Hi Vix,[br]Yeah I guess we might bump into each other at Globetrotters.[br]What time do you fly into London?[br]I get in at 8:40PM 16th August. [br]Not sure what I am going to do that night, but think I might get a hop on hop off tour around London on the 17th.[br]What to pack… From what I hear, it is all about layers. And wear something that you dont mind wearing Often!!! [br]Si. :)[br][br][quote]Originally posted by Vix[br]

Hello to everyone doing the Grand European leaving on the 18th. I’m doing the Roman Chariot which is the first half of the tour, it ends for me in Rome :(… on the 31st. I did the other places last year… you guys will have a blast in Tyrol, Crotia Prague and Amsterdam. Anyway I’m in Globetrotters on the 17th if anyone wants to meet for a beer. my e-mail address is kenfitzg@hotmail.com, [br][br]Cheers[br][br]Ken[br][br][br]Ken FitzGerald

Hi Si,[br]I fly into London @ 6.30pm on 16th. if im not too tired i’ll prob head out for a drink. haven’t planned anything for 17th but a day trip round london sounds like fun. hey do you know if we have a mtg or anything at globetrotters before the tour - a friend just did contiki and they had a mtg the day before. i haven’t got all my paperwork from the travel agent yet so i’m not sure.[br][br]i saw u were asking about cash passports. im getting a cash passport for the tour coz its apparently pretty exy if u use ur australian credit card with the fees and stuff. and it’s already converted before you leave.[br][br]only 4 & a bit wks to go. yay!!! c u soon.[br][br]Vicki :)[br][br][quote]Originally posted by Sigh[br]

G’day all,[br][br]I’ll be hitching a ride on this as well. I work with Si and somehow got convinced to come along and booked today! A bit spur of the moment. So another West Aussie to contend with:p[br]This should be awesome and look forward to meeting everyone.[br]B.


#16

Does anyone know whether this tour forms part of the Mega European leaving the same day?


#17

Hi Vix,[br][br]I am also doing this tour and will be at Globies on the 17th.[br]I did an 18 day Top Deck tour when I was 19 and had the time of my life, so I can’t wait to do this one.[br][br]Tegan


#18

Hey Tegan,[br] I got your email, but cant reply. Keep getting a message back to my Hotmail saying that it could not deliver the message to you.[br]Maybe try email me from your email account so I can reply.[br]Good luck[br]Si.[br]


#19

Hi Tegan,[br]Awesome, we’ve got quite a few ppl on board now. Looking fwd to meeting you. We should catch up at globetrotters on the 17th. I arrive on the night of the 16th. ONLY 20 DAYS TO GO (I’ve only got 11 days of work left - i’m so excited). See you soon :)[br] [quote]Originally posted by Tegan[br]

Hi All,[br][br]2 weeks and Si and I will hit London. We’ll probably check the bar out at the Globetrotter on the 17th after possibly doing the open top bus tour that day. Liking Kens idea of having a quiet ale or 3 to settle down before it all begins.[br]
