Almost in Katowice

We've experienced horizontal rain all the way from Warsaw. We are now 10 km from Katowice for our overnight stop. ETA 6:43pm. Temperature: 9.5 degrees. Feels like autumn, but we expect better weather as from tomorrow ;).

Driving tomorrow to Prague, but first a nice dinner and a good sleep.


Day 2 --- Warsaw Event

We just finished the Graffiti Event in Warsaw. It was a great experience; Graffiti artists and body paints in one of the most trendy clubs of Warsaw. Our local marketing team did a great job and we enjoyed every minute of it. We are now heading for Prague, passing by some great Graffiti...:-)

Driving goes very smoothly. No highways in Poland so far, hopefully from Poznan to Warsaw.

Graffiti event in Cyprus last Sunday

On Sunday 29th of August, our team in Cyprus organized a massive event to launch Canyon's limited edition.
The super popular Guaba Beach Bar and famous DJ Myon & Shane took part and entertained the crowd. Three TV channels were there as well as several photographers. The crowd was on fire and kept asking for more! We heard it was memorable. We wish we were there!
