    haha don’t even get started on packing. My overnight bag is huge…let alone living out of a bag for 32 days. I don’t know how I am going to manage to fit clothes for 32 days and stay under 23kg!! lol

    What are you guys doing for contact? Are you going to get a international sim or just email?? I’m undecided…

    Also, Tania and I changed our flights today. So we are getting to London on the 22nd June. Only cost us $180 each. So happy we have more time in london now :) You guys will have to let us know when you get in, so we can catch up and get our drink on :D

    Last question :D what are you guys doing for money? Are you using a travelex card or credit card??

    Hey all.. My friend Ashley and I are on this tour, we’re both from NZ arriving on the 25th. Would be keen to meet you lot beforehand :) Feel free to add me on facebook Not long to go now!

    I plan to get a cheap as phone when I get there… then throw it away after the tour, would cost heaps to do international sims etc .. For money, unsure but the travel agent was saying something to do with travelex card or similar… like can be topped up when u need it with no international charges?? Hope that helps jess :)…

    dw Lexi, i will be backpacking it too, you can get some pretty nifty ones that have detachable day packs. is a good site to used and their in the city, Black Wolf is the best brand to look at :)
    argh i just want to be in France kicking back some cheap red wines and getting up to mischief now!

  • 25 May 2011 Tania Lee said


    Haha definately up to helping you the night before with the drinking!! Im taking a backpack, black wolf, and it has the attached day pack that can come off. I am so so so unorganised!! need to shop asap!! The black wolf bag is amazing, and the zippers are all waterproof, i was a bit concerned with suitcases about dragging them across uneven camping ground so i got the backpack. they are really comfy and fit heaps!!

    Oh red wine and mischief.. bring it on !! :)
