Juice=Juice in Dortmund

Sunday I finally went to the Juice=Juice world tour concert in Dortmund. It was so amazing, I have so much to talk about!
Before  As I am from the Netherlands, my brother and I planned to go by train. It would take us about 4 hours to get there, but oh well. We took about two trains in the Netherlands and two in Germany. The trips was actually fine. It didn't feel like a long trip and Germany is just so beautiful. There is so much to see! In Dortmund, it was pretty busy as there also was something with soccer. Our hotel was really close to the station. It was really big and pretty, which made me wonder if we were at the right hotel. It was the right hotel, so we checked in and got our stuff togheter. We were on the top floor and had a few of the building next to us. We could almost see the FZW from our room! We got our stuff and our tickets and went out to eat. Ofcourse we went to McDonalds' and got some delicious chicken wings. Guys, we don't have these in the Netherlands…

Juice=Juice week: How I prepare for the Juice=Juice concert in Dortmund

In just a few days I will be traveling to Dortmund to finally meet and see Juice=Juice! I have been dreaming of this moment eversince the group was announced and now it is here. I have only ever been to one concert by BerryzxC-ute and one live-event/mini concert by Hangry&Angry/Ishikawa Rika & Yoshizawa Hitomi, so I am really excited for this!
The moment I heared Juice=Juice would come to France, UK and Germany, I was really happy. I live in the Netherlands which is inbetween these countries, so one of the location was going to be do-able for me! I actually thought their Germany concert would surely be in Berlin or Munchen, not in Dortmund! Dortmund is way closer to my home! My younger brother will come with me to Dortmund, eventhough he is by no means a Juice=Juice fan. He does really love Japan and thought this would be a nice concert. Last time, for the BerryzXC-ute concert, I didn't really prepare to much. I had some thing I wanted to say to the girls, and that was ab…
