Up early and drove to Erfurt. We went to the KIKA studios and filmed a live tv show called Kikania. We also had a documentary crew follow us around all day filming what we get up to. There were fans sitting around in the lobby waiting to catch glimpses of us and we signed lots of autographs and had lots of photos taken.

The show went really well. Then we drove to Cologne. We had dinner at a place called the Potato House which was really nice. Then we drove onto Munich

Got up and went straight to a photo shoot with YAM Magazine. We wore our costumes and they took lots of individual and group pictures. Then we went back to our hotel and said goodbye to Ingo our Coach Driver who has been driving us all over Germany. There were more fans at the hotel which was nice, so we spent some time with them. The weather turned a bit cold and we caught taxi’s into Munich for some lunch/afternoon tea at 5.00pm. The waiter at the restaurant didn’t think we’d have enough time to eat before they closed but we’re getting pretty used to a rushed schedule and we’d finished in 10mins! Talk about fast food…

After that we went into the town centre and saw the Glockenspiel which is a big clock that is sort of like a Cuckoo Clock. It has figurines that move around and chimes a tune on the hour. We really wanted to see it and we waited around for about 1/2 an hour waiting for it to go, until someone told us it only goes once a day at 11am. Oh well.

So we went shopping instead and then we saw an Ice Skating ring and went to watch everyone skating.

Our last day in Germany and we headed off early to catch our flight to Heathrow. There were loads of fans at Heathrow waiting for us to come in so we chatted to them for a while, signing autographs etc. Then we went to our hotel and watched a show called Pop Idol which we’d heard a lot about.

Sunday 27 January 2002

Our first day in London and we went to visit some of the sites. We went to Windsor Castle which was fantastic. All the armour, swords and history was amazing.

Then we went and had a Pub lunch which included sausages and mash and was really nice. We did a bit of shopping, the girls looking at clothes, Mikey in the computer shops and Caleb liked the book shops.

Monday 28 January 2002

We went to a place called Sound in Leicester Square where we filmed a few interviews and things for Channel 5. That took up most of the day and then we went back to our hotel to relax because we have a big day tomorrow!
