Eindhoven Trip

Post by Neil Johnson » Fri May 18, 2018 7:18 pm

Haven't had personal food and drink recommendations from a local Eindhoven lad I know yet for our 3 nights there.

From a quick look-see there is a park with a lake for swimming, outside beer gardens and quite a few brew pubs.

Having worked in Holland their special (real) beers are great and their food is excellent and hugely portioned.

German and Belgium borders are nearby for those wanting a bit more variety.

I expect there will be at least 20 Darlo fans going, but there could be a whole load more.

20? Is that a typo?

not a problem, there’s a website called trip advisor for that

Outside beer gardens ? Wonder if they’ll catch on over here

We’ll save those countries for future European adventures

I’d expect at least 200 to make the trip.

Out of interest, who will be making the trip on here?
I'll be going along with my boy, a mate and his son, and Grimsby Quaker and his 2 boys, so there's 7 of Neil's 20 straight off.

Just noticed on the club Twitter advert for Eindhoven 2018 t shirts. They look boss and I'd get one if I was going.

There’s about 12 of me and my friends making the trip.

I fully expect around 500 there.

It’s a smash and grab one for me and my two lads...there and back in a day with KLM from Humberside via Schipol. Fly out 0620 and land back at 2120. I might have a couple of teatime snifters at Schipol. Will have to peg it at final whistle but am looking forward to a surreal day...planes, trains and automobiles

I'm working in Netherlands the whole of the week before but have to fly back on the Friday before the match as I have a wedding to attend!
