Had the best time in ages despite the two hour bus 🚌 journey to get there and back
After X amount of years in the music industry once in a while you’ll stay at a hotel that goes the extra mile
Sofitel is that hotel – comfy cosy bed to die for amazingly friendly / helpful staff , just a shame we’re not going to be here longer
Day off to recover from the yucky jet lag so off to Hobbiton and The Shires in a bit ! 2 hour drive but you can’t come all the way to Auckland and not go
Gig Wednesday night and then onto melbourne on Thursday , think I’m going to miss New Zealand 🇳🇿
Well what after what has to be the longest journey to get to the start of the tour in years finally touched down in Auckland an hour ago
Left Heathrow at just gone 10pm Saturday night
Emirates certainly is one of the best airlines to fly with when flying alone they really look after you
Arrived in Dubai Sunday morning for a 2 hour layover of course had to buy a camel 🐫 before 16 hours again with emirates to Auckland landing 1/2 hour early
have to say the blankets provided by emirates and the most comfy cuddly ones I’ve had in ages
On way to hotel now , got couple of days off to explore before the tour starts and then leave for Australia 🇦🇺 on Thursday
When it comes to spoiled cats Elli is the queen of them not just by us but by her kitty friends who send her presents
Though saying that I have spent more time playing with the bubbles that she had than she had they're not like normal catnip bubbles these don't pop for hours !!!!
She even got cake 🎂
Needed some me time so spent the morning at the zoo
Have to say Indy zoo is one of the best I've been to in a while the glass windows are much better for the animals not to mention the kids watching them and not realising how close they get
This little bear was having the time of his life it seems
So we have 3 shows of this tour left and then it’s home sweet home
I will be SO pleased to be away from America – don’t get me wrong I love the country etc but when you go to the same place time after time or are stuck in the middle of nowhere with nothing to do , you do start looking for a jacket you can hug yourself in after a while.
So here we are in Indianapolis , I am mentally and physically drained , I just want 24 hours solid sleep with no one telling me we need to leave for the venue, no travelling through the city to the next location just pure sleep !!!
Of course once I do get home it’s only for 13 days then off to Australia and New Zealand – I think I may as well just spend my life living out a of a suitcase with revolving doors !!!
Don’t get me wrong I love my job it’s just at times like today when pain is kicking in 100% and the last thing I want to do is be dragged sight seeing , here again tomorrow and then off to Missouri,
So had a morning off after getting to Niagara yesterday afternoon haven't been there for years nothing changes lol view from the hotel
falls last night
View from the boat 🚣 which I hated and shot from behind the falls which was really weird !!
6 more gigs to go and then home for 2 1/4 weeks
