Yeah it was abit of a shame, but it’s all ok! I bought a house which is why… money isn’t there like it used to be haha! The good news is I will still have about 6 weeks leave when I get back so I should be able to take another 2 months off next year and hopefully by then I will have enough money saved to do the Russia - Scandi trip. Travel takes time
I always travel alone, and going in 2010 on the Pioneer was fine, but I found that being alone at Oktoberfest wasn’t the greatest experience. I am hoping that the ANZAC experience is brilliant (like the Pioneer one) and not a let down (because I am so excited for it!!! Its a life long dream!). I think at least, with the ANZAC day tour everyone is there to pay their respects etc, whereas Oktoberfest (as fun as it was in the actual Oktoberfest grounds!) was a little strange - camping with strangers and people didn’t really talk. By no means am I a shy person, but I found it really difficult to converse with people there. I will take on board your advice and pack warm clothes… given we are going to Scandi aswell I think I will be well prepared!
London is fantastic! What sights did you miss out on that you would have liked to have gone to? I kind of just walked around and took it all in last time (as well as the iconic sights and touristy things to do - london eye etc)… i did a fair bit though and have fallen in love with the new europe walking tours (free!) and broadway!
What trips did you do last year?
I did have one question actually… When I was in Berlin it was when I was already on tour. Trying to book my flights there from Dublin is confusing me with all the different airports. TXL is the main one as far as I can see, though SXF seems to be the cheaper one to fly to. Does anyone know about transfers/ taxi services and costs to get to wombats from either airport? From memory, when I stayed in Munich, a taxi to the airport was quite expensive, like 70euro or something.
Getting super excited to meet everyone!!!
