AN EXPERIENCE: A STORY OF THE ROAD

Music-on-the-Road-300x182I lay on the grass, tired from hours of rubber and road. My bones gave in and the excruciating hunger had dwarfed my mind. I rested craving for a warm fireplace near me. My clothes were dirty and my senses dusty, when a fellow hit the guitar and the music washed away from my soul the dust of everyday life.

Being a band on the road is a soulful experience that helps you explore the depths of beauty residing on this planet. It is the lovely call of the unknown that keeps us going with music to fill our time and space. We travel in groups and independently but to the final destination of self discovery.

I’ll tell you the story of a life blinded by a sentiment, chilled by an air of solitude, driven by a dream, restrained—amidst an ocean of change, restrained—by the breaking waves of misgiving. It’s yours, and it’s mine, and it’s how it has to be if ever we were meant to reach this land of self-discovery. It’s a bumpy ride, the genre a shifting tide. But if you let it lift your spirits, the music will carry you home.

Right from the cars we travel in to our beloved bikes resting on trailer hitch bike rack, our world is on wheels and our home is the road. Exhilarating and exciting are two words that are never missing from our lives. As a seasoned traveler and member of a band, I can tell you that if you could gather the gut to give in to the sense of fernweh in your eye, you would come back a much happier man. If you have music to accompany you in whatever form you feel, you would come back a happier man.

The people we met helped us understand the vast diversity of emotion within the humanity. While some listen to us to forget the past, some raise it to their future. Some listen to us to be distracted, some listen to us to fall deeper in love. Some people smile at us, some simply smirk at us. Some are extremely helpful, some just run away.

When you travel, you meet a few people but when you’re a band on the road, you meet more people on the road than you can imagine and it is then when you come to know the world closely and find yourself falling in love with it. The best moments are those when you get to a lonely piece of land on a mountain, get off your bike, feel the silence of the wind talk to you and fill the silence with music – all by yourself.

european-river-cruise-750x428

In our travels as a band, we come across a lot of new things and experience a lot of different cultures. There are a few places that is a must see or things that are a must do when travelling, and one of these things is going on a European river cruise.

There are many advantages of European River Cruises if you are looking for a getaway for a weekend or an extended vacation. These advantages include no car rental, no getting lost in a foreign country, all inclusive, and saving money. You should look into European river cruising if you want to take a vacation and see many different countries or if you have already been on the local Grand river cruises and would like try something new.

European River Cruises Offer The Perfect Mode Of Transport

Many people like to tour Europe by renting a car or by taking the train.

  • The problem with renting a car in a foreign country is that there are different laws you must know.
  • People don’t always drive the same in different countries. Insurance requirements are different also.
  • You may need to acquire a different type of insurance for each country you plan on driving through.
  • Car rentals are stressful on a vacation also, because you are responsible for the vehicle. If you should get in an accident, it could ruin your entire vacation.
  • A train doesn’t give you the stress of a car rental, but you are confined to the train.

One of the biggest advantages of river cruise vacations is that you don’t have the stress of insurance, accidents, and you are out in the fresh air cruising along the waterfront, much like being on one of the local Grand Circle river cruises.

European River Cruises Are A Better Way to Travel

European river cruising is much better than touring in a rental car, because of itinerary issues. Many people rent vehicles and map out their own trip driving along the countryside.

  • Foreign maps can be difficult to read and it would also be extremely scary to get lost in a foreign country.
  • Problems occur in towns where people don’t speak your language. You get lost, because the map isn’t up to date, and more.

European cruises take you along the river so you can see many different countries. You don’t have to worry about getting lost. The trip is planned for you and you get to see everything you want. Most of these ships have very knowledgeable guides on board which ensures that you get to do all the sightseeing you ever wanted.
