Leeds to Brighton ๐ŸŒŠ

So the U.K. tour rambles on !! Prefer being back in the uk as means there are some places close enough for me to drive to and from home for ๐Ÿš˜

Haven’t been to Leeds for ages so go off on a Starbucks โ˜•๏ธ hunt and promptly get lost

Show went well even though the fans moan about arenas I can understand what they’re saying as I rather have up close and personal than back of the gods so to speak

4 1/2 hours by road down to Brighton hell its cold on the coast lol โ›„๏ธ โ„๏ธ after snow in Leeds it didn’t seem to follow us down the motorway

Weekend off so will get home ๐Ÿ  then 2 London shows Cardiff and Glasgow next week before back across the sea ๐ŸŒŠ

So the tour reached the French capital playing at the one venue I’d been dreading after losing my best friend there in an attack 2 years ago

Even had a chat with a sad pigeon and gave it both my pastries as it had lost a foot

There hasn’t been a day like yesterday when I’ve cried that much in decades everything suddenly hit me like a steam train ๐Ÿš‚ just how much I miss him but I came and did what I had to do and said my goodbyes

Today was a day off (Saturday) so what else to do Christmas shopping Parisian style

So we hit the champs elysees with gusto lol ๐Ÿ˜†

Louis Vuitton. Tiffany’s Stopping to see some Christmas ๐ŸŽ„ horses ๐Ÿด as well as lunch at Paul’s followed by a trip up the Eiffel tour

Back to the hotel for a quick change and back out to see the lights So all in all it’s been a great day

Finally get a day off tomorrow but it’s a 36 hour visit to the U.K. for me due to appointment that can’t be changed

So we leave for a night travelling by tour bus in 1/2 an hour – 14 hours on the road to Frankfurt lol
