    Hey Guys! I have booked this tour for the 7th of July. Good to know that there is already someone else on the bus with me. I am so excited. It’s the first time I have done anything like this on my own. Bring it on!

    Wink<!--graemlin:;)--> yip, Im there. Im going solo 2, to be honest, have no desire to travel with anyone I know, its part of the experience to get out there and meet people in some of the most amazing places in the world and live it up…

    How exciting.

    hey Drummond, would love any imput you can give about the tour!! i am a bit worried about the weather coz i know 06 was a heat wave wasnt it? Trying to decide if it will be way too hot for a sleeping bag esp in the cabins!

  • 27 Nov 2006 *nikki_adelaide* said


    hey Drummond…thanks. Do you think i’d need to take a sleeping bag, i just have a sleeping sheet (sleeping bag insert) i thought i could take…its silk.
    Did the cabins and hotels/hostels have aircon?
    Around what temp did it get down to at night roughly.

    hey all what are you travel plans before/after the tour?

    Anyoone planning on going to the Moulin Rouge rather than the optional Nouvell Eve show? I hear you need to book a good month or two in advance to get a seat. Ive gotta get on that soon.

    Time is flying – this time is 6 months we’ll be in like the chateau Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Hi Nikki,

    I just booked yesterday for the 27th of june tour… im so excited i got the last female spot cos someone cancelled!! soo lucky!

    I live in Perth now and am 22, but grew up in adelaide… its good to see another adelaide girl going!!

    Im travelling alone, but think it is the best way to meet lots of great new people.

    Is everyone staying at the royal national a couple of nights before??

    Can’t wait to meet you all…

    Em xx

    Sally – i am flying emirates, it goes via dubai. I took this flight cos it gets to london at midday (i get there on Monday 25th) and then i can go straight to the royal national and check in at two… and probably sleep!

  • 11 Jan 2007 Sally:) said


    HI everyone

    I leave Sat 23rd arrive in london 3.30pm Sunday. I will stay with my cousin the first 2 days then check-in @ the royal national on that tuesday 25th so i will probably see you there Em C!!!

    I stop over in Singapore which i am looking forward to because i heard great things about the airport there Wink<!--graemlin:;)-->

    I am going solo!!!

    cant believe the tour is already booked?? I thought i was a bit over keen booking in November (i wanted all the early bird discounts) but now i see that was a good choice!!!

  • 11 Jan 2007 *nikki_adelaide* said


    Hey, im travelling with my friend hayley.
    Were staying at the Royal National from 22nd-26th so will def see you girls there!!

    hey em…where in Adelaide were you from? your so lucky to get the spot! im so glad i booked in Nov too Sally, it was fully booked at the end of Dec already!!!

    A little over 5 months to go Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->

    Just paid off $5485 on the tour and flights to get the special deal thingos with the money back so its great to get a major chunk of it out the way!
