As you get to Playa, whole World is yours to explore
You probably heard there are no words to describe what is going on at the festival, and I will repeat that one more time, it’s not just a festival, it’s family, it is Home, it really feels this way.
It was my very first Burn and before going there I tried to prepare myself as good as I only could, I digged for any information about how to survive at Burning man, so I wasn’t surprised when I finally got there (I wish I was), but the feeling I got was so strong that I’m at the right place where I belong to… It is really hard to explain, you need to feel it.
It was a very spontaneous preparation and trip by itself, I’ve planned everything and got my ticket maybe 5 days before, I was lucky to meet good people and join their camp and help to build it, even if I didn’t know any of them before (it was kind of an adventure for me as well, but that’s another story).
What I learned being there, you need always to be prepared. I never left “home” without my backpack, goggles, respirator, water bottle, my iron cup which I got from an old hippie guy on Playa as a gift and something worm for the night time. Because you literally don’t know where you will start your day and where you will finish it, especially because you don’t even want to sleep, I’m serious, you need to force yourself to sleep sometimes.
Black Rock City is a very special and magical place, it can sound a little too cheesy, but you can literally feel the energy of this place. I don’t know how, but everything you want, everything you desire and wish for just happens or comes to you, I don’t even know how it works, but it does.
Burning man festival is very different for everyone, you will find what you want to, some people come here for music, some for art, adventures or simply finding themselves. Personally for me this journey was very special and even healing I dare to say, I found answers for some very old questions and feel peaceful and “reborn” now. Playa also taught me a very important lesson –
“if you walk away – never turn back”
” I got there spontaneously but it turns out I needed that so much. It is truly a very spiritual place where you see magic around yourself.
What you seek is seeking you…
