    hey guys i’m thinking of doing this tour as well. i’m in the same boat as you guys with uni and stuff Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> hopefully will be booking it in the next fortnight or so…

  • 27 Dec 2009 said


    Hey, its really great to see a few more people are interested in this tour!

    Ginzy89, i had concerns with uni but so far all the plans have fallen into place and everything is working out. Ive even managed to squeeze in a couple of days around london after the tour.

    Will you be travelling solo? How are your travel plans coming along? =)

  • 30 Dec 2009 Ginzy89 said


    oh awesome! my friend just came back from europe and she loved london and i was thinking of maybe going a few days early before or staying a few days after the tour to check out london. my plans aren’t going so great atm, but after new years hopefully i’ll have the money for the deposit. i’ve also got my 21st to plan which is in feb so i don’t have much time. and i’m planning on flying solo Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> what about you?

  • 1 Jan 2010 said


    yea fingers crossed this new year will bring about a very financially benefical year for the both of us. haha i must start saving for spending money! and yes i will be travelling solo and it will also be my first time overseas. so it is very exciting but im anxious at the same time as you can imagine.

    im glad to hear your friend loved london, i arrive on the 26th of june and have until after the tour to the 21st july in london. so hopefully there will be plenty of things to do and explore. btw i will be staying at the royal national hotel which appears to be a cheap and convenient option according to the information i have read, so it might be something to look into when you are looking for accomodation.

    best of luck saving! =)

  • 1 Jan 2010 Robbo98 said


    hey Ginzy89,

    its nice to hear there is another person thinking about going on our tour Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> there is 4 ppl doing the same thing now so its awesome and im getting excited about. i have about half the spending money so im happy with the way things are going.

    hey amy,

    thanks for jumping on our thread and saying hey, its great to see more people getting on the tour I look forward to meet everyone I guess we will all stay at the royal national hotel? or close by? so I’m sure we will see eachother before the tour starts. Yeah I’m with you im really excited and i cant wait.


  • 25 Jan 2010 Explorer Amy said


    yes we are staying at the royal national before and after.
    have you ever been to London? we haven’t.

  • 27 Jan 2010 said


    Hey Amy,

    Welcome! =) It looks like the fun is going to start at the royal national with all of us staying there both before and after the tour. haha

    I havent been to london but found some of the ‘things to do/see in uk’ style posts on this forum useful for planning. Also google can do wonders. How long will you be having to explore london? What dates are you arriving?
