So, it's nearly here - I fly to South Africa on Friday. Coming back 2 days after the final. I've packed my bag, only taking hand luggage as I want to travel light and don't trust baggage handlers!

We've got tickets for the third England group game anf every other game that they make it to. I just hope they win the group as we've booked accommodation and travel around that scenario.... fingers crossed.

Also going to see Chile Vs Switzerland in Port Elizabeth on Monday and a R16 game in Joburg when we're up there.

Anyone interested, you can see our full itinerary (including ridiculous drives of over 16 hours at a time) here:

Also, watch out for my Yorkshire flag on TV:

I got home last Wednesday. Been back at work since Thursday.

The tournament and the country were amazing (England's performances aside). We had a fantastic time, not one sight or ounce of bother, football related or other.

I'll see about getting all our photos together and putting some up here.

In all, we went to 4 games:

Chile v Switzerland
England v Slovenia
England v Germany
Germany v Argentina

So, in the last two games of football I've seen, I've witnessed Germany score 8 goals. Cry.
