Sorry guys, but I have decided to stay in Brazil. Till the end of the year I will try to firm my Portuguese foundations and work in a bar here in Rio while looking for internships. Dont worry it ain't about a woman... yet!

I am however applying for traineeships in the UK as well as Brazil. If nothing comes up I will have to rethink my situation and probably come back to the UK beginning of next year. It was not an easy decision to make especially due to the fact that the only thing really holding me in Europe at the moment is my wish to keep on playing ball with you guys, but other than that I have nothing going for me.
I just feel like I am doing the right thing by using my gap half year learning a new language instead of sitting on my ass in London waiting for Monday’s training for an opening on the PA squad.

However I will continue playing paintball here. I showed up on my own to a walk on tourney yesterday and was placed on a team with a bunch of first time players. We basically got murdered almost all day long, especially as we were playing with Tipmanns against Ego 06 and other high end markers, but I did get lucky on a couple run-troughs and managed to impress the team that was hosting the event (and won by a big margin!) enough to be invited to a training session.
They seem to take it quite seriously and are thinking about fielding a squad at the world cup in Orlando but I have quickly learned that what Brazilians say and do is usually worlds apart! We will see. Are the Lions going?

In any case I will keep up my training and hope to be a better player for it when I return. One thing that became apparent yesterday is that I will have to rely even more on my field awareness do to the lack of a proper communication system like we use.

Anyway I wish you guys all the best and hope you kick ass in the busy months ahead and hope you will be willing to take me back on my return!

I don't think they'll let you back on the team out of pure jealousy. Hmm, winter in the UK or Summer in Brazil, tough decision. I'm sure you'll be welcomed back. Keep up the practice.

We will not be doing Orlando.
Best of luck mate,

Hi my favorite troublemaker!

I think your choice was the best decision, enjoy your life under the sun and don't forget us when you will be lucky enough to have a nice girl in your bed. (give some for me ;] )

Best of luck
