Dude. Tour.

Having recovered (just about) from a whole week of sleep deprivation, the cold, and having to sit next to Tom Middleton on the coach ;-) I think I'm just about ready to relay the stories of what went on on the UWSO and Chorus tour to Italy. I can safely say that it was one of the most entertaining and fun experiences I have ever had, and I'm not slightly deflated that we're all back in Blighty and not eating ice-cream in Milan, or walking across the Rialto, or choreographing exciting photographs in the amphitheatre in Verona. But all good things must come to an end I guess, and it is really good to know that we all had such an AWESOME time.

My personal highlights included;
Kicking Adrian to wake him up when we were playing a quartet in the lobby of a 5* hotel in Geneva
Waking up to watch the sun rise over the Alps with 3 feet of snow on either side of the road
Jaime's narcolepsy
Dribbling so much over Tom when I was asleep that he had to change his t-shirt
Tom's "Arab dance"
Me and Anna stalking the policemen in Milan
Formula 9
Dressing up in random outfits when drunk and being told by the hotel consierge "It's nice that you are all enjoying your homosexuality, but please can you not disturb the other guests"
Adrian being called an "inter-homo" by a random AJAX fan in Milan
Martin's comments in general, although "He has tramlines to inject spaghetti into his arms" was my favourite, along with "Phil, you appear to be having rotational difficulties"
The Northern Corner
Being taught rude Brass songs
Calling Alastair "Stairy Al"
Calling Tom a "Ginger Piss Wizard"
Never actually being completely sober
Wine tasting outside Bergamo
Tom on the roof of the bus playing a fanfare on Lewys's trumpet, signalling our return

I can't remember a time when I laughed for 8 solid days. Proof that tour really is the most fun you will ever have EVER. Thank you to everyone who made the week possible, and to everyone who was SO entertaining all week; the rest of the Back Seat Crew (Tom M, Adrian, Anna and Jaime), Alastair and Zoe, Phil, Radi, Jerzy, Ed, Mark, George and Cat, Hywel, and Lewys (sorry if I've missed anyone out!).

Here are some photos for your enjoyment, and can't wait to see you guys next term (but better still, next tour!).

Love to all

P.S. I'm still singing a certain song with the tune to Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. FORMULA 9!!

  3. Dude! Some great photos, I especially like this . Who knew choreographing a photo could take so long!

    Had forgotten all about Jamie's narcolepsy, the guy is a legend.

    I miss Italy too. Somehow Coventry just isn't the same..
