The Grolsch Blues Festival in Schoeppingen, Germany, was a great gig to wrap up this European tour. Just look at that crowd. I love every one of them. After the show we enjoyed hanging out with fans and backstage with other musicians we’d crossed paths with before, like Mason Rack and Kenny Neal and their bands. A wonderful meal cooked by our friends the Winter family topped the day off perfectly.
By the time we got back to the hotel I was so exhausted that the next thing I knew I woke up at five in the morning fully clothed with my iPad in my lap, sitting with one ankle crossed over the other knee. I’d slept in that position for four hours.
Today we’re lying low, and tomorrow morning we get up early and fly to Atlanta. We’ve been out seven weeks now and have traveled to six different countries. It’s been tremendous fun and we’ve made a lot of new friends. But I think we’re ready to go home — at least for a week or so.
I’ll wrap this blog up with a couple photos of Mark and me enjoying ourselves last week on a day off in Bruges, Belgium, where the main food groups seem to be chocolate, mussels, french fries, waffles and beer.
