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 :)
