Hi Dragonfly - poledance fans! :-) This time Dragonfly Yogawear Team went to London as a sponsor of World Pole Sports Championships 2013. Part of our team was also Lucie Loo Simkova who won the 1st place in Czech Pole Sports Championship. We went by our Dragonfly Van which took a loooong time but whole crew enjoyed the trip so much! :-) We come up with some pics and info for you.
We started the jurney on Thursday 18th July and went overnight across Germany, Belgium, Netherlands and France. We took a ferry from Calais to Dover in the morning on Friday and finally got to London around noon.
