Time off in Miami !!!

So Miami has won my heart πŸ’“

When you get a private beach like this from the hotel there’s nothing to do but relax

Was just the time off I need – been able to relax and just chill out , clear my head before moving onto Georgia later today

A career like this would be near impossible to do with kids back home the cats 🐈 cause enough worry at times

Festivals are going well really can’t accept stone temple pilots with an X factor muppet as the lead singer

Bit of course ozzy ruled the evening

And of course Corey is being amazing with the fans.

Oh well back to my overdosing on melon πŸ‰

Daytona Beach πŸ–

So we’ve moved onto Miami , didn’t get to do much in Daytona as there’s not a lot to do if that makes sense

Did have a good night at the Tiki bar as one of the usual band dinners , very impressed with the nemo 🐟 drinks

Day off tomorrow and I’m planning on doing zero with the band – there’s something that is leaving a bad atmosphere behind the scenes that I won’t go into details on here ,

Will be in Miami till late Monday afternoon then off to Georgia – as much as I love my job I am getting so fed up of touring the USA πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ all the bloody time

On the road again πŸ₯ 🎸 πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸŽ€ 🎀 🎡 🚌 πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ πŸ

So after a few months of r and r we’re back on the road for 10 days

Smooth flight ✈️ over from the U.K. to the USA πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ well Atlanta !! Layover and then onto Daytona beach

All the times I’ve flown into or from Atlanta I’ve never worked out what this is on the ceiling

But the little toilet for any furries 🐢 or cat 🐱 that are flying internal was cute toilet 🚽 you lock the door like you would with a human toilet 🚽 and sort your furry person out

Managed to get a decent 9 1/2 hours sleep 😴 obviously needed it but today I’ve felt more than drained than I usually do also feel stressed for some reason so just had a look round the mall

And then walked down to the Main Street and beach where I am now

Band dinner πŸ₯˜ tonight , then we have our first festival of the year tomorrow in Jacksonville 🎡 then onto Miami on Sunday for another festival music 🎢 in Sunrise Florida and some time off – never been to Miami so looking forward to a quickexplore

Up date on the just giving appeal

So we managed to smash the target in less than a week raising Β£104 instead of Β£70 that we hoped for

As it takes 6 working days for them to process the money and get it to my bank account I thought I’d order one to see what they were like and that arrived yesterday

Really pleased with it after spending the morning putting it together which was so easy

Will order the pink and white one next week as as the weather is getting worse with the bloody snow not many deliveries are arriving on time.

And so the end is near…

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 !!

Niagara Falls and Montreal πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦

So we’re back on the road and one word sums things up SNOW ⛄️ SNOW ❄️ AND MORE SNOW ⛄️

have only seen the Falls from the Canadian side and never frozen but it was so pretty

Quick stop in New York and then onto Montreal

Homeward bound πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ ✈️ πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§

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

Days at sea and Nassau

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
