Last week Petra says to me "how about a trip to see Apoplexia in the Netherlands"? "ok" I said... not really interested but ..hey... festivals are always fun and a weekend trip with P is always good for the giggles ... so we set off on Friday night for Brussels by Eurostar from Waterloo.
This trip... let me tell you about this trip. We got to Bruxelles some time on Friday night and stayed at the Ibis hotel, just across the road from the Garde du midi - or zuid or centraal - god knows.. why are there so many? Surely a central station means its the central station?
Doesn't matter, we managed to leave by the wrong exit anyway.
In the hotel P breaks the news that it will take several changes of train, a bus trip and probably a long walk in the country to find this festival... oooookkkkkkaaaaayyy... I'm still up for it... I mean how big is the Netherlands anyway?? can't be THAT far can it?? Oh and she said if I call Apocaplytica "Alopecia" one more time I can get the next train home. These guys are Finnish... they are classically trained cellists... they are HUGE in Finland..they play heavy metal on their cellos and apparently are (loud booming voice from above)... ROCK GODS!!

I can't say it here... let's just say... they are freakin' fantastic!!!!! And if I had to travel that distance to see them again.... I would...
