    Hey everyone, I also saw the appeal of a New Years in Amsterdam. I’m 22, from Sydney and flying solo – best way to do what you want and to meet new people. Did a similar thing over in the US a couple of years ago and had the best time. Been planning on going to Europe for a long time, so glad that I am finally making the effort. Doing Dubai on the way over and also spending some time in Newcastle and then London before hand.

    Only doing a couple of nights in Dubai – the 24th of November until the 27th. Are you doing Dubai before hand also? Yeah it looks like its going be be a great 24 days on tour :D!

    Hey everyone,
    I have also booked this tour, travelling with a mate. we are both 22 from newcastle NSW.

  • 10 Aug 2011 Howie said


    To all those Sydney based or travelling through before we fly out, we should hit up one of the local beer halls for a few (or more likely many) beverages some time in the next couple of months. Any excuse for a night out will do :D…

    Hey Howie,

    Christmas in Vienna, NYE in Amsterdam – should be wonderful.

  • 16 Aug 2011 Miche_D said


    hey ben! where abouts from melbourne are you? think its safe to say the reason we all booked this tour is for new years!

  • 17 Aug 2011 Ben said


    hey! i’m right in the city, how bout you?

  • 18 Aug 2011 Michael said


    hi all!
    I booked this trip today and already really lookin forward to it! I’m 24 from Melbourne. Will be travelling solo.
    My european plans consist of arriving in england a week or 2 before the tour departs and taking a look around england and scotland. possibly doing it with a tour group or maybe just working my own way round.. havent decided yet. Then I plan on using our tour to get a good idea of places I might like to go back and visit after the tour ends. I think 1 or 2 days in some of the places we are going just won’t be enough so I’m hoping to get an eye for the good spots and work my way back around.
    Anyone else have plans for after the tour?
    I’ll leave it with that at the moment but I look forward to meeting you all!
