It’s been 16 years since attending my last World Cup game. That is about to change. After attending 5 games in 1994, the hiatus is over. Off to Dubai today, then down to Jo-burg.
The bags are packed for winter in June. The e-books are loaded. The malaria pills are ready. The Ambien is ready. Am I ready? Not sure. I am in store for a 16 hour flight with a 9 hour layover, followed by another 8 hour flight, followed by another 2 hour layover, culminating in a one hour flight to Durban. I should arrive by the end of the World Cup. Actually, I arrive on the 11th in time to watch the first game between South Africa and Mexico.
We have tickets to the following games:
**we may scalp tickets for the Spain Switzerland game or one Portugal game while in Cape Town.
Wine tasting, a safari at Imfolozi National Park(http://www.places.co.za/html/1979.html) and a shark dive (http://www.cape-xtreme.com/adventure-tours/shark-diving/) are also on the agenda.
I will update this once I get to Dubai…
