    Hey everyone! I’m 23/m/NZ. Cool to hear there’s another kiwi on the trip Crispy! Happy to meet you all as you all sound like very friendly people Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> Ben.

    Whats going on Ben glad to hear another male coming on besides myself and John, I might’ve had to put up with Tori more. (Jk canadian cowcake)

    I am so glad everyone here is traveling single makes me feel loads better.

    Also for all of you who didnt know I am determined to make this the best trip EVER.

    I am gonna be a dork right now (Tori ya know what I am talking about)and introduce myself to yall before we meet so there is no surprises or looks of disgust

    I am 23, male, single and like long walks on the beach bla blah blah…
    I am transitioning careers right now from finance to teaching and am loving the choice so far because it means I will have my summers back. I tend to be on the loud/dorky/party/funny guy side of things and my mouth is now the shape of my foot as a result.

    I am looking forward to seeing Italy the most as I am in love with Italian food and their cities. Oh and also Amsterdam because well for obvious reasons…

    not sure what to say next so I will wait and hope you all get this for MSN

    I’ll be in London for a week after the tour ends Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

  • 7 Feb 2008 Benjos said


    hey people! you fellaz are funny!

    ya crispy i’m just down the road from you in Hamiltron. i’ll try not to hold it against you that you a Dorklander. hehe. yeah good luck explaining what a jaffa is!

    do we know how many people are going to be on this tour? i’m most looking forward to Italy (i’m half italian!) and am currently taking italian lessons! but really keen to see the sights of europe. man 10 countries in 20 days is going to be intense!!

    i’m in London for a week before the tour starts, and a couple of days after before heading home.

  • 8 Feb 2008 Crispy said


    Ohhh Benjos, you are now in big trouble. You will keep until we get on holiday!! So you live with the Waik a moo cows – yes dont worry all our overseas friends we will explain!!

    Italy is one of the few places in the world I have always wanted to see… along with about 50 ohters – think I might need to finish this one first..

    I’m in London from the 7th got a few things to do before and leaving on 20th May and doing 3 tours.. Wow… very full on..

  • 8 Feb 2008 Benjos said


    Yeah yeah Crispy I’m real scared Razzer<!--graemlin::p-->
    Waik-a-moo-cows! That’s a new one! Poor moo cows are in the middle of a drought here. Not too good! What do you do for a job Crispy?

    Sheesh 3 tours! That’s eXtreme!!! We’ll have to meet up before our tour when I’m in London from 13 April.
