The World Idleness Tour 06

Robs travelling goals were to drink foreign beers, meet foreign people (and take the piss out of them with other English people), lie on beaches, get a sun tan and avoid doing anything that may be too strenuous or challenging for at least a year!!! Phils travelling goals were to come out of the closet. This blog will allow you to see whether we can meet these demanding assignments we have set ourselves!!!
