    whoop whoop i got my tickets thru and name of the hotel! its come round so quick!

    I am not to enthusiastic with our hotel location (near the airport) BUT I dont think we will spend much time there so it wont probably matter. We can share CABS back if we need to and split the costs…. ALso, I found this story regarding the new laws.. Apparently we are good to go cause they wont come into effect in Amsterdam until 2013!! Wooo!

    I saw that as well, big bummer that the hotel is not in the city, as they’d have you believe…oh well, hopefully it is cheap to go in and out..

    Hey all! My partner and I are staying at the New England Hotel in Victoria, its about a 20 min drive from where we’re meeting? Is anybody else in that area or close by? Cause we arrive at 5am on the 29th (EEW! lol) so have a few days before we leave and would be keen to catch up and explore :D

    Hi all, also thinking of joining this trip, will meet at Amsterdam though on the morning of the 30th. Does anyone know if there are still vacancies? 25 M Melbourne (Aus). Will anyone else check in at the hostel before the tour arrives??

    Hi David! I think there are some spots left, on the page it says that there is still room, but you might want to call them and see! Does anyone know if we will be given transportation to and from the club on new years?

    Hi everyone – all booked and very excited about this trip !! @Explorer1203049 regardless if they do or don’t we can all split cabs to make it cheaper. Pretty sure they will do something though. Also is anyone staying the night before in the Imperial Hotel in London ?

  • 12 Dec 2011 Explorer1203049 said


    Hi @Explorer1330891! Good idea! My sister and I will be in London the night of the 28th and 29th, we are going to Stonehenge on the 29th all day! Maybe we can catch up with you for dinner or something!

  • 13 Dec 2011 David_Melbourne said


    Anyone starting off in Amsterdam, and staying at the same hotel before hand? I will be there before if anyone is interested in meeting up.

  • 13 Dec 2011 AbeL said


    I arrive to London from LA @11am on the 29th, so whomever wants to get together late afternoon for some early pub crawling, let me know! I’ve had a rough time at work recently with our secretary dying Saturday of cancer and my boss TODAY having a kidney transplant from his wife no less, so my nerves are wearing thin. I need these few days to just forget about reality.. I am booked at the Imperial for the 29th and am ready to rock.. I am staying in Amsterdam one extra day as well; I booked the night of Jan 2 at the Bull Dog hostel and fly back to California Jan 3; in case anyone else is staying xtra in Amsterdam it would be good to have someone to chill with…

    i’ll be traveling up to london on the day we depart 30th, really looking forward to meeting everyone

  • 14 Dec 2011 David_Melbourne said


    Explorer1330297, I'll either be there the night before or the morning of the 30th (traveling solo). Send me an email/ facebook to if you are keen to meet up before the tour.
