Schedule for Euro 2012

 

Euro2012Schedule

This is the latest schedule and is currently correct, although almost every detail has been changed at least once.

From my flight out, changes to train times (from booking the ticket for 00.54 and receiving it for 02.54), and accommodation suddenly not being able to accommodate me.
As you may be aware people have been accused of cashing in on the tournament and increasing prices. I can confirm this is correct, I was searching for accommodation for the night of the Ukraine’s first match in Kiev back in December and found this.

I did manage to book accommodation for my entire trip at what seemed like a reasonable price. however over the coming months I received emails stating that they were not able to accommodate me, or that they were closing down. So as I tried to book again I found that prices had gone up more. Undeterred I accepted the fact that due to the distances involved between the cities I could at least use the train travel between cities as accommodation. Looked at booking train tickets but the schedule was only announced at the end of May.Anyway I have booked accommodation, but am waiting to see what awaits when I get to each city. I expect to have more tales to tell.
