Starting the weekend off right, here we are in our hotel room in Derby getting ready for the festivities tomorrow.In usual road trip fashion, we kicked this off with a bout of getting lost in the countryside of Bedfordshire on route to make a pit stop to collect our passes, with then a spot off SATNAV spazzing out and crashing on us – leaving us once again lost and delayed – we finally got it working again and made it up to Derby early evening.
The next challenge was the hunt for Jack Daniels before a fab dinner & cocktails, the last proper meal we’d have unil we returned home to London.
Then a spot of hotel pampering, a DVD and a early night await us… bring on tomorrow!
Tips and Pointers for anyone pre-festival for reference…
– Always have a back-up plan incase your SATNAV breaks – map or phone with GPS.
– The night before the festival (or you if you’re camping) make sure you have a proper cooked meal.
– Get a good night sleep, you’re gonna need the energy!
