    Excellent, good to know I’m not alone on the whole morning thing. I am great with the staying up all night but when it comes to waking up early is just not a skill I have acquired.

    Frowner<!--graemlin::(--> about not getting to meet up with your friend but Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> cause I will have someone to see the sights with!!!

    im exactly the same, great with staying up late.. terrible at getting up early. i think the fact that we will be in awesome countries might be enough to force us out of bed though :P

    yeh it will def be good to have someone else to see things with in london!

    i hate that its so far away, but its good that i have plenty of time to save too. does anyone know how much spending money they will probably take?

    I’ve been reading reccomendations from others and they say anywhere betwenn 100 – 150 euros a day but it all depends on how crazy you want to go with shopping as well as the optional extras and anything else.

    yeh ive read that too, i think ill just save as much as i can so i dont have to worry about money.

    Thats what I’m doing to… Do you have any extra’s in mind that you don’t think u wanna miss out on?

    i think ill probably do most of the optionals. might give a few a miss im not sure though. one i definitely want to do is the gondola ride oh and georges boat ive heard thats really good.
    and ive read that you should definitely do the first dinner cos its a good opportunity to get to know everyone. im not sure about the nouvelle eve yet cos its so expensive might depend how much i save. but like i said ill probably do most.

    what about you?

    I want to do them as well!! I had a friend who was a dancer at the Moulin Rouge and that is way out of my budget so I am thinking about the Nouvelle Eve. I am definatley wanting to do Pompeii though.

    im not sure yet i havent booked (ive been trying not to get distracted whilst my exams are on) so ill prob book on saturday but i think ill probably go with qantas or thai airways cos i want to stop in bangkok for a few days and i dont want to have other stop overs as well and most other airlines stop in other places.

    yes lol start with umm oh gosh i forget what they’re called … i think they’re called fusions and they’re in a green bottle? THey have a hint of lime lol SO much easier to drink!! wine, i can manage white wines, start with like zibibo and moscato and then by the time you get to something that is grosser you’ll have taken the edge off :P
