    You guys seem to be the closest to the tour I’m goin’ on. I’m departing December the 5th through to Dec 14, with 2 extra nights in London. Would be exciting if we could meet.

    I’m looking at maybe signing up for this tour, or the one the week before. Have you guys met many others going on the tour?

  • 1 Sep 2009 Free_Spirit said


    Hi Diane,

    I think I’m on the tour the week before this one. (From the 5th to the 13th).

  • 3 Sep 2009 Diane said


    Are you doing your extra nights before, or after?

  • 3 Sep 2009 Free_Spirit said


    One night before (4 Dec.) and two nights after (14 + 15 Dec.). Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

  • 3 Sep 2009 Diane said


    Awesome! What all are you planning to see? I know I would need to spend at least one extra day in London, but I’m sure I’m missing some of the biggies…

  • 3 Sep 2009 Free_Spirit said


    Yeah what an experience it will be! I’m planning on seeing all the great sights of London including Westminster abbey, the Tower of London, the Tate modern, London Eye, the buildings of Parliament (including Big Ben) etcetera. Places I’d also really like to stop by are Wembley Stadium (occasionally there’s a South African feast there called an ‘okkasie’ where I could have some biltong which I would surely miss… Eeker<!--graemlin::eek:-->), parks like Hyde park and Regent’s park… fhewww! I should probably stop! I know I won’t have time to see all these places in one trip. I hear there’s also some fun pubs and clubs in Soho Cool<!--graemlin::cool:-->… LOL to tell you the truth I’ll check things out when I arrive Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->. By the way, where are you from?

  • 7 Sep 2009 Diane said


    I’m from the US. I’m trying to figure out everything I want to see, and see how fast I can do it, while still keeping my sanity =) I’m wanting to go out a bit that first night too with people from the tour, so I figure I got to be done with my sightseeing by 6pm. Phew! That will be a long day! Right now I think I’m coming in one day early, but not sure if I need more?!?!?! Eeek! Are you a big partier?

  • 7 Sep 2009 Free_Spirit said


    Hey where in the US are you from? I’m not a person that goes overboard but there’s a partier in each of us, is’nt there? hahaha Cool<!--graemlin::cool:-->. I’m generally a relaxed person, how are you like? I want to go on this trip for the culture and the extreme mark it will leave on my life. I’m in search of personal identity, know what I mean? I’ll party but not like wild… That I can do at home as well. This tour must be something else…And it’s gonna be!! We’ll have a blast Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->

  • 13 Sep 2009 Diane said


    Hmmm, what can I say. I guess I’m very relaxed, go with the flow usually, but if there’s something I want to see, I’m going off to see it! I’m with you, I can (and like) to party, but you can do that up a lot at home. I don’t want to be so hung over the next day I can’t enjoy myself. But I definitely want to check out the night life in the places we go. Tho I’ve already been to Paris and Venice I’m sure there are things I’ve missed…
