Brazil: 12000 mile round trip. Will have to fly back on the Thursday night - skip work on the Friday, but my boss, a die-hard Arsenal fan who understands the situation, has a plan to cover for me - then back out on Sunday night, arrive back in Brazil at 5am on Monday morning, jump in a taxi and back at work by 8am. M-en-t-a-l!
Am 99.9% going to get the flight...just being a wee bit cautious and waiting for the ticket arrangements first, to see what my chances are of getting one.
Very impressive thread.
