Finally arrived – New Zealand πŸ‡³πŸ‡Ώ


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 πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί on Thursday

And now the end is near…………


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 !!!

OfΒ 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,


Niagara Falls πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦


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
rainbow bridge

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

New York day one πŸ—½πŸ—½πŸ—½


Well finally got some time off away from the band so shot over to NYC to catch up with old friends

Bit of retail therapy on Sephora
Ok I say a bit I may have slightly got Carried away , snack at bubba gump and then back to the hotel before a night at the theatre

Went to see Charlie and the Chocolate factory with Christian Borle as Wonka and it was brilliant also cheaper than seeing Bette Midler in Hello Dolly
Off to Empire State Building and Central Park today then have to rejoin the band in Philadelphia tonight SOB

Minneapolis πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡ΈΒ 


Well we’re back on the road again first 3 days are festivals to ease us in gently 

Quite cute hotel for part of the “W” range ! 

Though when you realise that the drinks have a tag round them in the mini bar πŸ₯ƒπŸ·πŸ₯‚πŸ»πŸΊπŸΈπŸΉπŸΎ $5 for a bottle of water πŸ’¦ is more than a rip off πŸ˜’

Been killing the jetlag with a bit of sight seeing this morning 😴🀀😴🀀first stop was the Sculpture Garden 

The tree 🌲 full of wind πŸ’¨ chimes was way too much lovely 😊 idea but with the non stop sound of bells πŸ”” way too much 😱

Next thing was the giant blue cock πŸ”πŸ“ anyway moving on πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ€£πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰ did love the cherry πŸ’ and spoon πŸ₯„ fountain thing as well 

Went from there to Minnehahafalls found myself a new friend in frankie the dog 🐢 

 The waterfall was pretty but made me look for the toilets 🚽 on more than one occasion pmsl 🀣

There were a couple of creepy sights 

Think that is meant to be Hiawatha with the trees 🌲 as his hair , place was over run with chipmunks 🐿 as well 

Onto Oshkosh tomorrow no rest for the wicked
