From the bowl in Sondika, Basque country then in the direction Torrelavega, in Cantabria, at Captain Jairock’s place and museum. And tattoo studio. Open till 3am. Custom BCT designs. Patina o muere!
Aughhhhh! Damn, really a lot of creativity came out at this point of the trip. A lot of art, drawings and sketches at Capi’s house, and we created also the official song for the tour… then wait… we started the trip with four people in one van… By the time we got to Torrelavega we were already 14 people with three vans… Marco and David from Stuttgart become part of the crew, then Chetos, Torso, Capi, Pepe, Avo, Iosu… people taking part of the adventure then leaving, till Gijón and Valleverde / Villaviciosa. Playa España at the AK55 bowl and hostel. Gus and his family are the best… and sorry man if we arrived there with too much energy hehe… it was such a crazy night and session at AK55! After the Gijón day, everyone else got back to their normal life, except for us, just four people again, in one van, and 1700 km to drive back to Italy, straight again.
Check the video and the credits because it’s really too long of a list to say thanks to everyone!
