A Pause in the Road Trip4Connection (and time to build!)

 I’m trying something new! Writing letters is much more enjoyable than writing on a computer screen, and i often write to my friends around the World – so here’s a letter i wrote to you. I’d love your feedback on whether it works and you enjoy reading articles in this format :0)Some of you paying attention may have noticed that i flew back to London from driving around the World to show how we can all use Public Happiness Activities to tackle any and all social issues. Here’s this letter for you is to explain why i took a break, and where the Movement is right now.(click the photo to scroll and i hope you enjoy the read)

Polish Adventures pt 2 – #PositiveConnectionRoadTrip 2014

 Click here if you missed Part 1 The guys Kuba and Michal arrived and drove me back to Connie from the service station, through a thick fog that had enveloped the land giving it a mystical feeling like something out of Hollywood. We connected some cables and tried to start her from their battery, but with no success. We tied my old slackline between the vehicles, roped a warning triangle to the back of the van and set off. About 30secs later Connie’s battery emptied entirely. The power steering stopped, the power assisted brakes also stopped working and being 3.5 tonnes Connie needs those.

Berlin + They Kidnapped Connie!!!

I arrived and met the guys and girls living there, took a much needed shower to increase the chances they’d want to be my friend, and then walked back to move Connie from 1 street away where i’d parked to the church’s car park ..when I got there Connie had vanished!

Stuck in Paradise pt 3 (Slovenia)

We climbed into the the Tow truck, passengers on the biggest circus of the day in Slovenia. i’m surprised we didnt make the national news, maybe we did, as the Tow Truck drove passed carrying Connie the Connector high in the air – our large van, covered in colourful and happy paintings

Pillow Fights 4Connection+Open Skills Sharing in Linz, Austria

The weather was wonderful and the people of Linz were sunny and smiley. It may have been a more laid back city than the last stop in Klagenfurt, or perhaps it was just the perfect weather and its warm effect on people; but regardless everyone seemed happy to see us. Me and Katarina started off our stay in Linz with a Pillow Fight 4Connection, by the river – inviting all the people there, and passing by to come and join in the fun with us, and to connect with each other using a friendly Pillow in the Face as our tool of choice.

Give a Bubble in Klagenfurt

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.
