#12

Hey, Yeah the Red Star Special is the 36 day that starts and finishes in Berlin, starts on the 15th June and ends on the 20th July, if that is what you are doing or if your tours ends on the 20th, you will be on my tour. I have already talked to one girl on her who is starting her tour in Estonia I think and she is on my trip.[br]Anyway thats cool if you are on my tour, you travelling alone or with friends?[br]Talk soon Stacy


#13

Hey Joey,[br][br]like dmcozz, I’m also on the Red Star leaving Berlin on the 29th, so we’ll prolly see each other for part of the trip! I’ll only be arriving in Berlin on the 29th, as I’ll hopefully be visiting Corsica the week before, but I’m going to assume that we’re all staying at the Wombats hostel that night, and look forward to meeting you all then![br]Besides that, my name is Robin, 23, from Nova Scotia, Canada, but currently living in Poitiers, France.


#14

hey guys and girls, looks like some of us have a bit of extra time to kill in berlin since the tour looks like it doesn’t really start until late arvo and finishes up after brekky on the way back. Oh well, more time to explore berlin[br] hey robin, i see they have printed the itinerary for this years trips. see ours is listed as guaranteed departure now. least i don’t have to worry about it being cancelled. i think!![br] Anyone thinking about taking a video camera?[br][br]All i know that the time remaining won’t take long to pass by? all i know is that the last 4 weeks are going to very busy,:slight_smile: [br][br]dale


#15

Hey Dale,[br][br]I got the itinerary printout too. It mentions a few things about Belarus visas and stuff, but our tour isn’t going to Belarus! lol. I think they just didn’t take the time to update it properly since last year’s Red Star went to Minsk instead of Vilnius. [br]I won’t be bringing a video camera, but I can take short videos on my digital camera. They aren’t the best quality, but I can’t afford a video camera anyways. lol[br]How’s the visa coming? My friend in Paris just picked mine up this morning, and is sending it by mail this afternoon! (also can’t afford the one day trip to Paris and back) So excited that it will soon be taken care of! [br]Less than two months! :):):):):)[br]

gday robin[br]ha, you must of read it in a bit more detail, didn’t even notice that part!:)[br]oh yeh on the visa, ummm???, travel agent was going to check up on it. hopefully the girl that did the organizing is back at work next week. i had to ask when they send out the tickets since i leave oz 10days before hand, will have to keep on their back about it once june hits because geez time will fly and before we know it, we will be on tour.;D i bet you are glad that you have got yours though;D[br] yeh, can’t blame yeh not getting a video camera, sounds like you have the same money tree as me, a bonsei tree!!!;D But in saying that i will most likely buy a video camera. just haven’t decided which sort yet. If i get a good one(h.definition)i might be able to send some of yehs some footage after the tour. I wouldn’t want to loose it though!!![br] [br]please don’t remind me;):p;D, only 6wks before i disappear. rain, soon, please, please!!!:slight_smile: got my bag half packed already. Plenty of bloody cords for different things though. [br][br]have a good day, catch yeh8-)


#17

Hello again! [br]Sadly no visa yet… sigh. There was a problem with the mail. But hopefully I’ll get it by next week! lol. [br]Oh I wish I could buy a video camera! I have the feeling that there will be some pretty amazing/fun videos to take during the trip;D;D


#18

Hi Joey, I’m with some of the other people on the Red Star tour but I’m sure we’ll all bump into eachother in Berlin before the tours start. I’m 18 from Canada and going alone so i cant wait to meet more people on our trips! See you in Germany![br][br]Kelsy


#19

gday, haven’t heard back about my visa yet either. be ringing next week just to make sure. I don’t really want to have make extra trips to adelaide. Fuel is so so cheap!!!:slight_smile: [br] Video camera, yeh still deciding. Have to see what extras my computer may need before i decide on format. if i get my act together and still have everything i could try and copy some stuff to a dvd. high definition has its problems on where you can play it but[br]Anyway catch yehs later8-)[br]Dale.
