Blog: Stuck on the road in Romania

It was very nice to start this journey from Czech Republic, because
we felt very comfortable there in a big rehearsal room and with people
taking care of us, that we have known for several years already. The
shows in Zlin and Pardubice were amazing. I was happy to realize that
there were lot more people in the shows than in my previous visits, so I
can only be grateful for that. We performed couple of new songs from my
future album in those shows already. It was exciting to see if people
were accepting them. It looked and felt pretty much like a great
success.



There was no free time apart from having a lunch or dinner break
since I got to Czech. I took the only chance I got to see something in
Pardubice. It was a very windy day, but the old city is beautiful.



I was expecting to have a good time in Poland and I was not wrong.
The fan club people had made us Polish flags with all of our names and
hanged them on the walls at the venue when we arrived there. It was a
nice gesture from them. I have been trying to say at least few words in
every country in their language during the concerts, sometimes with
better luck sometimes not… Gosh, aren’t these languages hard?! But it is
rather remarkable to see the reaction of the people when they
understand me We had lots of fun in Poland with the audience.



I was quite excited to hear one day before the show in Vilnius
Lithuania that it was sold out on my first visit there. Great! The venue
was modern and very clean.



Unfortunately there was again NO time to see the city since we
arrived in the morning and there are always too many things to do before
the show. I have to be patient to wait for my return to be able to see
the city of Vilnius. Everyone that I know and who has visited it says it
is beautiful. Mike said after the concert to me that he had felt how
the people in the audience really wanted to see us, wanted us to be
close and have fun with them. We felt really welcomed.

I have always have troubles to sleep in the bus while it moves, so
this time the beginning hasn’t been any exception. I whether need to
wear earplugs, listen music or drink a half bottle of red wine (which I
never do if there is a show on a next day
) to be able to sleep at least few hours. Well, the journey from
Vilnius to Vienna was very looooooong. Finally when we arrived to the
hotel in Vienna I could close my eyes and get some rest. Even though I
have pretty awesome place in the bus this time. Here for you to see; my
private lounge. Quite nice isn’t it?



The show in Vienna was nice and people were very warm to us. I hope I
can return soon with my new album in Austria. It was my dream country
when I was young and had my first concert there on my European tour with
my high school choir. The lovely country of Mozart!



Finally it was a relief to perform again in Slovakia. We had a bad
experience in the past due to an irresponsible promoter. But this time
the show happened as expected and we had a great time. Here the
Slovakian fans are doing the “hands up” thing



How happy I was when we arrived to Slovenia in the midday and I could
walk to the city of Ljubljana while the sun was shining. So the day was
perfect.



I have always loved Ljubljana. I like the size of the city, ‘cause
it’s rather small and the combination of its modern and old
architecture. It is also a very clean city and obviously the Slovenians
should be very proud of what they have. Even our modern venue made me a
good impression.



There I could for the first time do what I would have loved to do
everywhere; sing among the people. It was so cool to see the reaction of
the people when I went down the stairs and started walking right
through them, singing. I just love to do these kinds of surprises in my
shows.

I had only once been in Croatia before so I was excited about my
return. The people were SO loud during the concert that sometimes I had
hard time hearing my own voice!!! Well I loved it though! Zagreb, thank
you for your support.



After the concert we knew that the journey to Romania would be long,
but no one would have expected that it was this long. Actually it took
us 28 hours to get to Bucharest from Zagreb! Can you imagine that? Well
there were 3 border checks, one ferry and a snowstorm that all delayed
our trip with at least 16 hours.

When we arrived to Bucharest in the morning at 06:00 I was so glad
that we made it in time for the show. And the show was awesome! I got
totally surprised by the amount of people in the packed hall.



I also discovered a very nice grand piano at the backstage, so I wanted to use it during my show.



Everyone in the band was happy about the show.

What we didn’t expect was about to happen.

Now where I am writing you this post is quite interesting. I am in
only 20 km from Bucharest at a gas station, sitting in my lounge alone
and waiting. We heard last night that there is a huge snowstorm between
Bucharest and Sofia and that ALL the roads are blocked, basically closed
for traffic. There have been several truck accidents and those are
still blocking all the traffic. We waited for further advice from the
promoter of Sofia who left just couple of hours before us, but who
needed to stop his journey as well because of the same storm. Even our
support bands are at the same gas station where we have been now for
more than 20 hrs! What a mess.



The show in Sofia has been postponed for tomorrow and we are doing
everything possible with the promoter to make it happen. It’s like a
worst nightmare. Luckily we have electricity, water and supplies here
for us, so that everyone is ok. I will let you know immediately when I
have further news.

With love, Tarja

Nu are legatura cu vremea daca mai vine sau nu in Romania. S-au intamplat si chestii mai aiurea, de exemplu anul trecut s-au dus pana in Slovacia si cand au ajuns au aflat ca promoterii au anulat concertul. Acum au cantat din nou, dar au schimbat promoterii. Zapada nu e vina nimanui si nu inseamna ca nu mai vin din cauza asta. Smile
