My friend Ozzy & I Woke up early to go to the airport. Our plane was supposed to leave at 9:05, but it all took the airport crew a bit longer so it was a little later, Thankfully the flight didn’t take too long.
We arrived very early at Airways hotel Victoria, it was 10.30 and we couldn’t check in until 1.30, Time for breakfast. we were staying in the area of Buckingham palace, so also the prices in the shops/restaurants were for people who could afford that. We had breakfast in a pub for 25 pounds. Not going to do this tomorrow.
When we finished we went to Victoria Station. Laurence would arrive soon. We went to do some window shopping. i didn’t want to spend any money, as I didn’t have much. and breakfast was way more then i could afford. I needed all the money I had for The Streets merchandise.
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
I woke up at Callum‘s place at 6 am, though my head was going to explode. 2 hours later when Laurence and Ozzy were awake, I finally felt better, probably cos I had a shower and I knew I was going to get some food.
We said goodbye to Callum‘s girlfriend Chelsea, poor girl had to work, and we got dressed and ready to leave to the Haymarket train station, Callum was still asleep. We left him a note. We wanted to take the bus, but it was raining, so we took a cab instead. We arrived pretty early, so we had scrambled eggs on toast first and then we got a train earlier. We arrived in Glasgow at about 12.30. Our room in the Thistle hotel was ready so we could check in. Only Ozzy‘s bed was still missing. Got placed later that day. We went to see what the swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna, steam room & sunbed looked like. We spend there a few hours.
Ozzy & I walked to the tram, got on the tram in Amsterdam Osdorp, for a few stops, then the train from Amsterdam Lelylaan to the airport where we arrived at 7.45.
Ozzy brought 1 suitcase which we had to check in, then Ozzy and I went to look for some interesting gadgets which we don’t need and we can’t afford.
At about 10.20 am we were ready to take off. FINALLY! Have been waiting for this for 1 ½ year. A few minutes past 11 we landed and Ozzy got his suitcase, and I got in contact with Shep, Jamie & Callum. Let them know we arrived. Shep & Jamie were in the pub of their hotel, we decided to go there as well, Callum was still working.
At 8.30 I phoned the room of Emma and Emma, I asked them if its ok if we leave at 10 in the morning, cos we had to drop everybody off at a different hotel. They thought that that was fine.
There was 1 Problem, Shep & Jamie were walking around the hotel… and will be back at 11…. hmm…. I asked Emma J. to text them and let them know, and they were up for it…. My own phone was broken so I had a phone from Tmobile I could borrow, but it didn’t work over here. Shep and Jamie came back on time, so at 10 am we were on our way to San Fransisco. Our last journey together.
At 9 in the morning, we checked out and put our luggage in the van, also Jamie‘s and Shep‘s…. They didn’t travel with us, they had a plane to catch. 7 hours drive to go…. Poor Ozzy was driving a very long boring trip. And the ladies (all 3 of us) slept the whole trip)
We heard on the After show last night that the boys were staying at the same hotel as we did. NICE! We didnt see them tho…. anyway…. time to go to LA…. We arrived pretty early…. Rachel dropped Emma off and went to her own hotel/motel/hostel. We were staying in the Wilshire Plaza hotel on Wilshire Boulevard. We checked in. The guy from the reception lied to the ladies. He told them that they had the best room with the best view. They were lookin at Downtown LA. I believe that Ozzy & I had a better room. We had a view at the Hollywood Hills.
