A rather strange week of football fixtures has seen 3 home games for Bristol City this week. We still have one of those to go, with tomorrows game against the nomadic MK Dons, the first two games saw 12 goals being scored, with an even 6-6 split.

It all started so well last Saturday against Port Vale when we went 4-0 up after about 30 minutes. Since then it's gone downhill somewhat. We managed to hang on for a 4-2 win that day, before losing 4-2 to Barnet on Tuesday evening. It's not what we were hoping for at the start of the season and the pressure is already starting to build on our manager.

Oddly, they are home again the following Saturday, but I won't be around to see that one. We will be heading for our 2 week holiday. Initially we going to Berlin for 5 days, then we head down to Slovenia for a week, before heading back to Berlin for a few more days.

Having visited Berlin last year, we have a pretty good idea about what we plan to do there. Slovenia is however an unknown quantity, so we've been spending lot's of time reading about the place. It looks fab and we are expecting a similar holiday to our previous trips to Prague and Vilnius.

We have also been thinking about going to Valencia at the start of November. We were hoping combine a tip to a very exciting looking city with a chance to Teenage Fanclub playing with the Go-Betweens. We can fly pretty cheaply to Valencia from Bristol, so that's no problem, however hotel availability and costs are proving to be a bit of a problem. For some reason the end of the first week in November appears to show a sharp decline in the amount of affordable hotel rooms that are around.

I guess that there could be some sort of trade fair going on, or maybe those two bands have started a huge rush on trips to Valencia.
