All to get to London

58 days into the trip with 11 cities under my belt I was ready to get to London to work with an old friend to create a new story, an addition to project1979, a continuation to the process.

Like a good adventure, it didn’t really work out how I had imagined. However, it is a good story to tell. And, as the travel is big part of how project1979‘s delightfully ephemeral transformation, I thought I’d show how an eight hour car ride turned into a 20 hour experience.


I decided to experience a ride share.

And I was off. To Zaventum, a little town out of  Brussels where I would meet Rebekka and a friend who would pick me up and we would be on our way to London!

I was prepared and had the directions each place I had to be, even down to my friend, Trey’s apartment in London.

I waited.

My view for 2 hours.

I found a WiFi connection, Skyped said Rebekka and she was “on her way”. 10 minutes!

An hour later I decided to get some food and was offered some tea.

After making some friends,

and seeing a cool toilet seat,

I returned to my post and waited.

Rebekka never showed.

I took the train back to Brussels.

I was tired.

I went to Brussels Noord Station in hopes of finding a bus.


So I took a train to Brussels Midi station to see what I could do.

No trains.

Just coffee.

I decided on a night bus. My friend and project1979 salon host came to meet me and we had fun.

Anna took me to the station. It was an interesting group.

We were off.

I thought I would sleep.

But with all the controls, stops, aggressive passport discernment and the ferry:

And yet another control.

And a very project1979 gambling machine at Customs.

I was so tired.

Finally we made it to London:

I said goodbye to the friends I made on the trip (photo: Markus, 1980) who are doing work for Africa:

Got on my way to Hackney.

And arrived safely at my home for the next 9 days.

To the adventure…
