Belgium Tattoo blog 3 - 1st Oct 2019

28th September:

The pressure was on today as we had a royal audience - the king of the Netherlands. Our matinee show went smoothly as we performed for the second time in the stadium. The evening show began with some re spacing due to last minute injuries - however this didn't affect our flawless performance which came. After we all ate our weights worth in yummy Dutch snacks - we got onto our bus ride home while still buzzing from the nights performance. 


29th September 

Sunday was our final show in Rotterdam, and we were all feeling a mixture of relief, sadness at saying goodbye to the scottish girls, as well as excitement for our upcoming travels to amsterdam and belgium. There was a buzzing atmosphere backstage throughout the matinee, all the performers smiling and taking photos together as we congratulated each other and said our goodbyes. We thanked our awesome liaison Fred for all his help during our stay, all of us dancers contributed a small amount towards a personalised t-shirt as well as performing a waiata as a big kiwi thank you. We hurried to pack up all our costumes to then get on the bus back to a barbecue hosted for all the tattoo performers. After a massive dutch feast we hopped back on the bus heading to Amsterdam- despite being exhausted from the 5 Rotterdam shows, we were all excited and full of energy once we hit the thrilling and bustling city.
