Hi all,

I hope we're all well, I'm not on here as much anymore but was hoping for some advice.

Alongside running Away Days I'm also a teacher at a private healthcare (charity) hospital in the East Midlands where I've been for eight years. Yesterday we were informed that the NHS would be buying the hospital and briefed on how redundancy would work. We were also told three times it wouldn't be a TUPE transfer so no jobs were guaranteed the other side and if there were jobs, we'd have to apply for them.

Can anyone explain how / why this wouldn't be a TUPE? Not surprisingly a lot of folk are freaking out and I figured TWTD was the best place for answers.

Cheers,

Josh

Video editing fans...
at 23:48 11 Oct 2019

I always put together a video after my random adventures and have posted a few on here before. This one is a bit delayed as my computer has had a meltdown...so I decided to edit this short video using my phone.

2mins doesn’t really do the trip justice as it was one of the most physically demanding things I’ve ever done. It all started in Helsinki where we purchased two bikes before getting the night train to Kolari. From here, we cycled 400 miles across 6 days on truly terrible / undersized bikes with 20kg rucksacks on our backs to Tromso passing through Finland, Sweden and into Norway. I “slept” in a hammock which was redundant in the swamps of Lapland and at 3am one morning in the midst of a storm our one man tent gave way so we were forced out and onto our bikes...we didn’t finish cycling until 8pm that day. The reward for our stupidity / effort was £10 pints and watching Tromsø play...still not sure if it was worth it!!!

I hope you enjoy the video. It’s all filmed on a GoPro, DJI Spark and then edited using an app called Splice. I do the videos as I find it a good way to reflect and look back on these things, I also like to think they inspire some folk to get out there and explore and test themselves.

Enjoy

KLM Longhaul...
at 18:57 1 Oct 2019

TWTD...my first stop for travel advice these days...

Has anyone used KLM for long-haul and/or their bidding system for upgrades? I’ve used city hoppers before and it’s always been pleasant and with the BA sale being pretty poor I decided to have a random look on KLM...ended up finding good priced flights to a place I’ve never heard of called Bonaire off coast of Venezuela...it’s 13hrs on one of their A330 and I’m undecided if it’s worth it for a week holiday!?!

Just back from Scandinavia...
at 10:36 22 Aug 2019

cycled from northern Finland, through Sweden and up into Norway, finishing in Tromso where I manged to go and watch Tromso vs Lillestrom!!!

Hell of a trip physically but was nice to finish off watching some football...which was made better by so many fans noticing my ITFC shirt and coming up to speak to me about our club!!! A few older fans spoke of our past whilst a few youngsters were quick to point out our relegation and Norwich's promotion...all in good banter but was just nice to know despite our recent relegation, we're still known and loved in even remote parts of the world!!!

Morten Gamst Pederson was playing for Tromso...he stood out despite his age whilst Tromso also handed a debut to a Man United youth player called Aidan Barlow. Again, he stood out and had a better second half when played out wide. Lillestrom spent most the time on the deck and only scored from a dubious penalty. Game finished all even at 1-1.

Now to get back to preparing these three new ITFC beers and the release of Ale'N Shearer

Away Days Beer - New...
at 09:22 18 Jul 2019

Beer releases!!!

Hi all,

I'm presently working on some new beers set for release later in the year. A few of them will be for a wider football affiliation but some will have ITFC links. I'm presently preparing the release of Ale'N Shearer which should be out late August.

Yesterday I put out some social media feelers for one I'm presently working on for Terry Butcher. There are some pics of the first drafts on our Twitter / Instagram / Facebook @awaydaysbeer...link here to Twitter.

I’m unsure about the name at present so am open to other suggestions? Butcher’s Bandage, Butcher’s Last Stand and Butcher’s Courage are a few being mentioned.

As always, thanks for the support and stay tuned for a few more ITFC themed beers coming out later in the year 🙌🏼🍺⚽️

Helsinki Blues

I'm sure there is a few of you and I'm hoping you might be able to help...

I land in Helsinki on 12th August and my plan is for me and my mate to buy two cheap used bikes and then jump on the overnight train to Kolari before getting off and cycling the 300miles to Tromso...however...my issue at present is finding a bike.

If you know of any bikes shops / friends who might have contacts for such bikes would you might dropping me a comment or DM. So far only one shop has got back to me and they're not certain they'll have anything suitable.

Thanks,

Josh

Shin splints...
at 08:48 18 Jun 2019

A condition I'd heard of before but always considered to be something a hypochondriac might get...until now!!!

I've been in the gym a lot the last couple of years...lifting weights for the most part with HIIT circuits in-between, however, the last six months I've begun running more (on road) and have developed shin splints!!! I've left rest gaps when the legs have started to hurt and after about 3 weeks off I started running again 2 weeks back, doing 5k every other night...they're back though!!!

Has anyone got tips for shifting / managing these?

Season long accumulators...
at 09:05 1 May 2019

Anyone got any longshot accumulators for season? One came up on my Bet365 account last night with a £8 cashout (before Barnsley's promotion confirmed)...it's 1600/1...

Barnsley - Promoted (IN)
Salford - Promoted
Derby - Promoted
Lincoln - Promoted (IN)
Liverpool - Win League
Juventus - Win League (IN)
Bayern - Win League
Barcelona - WIn League (IN)

Would imagine it's up slightly now as Barnsley were 11/4...not holding my breath on Salford and Derby though.

Head over to Away Days Facebook / Instagram pages (@awaydaysbeer) and have a look at our latest posts. We're after feedback on beer again but also giving the opportunity to folk to pitch name ideas or players they'd like to see celebrated with some new beers. Robo-Hop was suggested yesterday in celebration of Crouchy which I think is the best so far...TWTD I'm sure can come up with some gems though

Thanks,
