Come November winter in London has all but set in and homesickness becomes a reality for many. Some cures for homesickness include drinking yourself to sleep every night (temporary fix), putting a life-sized cutout of your mum next to your bed (weird) or, if you’re a Kiwi:
Coming to Cardiff to watch the All Blacks flog the Welsh!
That’s right, make homesickness a thing of the past by watching your national treasures put to bed any hopes of winning the spirited Welsh team might have had. Renowned for being rugby mad, the Welsh won’t be a pushover, and the home-country crowd will be a bantering force to be reckoned with, but with a 30-33 win-loss record against the Taffys you’d think the greatest sporting team to ever run, step and dive the earth are a bit of a shoe-in (or gumboot-in).
More than that, Wales will feel like home! It’s cold, rainy, and mostly farmland. Bonus! And the placenames are equally unpronounceable — every Kiwi who comes from Taumata whakatangi hangakoauau o tamatea turi pukakapiki maunga horo nuku pokai whenua kitanatahu will feel at home when they drive past Wales’ Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch.
Oh, and Wales has more than nine million sheep, sooooo….
Don’t miss this chance to see the All Blacks in action at the world-famous Principality Stadium, formerly known as Millennium Stadium, the site of many epic rugby battles as well as the 2017 Champions League final. This place is one of international rugby’s holiest sites and the perfect setting for your slightly-drunken sledging.
Did we mention drinking? Because for just £5 you get to banter up to expert levels we’ll be including a 1.5 hour, that’s 90 minute, open-bar hour of power prior to the match, as well as private, round-trip coach travel to Cardiff and back, so you don’t have to worry about offending anybody apart from your fellow rugby patriots.
Sound choice, boyos (and girlos)? Then book your spot now on Stoke Travel’s magical rugby/sheep perving tour to Wales!
