Saturday 12.7.2014-Pioneerirock, Koria, Finland
Oh yeah another hot summer day here in Finland and what better way to enjoy it than in the train ? Left from Kemi at 0746 and we’ll be in Kouvola at 1622, you do the math ;-) We’ll be going on stage at 2300 which would be perfect but the bronze medal game in the World Cup is starting at the same time so I’m gonna miss the Brazil-Holland game, or at least the first 60 minutes…other than that I think tonight will be great. Spent the time on the train with books,magazines and noodling with the computer and my phone….upon arrival we went to the hotel for a nap and a rest and at around 1900 the bus picked us up to the festival. As we had around 4 hours to kill before the show I focused on playing games on my phone and eating chips ;-) At some point our time was up (luckily) and during the show there were no accidents so all was well…during our final bow a massive firework started….it was a bit (=totally) of a surprise since nobody told us there would be one, nevertheless it was of course very cool and a couple of us (guess who?) decided to go out for a couple of drinks afterwards….since we arrived into the city quite late we didn’t have that much time…which in retrospect might have been for the better.Oh, and of course I watched the recap of the bronze medal game @ World Cup….. :-(
Sunday 13.7.2014-Travel Day
