Expect the unexpected

Not really as bad as it looks.

It was one of those lazy mornings when the sun was shining long before I woke up. Perfect moment to get a friend for a roadtrip adventure. What happened next? I learned that having friends with similar passions and toys could be very helpful when trying to get out of trouble.

Long story short, I was driving the samurai uphill with the beautiful Teo on my right and without a care in the world. But then we reached the top and proceeded to crash into a huge hole. It was hard to miss, impossible to see.

Teo, happy to be alive 🙂

We got out and assessed the situation. No chance to move the samurai without destroying something, so we called Iulius and invited him for a rescue mission.

Everything went smoothly, not one scratch on the samurai, so we just stayed for the sunset and a nice picnic. All’s well that ends well.

I should mention that I had no camera with me, but luckily Iulius brought his Nikon D80 and I got to take all these pictures.  It was one of the first times I shot with a Nikon and I remember being quite impressed. Why do I only have Canons when my soul is constantly yearning for the Nikons?


The music:

Pixies – Where is My Mind?
From their album “Surfer Rosa” released in 1988. Last song on the “Fight Club” movie soundtrack.
