Simon I never thought of sickness! If any of you get sick take one for the team and walk instead of getting on the bus? Deal!
Nickkkk where bouts you from? Hope you’re livers up to scratch!
How do we organise predrinks? Keep posted to this convo or make a facie group and put shit on there?
Dont we have a meeting the night before ? So we can just meet there yeah and then head out after? :)
Yes we do have a meeting the night before. It states that somewhere in the itinerary and that it’s compulsory.
Welcome nick. Hmmm yes I agree, we shall tie sick people to the top of the bus.lol. There are sick people everywhere at the moment!!! I’m dodging coughs and sneezes like a ninja
Exam tomorrow morning and then fly out Tuesday :)
I’ve got my iPhone. Hoping my travel sim comes by tomorrow otherwise I’ll have to get a sim over there. I just want to watch How I met your mother :D
yeah Pre-drinks sounds like a good idea.
I am just taking a vitamin tablet very day, so I am hoping that it will do the job.
I am using a UK vodafone sim, the rates over here are alright, It is like 23p per message (international).
hey guy’s, starting the big trip to England tonight!!!!! Can’t wait for pre drinks with everyone, i’ll see you’s over there!

Hey simon today i got a travel sim from the post office, the rates are pretty good, maybe you could get one of those? :)

has anybody been watching the weather over in Europe atm? its raining and like 18C…
Anybody else flying Thai Airways with a cheeky stop over in Bangkok??
So jealous of the lot that flew out today, don’t get to rowdy before reinforcements arrive!
Cheers Jaime ill defo check it out :)! Dam ash clouds are over NZ again tho… heres hoping I get away in time! Its raining over there now, so it can be nice for 32 days i heard :).. Seems like half the crew on here went today, hope you all travel safe and have no hassles! see you all sooon
Simon, I don’t think there’s anywhere in NZ for us to get travel sims like them lucky aussies :p but a friend of mine was over in the UK earlier in the year and has recommended I get a Lebara brand sim, it’s really cheap to text home like 10p and from 1p for calls I think!! That’s what i’m planning on going with.
hey guys i know this may sound like a silly question, but are yous bring a pillow? i’m packing at the moment, ahhh i have no idea what to take!
No silly questions! (I had the same one haha) I’m just going to buy a cheap one in London and ditch it after the tour :)
ohhh that is such a good idea!
Yeah Jaime I had that question too, and I asked some people who had done a few tours before and they think that you just grab them from various hostels or whatever, Save the Space in your bag! And James the weather is that shit over here at the moment. Everyday I go out in long pants and a Hoodie. But that’s just London all the time. Everywhere Else seems to have nice weather!!!
oi just flew in, sneaky stops in hong kong but james!
im grabbing a sleeping bag and pillow over here so i saved space.
just spent what could only be described as a weeks worth of pay on duty free alcohol muhahahaha
reinforcements need to to get here stat – 6 days!
