Well one can dream !

 Sitting here thinking what might have been another good trip away (well ok , just building up effort to complete tax return as no rugby).

 Just regret missing the Agen game ,deciding not to go because they were messing around with the day to be played due to television. I think rumours of the effect of the virus were circulating but seemed a world away.

 Anyway it got me thinking as to which away trip I have enjoyed most , not necessarily the best game or win for us( very rare anyway).

 La Rochelle December 2017 does it for me. Not only was it a high scoring match - 49 - 29 loss to us with 11 tries in total but the whole weekend was an event.

 Because of its position, rather than fly down to Bordeaux? And hire a car we had decided to take the Tunnel and drive down . Doubts did set in when driving along in Normandy following 2 snowploughs but once we got further south snow cleared and made up the time without further incident .
  Wonít bore you with too many details , but the rest of the weekend took in a great night of drinking eating and meeting waspies old and new. The old town of La Rochelle is a great town to visit and their fans are brilliant . Loved the many flags that were out on buildings for their team.

Other bits I can remember - their mascot geeing up the crowd, the stomping on the stands , the way it turned cold and getting soaked on way back to town. The winds that night . TV full of Johnny Holliday Ďstateí funeral procession.
  Drive back was bad including  french equivalent of operation stack,tunnel shut, ferry ran
aground that night,  and finally 2 miles from home ,snow closing road with a 7 mile diversion duly ignored.
 
 So a heavy defeat , an eventful journey ,letís say,( oh I didnít mention the electronic hotel key that didnít work at 2:00 in the morning  which involved the least inebriated one, me ,to try and explain problem over phone)

 Did it put me off doing another trip ? Of course not  Was it Dublin next year ? Where we were on a bus with the driver desperately trying to overtake the bus we needed for the airport- but thatís another story.

That was a fantastic weekend...nightmare getting home due to Stansted snow closure though!
