I'm still up for it, though having read on SFUK about Renzo's academy in NY, I think that might be a good idea as well/instead. At least they (nearly) speak English in America.

Well it's prob not gonna be a regular thing, so i reckon a visit to a couple of places would be a good idea.

What sort of dates we talking?

Alright then, what about a week or so at Renzo's in NY, and a week or so at Royler's in Rio? I'm up for going for longer than that if anyone else is up for it though.

As for times, I think end of Summer/start of Autumn was suggested. Summer here is winter in Brazil, but I think that their spring and autumns are still plenty hot anyway.

Well i'm starting work in Newcastle on 27th of this month, so moving prob next Monday.

Give me a bit of time to get settled and get saving, then I'll whizz out the credit card for the trip.

Aug/Sept time sounds great for me, don't think it'll look too good to start work then take a few weeks off straight away. :o)

And as long as possible for me, it's not gonna be a regular thing so why not make it a trip of a lifetime sorta thing, sorry, that did sound awfully gay!

i've got abt 4 weeks holiday i reckon before April when it gets reinstated, so not too fussy abt going for as long as possible.

Anymore thoughts? Anyone got prices for flights/hotels/etc. in NJ and Rio? Or any contacts around the place?

I thought Barra as well, apparently if you tell them you're coming, they'll help you sort out accomodation, and give you deals on training etc. I only said Royler's school since Rob wants to train with Royler.

Yes Rob, that did sound gay, but I'm used to you/it by now. Two weeks, a month, it's all good for me...I hardly ever use much time off anyway (until I have to get rid), so that won't be a problem. Getting the money will be fine too, especially as it's cheaper over there.

Flights I'm going to start looking into, and as for training and accommodation, I think Renzo's place does the same thing as Barra if you tell them you're coming- they'll help you find somewhere to stay etc.

But as the ladies know (and Rob wants to find out), I'm easy.

i personally feel that would be great to travel and meet people, but we would gain more byu staying at one place

Possibly gain more, and i can see where you're coming from, but a trip like this ain't gonna be a regular thing, that's why i reckon it'd be excellent to make the most of it and go mad, 2-3 weeks visiting different academies.

Definately wanna do some time in the US and then visit Rio.

big waste of time and money, if you travel around you dont make those connections where the guys at the academy will learn your game. you will loose training time whilst jet lagged, loose time while traveling. loose thousands of dollars in airfare and hotels.

i wont be coming if this is what your doing. its up to you guys do it if u want, i just cant waste time and money like that

Dunno, I wanna use it as a holiday as well as just for training. So while it'd be good to properly make connections with people and all that, it'd also be nice to see a couple of different places while we're out there.

I suppose it depends on what Adam thinks as well- it was his original idea after all, and I only suggested New York cos it'd be a cool place to visit and Renzo's place looks well good.

Like I said, I'm easy, but I'd really like to go to both places.

A nice idea would be 2 weeks in NY, 2 weeks in Rio, but that's gonna be a bit expensive. Could maybe do one week in one place and two in the other?

We'll have to see what everyone thinks really, also check and compare flight prices...and maybe ask around see if anyone else wants to go. Adam might not even want to do NY at all. Like I said, that was just my idea to see other places and split up the journey.

I'm injured (Dom's fault), should be back next week since it doesn't hurt as much now. And that's a real 'should be back', not a Rob Brown stylee no-show 'should be back'.

I'd come down tonight just to watch, but I'm having my inside leg measured by a gay man. Don't ask.

Speak to you next Monday or Wednesday or something.

suits you sir!
See you next week

Yup, it's not just a training bonanza (gee where are these gay words coming from?)

I haven't had a holiday for 4 years, so it's def. a holiday for me.

I reckon 1 week in NY, and 1 week in Rio, then hopefully another 1 week, but doing whatever anyone else likes.

I think we definately need to split it up, and visit different places and see how different the academies are.

Oh yeah, and spend lots of time chillin' on the beach in Rio! :o)

I'll be training on Friday, marc's out of town tho. My last training session with you guys before I move to Newcastle on Sat/Mon.

You cock.

Actually, that sounds fine. The cheapest flights all seem to be September-October anyway.
