It goes without saying that the events will be more enjoyable if getting there, getting around and finding life?s basics such as accommodation, food and drink, are not a panic inducing chore. So the first item for your rucksack should be a pocket guide to the country and customs and a guide to the language. Look for compact size for your guides, more detailed and expert information will be available when you are there, and look for useful day to day conversation examples and phrases. If you plan to take in more than a few group games then information about internal travel [eg. Trains] and accommodation is a must, and ticketing will, as always, be an issue. If you are in the market for an easily handled, well thought out guides and phrasebooks, the Rough Guide series are deserved market leaders. Here are two we?d recommend.
