Hi guys!

Being on tour with Kamelot means that I do have more time than usual to go out and do some sight seeing.
Most of the clubs where we're playing are often in the outskirts of the cities, but today we are close to the city center. The sun was shining and the mood was good. Luzern is very beautiful, but very expensive. Switzerland is the most wealthy country in Europe. Norway is second. I was in the mood for an ice cream, but it was 2.47 euros a scoop! So no ice cream for me, at least today.

Some pictures;

Everybody loves the Sun

Good day to all!

We have survived the London Royalness/mess and are now in Luxembourg.

The day started with sunshine but soon after we had a heavy rainstorm. I myself am don't bathe too much in the sun, but still love the sun. Waking up and seeing the sun fills me with positive energy. I prefer light to darkness.

While browsing through my pictures, I found some cute ones of the baby geese who live in our village. They also enjoy the sun. As cute as they look, they are extremely aggressive and wake us up in the morning. I often don't want to come too close, since they are extremely protective of their babies.

The pictures that I took were taken from our balcony. While the babies were taken in the sunshine, they were blocking the street. On both sides there were a lot of people waiting. They didn't dare to come too close. It was a funny scene.

Sunny greetings,

Paris et Simone

Hi guys,

We are having a lovely time here in Paris. The weather couldn't be better! Earlier today, Oliver and me went out to get some brunch:

When we came back we got a lovely surprise from a French fan: Easter Eggs!

Merci beaucoup! Looking forward to the show tonight.

Black Metal Easter Bunny

Happy Easter everybody!

I'm currently on tour with Kamelot and today we are in Antwerpen.

Yesterday we had a great gig in Amsterdam and tomorrow we're in Paris. Life's good! We're celebrating Easter with our metal fans and some bunnies, which hid the eggs too well.

After a long search, I finally found my easter egg.
I also met the Easter Bunny.

This cute bunny was wandering around the back yard of the venue. He thought he could hide those Ferrero Roche's for me, but I found them anyway.

Enjoy the holidays!

My family, Oliver and me went to Epen yesterday to take a walk and of course eat an ice cream to cool down a bit. The weather is so lovely these days. It almost feels like summer. I love waking up in the morning to see that the sun is sharing it's rays with us.

Have a wonderful day!

A little story from my side for you to read.

On our flight back from Mexico to Germany, Oliver and me were sitting at the 'three seater' at the window. The bigger airplanes are divided in three sections; on the outer sides there are three seats and in the middle there are 5 seats.

The window seat was still empty and we were both anxiously awaiting our travel partner. We both have had nasty experiences with people not using any deodorant, making weird sounds (snoring, farting, etc.) or talking to you continuously.

When our guy approached us, we were relieved. No weird smells and he looked quite decent.

It turned out to be a continuous complainer. He was downgraded from first class to second class. Nothing was good enough for him. We were sitting at a compartment without chairs in front of us. Oliver was happy that he had enough leg room. I was happy that nobody in front of me would put their chair in my face. But our lovely friend was complaining about everything and kind of spoiled it for us.

I tried to be nice to him by helping him where ever I could. The stewardess was afraid of him and was doing everything possible to help him. Luckily I was sleeping most of the time so I didn't have to put up with his bad mood all the time.

He did give me the feeling that nothing in the second class was good enough for him and that he was better than us and deserved more attention. In a way he was right to be angry since he probably paid for an expensive ticket and got downgraded to the second class, but it wasn't our fault nor the stewardess'.

Push the Butt-On

Hi guys,

Lately something funny happened to me, and I thought it would be something that I'd want to share with you. Actually, a lot of funny things happen to me, especially on the road. Some are too embarrassing to share with you.

Kamelot asked me to join them on tour. Oliver and me left to Frankfurt on the 5th of April. I sometimes get into really awkward positions, because I try to carry all my bags and not hit people around me.

When Oliver, me and all my bags tried to squeeze into a small elevator, the alarm suddenly went off. We didn't know how it happened and told the lady on the speaker that it was a false alarm.

I started to think how it could have happened. Then it occurred to me; to fit Oliver, me and my bags in the elevator, I was standing on the tip of my toes. As I was reconstructing the scene, I noticed that my butt was touching the alarm. I wonder how many other people have pushed the Butt-On by accident and set off the alarm.

It's good to know that, in case I ever have no hand available, my butt can always set off the alarm in case of a real emergency.

Off to bed, tomorrow we fly to Sao Paulo!

Good night,
