My friend i will be on this trip. Looking forward to it. Just need to book it now
Cool, where are you guys from? Have you booked it yet? Can’t wait
Me and 2 friends are booked on this tour, we are so excited.
We are from Melboure. Yes we have finally booked. We are going to spend 4 nights in London before the tour and the another night after before our flight back home. Can you belive we only have 28 weeks to go???
We cant wait.
I do have some tips. (Just from firends that have done the tour).
1/ They are very strict with the weight of your bag. 20KG
2/ They dont include your sleeping bag as weight so you might be able to stash some things in there.
3/ Take the tunnel to the hotel. Everyone says its easy.
4/ Apparently ther is a duty free shop of the boat that takes us across the channel. Apparently we can by the grog there and take it with us. Just not to sure.
All the best in saving your pounds / euro.
Ahh ok, thanks for the tips! can’t wait to meet u gus in person.. just over 6 months to go <!--graemlin::cool:-->
