Hi!

I am wondering if anyone else is doing this tour? I am sure there is at least a few people going because it is a confirmed departure! It would be nice to know who is going before the trip starts!

    Hi again, my friend and i have started looking at places to go for nye and we are going to buy tickets to Opal Bar in London it’s near the Thame river and hopefully we can see the fireworks from there. its only 20 pounds for the tickets and we’re not sure what that gets us probably just entry to the club. don’t know if it’ll be any good but we don’t want to be outside on the night. see you all soon

    Do you know if you can use euro in London? And do you have to buy the tickets for Opal Bar in advance? Or can you get them at the door as well?

    I think that looks like a cool place and it’s in a good spot to see fireworks(which I really want to see!).
    :D
    This trip is coming up so fast! I’m excited.

    That place does look nice! I wouldn’t mind going there. When are you guys arriving in london?

    I’m not sure if they take euro in london, they might have money exchange places though that you might be able to change your currency. If you book it online it’s only 20 pounds. it does say that you can buy at the door for 25 pounds. We are buying them just in case they fill up by the time we get over there.

    we fly in on 27th at 6.30 at night and have a few days before the tour. we are coming from sydney.

    we fly in at 9:00am on the 29th and have the whole day before we meet up with the tour.

    Thats cool. I fly in on the 28th around noon. So I have about a say and a half before the tour starts. Are you guys staying in the imperial or royal national before the tour starts?
