Monique and I go to London for the weekend. We go shopping. It’s our ladies weekend, as our man are on a lads weekend in Budapest. Flight and hotel were already booked.
Then Moricz Mate told me that Mike will be playing in London in The Old Queens Head on April 18th. While I was updating my website, I discovered that we would be in London as well. I was very excited, I’m going.
I saw a message on facebook on June 3rd from de Melkweg. Mike is coming to Amsterdam. He will do a DJ set. FINALLY! Last time he was here for a gig was 2008. 5 years ago, with the Streets. Ted will sort us out again. My boyfriend Mark, his friend Eric and the famous master Ozzy will join me.
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 woke up at about 7am, got the bus to the airport at 7.50. Arrived at the airport at 8.20. Got a Starbucks at the airport and at 8.45 my train left to Rotterdam. Ozzy would pick me up there. We are going to Paris.
It was a last minute add to their tour. They were replacing Q-tip. I found out last week on Sunday that they would be playing there. On Monday Ted arranged it for us. Thanks Ted! Again!
On Saturday, the day before the Streets festival date, we (my mate Ozzy and I) woke up early, left the house quickly after that to go to the airport where we arrived at 10.30.
We got a drink and some food at Starbucks in Lounge 3, but we were so early, as we were checked in online already, we went to do some shopping and got another drink at the Starbucks at the D pier. Then we went back, and then through the luggage check at the H pier. The gate got announced pretty quickly and we waited till the plane arrived. Flight was delayed 20 minutes, but only took like 50 minutes, so that wasn’t too bad.
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.
