Paris, France

Paris. Paris. Paris.

We got soooo much done in Paris. Eiffel Tower! The Louvre Museum and saw the the Mona Lisa and a bunch of other cool stuff! We went to Notre Dame during mass! How cool is that? Anyway we had a really fun day walking and taking the train around Paris. The town is soo pretty (well parts of it). After all that sightseeing my feet were sooooooooo tired. We went back to the hotel and got some pizza and wine and chilled. Hopefully soon Tim can post something about his time in paris at night :) haha

Haarlem, Netherlands

Last night's show was pretty cool. When we first pulled into town we got lost in this weird Labyrinth neighborhood and then finally made it through to the club. On our itinerary it told us that we would park inside the venue.....and we did. It was awesome! you probably don't know how much of a pain it is for a band to pull into a city they have never been before unload equipment and then find a parking spot for the van and a spot where you wont get a ticket or get towed away. The spot we had last night was actually INSIDE the venue. Safe and sound. AMAZING!

We had some delicious beer called Hoegaarden. It tasted like a LOT better version of blue moon. ( I dont like blue moon) Played a good show on a smalllllll stage. But it was fun!

So after the show we got in the van to head to the hostel for the night and tim went out with his cousin who is in the army and is stationed about 2 or 3 hours from Haarlam. Well we gave tim the paper we had with the address on it and he left. Soon after our GPS froze and we had no idea how to get to the hostel. I was feeling really tired so i climbed up into our loft in the van and fell asleep. Turns out the guys spent 2 hours trying to find the hostel and i had no idea. It felt like a 5 min car ride to me!

Anyway, that was Haarlam. Sorry no pictures. yet :)

Prague, Czech Republic

Prague was the most beautiful city i have ever seen in my entire life. Our driver is from around here so he showed us to this restaurant and had the best food i have eaten all tour! We went down to the town square and saw some really cool clock and when it hits every hour the 12 disciples come out through the windows. Pretty awesome.

The show went really well. We met a lot of cool people and had a lot of fun playing!! After the show is when the real party started! We went and checked into our hostel and went to a bar called The Blind Eye. Most of the people from the show were there and we danced until around 5 in the morning. It was AWESOME. Dancing is pretty fun!

Hamburg, Germany/ Berlin, Germany

Right now we are all sitting in the club in Prague. Daniel is playing foosball with our driver Dima who is from around here. This is the first time since hamburg i have been able to get online and post. Sorry for the lack of posts lately.

Hamburg was a lot of fun. I mean a LOT of fun. The club was called Hafenklang Exil. The workers there were very nice. It's amazing how different we get treated in Europe than in America. Its much better in Europe! Ha. We stayed in the clubs apartment downstairs which was really cool. We had a really good crowd turnout. Met a lot of nice people and then we went out on the town.

We went down to the Red Light District in Hamburg. It was about a 10 minute walk from the club. We saw the club that The Beatles first started playing music at. Pretty amazing. We went to this bar and played foosball with some locals and OH MY GOSH!!! I have NEVER seen anybody play foosball like that. Made us look REALLY REALLY REALLY bad. The guy did bank shots off the side and right into the goal. Blew my mind.

Berlin. Berlin. Berlin. Wow. I had the time of my life in berlin. My feet hurt the next morning from dancing so much at the After Party for the show. Before the show we walked around the town a bit in the freezing cold looking at museums and big awesome buildings and water and all that sweet stuff. Berlin is just a beautiful city.

Our friend Allison from Nashville, TN who is now living in Dresden, Germany came out to the show and it was so good to see her. It had been too long! All in all Germany was AWESOME!!! Good beer. Good times.

Copenhagen, Denmark

We are in Copenhagen. Finally! The process getting here was very fun, exciting and interesting. Long plane rides, train rides, van rides and boat rides. As soon as we got off the plane in London Tim got his credit card eaten by a machine. But we all felt better when we found out it was Fashion Week in London. We walked into our hostel for the night/day and there were many many many beautiful women in there. WOOEFK AFOEFALDMF AO F$AO FEAWO FKAOFDALSF KALD FA WOO HOOOOOOO
