personally i really like www.getjealous.com because of the layout and features, but you dont get to upload many pictures, if you want to upload heaps of pics then you need to pay. [br][br]but for a free one that will let u upload unlimited pics i like www.travelblog.org it doesnt look as nice, but its still really good :)[br][br]hope that helps :)[br][br]Leeana[br]Canberra, Australia[br]Spirit of Europe 16 Sept 08[br]+ London Stopover[br]+ Edinburgh Minibreak

Whirlsie…seriously your gonna be over your luggage weight limit with just your puzzles books and sudoku…all you need is a feather and annoying voice, its all the entainment you need lol


#15

yep all booked im flying emirates, so will hopefully have a good flight, it was cheaper than a lot of other flights b/c of early bird special, so im excited!![br]yeah ill take a book, maybe just one biggish one to last the whole trip, im not gonna have enough room as it is!![br]maybe to save luggage you should get the electronic puzzle games, save space and heaps on them, just a thought ;)i suppose they can just be hand luggage though ;)[br]are you doing any backpacking by yourself before or after your tour?


#16

#17

Wow! Emirates!! I love Emirates!! But when i got my ticket they werent that cheap… which was a shame… but then i am flying out at a different seasonality :slight_smile: [br][br]yeah i might load some gamed onto my ipod, but ill see :slight_smile: everytime i fly i take a small puzzle book with me, a reading book and some music :slight_smile: and they stay in my hand luggage :)[br][br]I am staying at the Globetrotter Inn in London for 2 days, then I’m goin up to Edinburgh for 4 days, then back to the Globetrotter Inn in London for 5 days :slight_smile: During my stay in London though I am planning on going to Stonehenge, Avebury and Bath and then a day trip with my bestie who will be living there by that stage to Disneyland Paris!! YAY!! :smiley: I can’t wait!! I am so excited!! [br][br]But after my tour, I am going to fly to Germany spend some time with my penpal there and then we will head down to Munich, and then I will fly to Italy and spend time with my other penpal there, and then head down to Pompeii before I head back :slight_smile: In total, I will be away for 7.5 weeks :o[br][br]Leeana[br]Canberra, Australia[br]Spirit of Europe 16 Sept 08[br]+ London Stopover[br]+ Edinburgh Minibreak
