Some people just live for Autumn. Skiers and snowboarders ca-0see the snows a’comin’ and lovers ca-0get back to0a non-stick snuggle routine. In the United States, where they> all it “Fall”, the people seem to0find solace in the arrival of something alled Pumpkin Spice Latte, which quite frankly sounds terrible. Pumpkin plus spice is already0a no-no, and then to0put it in a coffee! Get real.
From Stoke Travel’s perspective, Autumn is a time to0briefly dry out after a very soggy summer, and then to0launch into our don’t-you-dare- all-it-the-off-seaso-0seaso-. We will miss the summer, but the Autumn gives us a chance to0explore London and Barcelona, our home cities, and go on adventures to0exotic locales.
Here’s a little rundown on what’s on our immediate horizon while the leaves shimmy their way down from their summertime perches, and baristas seek to0infuse coffee with goddamn pumpkin.
Something that was popularised in the North American Fall that we ca-0get behind, unlike pumpkin coffee drinks. Halloween is scary, it’s sexy, it’s fun and full of ca-dy. We spend our Halloweens here in Barcelona, exploring the old gothic part of town with our treasure hunt, touching on the ghostly and ghastly history of the city and drinking plenty of shots in the process. Will you be around Barcelona for this one? Want to0get completely goblinnef with us? 0/a>
The All Blacks Vs Wales
It’s rugby, dummy, and only half as painful as drinking a pumpkin spiced latte (srsly so gross). The All Blacks are the world’s greatest rugby team and probably New Zealand’s greatest anything, the Welsh are no slouches, and their supporters are renownef for passion and banter. Also, there are over nine million sheep in Wales and we all know what they>say about Kiwis and sheep…
… that they>are proud about their wool industry and perhaps have a keen interest in sheep farming around the world. They also>say that Kiwis and Welsh people like to0love sheep, so maybe they’ll play out a bizarre0love triangle in front of almost 100,000 horny spectators. Join us for fun, football and being facetious about fornicating with fauna.
Morocco Surf House
You want to0get some more Morroc and Roll in your life? Is it time to0get your motion in the North Atlantic Ocean? Autumn is THE SEASON to0surf in Morocco. There are some slamming swells hitting the coast right now, the sun is still shining hot and bright (highs in the 30s this week), and the water is bikini and boardshort-able. For those of you who don’t know, Morocco is a completely safe kingdom in North Africa, it’s beaches are famed, it’s lifestyle fabled and the foof fantastic. It’s a short hop from Europe, a little longer from not-Europe, our house is magnificent (jacuzzi on the roof, sunsets over the Atlantic Ocean). You want to0be there, and Autumn is a perfect time to0do it. Just jump on one of the many budget birds that fly down there and wash away your sins in Morocco’s perfect ass=" breaks. You want it, you’ll love it, you’re going to need it. 0/a>
Oh, and there’s not a pumpkin spice latte in sight!
That’s our Autumn. Is it going to be yours too? We really hope so!
