We are into our second spilt week in a row in Germany and the exciting thing about this week is we get to celebrate Gillian Madders 21st birthday.

We arrived into Magdeburg on Saturday evening and we were all very excited to have both Saturday night and Sunday night off to relax and do what we want. A few people decided to get something to eat and head out on the Saturday night.
Monday we flew to Copenhagen, but we weren’t sure looking out at the plane weather or not we would be able to take off as it had started to snow heavily again. Thankfully they are used to this weather here in Scandanavia and it doesn’t create any problems for them… unlike at home.
Before we knew it we had our first week done in Stockholm and we were back on the bus for our first travel day of 2010. Luckily it wasn’t too long a day as we were staying in Sweden but heading to Jonkoping. Jonkoping is a lovely quiet little town with loads of coffee shops and restaurants to relax in.
Well its back on the road for us again here in the Corrib, but we were lucky to get a nice two weeks off to spend with our family and friends over Christmas, unlike our colleagues in the Boyne and the Bann who had to work all over Christmas. So with us all rested and ready to go we found ourselves all back in Dublin Airport on Monday morning the 4th of January catching a flight to Stockholm.
We left Nantes after the Show on Sunday and began our long journey to Amsterdam. We travelled to just outside of Champagne, France that night and stayed over in a lovely hotel. It was bed for everyone as we had an early start in the morning again the complete our journey.
This week we had two short stops in Lille and Lyon. We also said goodbye to some company members, and welcomed four new members!
This week we return to Paris, after a few days off. In Paris we see many of the sights and have 8 sell out shows!
