    I tried to find the facebook group…unsuccessful. I’m not very FB inclined though. :) I found it now…no worries.

    Aloha Everyone! I’m guessing everyone in this discussion is also going on the European Magic trip from May 13-23? Sweet! My name is David and I’ll be joining the tour. I’m very excited about going and I’d like to say Hello first of all! =)

    Hi everyone! I live in Chicago, flying direct to London the night of 5/12 for this tour. Travelling solo, this will be my first time in Europe (with the exception of London, which I’ve been to several times). Wicked excited for this journey, looking forward to meeting all of you!

    hey everyone,

    I did this trip in May 2009 and had a blast!

    If I had to give one tip, it would be to do all the optional excursions- those were some of the best times.

    Also, we had a good mix on our excursion. (About 30% solo, 10% siblings, and 20% friends and 30% boyfriend/girlfriend.) But that hardly mattered as by the 4th day I knew everyones name and we were basically all friends.

    Also, a good idea is to fly to London early (or stay after) as you only have one evening there.

    have a good time everyone!

    I live in Somerville now, what about you? When are you flying over there? I’m flying out thursday the 12th.

    Somerville – lived on Cherry St, then on Somerville Ave, and then on Ashland St (behind the Kennedy Elementary School). Porter Square/Davis Square area. Flying to London the night of May 12th, should get in Friday around noon.

    Are you still in Somerville now? I live in union square. Me and a friend are getting to London early friday morning…not sure how, but whoever is going to be there early should all meet up.
