Enjoy this simple video of Laura with one other spreading joy on the streets of London, brightening days and starting conversations – bubbles really do have magical powers!
Me and Katarina were staying in Klagenfurt on the Focallocal Roadtrip 4 Connection, using FL events to spread happiness to Austria. We decided on Give a Bubble and invited our CouchSurfing host Ramsey and his flatmate Becks to join us spreading happiness and connection in their local community.
Becks wasnt at all sure about joining us, as a soldier in the Austrian army the idea of blowing bubbles was initially a little far out from his usual environment, and comfort zone.
We were bubbling around Trieste … searching for smiles on people walking by … and when a smile has been caught, bubbles have been offered. Some of the people care more, some less but hey it’s like that with every thing, isn’t it?
Our meeting point was in Trieste, Italy at Piazza Unità d’Italia.
We chose the central train station (Lyon Gare Partie-Deux) in Lyon, France as a place that needed brightening up for the day – a place where lots of people would be, and one where lots are rushing around
We picked a spot to sit in the sun while we made and decorated some “Unisciti a Noi. Prendere Una Bolla” signs (Join us and Blow a Bubble signs (i hope). We then picked a spot where lots of people were passing, near the Verona Stadium (a cool Colosseum style ancient building)
