|Saying goodbye to Denmark, |
Molly thought we were there to play with her!!
We've driven almost 6000 kms (about 3,700 miles), been through France, Germany, into Denmark, back down into Luxembourg, had lunch in Belgium on the way to the ferry and now back to Ireland. Not once did we spot another right hand drive car until we pulled up at check in last night.
We've played 13 concerts in churches, theatres, clubs, pubs and houses and even in an aircraft hangar - met old friends all over the place and made many new friends. Practised our French and Germany, learned a few words in Danish and were impressed by the Luxemburgers who as a matter of course speak 3 languages, oh and plus English naturally! Many of them speak 5 languages seamlessly.
We've kept company with cats and dogs as well as friends and sold lots of CDs. All the concerts were really well received and we're well pleased with the tour in general.
|Got her to sit down this time - with Kanne from Sommersted, Barney from Kiel and Tom and myself, |
bags packed and ready to head down into Germany again
But most of all I'm looking forward to sleeping in my own bed - a different bed each night, even though they were all comfy and lovely beds, checking the layout of the room before going to sleep in case I need to get up in the middle of the night without tripping over something, becomes a bit unsettling. However we are now experts on both showers and beds and mattresses - so if you need any advice about the best ones to get, I'm your man!!
I'll be back with some pictures from the trip in coming weeks - memories for my own historical records department ...
