Hey Carlah, Wintergirl,[br]Yea I read that post was helpful, I am taking a sleeping bag as we are over there in winter and i was looking at some of the temps for Germany and Amsterdam and they were cold i mean really cold. I picked up a back pack and sleeping bag and a space saver towel I’m gonna be traveling pretty light to begin with as well I’m a keen shopper so … don’t wanna have to limit myself too much hehe. One of my mates is going to London to live so ill get him to come show me round a bit that night as well.[br][br][br]-Winter Getaway 27th November.[br][br]So Damn Excited!!!

Hey guys, I am on booked on this tour as well, and will be at Globetrotters the night before. Really looking forward to meeting you all! [br][br]I still have to get a sleeping bag, I want a really small one, so I’m thinking of getting one of the Roman Palm series - I just don’t know what warmth rating to get, considering we’ll just be using them inside. [br][br]So where is everyone from? I live in Brisbane. [br][br]Nina[br][br]Winter Getaway - 27th November - 14th December 2008

Globetrotter have a happy hour in the bar downstairs from 5 to 7pm so I’ll be there starting from then.[br][br]I’ve already stayed been there for a few days last week and it’s not a bad place. It seemed clean and cosy kinda place and I didn’t have any issues, it’s not too far from the tube and tesco’s as well.[br][br]

Well to find me, just look for the shortest person in the place - I’m only 5"2…[br]I’m still doing uni exams, so I’ve been trying to concentrate on those, but it’s so hard when all I want to do is plan my trip![br][br]Winter Getaway - 27th November - 14th December 2008

Hello there guys, I am on this tour too, and will be staying at Globetrotters the night before, so guess I will see you in the bar. [br][br]I wasn’t too sure about the sleeping bag issue, I might just bring my summer one, just in case. [br][br]I am really excited, only a week and a bit to go… Can’t wait to meet everyone.
