|03|08|08| arrived vienna about 4.30h for a little coffee break with finest vienna bakery stuff. left vienna @6h towards split/croatia. reached split about 15.30h but missed the ferry. a truck lost some boxes of mineral water just infront of us... so we had to clean the road to go on... thx to niere :) (just a hint... beware of very fast cars in the croatian mountains... really dangerous roads&drivers there) while waiting for the ferry we took a short visit to the old town of split an had a nice "sit in" with some italian guys. we also visited an internet cafe to get some more info about the location of Video.Lab.Camp, but we were not lucky. @20h the ferry left split towards island VIS. on the boat we met Tom, a guy from Briston/London, related to ninjatune. @22:30h we arrived @ island VIS, but still had no idea where to go. finally we arrived the camp @ 23:15 ... 27h after we left ilmenau and crossing the island once. after checking in checking out the partyside till 4h. VJ's were performing visuals with 6 beamers all around the dancefloor. Live house and chillhouse music by italian & croatian guys. (very smooth :)
