017 – Sacre Noir Summer Tour (from Paris to Preston)

Posted: August 31, 2011 in Uncategorized

Thursday 25th August 2011
An early start today; pack, breakfast, shower and check out… the lifts still aren’t working in Belushi’s but at least we have plenty time to manoeuvre all our gear and are only on the first floor. We’ve booked the Eurostar back to London for 2pm so we’ll get to hang out in London for a few hours.

Discovered a great 50’s style diner called ‘Ed’s’ by Euston station…

It’s a very cool place indeed & the food was great; Burgers, Hot Dogs and classic malt milkshakes. I’m inspired to rock a new 50’s style look – watch this space!
The biggest difference between Paris & London…the weather! It’s at least 10 degrees colder, which isn’t bad but it’s time to dig out the jackets and jumpers again.
Just after 9pm we get the train to Preston to stay with Alexis’s big brother and his wife. The train has very limited space for luggage but at this point I couldn’t care less as I’ve realised there’s no point in getting stressed about anything on tour. Our gear is very heavy and I’m pretty sure no-one is going to want their luggage squished, so we manoeuver it into a tiny space in the isle and as people get off along the way we slowly find space in more appropriate places i.e not in everyone’s way!
We don’t arrive til just after midnight, so a quick chat before heading off to bed… another clean bed in another clean room but this time with no noisy travellers – woop woop!
