There isn’t going to be a great deal of work done at The Working Traveller for the next month as the football World Cup returns to its adopted home for the first time since 1950. If watching three games a day slumped in front of the TV inspires you to a) go out and get some fresh air and b) do something football related, then there are numerous football gap years around the world that can help and where you can be of help.
Bert Trautmann is an unusual inductee into our Travel Hall of Fame. While the former Manchester City goalkeeper isn’t famous for his travels, they had a profound effect on his life, helping to transform the views of this former member of the Hitler Youth.
Every two years work on The Working Traveller slows down as I focus my attention on the festival of football playing out on the TV.
