventually we found a camping place in a garden of friends in the surroundings of Olomouc, but late but we found it!
Tomorrow, heading for Budapest!
