    Lol yeah I’ll be snapping everything in sight haha… Heck yeh! will be doing as many (if not all) of the optionals as possible .. Really really looking forward to the Gondola Ride and whitewater rafing. But cant wait to do them all hahaha… I wish i had of started travelling a lot soon thats for sure..

    I dont think i will be doing another tour to this extent after this one =(… Due to family stuff, (i have kids so kinda makes it difficult for me to be able to get away). So i guess im pretty lucky to even be able to do this one… SO def gunna make the most of it thts for sure lol.. Although Id really llke to travel to Bali at some stage.. Thailand would be an awesome place to travel to =)

    Are you going to be doing any of the optionals at all? Is there anything you are REALLY looking forward to seeing or doing the most on this trip?

    Ohh I dont wanna miss anything either beccaamy. I was thinking of mayb leaving the monday aswell.

    Lol me tooooo BRING ON SEPTEMBER 2012 lol …. I have 4 kids B.J.. I thought i was guna be like the “nanna” of the group hahaha and be like the oldest (well i still probably am lol.. ill be 32 on the tour.. I know, im an oldie) but one of the other guys ive been chatting to on here is guna be 30 so is kinda good to know im not the only one around that age.. Better late than never to travel i spose lol…. I really wanna meet as many people on this trip as possible and have the best time, so im just hoping my age wont be a problem for some.

    I was actually thnking before, that if you want I can always fly out from Melbourne with you (would be a good excuse for me to spend a night or 2 with my sis before we leave lol)

I have until Thursday to change my mind do you know if it’s definately?? Oh cute they will have you runnin off your feet you definately need a holiday :)

    B.J

    Hey B.J. … Ohh yes, they definately keep me on my toes thats for sure lol.
    Umm yaaaaaay (but ohhhh no!! at the same time) lol.. I didnt realise that it wasnt a definate departure date… Im so glad i found out now. The chicky who has been orgainising my tour is away until monday, but I was thinking, how about I change my tour to yours?? At least that way we know we will definately be going (and wont be left behind) =).
    I so dont wanna miss this opportunity, so im guessing it would be the smarter thing to change to a definate departure?? than to be unsure over the comming months.. AND miss out altogether =(
    Let me know what you think =)

So i honestly dont mind comming down and flying out with you.. I think it might help pass the time by too.. Be nice to have someone to chat with whilst on the loooooong flight lol =)

    The definite departure was one of the main reasons I picked the 12 September 2012 date. There is quite a few people on here that are interested, so I was hoping it would go ahead. But now I’m not sure.

    Ok so I have booked the 6th it will go ahead cause of the Oktoberfest and its very popular that time of year so I think it will.
    I’m going to leave Melbourne on the 2nd :) and leave London on the 6th :) chel If you want you should email me your number so I can give you a call :)… dayle_buckley_1989@hotmail.com.. And we can talk properly lol.. It will be amazing to have you on my flight to London and back it will be amazing :) I hope we can :).. The flight centre was only going to save me 30$ so I’m going to book my flights thru Contiki and then we can both book at the same time if you want :) beccaamy you let us know what your doing to so we can meet with you to I’m so so eeeeekcited :)…
