I have NEVER written a “look into the future” Thirsty Thursdays on here before but the excitement is building up to this one so I thought I’d give it a try today! It’s just a short post as I’m pretty busy the next few weeks. This is going to be the biggest reunion I’ve organised for a while – all my best mates together for one day!! Yes – we are all meeting up to do a “themed pub crawl” in the city that was once my home, London – England!

Uruguay won it in 1950 in Brazil.

So I’ll be straight out of Asia into Heathrow, quick breakfast then out to meet the lads for the day. It’s a day that involves a pub crawl theme encapsulating bars or restaurants related to all the World Cup teams that day:

- Costa Rica
- Colombia
- Greece
- Italy
- Uruguay
- England
- Ivory Coast
- Japan

It will be a reunion in London with some of my mates!

During the crawl we will also be playing crazy golf, having a few bets and watching ALL FOUR matches that day. So this promises to be the biggest reunion and thirstiest Thursday in years. I wrote a mini-guide on the day out here, there will be a few surprises to come that’s for sure:

After the crazy London day out, I am off to South America – flights booked. If you’re heading out to Brazil please be sure to book your flight from London in advance though as having checked the prices recently, they have shot up due to the popularity of flights out of Europe ahead of the world’s greatest event, the World Cup.

I will not be posting as regularly as normal the next few weeks due to extended travel, new projects (as ever) and the football but stay tuned – I’ve still got those 1,000 travel stories unwritten…
