I took the bus from Haarlem to the airport. My plane left at 9am. At 9 am English time I arrive at Gatwick. and about 45 minutes later Emma picked me up with her sister and little niece Evie. and we went to Emma‘s house. I stayed at her house that evening.
I woke up at 5am at home in Haarlem. I had to go to work (Bloomberg in Amsterdam) I took the night bus. I was in a hurry ‘cos I brought something from work with me, so I had to give it back and after that I needed to go to my other place (Nestlé) also by bus and metro, where I also work.
I worked with Edith that morning. At 12.30pm my other colleague was there, so I could get changed and take the train to Tilburg, where Ozzy would pick me up.
We woke up at about 9am at my uncle’s house in Amsterdam. We all took a shower, my uncle gave us some breakfast. Bless him. And at about 10.45am we were in the car on our way to Luxembourg. Laura, Ozzy & I arrived there at the Threeland Hotel within 4 hours. Then we grabbed our stuff, that we needed for the gig and took the car into town.
I had to work till 1ish in the afternoon. 12 more hours to go until the gig. I needed to do some shopping for a new outfit. before I went home in Haarlem. I went to Wonder Woman in Haarlem. Next to V&D (V&D and Wonder Woman no longer exists). I bought a new coat, scarf, jumper & a pair of leggings, then I went home, got changed, grabbed my stuff and left to Amsterdam by train.
I wanted to go to Reading and Leeds festival to see The Streets, haven’t seen them since August last year, my best friend Ozzy needed a proper summer holiday, euhm a proper summer holiday in England? Yeah why not…. we decide to plan that holiday in England, around this festival. The Streets never played at that festival this year.
Luckily, the same weekend they were playing at Carling metro weekender in Cardiff & London. Great! because we already took time off work for these 2 weeks.
After our gig in Amsterdam, we were very excited and wanted more gigs. We checked the internet and we found the France gig, that the girls we met in Amsterdam, were going to. We googled more and we found a gig in Luxembourg.
