Busking in Göteborg

On Haga
It was a really pleasent experiance playing in this city. Sometimes we made more sometimes we made less, but we always got positive reactions. :) In the first week... Than when we came back from Norway it was really hard to make enough money for the ferry to Germany. We had to stay two weeks to get out of Sweden. Maybe because we couldn't play with joy anymore, and we are bored with the songs, we're playing, so it's time to change the list very soon.
Sunny day
on the First week
We heard that in Haga, you can play without any permit, but in other parts of the city you have to get one, but actually nobody does anything so everybody is playing everywhere. :)

Our experiance:
first we played in the shopping street but after 3 songs a guard came out and told us to leave. I don't like playing in the big shopping streets. They are too crowded and noisey and people are always in a hurry and most of them would not stop to listen unless you are loud or have an unusual act. We are none of these things :P

So we went to play in Haga. It's the old part of Göteborg, usually full of turists. The first week was wonderful. We made in 1-1/2 hours around 200-400 crowns(about 20-50 euros). But in the last two weeks as we played more and more we got less and less money. In the end we didn't really make anything, but we weren't the only ones with empty pocket. People just stopped paying the street musicians on the Haga Nygata street. 

We decided to go to the Shopping mall(Nordstan) and play there. The average money was aroud 100-150 crowns in a bit more than half an hour, so at least there we could make enough for the tickets. 

Best places to play:
-Shopping streets in the center
-Shoping mall Nordstan

3 months in some minutes

I haven't been outside the house for the last 3 days because I have a bit of cold but now it's nothing serious. And in my free time I've made a short movie about the last 3 months we spent around Europe. We would like to say thanks to those who helped us on the road. There are too many names that would have to be mentioned, and the list is still growing and growing. :) Hope one day we will be the ones who will help those who need it.

We also would like to inspire people to follow their dreams and show them everything is possible and help other travelers make their journey easier . :)

This is my very first video I've ever made on Earth :P we don't have any recorded song in good quality so I decided to use the song 'Guarenteed' by Eddie Vedder instead. It's a very beautiful song with meaningful lyrics. Enjoy it! :)

Shape of my heart(Sting cover)

We spent the last some weeks in Skandinavia. We visited Göteborg, Oslo and we camped a bit next to The Norwegian fjords, than we came back to Göteborg, so we've been very busy recently :P I didn't have any time to update the blog, but this week I probably will have some time to work on the blog a bit :)

This video was recorded in Münich about 2 months ago by a nice guy(Andrey) who was walking with his friends in the English Garden and he sent us this link with the video some days ago. Thank you for posting it!:)
The quality of the video is pretty good. Enjoy!:)
