They were not ready to give me any information and explained to me that they would only answer to a lawyer as it was an ongoing investigation about an attempted robbery. After a few phone calls, fuelled with coffee and Advil, I managed to get a hold of a lawyer that was willing to get on the case on a Saturday morning. To make a long story short: the lawyer was able to find out that the cab driver that couldn’t speak English was trying to get his fare, which he didn’t get paid, due to the confusion he’d caused himself. A few hours later we were all packed up, laughing about last night’s
events and in the vans and heading towards Prague for the last stop of the Thrash and Burn trip. We had two great days with the crew in Prague, luckily without any further incidents and ended the trip on a good note. I hopped on the train to Vienna to meet up with Vans Euro crew to check up with them and enjoy the last three days of the trip. All my worries of not being there for most of the trip were instantly set aside whilst we were all sharing our experiences of the past few days at dinner in a traditional schnitzel restaurant in Vienna. I stepped outside for a smoke and watched the crew through the window from the outside.
