Goodbye Istanbul

It was early in the morning when our team met at the hotel, with all the luggage and instruments. None of us realized that we were actually going to hit the road. Istanbul was rainy and cold, so it was fairly easy to say goodbye to the city. The first trip took approximately 10 hours, and we arrived in Sofia in the evening which is a really nice city and had a great dinner together. Now we will start our trip to Belgrade and we know that this whole journey to Ghent will be full of new experiences that will provide the aural and conceptual basis for the concert.
