Staffordshire, England, 22 August 2009
Ozzy and I woke up really early, my brother Paul picked us up from Bloemendaal and brought us to the airport. Bless him. He had to work there. We didn’t have the tickets yet, hope it will be OK at the festival with our order confirmation. Ted said it would ok.
Newquay, England, 7 August 2009
On Twitter I asked Mike what to do: Rock Werchter or Newquay? Rock werchter was on July 3rd. Wireless was on July the 4th. I already booked everything for Wireless. Might have been a struggle to get from Belgium to England in time for both festivals but I would have tried, but Mike’s answer on Twitter made me change my mind.
Emma said to me, READ TWITTER NOW!
Kendal, England, 31 July 2009
“Kendal is calling me”, Mike tweeted, it called us as well. We’re going to Kendal Calling festival.
The night before the gig Laura, Ozzy & I took the train from Bloemendaal (train stop is only 3 minutes walk from my villa) to the airport. We flew to Liverpool, John Lennon Airport. We stayed in Holiday Inn Express hotel there, as we arrived very late. We rented a car last night.
Dusseldorf, Germany, July 25th 2009
Ozzy & I went from Bloemendaal to Dusseldorf early in the morning to go to a camping and set up the tent. We found the Strandbad Nord Unterbach camping, we set up the tent and it started raining a lot. We still had to bring in our sleeping stuff. Oh well after a few minutes it was dry again and the sun was shining. So we could finish it. In the meanwhile, I had contact withLaurence, She let me know that Laurie wouldn’t join us as she didn’t feel too well,Laurence was coming alone. At about 1pm we arrived at the festival, and I textLaurenceto let her know where we were.
Cuxhaven, Germany, 18 July 2009
Ozzy woke me up by sending me a text a couple weeks ago and asked me if I wanted to go to this festival called Deichbrand, I said no, half asleep. Then Ozzy said, but I would like to give the ticket for your birthday. I started waking up, sort of… and asked: Is Mike playing there? Ozzy said yes, of course, otherwise I wouldn’t ask, duh! I thought it was better not to go, as we need to save money for the USA tour. (a couple days ago we decided to go to America for the boys in October).
