So we’ve made it to the end of this leg of the tour and I have never seen so much snow in such a short time
As I write we’re in Indianapolis the photos and video were fish ladder park in Grand Rapids
So once tonight is done with there’s no sleep for the wicked – I had a choice of getting a later flight and getting home on Tuesday or leaving literally at the crack of dawn (5:30am including a layover ) to get back “home” tomorrow so being the insane fool I can be I went for that
No more road life now till end of April – I’ll probably be going stir crazy in a few weeks when I am back to the studios base after nearly a year in London and will be climbing the walls
But once April starts it’s all go to the middle of July with festivals and U.K. dates then I’ll be complaining I’ve had enough of touring !!
So the cruise is over and I’m glad to be back on solid ground again
Had a good time and it was certainly an experience not one I’d want to repeat every year though that’s for sure
Half moon cay was a lot better than Nassau and I could relax more – till I got back to ship and drank too much iced water dived in the pool and came up with trapped wind the pain was pure hell
So as I head for Orlando international airport it’s gonna be a long journey home Orlando to Washington to London landing at crazy o’clock Friday morning
Off now till 9th feb and a lot of decorating awaits
So we set off Sunday afternoon bang on time
First night on board was getting my sea legs so to speak and trying to find our way round what is to be home till Thursday
Haven’t slept so well on tour in ages as I did on the boat – whether it was the rocking I don’t know but woke up totally refreshed
Today has been a shore visit to Nassau third time for me here
That was a speeded up sunset on Sunday evening
So the band are headlining tonight and we have a shore day at half moon cay tonight
I love my job but there have been times today when memories sneak out of my eyes and roll down my cheek
So for the 3rd year running being on tour for my birthday was the “thing” though this year I wasn’t leaving till the afternoon.
Thoroughly spoilt Cards alone showed that, present wise case of what didn’t I get from friends and family etc, Soap n glory gift sets, snow white lipgloss, stationary, necklace, sweets, bowie book, keyring, perfume, money box, address book, belt, labyrinth framed print , satchel, cuddly lamb, , and sweatshirt from jilted generation.
Off to Heathrow in the afternoon and onto Newark for a layover then finally got to the hotel around 2am Saturday morning
We have to be at Port Canaveral for 2pm and set sail at 4pm, this is my first ever cruise and a work trip to boot 🙂
Nassau for the day on Monday and I can’t wait
In 5 days roadlife 2018 starts again , well I say starts I have to leave for Florida that afternoon ….. any other time I’d be dying to get back to the band but having to leave on my birthday before I even have time to cut the cake I am not impressed .
Only plus side we are doing a festival on a cruise ship my first one ever so I suppose I shouldn’t grumble too much
Sunday depart port at 4pm
Monday Full day in Nassau
Tuesday Full day in Half Moon Cay
Wednesday full day at sea
Thursday back to port at 8am
Friday back to the UK
Anywhere is better than the cold days of the UK mid 70’s is better than sitting here with the heating on and a hot water bottle to stop the shivers
So expect photos of beaches and oceans lol
