    Hey kel_89
    I’m going to book on the grand explorer in Jan but I was thinking of doing one a bit earlier as my birthday is in january and I’d like to be in new zealand for it. I cant wait, this is probably gonna be my last big trip before I settle down and try to act like an adult. Not quite ready

    Are you getting a commission Sophie? I’d love to come on the 2nd but can’t leave the uk before the 1st. Can’t you switch to a later one

    yeah sorry sophie cant go on the 2nd got a festival on down south for that weekend
    amymoo, i think i have been thinking of changing to an earlier tour was thinking the 14th?

    The 14th was the one I was thinking of. It’ll give me time to get the shop settled after Christmas and I’ll be there for my 29th birthday, yeah I know how am I gonna fit my Zimmer frame and support tights in my luggage? I wish I was there now for the rugby but I’m so excited about going. Im looking at flights and who can decide between a 27 hour one and a 33 hour one. Please let there be good in-flight movies
