I'm not too sure how the wc will work out this year for me. I should see some games but i'll be on my honeymoon for most of it and so i'll probably miss loads.

no unfortunately!

we couldn't make it work in the end so we've just plumped for a beach holiday in spain and then on to glastonbury.

not shockingly original but it's exactly what we wanted.

But that's the main thing, some people seem to spend time trying to do something completely original or once in a lifetime but if you want to go to blackpool for a week it's what you should do

yeah this is it. we did have some grand ideas at the start of the year but then it started to dawn on us that we just didn't want to go too crazy after all.

the main plan is to down tools for a bit and do precious little.

we have one or two small trips back to dublin and letterkenny in july & august and then I have no leave left to take until christmas :(

and we like blackpool! not sure about a week there mind. I'd die from a drink related illness.

mates of ours went for 3 days in scarborough as part of their honeymoon last year. they didn't give a shit, they like it there (naturally there was raised eyebrows and people saying SCARBOROUGH?..SOMETHING DIFFERENT ANYWAY)

On the 30th, I'm heading back to Iceland - scene of my first major holiday bowelocalypse.
There'll be no service station burritos this time.
Then heading to Tuscany for a week in September.

In between I also have the joy of heading to Letterkenny for a wedding, with afters on Tory Island.
I'd be lying if I said I didn't fear that more than any colon evactuaction.

There is nothing wrong with Letterkenny, shivo.

Where's the wedding, just in the Cathedral with the reception on Tory Island? That sounds very awkward if so.

Nothing wrong with Letterkenny at all.
Church and reception is all there, but the 2nd day there's a big session on Tory. That's the part I'm afraid of.
I've been drinking with some Tory folk before. It doesn't end well.

Heading to Primavera in Porto also. Had to cut short the rest of my plans for after to come back and do the embassy interview for heading to the States. Could be worse like!

My brother's going to be doing placement for college over in Edinburgh from mid-August to mid-October so will hopefully head over to him for the weekend when I'm home.

And I'm going to the States for 3 months (working holiday)

No idea. Probably should have read the invite.

Either going to Hawaii or Cabo for Christmas

First year since 2010 I won't be home for Christmas, but I felt like I needed to do something different with my vacation time
