Tickets go on sale on Tuesday, so i need to shell out for a 'Team specific ticket' which means if your country qualifies, youve got the tickets for all their games, and if they dont, you get your money back. Ideal.

Raven, your right, of course theyll qualify...theyll be very hard to beat as well. Its the best crop of Irish players theres ever been in my opinion, theyre just waiting for greatness. And don't be jealous, it took a lot of saving and boring weekends to do this, i could have just moved to the West of Ireland and trained to be a plumber in Mayo....now THATS a plan!

plumber in mayo, emmmm not on my list, i'm trying to figure out should i change my job, i want more money, freedom and less work but can't find it !!! maybe i should go back to sleep.....

that ticket deal is pretty cool !!

Alright Jas? Hope youve checked those flights and are ready to book?!!

Evelyn, we didnt want to plan it to death but the closer weve got, the more got planned....due to panic! We'll not have too long in Nepal, but enough time to see Everest. When we get to Kathmandu, we will fly to Lukla with Yeti Airlines (crazy name, crazy planes) for about £106stg return, from Lukla it is one days relaxed trek to Phakding and from there, one days (trickier because of the steep ascent) trek to Namche Bazaar, a Sherpa village in the Khumbu region which has a market on saturdays and apparently some great bakeries(!). So we'll just relax there for a few days taking in Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse and going for little walks and then we'll return to Kathmandu the same way and back down to India to continue our travels there. Remember, if your doing this you'll need a multiple entry visa for India...it costs the same though.
