We flew Norwegian Air again from Copenhagen to Split. Amazing airline and many other avid EDM lovers on the flight. Hence the pic of the guys behind us. Most of the passengers were headed to Ultra Europe.
On the flight over from Copenhagen to Split, I wondered how hot the temp would be. Last time I was in
Croatia was in August 5 years ago and it was super hot as in 40c. For those in the States its close to 94 or so and high humidity. This time was no different. The locals informed me of a large heat have that is effecting the countries located in the south of Europe. Croatia, Spain, Italy, France and a few others. On the bus ride into Split main from the airport, it was warm and it reminded me of Florida temps. We were so tired and excited which was pretty funny and at times goofy. We joked about how Stacie would handle camping in a tent as she had never done it before. She was a little worried but DP(Mr. Worldwide) knew she would be just fine.
We took a nice bus from the airport in Split as pictured. We had to then change buses in Split to the Ultra shuttle. The campground was a 45 min bus ride south on the coast from Split which is a port city and the bus had no AC and even with the windows open it was sweatful. When we reached the site, it was great. We could breathe again!
Plenty of room and on the beach. There were bathrooms and showers cleaned every few hours and never a long wait in the morning or night time hours. We met our local tent neighbors-3 guys from Spain, 2 girls from Iceland and 4 guys from France. Everyone of them were awesome! We all had such a blast.
We spent one night at the campsite before the Ultra festival began. This was a learning experience for both of us. I have camped many times growing up but never with these temps or humidity. My fellow Oregonians, I have to say, you haven’t roughed it until you try this…haha
The mornings were very hot and we took naps in the afternoon under the trees at the beach as did many others. Maybe the best naps I have ever had!
There was a shuttle bus that took us back and forth to the festival. Quite funny actually as one night we took the shuttle at 5pm and the crowd was calm but one night we went around 9pm and the crowd was loud and drunk. Amazing how a few hours can make such a difference.The first day of the festival was amazing. We took the shuttle in from the campsite to Split, which was always the same – hot and slow. So much traffic going to the festival.
Time to join the thousands in Split at the stadium for some amazing sounds, crazy pyro technics and the making of more memories. Next post will be of the festival. Ciao
