Off to France by Wild in Africa on 28 April 2005 6:02pm
 
I'm travelling to France for 6 days vacation next week so will be out of touch a while but I have postal voted already so am not neglecting my democratic duties (which is a useful repost to the damn pollsters when they come to my door...too late mate, my vote's already gone in!!)

Have a good time, m8!

You go to Turkey every year? Sizing up the opposition in Galatasaray in case Spurs ever get to play them in Europe?
 
Re: Off to France by Spursfan on 28 April 2005 6:55pm
 
Ho ho ho! My Turkish team is Besiktas (that Besh-ee-tash by the way, not Bes-eek-tas as football pundits annoyingly say! Should be a cidilla under the first 's').

I have friends who support Galatasaray and Fenerbahce. yes we usually get there at least once a year, been all over except the extreme east, we have a lot of good friends there especially one particular family. Also went to Trabzon (as in Trabzonspor) one year!

(We're not Turkish, btw!)

Oh - but in case you think I'm boring, we go other places as well - Nepal, India, Maldives, Mexico, USA ETC ETC

How can a Spurs fan be boring (Well there was Peter Purves I suppose, though I doubt if anyone remembers him now)?
You do travel well and widely. My travels are mostly work related. I will also be in Kenya and Southern Sudan later in May, and hopefully Ireland in June to visit family.

Course I remember Peter Purves! I remember at Xmas when Blue Peter presenters were exchanging gifts, he always had a Spurs-related gift! Sometimes I thought he looked as if he wanted to say, yes, I support Spurs but I'd like something different this year!!

You're lucky travelling so widely through work. Haven't been to Africa yet, well, only to Tunisia. We were there in 1980 at the same time as the queen made a state visit and I can remember joining a crowd of excited schoolgirls in Kairohan (can't remember the spelling now!) waiting for her! We didn't stop with them - too much to see!

We prefer, if we can, to use public transport - trains, buses whatever, as you see the countries more. However, when we do a big tour (eg along the Med coast of Turkey as far as Mersin, up to Tarsus and central Turkey, along the Black Sea coast almost to the Russian border, back to central Turkey, to Konya and then up to Kusadasi) we hire a car.

This holiday (16 days to go, yippee) is going to be a dossing holiday though! Pool, beach and friends, plus good food (did you know Turkish cuisine is rated 2nd or 3rd in the world?)- who can beat it!! Oh, not to forget a bit of sun (carefully though, of course!).

Well, (and I'll stop rambling in a mo'!!), I should be having a liver biopsy today but it has been postponed as someone else needed it more than me. Don't begrudge them but I was all physched up! Oh - not drink related, btw!! Hopefully I'll be rescheduled b4 I go away or in June.

Happy travels 'En France' my little spurspal!! When do you go? I'll miss your messages!!

Off cross channel on Tuesday and back the following Sunday. 8 hour drives should be fun with a 4 month old in the back seat!

Not as bad as long drives in the states with a pre-teen (boy) and a stroppy teenager (girl)!! Boy - is that torture!
