I woke up at 7ish, cos Mark had to go to work, I had some stuff to do at my house, cos I have hardly been in for the last month. When that was done I watched “Step up”. I love that movie. I love Channing Tatum it was finished just before 9:30am, a couple minutes later Ozzy arrived. Just before 10am we left to get the bus to the airport. We checked in online already, we only had hand luggage (That was a tip we got from Mike in Solana Beach), so we got through very quickly.
I am going to the very last gig of The Streets at Big Reunion, the 2nd weekend. It will be my 35th Streets gig, but the last one. I am not to sad, cos I am very excited about whatever Mike is going to do next.
Ozzy & I woke up at 7ish. Took a shower and we got the bus at 8.20 to the airport. We are going to see The Streets in Battersea.
We had our boarding passes already, and only hand luggage as we were only going for 1 night. We got through the passport check to Starbucks in lounge 3 and when we finished our coffee we went through the luggage check. We were boarding at 9.30 and just after 10 the plane left. We arrived at Gatwick at 10 (English time). We got the Gatwick Express to Victoria Station on our way, we passed Battersea, we saw the festival & the Snowboard ramp already.
I had the flight at 9.40 from Amsterdam, well it was 50 minutes delayed, but finally at about 11 I arrived in Birmingham.
The scary thing is, I have thought for months that I would arrive at 11, while on my boarding pass it said 10am. And in the end it was 11 anyway. When I told Burke, he wanted to know the winning numbers for the lottery haha
On Friday, Laurence came to my work to pick me up, she stayed at mine cos we had to get the plane on Saturday morning. Also Ozzy stayed at mine, he arrived a little bit later.
On Saturday we woke up at about 6.30am, cos we had to get the train to the airport at 7.30am. We checked in online. We arrived very early at the Brittania hotel, but no worries, we still needed breakfast, and the hotel was in the middle of a shopping mall, so we had time to go shopping as well. Ozzy and I couldnt check in before 2.30, but there was a room free for Laurence, so we dumped our stuff in her room. After breakfast and shopping we checked in, and got ready to go to the venue.
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.
