European Vista 2nd January 2012

28 Jul 2011 Stu asked


Just seeing who may be going on the Vista tour leaving the 2nd of January.
I'll be traveling solo and will be my first time overseas so would be great to get to know some people before departing :)

    That’s the one, a while to go yet but still really excited about it.
    Where are you guys from?

    Both from Australia, QLD. It’s not too far away, 149 days and counting.

    I’m from VIC. Will be spending New Years in London too so it will be an awesome start to the year with that and the tour

    No shortage of Aussies on this tour, haha.
    Edinburgh seems like the place to be Wilhouse, friends have convinced me to make the effort to get there for New Years.
    Anyone staying at the Royal national the night before we leave?

  • 20 Oct 2011 Tracey said


    Adrian (my flat mate) and I will be staying at the Royal National a few nights before the tour and we are doing the 5 day Lindon explorer after the European Vista.

    Hey everyone! I’m Sarah and my cousin Laura and I are from VIC. We’re also spending New Year’s Eve in London, seeing a matinee of Les Miserables during the day but unsure still what to do at night. Anyone else going to at the Royal National that night?

    Not long to go now, can’t wait.
    Anyone got some good tips or essentials to take on tour?

    Hi Guys, I’m Michael and I am from WA. I will be in Edinburgh for NYE, can’t wait.
    Apparently it is suppose to be their worst winter this year so might be wise to get a bus ticket back just in case planes and trains are snowed in.

  • 8 Dec 2011 Tori said


    Really? The worst winter… now I’m worried about warm clothes… haha

  • 8 Dec 2011 Tracey said


    From what little research I have done it looks like England’s weather is going to be in their average zone with a few mild patches for December and early January. It’s looking more likely that the weather will turn colder towards mid to late January and will be at its worst in February with below average temperatures. For some places we are going to in Europe however, their average temp it between -5 to -1 for January. I’d look at packing for -7 to 10 degrees. I would say thermals is a MUST since most of us will be coming from temperatures in the 30’s, and heavy jackets.
