    I’m 21 from New Zealand and arrive in London on the 4th. I’m doing the london to Rome contiki but it is the same one as london to athens – just get off early.

    A friend of mine from england said that Westlife are playing in Surrey on the 5th so if anyone is keen for a hilarious night let me know!!

    Oh really.. small world

    yeh for sure, we have a friend who has promised to show us around too, we’ll have to try not to sleep on the first day and beat jet lag lol might be a challange

    haha of course we’ll be nice, were there to meet people and were both very friendly, it’ll be great, we also want to go to the Australian Pub, sounds weird heading to an Aussie pub overseas but its meant to be really good.

    I wish we coudl come to westlfife but we don’t arrive til the 8th, would have been a very funny night

    Are you guys staying at the royal national the nights before the tour??

    Yeah i’ll be staying at the royal national hotel the 8th and 9th august..ive booked the hop on hop off tour for the 9th august if u guys were interested…

    We will have to cross reference what to pack i went to thailand for 2 weeks and packed just under 20 kg so god knows how much i’ll pack for 3 week tour lol…

    so looking forward to it!!!

    OK anyone on this trip I can add?? I am so excited!! holy cow. I made a choice of bringing a roll bag instead of back pack.. that is one step out of many!! YAHH!

  • 1 Jul 2010 StephK said


    yep accepted… i might make a page for our group so everyone can see everyone kinda thing i’ll do it tonight..
    whats a roll bag lol, we probably have different names for things, i’m not taking a backpack either just a huge handbag and a beach bag for beach days or the overnight ferry, i hate backpacks they annoy me lol..
    I know what u mean about decisions though i feel like there are a million little things i need to do/buy in the next 5 weeks
