Spirit of Europe 5th April 2011


#1

Just wondering if anyone else has booked this tour yet??

I’m travelling solo and would love to meet some people also doing this tour! ;D


#2

Hey Casey,
I’m doing the Grand European which also departs April 5th. I’m travelling solo aswell.
I will be arriving in London on April 3 and hope to get a bit of sight seeing in before the tour, although after 20 hours on a plane, I will probaly be to tired on the day I arrive, but definitely plan on doing as much as I can on the 4th.
You’re more than welcome to join me if you want or we could get together for a drink or something. Let me know if you’re keen :slight_smile:


#3

Hey Matt.
I’m getting in the 3rd as well…who are you flying with?
I wanna try and do as much sight seeing as I can on the 4th as I don’t know when I will ever get back to London! But meeting up for a drink sounds good!


#4

I’m flying with Emirates.

Yeah I wish I had more time in London , there’s so many things I would like to visit.
I probaly won’t get the chance to get back to London for a while either, this trip alone has almost maxed out the entire contents of my savings account


#5

I’m flying with Emirates too. Get in to Heathrow at about lunch time on Sunday.

This trip is costing me a fortune! But I know it will be worth it!


#6

I think we may even be on the same flight, I’m supposed to get into Heathrow at 12:15pm.
Are you stopping over in Dubai?

Yeah it will definitely be worth it, we’ll have to compare stories of both tours :slight_smile:


#7

Strange…I stop over in Dubai and get in at Heathrow at 12:15pm too! Syd-Dubai-Heathrow.


#8

That’s awesome!! I’m going Brisbane-Dubai-heathrow. Wow small world :slight_smile:


#9

Well perhaps there is the possibility we will meet in Dubai then!


#10

I think there is a pretty strong possibility. I would suggest we book our seats together, but I just picked mine the other day and don’t know if I can change them. I managed to get the best type of seat there is for that particuliar flight, an exit row ;D


#11

I haven’t booked my seats yet, only finalized paying my flights today. But let me know what seat you have booked and I will contact my travel agent. It will be good to seat next to someone also travelling Europe!


#12

I’m in 45G. I just checked the seating map, even if I change, there’s still heaps of available seats together :slight_smile:

9 weeks is such a long time, wish it would hurry up. Have you booked your accomodation yet?


#13

I will have a look tonight at the seating available.

9 weeks is going to take forever! I’m actually staying at a mates the Sunday night, and possibly the Monday too.


#14

You’re so lucky to have mates over there, I’m so jealous.
I just booked a basic room in a B&B (didn’t like the sound of that clink place cos of all the bad reviews), but at least where I booked is right near the train station and only a few minutes walk to where the tour departs. I don’t know if we’ll be on the same tour bus or not, your tour starts the same as mine


#15

Yeah, it’s pretty lucky. His only been there a few months.
Lucky your near where the tour departs! I have no idea where it departs - only decided to go overseas about a week ago!
I think we have the same first stop, Paris for two nights. Don’t know if it will be the same bus though


#16

Yeah I’ve been downloadin maps like crazy to try and find my way around, although I’ll probaly still end up lost.
I only just decided to go overseas aswell


#17

Was kind of a spur of the moment decision, when I was walking past a travel agents, I kinda got the urge to book a trip to Europe :slight_smile:


#18

Mine wasn’t that spur of the moment. I had a pretty crap yr last year and thought I would do something fun and adventurous!
Well getting lost is half the fun! Makes it more of a journey!


#19

Oh my God! Thats the exact reason I booked! Ah well, may 2011 be a heaps better year. Yeah I suppose getting lost is part of the fun


#20

Well, I’m sure Europe will make a great start to 2011!
