All booked up

Today I booked the motor home I'll be using for my month away in Germany for the World Cup next year. It sleeps four which is a little bigger than I need but I have got a couple of mates coming out for a couple of games and I wanted the space in case I got lucky.

Will be planning route as soon as we know the groups. Keep coming back and leave a comment or two if you are reading this.

We're not doing it for the cash

David Beckham has opened his mouth today to talk of the England bonus, he said 'We don't go into a game thinking we can make money for winning. There is too much pride and passion in our team to even suggest that'.

I'm assuming ahead of the World Cup in Germany next year Beckham along with the rest of the England team will announce that if they do win they'll all be donating the 'bonus' to English charities.

World Cup 2006

On December 9th 2005 in Leipzig Germany, the draw will take place for the 2006 World Cup finals to be held in Germany next year and we'll finally know which group England will be in.

I've started this blog because I'm going to be following England in Germany and using this service I can email updates onto the site with images of where I am and what and who I'm doing.

Don't expect too much until about May next year when I start my journey to Germany but expect a few things. I'm goinf to be adding links to sites I visit on a regualr basis so if you want a link exchange, get in contact with me.
