Just curious as to how many people have done over how many years? My first was Poland 2015. Think I’ve did 12 altogether, been away for a year and a half now so missed a few. Miss the craic and the mates I’ve made through them, looking forward to my next one whenever that is! 

If there’s already a similar thread feel free to lock and point me in the direction of it Smile

35. Could be a while before we get to add to it again. Always said that there will be times in your life when you can't travel. In my case as the kids were younger and financial circumstances I used to do 1 away per campaign then  it went to one a year and the past decade I've probably missed only about four. Roll on the good times again.

45 at this stage including tournaments. Italy at Giants Stadium was the first. Switzerland last year the last. Would kill for the chance to add to it.

Also counting tournament matches, only 11 for me so far (my debut was Germany in 2014) so I clearly have some catching up to do. LOL

In normal times I would have added Slovakia last month to my most recent trip to Geneva. Like yourself, I'd love to at least know when and where our next one will be seeing as everything is up in the air atm. Cry

11. I use it as an excuse to see countries I've never been to. That's always an incentive when the team might be cat to watch.

Have 16 done. First was Bordeaux in 2016 and got seriously hooked since then. Had Bratislava booked so that would have been another and have Sofia and Cardiff sorted already and plans for Finland so here’s hoping they go ahead but hard to know what will happen at this stage.

20 including the Euros in 2012 & 2016. 

First away game was San Marino in 2007 and most recent (excluding the Euros) was Poland away in Warsaw in 2015 Shocking 

Best trip either Georgia away in 2014 or “its Rome” 2009

Not surprised by that when you got to meet the handsome Mayo contingent on route. LOL
