Actung! Bender Alarmbereitschaft!

As mentioned in an earlier post, the Bundesliga fixtures were announced on the 5/7/10, and we got the draw we wanted. After missing out last year, due to it's proximity to Xmas, we have our Berlin trip. They are playing in the Olympic stadium, which hosted the 2006 World Cup final no less, on the weekend of the 29/4-02/05 2011. The perfect date, just as the weather is starting to warm up. It is also the third from last game of the season, which almost always means the game is on Sunday afternoon. Let's hope there are no volcanic eruptions this time around. Have looked into flights, and they are coming up at £148 flying from Manchester, via Dusseldorf, departing at the unholy time of 08:00 in the morning. Still, it does give us all day Friday in Berlin, so I am sure we can drag our arses out of bed early. The alternative flies at 15:25, but we don't hit the German capitol till eight in the evening, which wastes a day, in my opinion. I am going to check out Expedia to see if it is cheaper to combine a flight and hotel, and will also search some hotel sites for a price on digs. Watch this space.

I may join you. Berlin is so great. but better if we stay there at least 4 days. so a huge city, like London, but only 3 millions people living there. Cheers. Major
