jonv Posted March 17, 2008 Share Posted March 17, 2008 gents and lasses. I need your help. I'm going on a round the world journey of epic proportions. Actually, It's halfway around the world with a quick stop via Europe. My air ticket has rules that mean I have to make a stop in Europe and / or England and I figure if large corporations are forcing me to go to such places at no extra cost I might as well make the trip that just bit better by heading down and making my first ever trip to Ewood Park I've seen Blackburn twice before. Both against Spurs. Both at WHL. Lord help me It looks like I have the choice of flying into London or Manchester. Keep in mind I'm a backpacker on a budget. Taking a cross country train journey would be pretty cool if I got to see some of England but I don't want to waste money on it if everywhere will be suburban and Burnley looking . Of course I have no idea who Blackburn would be versing on the weekend that I'd be going although it would be around September so heres keeping fingers crossed the match will BE at Ewood. I need recommendations for cheap accommodation around or near the ground and also obviously which airport to fly into. I was looking on the website and Blackburn do ground tours for quite cheap so I'd DEFINITELY have to book 1 of those, what do you think the likely hood of meeting a few players during the ground tour would be ? My mates are Villa and Everton fans and every Saturday we crowd around the box midnight perth (aussie) time and go all out, so there'd me mega jealous. I'd probably be only in England for literally like, 4 days because I've heard how expensive it can be and although I was born in Northampton, I don't really have much need to see London as I've seen it in the past. I'll be 21 by the time I'm there so any recco's for what mischief I could get upto are well appreciated www.jonsblog.cjb.com was my old blog for those who don't care please help!
