August vs. November?
- 3 responses so far
I’m doing October/November tours and I’ve been told by some friends who have lived in England that it’s not too cold at that time of year as it’s still coming into winter however I’m sure regardless of when you go you’re going to notice the difference between Aussie hot (especially QLD hot) and Europe/UK hot…..:P
With October/November the weather can be a bit hit and miss. But it’s unlikely to be really cold, just cold. You’ll need a jacket, but not long johns. You’ll probably also find the tour and airfare is cheaper, and the sites are less crowded.
October / November is actually a fantastic time to be in Europe. The mediterranean countries are still warm (about Brisbane’s autumn) and the crowds have gone home. July/August are also the months that the Europeans go on holidays so the crowds are shocking during this time. The later trips will also be cheaper and the food is better (autumn foods are all in season and the restaurants outdo themselves).
This year I’m going in December / January and even then as long as you have layers on you’re fine.
Don’t forget a sleeping bag though!
