Guest Post: Ari on the road in BERLIN

Hello, I’ve been meaning to do a guest post and thought now would be a good time. I’m with my band, The Upwelling, and we’re on tour with AAR right now in Europe. I hope you will enjoy it.


I got up this morning; a bartender graciously let us sleep in her house. The place was freezing, there was no heat and nobody slept the whole night in Hamburg. We left Hamburg at 8 and stopped halfway between Hamburg & Berlin to get coffee and a croissant.

Here we are ordering breakfast:


The bread was great in Germany. Much better than in the U.K., I thought.


At a truckstop on the way to Berlin:


I got a diet coke and Bifi beef jerky- it’s strange type of jerky that seems to be very popular. Sold in the same section as candy.

We had lunch in Berlin in a little restaurant.


Berliner beer (made in Berlin) and some kind of goulash. Very delicious.


Backstage at the venue:


There was a German woman there cooking for us.


We have to hydrate somehow!

There was quite a spread…


… and everything was delicious.


Here I am with Chris from the All-American Rejects in the bathroom:


Another Berliner:


iChatting with Katie from backstage:

Here’s us playing Shepards Bush Empire in London.


And a little eye candy for ya!


Thanks for reading!
