‘What a difference a day makes, 24 little hours’ or so someone once said… well, after nearly 24hrs on a coach complete with Back To The Future Trilogy, Godzilla and Men In Black DVDs there was little change in the enthusiasm of our group. While traveling overnight had mixed rewards in terms of sleep and sleeping arrangements, the boys were very excited to know that we had finally entered Spain and were nearly at our host town, Calella.
We arrived at our hotel and the boys were very patient while we allocated room numbers and told them their rooming buddies. A quick turn around later and the group were swimming in the warm blue Mediterranean sea and/or lounging on the yellow sands of the blue flag beaches of Calella. Some of the boys were amazed that there were fish inhabiting the same waters as them…and that they were too fast to catch! The comments quickly turned to ‘what would we be doing now if we were in England?’ with various answers serving to illustrate that the long journey was well and truly worth it.
After swimming we returned to the Hotel to eat supper and hear the itinerary for the following day before heading out into the town to see where we will be playing tomorrow and to sample the shopping delights of this amazingly vibrant town. Some boys are currently playing football while others have decided to retire to their rooms for the night.
Tomorrow we head to Barcelona to ride the cable car and experience Las Ramblas before our first show of the tour. We are all really excited (and really ready for a sleep in a bed!).
We will update you as soon as we get a chance on this action-packed music tour.
