It is definitely without a heavy heart, but with a wooden liver, that this phase draws to a close. World Cup Brazil you have been superb, you had all the ingredients I remembered from going to the Germany World Cup and many more surprises of your own.

As is now par for the course, England fell at the first, but as was the case in Germany that did not stop a fantastic party from rolling on.

I am knackered, my body hurts and I think that I may well sleep for a few days once I arrive at my next destination which is Santiago Chile, which I should be at by 08:00 local time, tomorrow morning.

  End of Phase 2...

I have to say a huge thanks to Parker John for joining me for the last 10 days, which have been a "right royal laugh". It has been emotional!!

If anyone has a spare liver they wish to donate please send details on here.

Back into the full time blogging again now, with some truly amazing places on my list of things to do over the next month.

Let's get this show on the road again.

Onwards!!
