Half way through the charity tour

2014. július 8.

On June the 20th, after kayaking for two weeks, the Vitez Kurtos Team – the dreamers of this charity expedition - , has finally sailed into Budapest. The participants of this mission completed 1000 kilometres and paddled through three capital cities. The tour will continue in August.

After Vienna, Bratislava and the Hungarian capital city they only need to take in Belgrade. Cyclists joined at Vienna and followed the heroes – united as a team on water and on land -, all the way to Kopaszi-gat.

“The start of the journey was hard. We struggled; our palms were sore from rowing 70-75 kilometres a day. It was very tiring, but we got over the difficulties. We both lost at least 3 kg and we`ve got stronger, shoulders wider - although you may don`t see that yet” – laughed Gaspar, who gave his best, and performed at a super level throughout this tour. An “S” bend in his paddle shows his enthusiasm.

The Vitez Kurtos Team began their conquering tour in June, starting from the Black Forest, planning on going all the way to the Black Sea by their kayak, to support a small, under developed town, C.A. Rosetti and the four nearby villages with a defibrillator, upon arriving to the Danube Delta. Also another purpose of the tour is, to familiarize the traditional, Transylvanian delicacy to everyone on the way.

“We work very well as a team with Gaspar, this is not our first adventure, and therefore we know each other very well. However, it happens that even we don`t agree on certain things, we have different opinions, but we work through them and solve issues quickly. The hardest moment for me was when the Danube blossomed, therefore needed an awful lot of effort to get through that stage. Perhaps it would have been easier to get through the plants with a pitchfork other than the paddle” – said Gyula F. Balint with a zesty attitude, who was in awe of the mesmerizing landscapes and beautiful castles on the “road”.

“We were surprised by how many people knew of the chimney cake abroad, and it`s not an exaggeration when I say that they enjoyed our tasty cakes so much – it was finger licking good. The afternoons were always a little more difficult, but we`ve still managed to bake some chimney cakes and was glad to see the happy faces of the locals” – adds Gaspar, who thought the daily routine was the most difficult to overcome.

The team will stop and rest for a while, but will continue with their journey in August, when they will be joined by the honorary member of the Vitez Kurtos Team, Attila Donka. The “gallants” still have to kayak another 1640 kilometres to reach the Danube Delta by the end of August. The documentary of this journey will be presented on the II. Chimneycake Festival, between the 10th and 12th of October.

Hm! Prepare your taste buds for something really cool!
