About

We love psytrance.

We love festivals.

We love roadtrips.

We love crafting.

We love lighthouses.

Our project is about being on the road for 5 months through 14 countries, attending 8 psytrance events, photograph Europe`s lighthouses (and all the things and people we find interesting) and do henna and dreamcatcher workshops as well as create your rewards meanwhile.

The mission

We attend psytrance festivals each year. We do henna and crafting for people around us. We do roadtrips regularly. We capture lighthouses during our trips. Now we decided to do these all at once since these are the activities making us happy. We decided to sell our car, buy a campervan and travel through Europe. The mission of our project is to spread peace, love, unity and respect through laughing, dancing, singing, crafting, teaching and capturing joyful moments and cool places.

At the end of the project we aim to exhibit our photos somewhere in Europe at a possibly central and easily reachable location so most of you could attend. We also aim to create a digital photobook what we give away as a reward in exchange for your support :) And of course, we are very very happy to create many colorful dreamcatchers for you and to do workshops around Europe so our loved psy sisters and brothers can also learn how to do it :)))

The route

We plan to drive about 13.000 kilometers from the middle of April until the middle of September

The budget

What we finance from own budget?

  • We will finance our campervan with a solar panel and all the equipment we need for vanlife like kitchen stuff, mattress etc.
  • We have already bought tickets to AlkemikA Regeneration Gathering, Multi Dimensional Festival, We are One Gathering (only need a caravan pitch) and Psy-Fi Festival (a mobile home ticket is still to get). We applied for doing workshops as well as selling crafts at Mystic Mountain Festival, Shankra Festival and We are One Gathering. We will see if we need to purchase tickets here - however we calculated as we would need.
  • We will finance what we need for "survival" like food and drink.

  • The remaining festival tickets with campervan parking if applicable - approx. 1000€
  • Used photo equipment (Canon EOS 60D body + Canon EF-S 18-200 mm F3.5-5.6 IS STM lens +Canon EF 28 mm F2.8 lens ) - approx. 1000€

Risks and challenges

In our life we have gone through many tough situations and we have never had any issues that we couldn´t solve together. However before our trip starts we would like to do two things:

#1 We would like to sell our SUV in order to be able to buy a campervan. Now we are in Italy so it would be ideal to get a buyer here. If you can help us with this, just let us know :)

#2 We have three cats: Cica, Dixi and Kopi. We have gone through Slovenia, Italy, France and Spain together with them by car and now we clearly see that it would be the best for all of us if we would find loving new owners to Cica and Dixi and take only Kopi with us. Cica and Dixi were not so well with the travels and we think that life in a campervan and being on the road continuously for 5 months would be too much for them. If you can help us finding a new owner to them, please let us know. Both cats are girls with 10+ years and very calm. Cica is Siamese, Dixi is a white house cat with black tail. Thanks for your help!:)

Apart from these, we think there aren't any risks and challenges in this project. We are experienced travellers with more than 100.000 kilometers behind us in the previous 4 years. We tried all kind of travelling: we slept in our car for days in Sweden, we slept in our tent or in a hammock in Croatia, we used campsites for taking a rest and we also tried airbnb or other apartment sites many times. During our travels we were facing with challenges many times: we lost our bank card, we had defect on our car, our passport was expired, we ran out of fuel and so on. Things can happen but we always managed to come over them together :)
