UK / Euro Tour: Feb. 22nd - Mar. 7th

We've been to a lot of places over the course of eighteen days.  It's weird getting in the van and driving somewhere and then waking up the next day and being in another country.  Back home, it takes eight hours to drive from St. Louis to Atlanta; while in that amount of time over here, you can drive through about three different countries.  Most of the pictures below were taken during The UK portion of our journey.    

China Town, London.

The British Museum.

London Eye.

We've tried to make food as much as possible.  We've made Dal twice now.

We made some new friends who let us stay at their seven-bedroom house out in the English countryside for four nights.  They had chickens in their backyard.  Nathan is vegan.  This is funny.

In The UK, instead of a bunch of cattle along the side of the road, they have sheep.

The Dover Cliffs, southeast coast of The UK.

I still have never seen Titanic, but I imagine it would look something like this...

Today, we're leaving Amsterdam.  I'm writing this from the bar in the hotel where we played/stayed last night.  We only have three shows left of this tour and then the long journey back home will take place.  We'll be getting back to St. Louis on Monday evening and on Wednesday morning, we'll be making the thirteen hour drive down to Austin, TX for SXSW.  We'll post pictures of the Euro portion of the trip soon.
