    Ps apparantely weather around europe in September is pretty similar to the weather at the moment in Melbourne if you use that as a guide.

    Thanks Simon- yeah fam pretty shaken up (excuse the pun!) and prettymuch all my mates have given up hanging around and left as they’re so over the constant tremors. I reckon ill stay at the contiki village the night before we start but yeah let me know if there’s somewhere cheaper and close by to where we start so dont have to venture around at some insane hour in the morning before we start. Barney sounds fun -keep us posted!

    Big call Leish Big Call!! Us kiwis im sure will give you guys a run for your money :p!! Hmmm hearing mixed messages tee-people are saying it’ll be really warm and then others are saying more spring/autumn like weather whilst we’re over there…not brissy styles heat but not tassie’s winter….mixture of clothing i think is your safest bet!!
