  1. Yip, what McTeeko said and if you mention it to the driver, they'll also make sure you don't miss the stop
  2. First hat off the production line - scheduled for delivery to us by the end of next week and we’ll get them send as soon as we get them
  3. Closer to a night-out stinking of smoke but most places had the tables outside, with most smokers sitting there
  4. Couple of key items for everyone As you might have read elsewhere, the coach company are applying a ban on the carrying of alcohol (including placing it in the hold) - this appears to be being applied right across the island, so no way round it - so its bit like here, with no cans or bottles For those booked and have been selected for ticket pick up, there's no reason we won't be there in time to allow you to do so - we will be departing at 19.15 and will take approximately 30 minutes to reach the stadium, meaning we should be there about an hour before kick off
  5. We were there last month (with our kids aged 17 and 13) and I slightly disagree with Kevin about Trastevere . We had an apartment next to the Vatican and they’d suggested this area as still being the old part of Rome and with a mix of street entertainers and street art at night, coupled with more authentic bars and cafes, we found we went there 3 of the 4 nights. Did go during the day and just wandered round the narrow lanes and stopped here and there – we also walked from the Trastevere all the way up to the main part, which has a cracking church (yes I know but its pretty impressive inside), so the area itself covers quite a distance, so I’m sure there will be a few things that’ll catch your eye. Also on that side of the river, they’ve got a set up (down at the river) where its like marque tents and they sell a range of food/drink, as well as hand craft stuff etc – worth a wee look when you’re there as well. If not already on your list, make time to go to the Castel Sant'Angelo, which is about a 10 minute walk from the Vatican and overlooking the Tiber – our digs suggested it as its got one of the best views to see Rome – its got a small restaurant up there but not many tables. Get up to the roof and you’ll have a very good vantage point – think we were about €20/€25 for the 4 of us but I think the kids were free. Not sure if you’ve thought about travelling around but we bought the travel ticket rather than the sightseeing pass (that includes entrance to a few places) – we felt it worked out better value.
  7. They are yours Stan - you know what to do Paul
  8. Hi everyone As previously stated, I've sent confirmation emails to everyone who's paid and I can only assume that there's no one who's paid that hasn't had a confirmation There are TWO seats left - I will allocate based on the first to post on this thread and will contact the person(s) with the payment details, which will be £3.50 per seat. Hope all in order for everyone, Paul
  9. I've got a couple of minor formalities to confirm with a couple of people but ALL who've paid should have had an email by now, which details the pickup and travel, plus the important part of which bus they are on. Where I've got questions marks on the lists below, I'm not too bothered as in 99% of cases, I’ve got a contact number for someone in their group but remember, the departure times are fixed, so if you're not there the transport leaves without you.

  10. Ian, can you PM me or send an email to deerus.ps@gmail.com Thanks, Paul
  11. I've sent confirmation emails to all who've paid. Thanks Paul
  12. Morning everyone! During the course of today, I’ll be replying to everyone who’s PAID for their seats and I’ll be sending you confirmation to the PAYPAL email address that’s been used to make the pament. The confirmation will include: Your Bus detail TIME OF DEPARTURE Full address of the bar Full address of the pickup point A map to show you the (very simple) route from the bar to the pickup point My contact details If you don’t receive the confirmation by 09.00 on Friday the 29th of July (after checking your spam folder just in case!), can you please email me on deerus.ps@gmail.com, which is the address to which you’ve made the payment and previous confirmation has been sent from. Assuming (dangerous I know!) that no problems or issues have arise in the next day or so, I’ll then post the full bus lists this weekend. Hope all ok but feel free to DM or email me as needed. Thanks, Paul PS – Also in the process of getting the agreement of the Maltese FA for parking the buses in the official coach park at the stadium
  13. Hi all, quick update on the last few days I’ll be issuing the bus lists this week, on here/Facebook, as well as emailing everyone the exact details of the pickup location and my contact details. I’ve been discussing the finer details with the coach company and the closest we can get picked up is about a 5 minute walk away from the bar, as the road in front of the bar isn’t suitable to have 5 coaches double parked! This means we will need to leave the bar by 19.00, as the pickup will be between 19.10 to 19.15 – the coach company says the area will be quite congested, so can’t afford to be parked up for too long. For this reason, we will be departing the pickup point at 19.15 at the very latest, so if you’re not there by this time, we will leave without you and as this is your fault, there will be no alternative transportation or refund offered. Sorry to be so blunt but there is no option to keep the coaches there because you’ve not got there on time.
