Remember that movie 'The Beach'? Who wouldn't.
Remember that feeling too? When we all wanted to get away and be a part of that paradise life. The beach, the sunshine, the friendly, supportive and care-free community. Far, far away from the 9 to 5 office jobs, day-to-day problems and all the materialistic crap.
Well, up until it all went horribly wrong...
We learnt that nothing is perfect and nothing really lasts forever - not even on a paradise island.
The reason why I'm talking about this movie, is because I got to experience a bit of my own paradise last summer - which unfortunately also didn't last forever.
A place, where happiness is contagious, fun is viral & problems seem to instantly vanish.
Three whole days of pure heaven!
People are nice to each other, they care and have all the time in the world for you. I've been to a few festivals in my life, but this place is different.
People will tell you that it's a special place - quite different from the rest, but you don't take much notice until you get to experience it yourself. It's not just about the care-free vibe, but how extremely well organised this place is.
So what am I talking about?
It's the POHODA festival in Slovakia.
Throwback Summer Video
I truly have never been to a festival, where everything is so clean, well coordinated, entertaining and educational.
However, the end is always bittersweet. When you have to leave and face reality again. The 'high' wears off and all that's left is your memory & your guarantee that you'll be back.
I'll sure be part of this experience every single year...
I can't recommend it enough!
