The Globe cruiser van was finished officially on one Saturday in the beginning of September 2009. And already the next day on Sunday, after some final finishing touches, me, my sister Ana and a friend Tina, were already on the road to the Globe Cruiser first Adventure of Czech Republic and Poland.
Our first destination was Mikulow area in the south-east part of the Czech Republic. Our first challange was just around the corner on our way to Austria, the country we had to drive trough to get to the Czech lands.
We decided to drive over a mountain pass Ljubelj instead of taking the tunnel trough the Karavanke mountains. That was quite a challanging idea, as on our way up, we had to stop about 5 times, to cool down the engine. With a 20 years old cooling system it takes some time:) And on the way down, the new breaking pads I’ve instaled during the renovation got so heated up, that the breaks stopped working.
Was quite amazing news on the first 50 km of the 4500 km long journey. But as the breaks cooled down and we came to flat-lands and on the highway, we on the roll again. And everything went smoothly from than on.
We’ve had a fun drive trough Austria, talking about all the plans and places we want to see with a wonderful scenic sights of the places we were passing by.
We’ve arrived to our destination of Milkulov at the time of the sunset. It was an amazing drive and adventure to build this van and take it to it’s first travel destination. And the welcoming picture of the camp, was just a lovely reward. The next day will be just resting and enjoying.
And the breathtaking glowing sign in the sky, kind of set the bless light for the whole adventure to come . . .
