Although I’m not a huge football fan at all, I took an interest in last weekend’s football match seeing as quite a few of my friends are avid England supporters and I take infinite enjoyment in their disappointment (I’m obliged to dismiss all England successes in Football/ Rugby being a Welsh Rugby Fan, born and bred) and especially as their rivals were Norway, a relatively undeveloped footballing nation as far as I know but more importantly our host country for the 5 weeks this summer.

With the prospect of not washing for month in my mind I decided to do a quick search around to try and find out the possible effects.

Although she wasn’t spending everyday trekking, so perhaps not all that similar to what Noklan will be like.
Apologies for the typography of my last post; looks like something from a Biff and Chip book!
