Monte Carlo or Bust!

At the end of August, Manchester United are due to play Zenit St. Petersburg in the UEFA Super Cup at the Stade Louis II in Monaco.


The Football Fanatic has been invited to the match and a tour of the principality.


By Jack.


I just looked on Google Earth.

The Stade Louis II is approximately 2.3 miles from Monte Carlo - a distance of about six minutes.


Six minutes on foot? Six minutes by car?

Which?



WHO CARES???




Six minutes from Monte Carlo?


I swear to God, if she doesn't go.............I WILL!!

Maybe they'll drive along the cliffs like in To Catch a Thief! I'm with you, if she turns him down, fill in.

That is a great opportunity! Any chance of touristy photos? Monaco is just one of those places that captures the imagination.

Suburbia said...

Would Jack have you though?!

Katney said...

Will that make it a date?

Monte Carlo? Monte Carlo! Swooooooooonnnnn.....

Kit Brookside said...

Oh, that Jack! She STILL hasn't figured it out?

Maggie May said...

I dare say she will go!

Kitty said...

Oh well done Jack ... methinks he's raising the stakes ;-) x

Liz said...

Maybe you can hide in a duffle bag and be a stow-away! :)

Working mum said...

All expenses paid? This boy has it bad!

PS My husband's thinking of rowing to the Faroes for City's match!

Jennifer said...

Go, Jack! He has a cheering section here...

I am forced to be brief. I am on a borrowed laptop - what a pain these keyboards are.

Praying for my computer, boo-hoo.

tootsie said...

And that's me on the right!

CrazyCath said...

You should go WITH her Jackie!!

merry weather said...

And so you should - Go for it!

GoneBackSouth said...

Wow lucky girl! That'll be a great experience for her (maybe you could sit at the back of the plane in disguise with sunglasses and binoculars).

Jennie said...

If you go, can I come with you? I could do with a holiday. :D

Katney said...

We're all waiting with bated breath...

scrappysue said...

the words 'monte carlo' just sound romantic don't they?

giveaway happening at my place!

Maggie May said...

Maybe you have already gone!!!!!!?????

gigi said...

I want to go too! Can't wait to hear this one!!

This is an offer too good to miss out on. You could offer to carry her bags, couldn't you? Or go as her wardrobe lady? Or tell her that she needs new clothes and you're paying, as long as it in the local boutiques. Or get a job on Monarch Airlines? Although if they're the ones who go to Ireland and not Monte Carlo, you might not like that idea.
Oh- and the white bathing suit looks stunning on you Jackie. Flipping those pancakes really keeps you in shape.

Sandi McBride said...

Oh I'd go, and I'd dream of Cary Grant as a jewel thief the whole time!

Alison Boon said...

Lucky lucky girl. She has to say Yes. She's mad not to. I think Jack must be a very determined young man, good to see a touch of perserverance in today's youngsters.

Lehners in France said...

I'm with Sandi McBride and I'd fight her for Cary Grant!
Jackie I have an award her for you. Pud x

Amrita said...

Hi Jackie, hope everything is ell ith you.

Are you in Montre Carlo?

Kit Brookside said...

Well, it's been a week. Have you applied for a new visa? Tagged you for a meme, too, just to see if that entices you back to the blog (ha!)

meggie said...

Seems you are very busy with plenty from all directions. O to go to Monte Carlo!

bellamocha said...

Hmmmn...I hope the silence from your end is because you managed to get an early ticket to Monte Carlo and are having a wonderful time....?
Sorry if I sound like your mother...just 'checking in' to see that you're okay. Not checking up 'on you', honest! The thing is, my morning coffee tastes different when I'm not reading you blog.

P.S. Come back soon.

Kitty said...

Hi. I was thinking about you today - wondering how you were. I'd have emailed instead of leaving nagging comments on your blog, but there's no email option on your profile.

Hope you're all enjoying the summer holidays.

Take care. x

CrazyCath said...

Did you go?
Or is it the summer holidays kicking off keeping you busy...?

Alison Boon said...

Hi there, hope the week's going well. I left you an award over at my blog. Pop on by sometime.
