Hey!![br][br]I’m so glad to see this topic up… Anyway, I’m on this Winter Getaway 02/02 as well!! I’m heaps excited :)[br]I’m from Australia but I’m living in London at the moment on a visit at my sister’s. I can’t wait for this trip![br][br]On a different note, are any of you bringing a sleeping bag? Because I have two different notes, one saying to bring one and the other saying not to?[br][br]Well I’m looking forward to meeting you all soon. [br][br]Oh and my manners. Heh. I’m Rocita, but please, call me Sita. [br][br] - Sita

Claire- I’m from Sydney and you? My number is an Irish number…[br][br]Sita- Where in Oz r u from? Great that someone else has joined us! This is going to be an awesome trip! I am so excited! I am definately bringin a sleeping bag. We are staying in quite a few hostels and I know from experience that some will only provide a sleeping sheet…which could get a little chilly in the like of the Swiss Alps! :slight_smile: Claire, myself and my partner Sean are going to be meeting for a few drinks the night before the tour at the Globetrotters…It would great of you could join us! I should be there about 9ish…do you have a mobile number in London? Mine is +353 87671033[br][br]


#9

I am from Perth myself. I wasn’t going to bring one but I might just incase do we need to bring a pillow? Where abouts in the bar are we going to meet cause I havent been there before[br][br]CDunstan


#10

[br]The bar isnt that big. I will text you when I get there. I suggest maybe at the entrance to the bar in the main reception area? Warning…I am flying with Ryan Air so I could be delayed getting in by an hour or 5…Will keep you posted!


#11

Okay that sounds great do u want me to send you a pic of me?[br][br]CDunstan


#12

Yeh that would be a good idea…you can email it to me if you like...nrthyrd@hotmail.com[br]

Hey![br][br]I’m from Adelaide. Whereabouts in the aussielands are you from nat_tee? [br]Um Clairebear… just a question. Do we know each other? Or is it pure coincidence that the Claire that I know from Perth has a last name starting with D as well? Am I on my own wavelength here? [Sorry, it’s just because I call Claire Clairebear as well!!][br][br]Thanks heaps for the invite for the drinks, but unfortunately I’ll have to pack on Thursday night because I’m leaving everything to the last minute! I have some clothes packed [I just came back from Sweden and have been too lazy to unpack] and I’ll probably call TopDeck just to check if I need a sleeping bag. [br][br]My London number is: 07942073563[br]But on the tour I’ll be switching back to my aussie number on roaming: +61422899858[br][br]Can’t wait to see you all bright and early [I’m so not a morning person] on Friday!! Just letting you know, I’ll be leaving the tour on the 15th Feb in either Prague or Munich because I have to fly home for uni. I threw a hissy fit when I found out I had to miss out on Germany and Amsterdam. :([br][br]Have fun on Thursday night!![br][br] - Sita


#14

Pfft. Nat, I’m an idiot. Just got that you’re from Sydney. Awesome :slight_smile: my brother lives in Mosman, North Sydney and I go there every 3 months to scab accomodation off him :)[br]Good luck with flying RyanAir. Lately, the flights have all been on time. It’s just that horrible, horrible line at passport control in Stansted. Where are you flying in from?


#15

Hey Sita [br][br]Where abouts in Adelade are you from. I have got a couisn in Wynvale and her name is Eirn. Do you know her by any chance? Woulnd’t that be funny if we knew each other.[br][br]CDunstan


#16

Hey Sita…its a real shame that you have to leave the tour early! Amsterdam is supposed to be awesome![br][br]Anyhoo see ya on Friday chook…


#17

Appprenlty the accodmation that we are staying looks a bit doggey according to mum. Apparntley there are big secruite issues in Amsterdam. Just thought that I would warn you. Mum recommeneds that you should get a money belt to put under your clothes.[br][br]CDunstan


#18

Yeh there are a few dodgy spots where we are going! I am definately taking a money belt! I know alot of people that have been to places like Rome and have been robbed a number of times by gypsies/gladiators…[br][br]


#19

Most of the places where we are going look okay but the sounds of it. Where did you get your money belt from just having a look on the internet now.[br][br]CDunstan
