Continuation of week 0.
The Stream Festival is a free open air festival in Linz with its main stage parallel to the Danube’s riverside. Amazing venue without barriers, so people could just come and sit on the riverside and enjoy the concerts even with their own drinks. Our favorite band of the festival was without doubt Lola Marsh from Israel.
A weekend later (our last weekend in Linz) Bubble Days took place in the Linz Harbor. The weather was fantastic so we could enjoy lots of attractions as pump truck for skateboarders and a virtual reality game. I (Olga) took part in a SUP Challenge with the SILK Fluegge Team. We didn’t win but, we were the only female team and had lots of fun!
Bubble days was not only a leisure time for me. Together with SILK Fluegge B- Girl Circle Project we performed 4 times and organised workshops. It was a total success!
Organizing all the farewell parties we could’t forget about our little ones and their parents. So, on our last Sunday in Linz we organised family meeting with hand made pierogi. While the ladies (polish clan) were preparing pierogi, the kids with their fathers/”uncles” were playing at the playground. We had a great Sunday afternoon with 5 kiddos, their parents and friends.

The last Freistädter (Beer)
We couldn’t leave Linz without a last Freistädter beer with friends at OK Platz. We were running out of time with packing and rearranging the apartment, but we managed to go out and have a nice summer evening in the city center of Linz and say a proper good bye to our dear friends!
