The campground was established in 2018. That explains why all their facilities are looking new and very-well maintained. The owner is also very welcoming and friendly. As we checked-in, we could really tell that he knew his town very well. He showed us some trails we could follow if we want to explore.
I like wandering and taking long walks. Well, that’s something I doubt about the two – Mae and Kay. Many times I heard of them talking about being physically active and do some hiking, but the plan is still in the air.
As Mae was building up the tent, Kay arrived with groceries on-hand. Just as he got off from the bike, he quickly ran to Mae. Then I wonder! Whooops!!! Another bee stung him at the back of his neck. This is his second time actually on this day, he just remembered being hit by a bee once before in his life-also while riding. Kay has sweeter blood of B- than Mae‘s 0+. Though Mae could still not get-over on how to say her blood-group. Kay insists it to be „Zero plus“, while Mae says it as „O (as in boat) plus“. Ruff, ruff!!!
Next to us in the campground was another couple we got to know, who has been traveling as well on one motorcycle since 6 weeks from Scotland on the way to Romania, their home country. We were entertained as they retold their „not-so-fun“ experience on that day – riding through the storm, non-waterproof luggage, fixing dead-battery in the rain, being fined for the missing highway-toll vignette and so on. In situations like this, one can only learn from the experience. A traveler can be under-prepared or over-prepared, but at the end of the day, real victory is when arriving in the destination.
Soon they became friends with Mae and Kay, and chatted until late in the evening, with dinner being shared.
This evening, here and now, the four feel really international, as citizens of the world, not divided with countries they are coming from. Curious getting to explore the world they are living in. Hopefully we will meet again in Germany (Christian has a German heritage), or Romania – they plan to build a B&B. Maybe in the Philippines.
Ruff, your H1.
