#1

Hello. Just wondering if anyone else will be traveling on the Eastern Escape trip that starts on July 27th. If so, let’s chat.

hey there…I will be going for this eastern Escape trip on 15June08.I really look forward to it and start counting down now. [br][br]The only thing that i am still wondering is as to how much pocket money i need to cover these 12 days trip (as i notice a lot of the meal is not included in this trip). Hopefully, someone who has been to this tour previously can give us some suggestion.[br][br][br]

Hey there…I’m booked on this tour! So excited already and really looking forward to it. Where abouts are you from? I hail from Sydney AUS…


#4

Getting worried now…i am totally confused as to how much local currency i need to change/get before hand. [br][br]i noted that out of the 6 countries for EASTERN ESCAPE,4 countries use their own currencies. (Czech, Hungary,Poland, Slovakia). I dont know how expensive/cheap stuff over there… [br][br]My last resort will be my credit card which is quite expensive to use taking into account of the unfavourable exchange rate plus foreign currency transaction bank charges.[br][br][br]could anyone give me advice?[br][br]

kin i suggest looking at the lonely planet website for an idea of prices, then going to www.xe.com to get a rough idea of what it costs in AUD[br][br]for example with poland http://www.lonelyplanet.com/worldguide/poland/money-and-costs the cost of a litre of milk is zl 1.80 and according to xe.com that’s about 87c AUD[br][br]hope that helps :)[br][br]Leeana[br]Canberra, Australia[br]Spirit of Europe 16 Sept 08[br]+ London Stopover[br]+ Edinburgh Minibreak
