Yeah lots planning and studing is great, but then again, sometimes just winging it is awesom as well.[br][br]I did a month in canada and all i had planned was my flite home and a few night accom. Turned out to be an aesom awesom trip


#6

a lot of people have told me not to plan it out… but what they dont realise is that my research has been on what there is to see and do… not when I am definately doing it. It’s just that in some countries (like Hungary) I wouldnt know what to see and do or what is special, so atleast if i do get some free time I can choose where I would want to go :)[br][br]At this stage all i know for certain is my time in london before the tour, then edinburgh for 4 days then the tour then back to germany then back to italy… thats it… oh except for london, I know for certain that i am doing the Ceremony of Keys on the night of the 13th September cos u have to book it in.[br][br]If i hadnt done any research then i wouldnt have found out about the Ceremony of Keys and would have been annoyed that I had missed out ;D[br][br]Leeana[br]Canberra, Australia[br]Spirit of Europe 16 Sept 08[br]+ London Stopover[br]+ Edinburgh Minibreak
