B2K2 - A journey to the Balkans in the summer of 2002

In the beginning of the rainy summertime year 2001 a bunch of Finnish travel enthusiasts were going around the Baltic states by a car. Finally on the way back home, enjoying the last night of the trip on the beach of the Latvian Baltic sea, they came up with an idea of spending one month in the Balkan peninsula, with a minibus. It all should have been just a nice little joke, but no, the idea caught the gang with it and little by little became a more serious plan finally leading to purhasing the blue minibus.

"Training season" for the Balkan tour in the early summer of 2002 showed high-level feeling as we made some weekend trips to rock festivals etc. and noticed the strenghtened travelling fever every day, despite of couple of mighty technical drawbacks with the old bluewing bus.

Anyways, willingness to see the whole Balkan region with its history centuries old and on the other hand the events that happened in our time did not let us escape but merely draw towards the roads less traveled. Anxious planning either over the e-mail or on the shores of eastern Helsinki with the maps and catalogues acted as the first round of the experience offering so much to wait for.

Vacation season came early one morning in August when the bluewing at last showed its capacity as the full-loaded carrier for the laid-back travellers. This was the beginning of the Balkan 2002 tour – B2K2 tour.
