    I am flying home from France on the same night the tour ends…..I am glad to have found another Aussie doing the same trip. I am excited but as it gets closer and am a little nervous about getting there on my own. I’ve only been overseas once before….who are you flying with I am flying with Emirates with a stopover in Dubai…..I feel like a child counting down the days :-)))))

    Ok.im quite nervous but very excited too. Ive been planning this trip for a long time.not too sure what to pack… Well i will transit in Mauritius for a few nights then head to uk. I wil do the same thing after the tour. Are you getting airport transfer from london airport or just catching the train? Maybe i should give you my email and get to know each other. If you want to of course.

    I have been undecided about whether or not to catch the train or get transfer….so far I havent booked a transfer but if at the last minute I am too nervous I will book it…..my travel agent is awesome and said she could organise the transfer at the last minute if needed…My email is tristelleg78@gmail.com ( my name is Tristelle) and would love to chat through email….like I said I am heaps happy to have met another Aussie especially one who is travelling on their own like me….and yeah I have no idea what to pack!!!!

    Hi guys
    I just checked in and found all this stuff. I’m also travelling on my own and from Syd, Australia. I’ll be at the royal national on the night before the trip, but i’ll be in london for 4 nights before hand though. I’m kinda nervous about going over there on my own so good to know there’ll be other single travellers. I’m flying to Scotland at the end of the tour from Paris ( going to meet my newborn nephew, so exicted about that too). Looking forward to meeting you all
