Last night I had such a great visit with my dad's cousin who I haven't seen since I was in grade 5. Thankfully, they were nice enough to let me stay the night (and feed me delicious food) in Stephen's City, VA to help me save some money. It was so great to catch up!
This morning, I woke up to an ever so yummy breakfast and hit the road for Charlotte for my first gig of the tour! This drive definitely was NOT the easiest thing in the world. It rained and it rained harrrrd. Those 18 wheelers sure are scary, I'll tell ya that much. But I made it alive! Thankfully, my dad's cousin hooked me up with a great hotel as well so I'm currently sitting on a giant bed in my room at the Hilton instead of a dirty room where I'm scared to go under the sheets to sleep haha.
I had a nice nap and then got myself ready to play. The people at Queen City Q are SO friendly. I had such a great time. Not going to lie, I was kind of nervous to play in a new bar and new country for that matter. But people really seemed to enjoy it and I can't wait to go back and play tomorrow! The bar is super close to the football stadium AND the basketball/hockey arena. I wish I was in town for the football game on Sunday! Everyone was all decked out in their panthers gear and it was only Friday!
Tomorrow I'm going to wander the city and see where I end up. Definitely going to buy a Panthers shirt so I can fit in with everyone :) My canadian accent and constant use of the word "eh" really makes me stick out! I'll post pictures of everything tomorrow!
I'm having such a wonderful time and I can't wait to keep travelling and playing!
