Well it’s just over one month to go and I’ve had a couple of exciting last minute changes to my trip. I’ve also decided to take 2 weeks off right now to relax before the big trip (and organise the little things I’m sure I’m forgetting about).
I was lucky enough to get a ticket to a World Cup soccer match in Munich on 24 June. While I’m going to have to backtrack in Europe to attend I felt this is a once in a life time chance. The match is in the 2nd round knockout phase and features the winner of the Germany group versus the 2nd in the England group.
A very good chance the host nation will be involved. Unbelievable if it happens to be Germany vs. England! I’m catching one of those budget airlines (return) from Nice to Munich, should be very interesting. The second change is I’m going to do a side visit to England from Paris for 2 1/2 days to catch up with my good friend Jon. I’ll be flying over on British Airways but catching the Channel train (Eurostar) on the way back that should be a good experience. This means I’m now visiting 23 countries.
It will be good to catch up with Jon one month into this trip and not be staying at a hostel for a few days. Four weeks and three days to go!
