You're a champ Coggo. I've read through everything and it definitely cleared a lot up for me, so thank you!
My sister and I are doing the Grand Europeon in July after a week in Sicily and a week in London. Can't wait. I do have a couple of questions that I'm hoping you're able to help me with though.
Travel insurance - We have paid for Cover-More insurance with our travel agent. I'm just wondering if this is the only type of insurance one needs, or should we be getting another type of travel insurance as well?
Skydiving - Sorry if this is a dumb question, but was there a weight restriction with skydiving in Switzerland? I'm assuming there will be just like Aus, but I haven't been able to find anything written about this (but I'm probably as blind as a bat ha!)
Wombats - was it relatively easy to get yourself from Heathrow to wombats hostel? I've looked at trusty Google for reference but wanted a human opinion haha.
London - Also I read that you did the Hop on Hop off tour. Did you find this took you to generally everywhere you wanted to go or did you still need a few other days to do the other things?
Money - In regards to allowances each day, when they say budget for 50-70 per day, do you talk about that in Aus or Euros? I think I'm making myself confused by it all so just wanted to get a clear vision of what was needed.
Optional Activities - Was there anywhere that you found that listed the optional activities prices before you left or only when you received your pack a few weeks before departure?
Anyways, I think that's all for now. Thanks for taking the time to read this and answer what are probably silly questions haha.
