My mate Ozzy and I went to the opening of the first official Apple Store in Amsterdam. In Holland we had a few Mac Houses and iCentres but no Apple Store yet. Now we do, anyways we joined a queue of about 4000 people at 9:50am. The doors opened at 10. And after waiting for 1 ½ hour we got in, we got a lovely orange t-shirt, Nice for queensday people said, but it’s my 4th orange t-shirt so I have enough, nice t-shirt to sleep in. I bought a docking station for my iPhone.
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!
I had to work first from 6am till 12.30. When I finished Ozzy was there to pick me up. (I gave him a coffee, easy when you work at Starbucks). We drove to my house, I got freshen up and changed. Off we go to Pukkelpop.
On our way I got an email from Noucha that she couldn’t make it because she had to be there for her boyfriend. He needed her at that moment. I can’t tell you what happened. but it has something to do with his boss at work.
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.
