Euro Trip - Part 2 | Road Trip & Bospop Concert

Iran they said... HAH! xD

Location: Munich, Germany.
Destination: Leende, Netherlands.
Goal: Bospop Festival. Weert, Netherlands.

We rented an Audi A4 TDI for the road trip but I got a call telling me the Audi cannot be confirmed therefore I might get a GM Astra instead. We thought either ways it's all good and off we went to Europcar Munich to collect the car. I signed the papers, grabbed the keys, and went to their basement. I pressed on the remote but none of the GM/Opel cars opened. Turned out the *censored* gave us a Hyundai Tucson! And the navigation system is a joke. Nothing we did could change the car and our adventurous side told us to go ahead and take this adventure.

We hit the road at approx. 12pm heading to Leende. The trip was estimated to be 5 and a half hours though we took the long way passing through Stuttgart, Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, and reached our destination around 9:30pm. We stayed in Golden Tulip Jagershorst. Four-star hotels at their best, with bathroom separated from the beds by glass only, this hotel is perfect for honeymooners and not for us. It was great nevertheless.

The next day we showed up at Bospop Festival. Having bought day tickets we went there at 1pm to find out Santana was the last to play at 10pm so we enjoyed some of the other bands then we went out for lunch, and I wish we never did because they didn't allow me to bring my camera in, I told them I was inside with my camera a few minutes ago and no one said a thing but they refused claiming they didn't see me go in otherwise they would have taken it from me. B@stards! Santana was amazing. I managed to take some crappy quality videos with my cellphone and I'll upload them once I check if they're worthy.

Anyhow... Here are some clips from the road trip and the concert.

UPDATE: Carlos Santana - Maria Maria

Cheap quality, I know, but that's the only thing I could get. You can find more Bospop 2008 on Youtube

Euro Trip - Part 1 | Munich

Here I am back in Kuwait, and whoa it's boiling out here! But it is so damn good to be back, well, except for the weather, landscapes, and people's attitude of course but you get the point... Home sweet home.

The trip was a total success. I have never enjoyed a vacation as much as I did in this one. We arrived in Munich on the 5th of July. The weather was somewhat like Kuwaiti winter with astonishing cloudy skies and scattered rain, it didn't even go over 25c!

For six days Marienplatz was our everyday spot but we took some time to checkout the top 10 things in Munich. We have visited Allianz-Arena (the world's most amazing stadium), Nymphenburg palace, Munich FrauenKirche (the footstep of the devil!), BMW Museum, Englischer Garten, Olympiapark, attended an open air symphony, and we have made friends with an american opera singer!

We had a crazy/funny part in each location. Like in Allianz-Arena we have missed the english tour twice (two days) then we finally had the chance to go in on the third day. And in Frauenkirche, the foot of the devil is Exactly my foot size! (yes, I've been told I'm the Devil but couldn't make sure till now). As for the open air symphony, that was a whole separate adventure... Guests in suits and we're wearing shorts! People around us actually thought we are a gay couple! Damn that was embarrassing! lmao xD

I don't want to give specific details because it would take thousands of lines so I'll just leave you here with some random pics of the first part, pics I took in Germany...
