Most Memorable Travel Experience
Ahhhh maaaan! There's been a lot now. Thankfully the good massively outweighs the bad.

Definitely winning the Ashes Test in Melbourne by an innings and then some was amazing. Partying with the likes of Jimmy Saville (the cricket guy, not the pervert) and the Barmy Army afterwards was simply brilliant.
"I have not been short of invitations to other clubs and have been received more warmly by Everton than I have by Liverpool." - Bill Shankly on his retirement. There you go, that's one for the Kopites.
