The first time…By Florian Mueck • Jul 24th, 2011 • Category: Cuisine Theme, The Project, Top News
Do you remember your first time? Do you remember the innocence you felt before? Do you remember the insecurity you sensed not being sure whether you were doing the right thing?
You did it anyway.
When we did it for the first time on that beach of Barcelona on July 23 2011 we’d had the same feelings. Insecurity, innocence, doubt. But - we did it anyway.
Today, one day later, we are more than happy about it.
After almost five years of moving this European project online and in face-to-face meetings only, we invited Europe fans to The Festival. One Day, One Europe - a European picnic on the beach.
In the end we were some 80+ The Festival lovers from Spain, Italy, Poland, the UK, Germany. But also Europe lovers from Peru, Colombia, Canada, …
It’s a first step. Even if there were no grass roots on that beach, we all could feel them. We all made new friends. We all loved the spirit. We all promised to spread the word. This is how a movement of ideas turns into a movement of hearts.
It was our first time. It will not be the last time. With the time you gained security, confidence, know-how. We are on the same track.
Thanks to all first timers! Thanks to all The Festival supporters!
