#5

Our trip looks to be almost full since the date is now by request only!!! Hope to meet some new people as we get closer and closer to the date!


#6

That’s so cool, must be a popular time to go! Can’t believe the Australian dollar has hit all it’s all time high against the Euro!! Perfect timing…I know what I’LL be buying tomorrow! :slight_smile:


#7

have any of you guys gotten a more comprehensive optionals list? i know this question’s been asked 500 times but I’m just super excited. I really am looking forward to the blue grottos. also does anyone know if we stop in salzburg austria for the sound of music tour? im a huge sap for that movie.


#8

Hey Jackie,

The only extra stuff I’ve got is on the website…if you go to the Mega European page under trips, if you scroll down on the right theres an adobe attachment which goes into more detail on each day! I’ve been saying I want to do the Sound of Music tour haha But on the intinerary it doesn’t say anything about it! And I’m really looking forward to Greece and the French Riviera.

Hey guys i am doing the Mega European July 4th! So excited! I am abit worried about how much money i should take over in cash as opposed to just using my debit/mastercard??? Any ideas??


#10

Honestly, as long as you have a working debit/credit card, you really don’t need to fly into England with any. Once in the airport you can easily find an ATM machine and withdrawal all the pounds you need before your trip leaves. ATMs are the best way to get larger sums of cash out. If you’re REALLY concerned about not having any cash in the right currency, I would buy the minimalist amount possible. My AAA travel store lets you buy packs of 50 pounds. That will EASILY get you through your first day in London.


#11

if you are getting cash out at atms just make sure you are aware of any fees your bank may charge- i know i get charged 4% for using my card to get out cash o’seas. may still work out better (and safer) but just check first.


#12

just thought id bump this up to see if there’s any others out there going on all or part of the trip =)

Hi Everyone

This time in 11 weeks we will all be in the Swiss Alps!!! Woo!!!

My name is Anita, I’m from Sydney. I’ll be travelling solo on this trip for the London to Istanbul leg.

I will be in London from july 2-9 and then I’ll be back on the 17th ready for our tour. Would love to catch up with anyone who is around then. I think we should all do something the night before for sure!!

I think I already have most of you on facebook but if you would like to add me my email is: anitaleonieg@yahoo.com.au

See you all soon

Anita :slight_smile:
