Hey, Great to see more than my brother and I going on this tour, better now that there are a few more doing the same tour at the same time.
Read all the tips, this is going to be my first big trip overseas, my brother has done an overseas on his own and his tips are good. I guess the trick is to pack light and pack stuff that you can mix 'n match. You can always pick up cheap stuff overseas and don’t forget, the last thing you want to do is to have to unload stuff at the airport because you have too much stuff. Last thing you want to be doing ladies is to lug a heavy case around Europe for no reason… beside, there is a weight limit to what we can take.
Alot of people have suggsted to take a Backpack on wheels, which is what we are doing (Caribee) Brand Backpacks are pretty good and sturdy.
Be great to catch up with you all at the Clink as it sounds like most of us are going to be staying there around the same time, meeting up for a drink sounds great.
My brother and I are from Sydney, sounds like we are scattered from all over the country. If you haven’t already booked your Accommodation, now is a good time to get it done, don’t forget we are going in a time where everything will be booked out because of the Olympics and prices are already quite high. Staying at the Clink 78 just makes things really easy because that is where the EuroClub & EuroHotel Tours Depart from, makes it easier and is hassle free that way.
Yeah, not long to go now… don’t forget to get your currencies sorted, though there are some really great suggestions floating round, like the ANZ Travel Card that is worth looking into. Get in while the dollar is in your favour at the moment. Things are pretty expensive in Europe and don’t forget… you’ll need coin to pay for the toilets going around Europe!!!.
