    Knowing you , you are thinking of the shop in Ballyer

    If you are doing Eastern Europe point to point tickets work out cheaper but its worth checking each individual train company's website which would give direct details . There was a thing called Scanpass which covered Finland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark but think its not available anymore. Some good websites to plan a trip

    Myself, wws and bobthe builder had a week planned not so long ago.

    Pats on Friday. Fly to paris for saturday evening game. Overnight train to barcelona for Sunday. Train to Portugal for the Monday game (usually involves one of big 3). Then back to Spain for Tuesday CL. Fly/train to Italy for CL wednesday. UEFA Cup in Germany on Thrusday. back home for Friday night LOI.

    With Spanish games now on a Monday, you could probably do Scotland/England on the Weekend and save a bit there.

    We had it all costed and the week would cost us about a grand (+ spends). Then a combination of work, birds, rent and bills got in the way.

    Ain't it always the way. Add kids to the list now too.
