So, we first set off in the early morning at 6am (dead tired already) in our tiger bus! It's an awesome bus, PQ did some modifications to this old school bus and it's complete with a bar, couches and sleeping area! Perfect for a student orchestra road trip! w00t!! So, jamming in the bus for the 7 hours trip? Why not
Arrival and we played our first concert in the Chalmers University square (the uni hosting us in Gothemberg), it was pretty awesome, everyone got so into the songs and were dancing and jumping around haha. They don't care much about the lameness =P. Had our liquid orientation that night, was a lot of fun...maybe a bit too much fun haha. It was basically a series of activities you played against another team to get to know some new people like croquet with eggs =P, getting your team across the carpark with the least number of people touching the ground, the quickest team to do a raindance...you know, good old fashioned ice breakers XD BUT with the added twist that after most activities, you take a shot....hmmmm....added onto the fact that dinner was AFTER the orientation and you get a slightly drunk me =P shhhh. No no, nothing bad...just a slightly louder, more swedish talking me who clapped along a bit too enthusiastically to the jam session in the corridor XD. But it was good fun and it was fun talking and meeting guys from Sweden, Norway and Finland.
Next day, we paraded happily through the sunny, sunny streets of Göteborg. Sun just POURING down on us the whole way, you should see the pictures. Such PERFECT weather over there....brrr.
That night we had the big concert and we got to see all the other bands. I love the fact how they were all so different, the Norweigan band was really cool, always playing in a semi circle and they all memerised their music! It made for a lot of really cool and fun moments with the band, and to top it off, they played Austin Powers featuring a cute piccoloist
Next day we crawled out of bed somehow, and prepared to leave our wonderful accommodation, the classroom floor of a Swedish secondary school...ya...many good nights sleep there...Then we trudged along to breakfast, Ah a traditional breakfast of sill (herring) and what? Vodka shots?? and more drinking songs!?? *gulp* These Swedes are crazy I tells ya! Haha, what an awesome and very Swedish weekend =D
