Manaus & Martin!

Posted by on 07/12/2013

I know most England fans won’t agree but I’m bloomin delighted with England’s draw!  I finish my cycle tour in Manaus and then England’s first game v Italy is also there on 14th June – perfect (plus saves me buying an extra internal flight!).  What a party there’s gonna be in the heart of the Amazon when the English and Italians arrive!

And then we go to Sao Paulo and Belo Horizonte which are relatively easier climates and relatively close together (that’s relatively in Brazil terms).  Then I predict England will finish second in Group D which means our Second Round game will be at the Maracana in Rio!!!  Love it.

& the other big news…

My brother Martin has booked his flights to come and join me for the last stage of the cycle tour!!!  So that’s just a 900-odd mile, 18-ish day cycle along the north coast from Fortaleza to Sao Luis to Belem followed by a 5 day boat trip up the Amazon River to Manaus followed by large celebrations and the World Cup!  Happy days.
