Having been bought up on a diet of camping and sleeping rough we seemed to be more attuned to the conditions than a lot of others.
The locals in the surrounding villages were so nice to us, from students buying us beers and giving us a bed for the night when we stayed out till 4 am to the elderly woman celebrating her birthday with us one morning in Gross Eichen,
I went on 6 buses to games, for which i had tickets and the only issue we had was a trip to Liepzig which went a bit wrong but finished up ok,
The people who moaned about cold showers and queues for showers did not bother walking 30 metres down the hill to the portable showers that were installed.
To all the friendly and communicative people from England, Scotland , Mexico, Portugal and others that i met I thank you on behalf of the 4 Aussies for helping to make the experience one to remember for the right reasons.
To the wallys who found it necessary to push down a farmers fence and through things at his bull , and chant endlessly Engerland during other countries games in both the big tent and the town bars , I say maybe it is time you need to make a decision about what your life is for.
Thanks to all
my trip is over i am happy and sad ....
well said mr aus -
i think personally mr bernie bit off more than he could chew, world cups come evry 4 years.
the germans on the fancamp site were wonderful - having to listen to 10 german bombers, why and where did that song come from , to be honest there wasnt a person on that fancamp site apart from the German on the scooter, that lived through the war. and if your father or gran father is alive, i hope he is ashmed of you for singing that song.
The Germans may have bombed UK, but what we did to them was is a blot on our history.
Re the other song , "no surrender to the IRA" i asked some one singing it if he was a catholic, he said yes, i shook my head and thoght whats the point.
I was proud of how many english were there, not proud of some of there thoughts.
Benrie did cock up, he didnt deligate, the pool was em not as pictured. the cold showered were er ...cold, however i had a laugh queing, and i was sunburnt and it was a relief to be honest.
I got anoyed with some of the drivers, didnt seem to know the route, selling beer on the way home to already piussed suppoters.
But i was there, i bit my lips and ignorant bastards who wanted to talk to there mates at the top of there voices at 3am.
The polish security didnt seem to do much, however i did fancy one of them , female , so there forgiven.
The french guy who was dumped on by Bernie did try and help , and had a good sense of humour, even after some stupid midless englaish person pissed on his lap top, may i wish that person something nasty and painful to happen to his cock.
Bernie did give refunds, more than maybe he should have.
But all in all i was there, i experienced , the world cup i saw the sea of english fans in Frankfurt, nurenburg and Koln - i shook hands with many nations, and to some degree, a disorganised Polish man made it happen.
Thanks Bernie, next time learn to delegate.
