Awaycation Autumn 2024

The starting gun has fired!

This morning the English Premier League announced the fixtures for the forthcoming 2024/25 season. It looks as supporters we have been fortunate to miss fewer games by going away on vacation!

Both Phil and I have trips planned in September and October. The weeks he wants to be away currently have only one game that I can go to and he can go away. SImilarly, in October there is another international break and the weekend of our wedding anniversary just one game to check, and Phil can go to that one. It's all about ensuring that my seat has a bum, in the backside sense of the word, on it every home game!

So with that out of the way I can start to look for places to go. After the traumas of getting around London to get to the Midlands and North last weekend and to get back again, I still prefer the idea of blowing all our Tesco Clubcard points against the ferry fare to France and then head south to the warmer weather. If it indeed exists in 2024!

Some decades ago in the South of England we were told that climate change would be so severe that it would ensure that by 2025 we would be a Mediterranean Climate. It would mean that farmers would have to adapt to the change and we would see crops growing that would usually be imported from the south of France and Spain. It's not happened. Judging by the weather across Western Europe over the last with lots of rain, it is the French and Spanish that have actually got the "English Climate" instead!

So where to look for the warmer weather and dare I say it, the sun? I'm thinking to go down the east side of France and aim for the Mediterranean. Maybe St Tropez with all the beautiful people....

That's where I will start to look at sites to stay at and aire's to use on the way down.... Maybe Italy even?

At the moment it's all to play for.
