Picos da Europa expedition 2015: T-0 day


This post is part of a series that briefly describe an inspiring expedition to Picos da Europa, Spain, during the Spring of 2015. The complete series follows:


 

Getting soooo close I can almost smell it 🙂 (as in the cold air in the high mountains)

with hours left to the beginning of the journey there is not much left to prepare:

  • post-its with the last minute items, with a LARGE one for the films that I keep in the freezer (hmmm now that I mention this it may be worth a post explaining why…)
  • GPS tracks inserted
  • Technical backpack ready to go
  • Tripod
  • Clothes and personal items also packed and ready to go
  • Snacks and water ready to jump into the cooler (close to the films 🙂 )

I guess that my biggest challenge for the day will be to get some sleep, as tomorrow’s 900 km trip will certainly make a dent.

Tomorrow the official expedition start will be in Lisbon, right next to the biggest Portuguese flag and in the day of Portugal.

Parque Eduardo VII, Lisbon, Portugal.

Once again, Portuguese will launch in conquering mode, into our neighboring country Spain. This time though, we are going tin peace capturing the landscape in film or digital.

‘Till next post!
