    Hey Melanie,
    Still deciding if I should stay at the Royal National or somewhere else such as the Cavendish.

    Hey Brian,
    I’ll be staying at the Generator Hostel, which is apparently right near the start of the tour.

    I haven’t heard of that hotel. Do they offer a better rate than the Royal National?

    I believe so, its a hostel. It looks pretty cool, plus you get some free tours included. Check out this website http://www.generatorhostels.com/london/

    Hi Melanie,
    My partner Michael and I will be on the same tour. We are staying at the Royal National. Is it a dodgy hotel? We are actually doing the 33 day European Explorer followed by 2 days off then onto the UK/Ireland tour. Should be a really full on few months but I am so excited and cant wait! First time overseas for both of us. Hope to hear from you. Carla Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->

    Hi Carla Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> Nice to meet you here. Wow your going to have a great few months esp since your travelling for the first time! I’m doing Egypt and the Nile, European Experience and then this one, so I can’t wait! Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> Travelling for 2 months Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> Where abouts are you and your partner coming from? As for the Royal National Hotel, I’ve got no idea what it is like. I’m going to be at the Generator Hostel which I believe is actually near the Royal National.

    Hey Melanie,
    Great to hear from you. We are coming all the way from Alice Springs, Australia so very far. We arrive on the 11th of April and do the European Explorer for 33 days then 2 days off in London then start the UK/S Ireland tour then 2 days again in London then off to Paris for 7 days and then a couple of nights in Singapore on the way home. I know its a little premature but I am really getting worried about packing. How can we be expected to pack lightly when we are away for such a long time? I am really going to struggle to stay under 20kg but I guess I will have to find a way. Hope to hear from you again. Carla Wink<!--graemlin:;)--> Go the Smileys

    Melanie

    Thats quite an intinery! Well Carla we are practically neighbours! I’m from Brisbane. Regards the packing, I’m still not sure yet either. I’m sure that I will leave it till the last minute to pack anyway haha. Makes it harder too having such varying temperatures like Egypt to London. lol. Talk again soon! Mel Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Hey Pete,
    Welcome!!! Sounds like we have a few aussies on tour. Should be awesome fun and not long to go now. Michael and I both have our Birthdays in Ireland as well 27th May (Mike) and 28th of May for me. We are both turning 26. So sounds like we will have a fair bit of celebrating going on and Ireland should be the place to be with all the pubs – Can’t wait. Carla Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->
