Hi all![br]Just wondering if anyone has done this trip before and has some info on what to expect? Must see and do kind of things? Places to avoid. Also if your going to be going on this drop in a reply! I’ll be traveling by myself… mate bailed out on me, but hey it’ll be an adventure none the less!

Hi guys,[br][br]I’m on your tour as well but will be joining you guys in Paris as I’m doing a bit of travelling before hand.[br][br]I’m also travelling by myself but I’m sure we’ll all have an absolute ball! Looking forward to meeting (and partying) with you guys in Europe.[br][br]Annette


#4

Leena,[br][br]I just noticed that you are from Canberra. Me too! Perhaps we should catch up before we go.


#5

Awesome!! 2 other peeps!! You’re both from over east… I’m from the most secluded city in the world! Perth!! [br]Yeah Leeana i’m on facebook so i’ll have to jump onto the group when i get a chance! Net at home is down and work has facebook blocked! =0([br]There’s a kinda funny story behind how i ended up traveling by myself that i’ll have to share with you guys. But to be honest i’m really looking forward to meeting a heap of new people and getting right outside my comfort zone![br][br]Look forward to the partying to!!!


#7

hahaha! I know what you mean about getting outside your comfort zone :slight_smile: I talk a lot, and especially so on here, but actually meeting new people is always a scary thing :)[br][br]Leeana[br]Canberra, Australia[br]Spirit of Europe 16 Sept 08[br]+ London Stopover[br]+ Edinburgh Minibreak

Oh Perth! Anywhere that makes Little Creatures must be a good place (although that may be WA in general)! I’m very intrigued by your story Dan. Looking forward to hearing it.[br][br]Leeana (sorry I spelt your name wrong in the last post), I work in Civic as well so we should def sort something out. I’m heading over in less than 3 weeks. Are you guys doing much travelling before or after?[br][br]


#9

It’s ok Nettie :slight_smile: Everyone gets it wrong :slight_smile: We will def have to meet up :slight_smile: This coming month for me though is gonna be pretty busy (I’m heading over to Adelaide in about 2 weeks to do some shopping - i need new clothes!! lol), and heading up to Sydney on one saturday, paintballing for my bday on the sunday, then a week before i leave it IS my bday so will be celebrating that!!) But it’s still doable! just depends on when you want to meet :)[br][br]I leave in just under 5 weeks (YAY!!!) and I will be travelling for 8 weeks in total :slight_smile: I’m gonna be in the UK (England & Scotland) for just under 2 weeks, then do the tour, then fly back into Germany to stay with a girl I have been writing to since we were 15 and making our way down to Munich, then cating a train from Munich to Verona and staying with another friend in Italy that I have also been writing to, making our way back down to Rome where I will fly out :)[br][br]I am so excited!!! I have written this in another post, but i thought I might pop it in here as well, When we are in Rome on the tour I plan to separate from the tour in Rome and make my way down to Pompeii for the day :slight_smile: I have always wanted to see Pompeii :)[br][br]What is everyone else’s plans??[br][br]Leeana[br]Canberra, Australia[br]Spirit of Europe 16 Sept 08[br]+ London Stopover[br]+ Edinburgh Minibreak

Ah nice 1. Already on the facebook group… is anyone staying at the Globetrotters the night before? Reckon i will… makes it easy to leave in the morning. Thinking of staying there for 2 nights and having a day and night out in London before we set off. Anyone interested? I’ve never been to London so i’m keen to see it before we go!


#15

I’ll be at Globetrotters :)[br][br]We were talking about having a couple of drinks the night before in the bar at the hostel on Facebook :)[br][br]I can’t wait to get there :)[br][br]Leeana[br]Canberra, Australia[br]Spirit of Europe 16 Sept 08[br]+ London Stopover[br]+ Edinburgh Minibreak

Ok now i’m really starting to get excited!! 19 days until i fly out! I like all this talk of a get to know ya drink the night before! I’ll definately be up for that! [br]I can’t believe it’s so close now! I’ll be in London for a few days staying with a friends friend but if anyone want’s to meet up before the night before we all go that’d be cool! I want to explore some of London and it’d be cool if i had someone to chat with along the way!


#17
