    Just booked this tour! James, 19(turn 20 in Prague!) also from Melbourne. Eastern suburbs.
    Travelling alone as well, bit intimidating but you only get a few opportunities for a trip like this.
    Cant wait! Bring on Oktoberfest and Amsterdam Wink<!--graemlin:;)-->

    Hey Hey!!!I’m Teagan I’m all booked for this tour too!!!!
    And it is good to see that it is now a definate departure cos when i booked it wasn’t!

    I’m from Sydney and my bf alex is travelling with me too.
    There are i think two others i know of who are on this same tour as i set up a forum to. One is also travelling with the partner and the other is a solo! from VIC and SA.

    What are your plans for prior to the tour? How early is everyone heading over to London?

    Well im mega excited for this trip and the count down has begun….. 139 days to goo!!!

    Im going via Paris for Rock En Seine.
    Its a music festival in the last week of august in paris with huge names and its really cheap!

    Im staying 2 nights before the tour in London, and will spend the time in between with relatives.

    Cant wait!! Better start saving…

    Does anyone know if we(australian passport holders) need a visa for the countries visited on the tour?
