European Experience AUGUST 2012 - Good time to go?

20 Feb 2012 crazycooper87 asked


I would like to know if this is a good time of the year to visit Europe, I am from Australia and hanging out for a first taste of Europe. If it is a good time of the year, please let me know who else is travelling in August, would love to meet some new people!!

    I hope so! I’m doing a European Experience starting August 24th. It will be my first time in Europe also.

    Do it! I’m booked for the European Experience trip leaving August 13th. The weather should be great and there should be some tourists but not overwhelming as it’s just after peak season (July).

    Awesome, I think ill book the 13th then. Will more than likely will be travelling solo as well, so will be great to meet new people!

    Hi I’m doing the August 16th European experience and totally looking forward to it. Should be a good time of year around Europe but expect London to be busy if you are thinking of spending any time there because the 2012 Olypmics start in August :)
