I’ve been dreading writing this. It’s almost like I’ve felt like when I do, it means that the tour is officially over. I have to close the book behind me and look forward, when all I want to do is keep riding around the country, wake up to a new place every morning and have people that I love around me at all times.
I have been warned about this – the post-tour depression. Although I don’t really have the right to sound too heartbroken. In only a couple of weeks, most of us are packing our bags again and flying over the Atlantic for the European part of the tour. I get to go home for a couple of weeks, and even after that there is more touring to come. So I might as well stop sounding so deflated right now.
But I have also been dreading this because I have absolutely no idea how you summarise seven weeks of not a single day being like the other. Then I figured, that maybe I don’t have to. Maybe that is what this is all for. Perhaps it is enough to say that nothing else that I’ve done compare to this and that if you have a chance to do nothing but travel around in a country like America, you should take it. I know I will never regret that I did.
We arrived to NYC, our last stop, late morning.
We only had that day, so I didn’t even have time to see any of my friends.
Because I’ve been before I didn’t feel the need to run around.
The few hours I had before the show were spent here.
Watching Swedish tv.
Fell in love with the hotel room.
But I had to get ready and head out in the night.
Everyone’s show was even more fun and emotional than usual.
Afterwards we went to our favourite hotel to celebrate.
These two were inseparable.
The morning after I woke up to this.
And a headache that required this.
On the last number of the show the girls made me go up on stage and clap along. It made a nice last memory of all the fun we had on this trip. I also want to thank everybody that has read this little travel journal and given me their love for it. I really appreciate it and will probably continue to write when the touring resumes in a couple of weeks. All the best until then.
