Dear Tour Diary,
Wednesday 26th March 2003 – Edinburgh
Who ever said that showbiz is glamorous?! We woke up at 04:30 this morning and hopped into two mini-vans that whisked us through the foggy streets of London and off to Stanstead Airport where we got on to a plane headed for Scotland.
Bleary eyed we jottled with businessmen for a good seat on the plane and soon we were in beautiful Edinburgh where our tour buses were waiting for us, along with our wonderful drivers, Dave and Andy.
We loved cruising through Edinburgh on our way to the hotel and thought that it was a beautiful city. Lots of quaint buildings and an amazing skyline of church spires and castle-like roofs.
Into the hotel and our rooms were lovely, really spacious and the beds – comfy to the max!
We all had a small bite to eat with a coffee and then Danny and Dave got the munchies so went out to grab a pizza to bring back to the hotel.
We had a bit of time to spare so most of us had a wee nap and then we had to get into our cossies before it was time to make our way to the Big W store. We had an interview with ETC radio whilst Emily and Saranne went deep into the store to buy make-up remover and other such essentials – plus a bit of tartan for us to remember our brief trip to Scotland.
Then it was time to set ourselves up and sign autographs and chat to the many fans who came along to see us. It was great to meet so many fans up in this part of the country as we have never been this far on a tour before and some fans had travelled for hours so it was much appreciated to meet them all.
We got to have a bit of time with a special fan, Amanda who has been a huge fan since The Tribe started. She brought us all Scottish pressies which we were rapt with!
Time to head off for dinner and we found a fantastic place called Giullinos where we all pigged out and enjoyed some Scottish cuisine – none of us tried haggis though!
Back to the hotel as we have another early start tomorrow when we check out and head down to Manchester for a live appearance at the Manchester branch of the Big W. So, off to bed and sweet dreams, ready for another day.
