    Hey guys and chicks,

    My boyfried and I are booked in for this tour date. We are from Melbourne but have been travelling and living in London for the past 8 months.

    I noticed a few of you are interested in working in the UK after the tour so if you need any info feel free to ask.

    Looking forward to the 24th of April.

    hey guys!

    yep, i’m definitely still in, travelling at the moment so don’t get much of an opportunity to get on the net. excellent to see more and more ppl for the tour. i’m startin to get pretty pumped up for it, and have to say its reassuring to be able to get in touch with you all, as the whole travelling by myself thing was a tad intimidating. sounds like everyone is probably going to be at contiki basement the night before, so that should be a good way to a have a pre-tour, get-to-know-u, small shindig. haha.

    happy travels

    Hey, what’s up everyone?

    It’s nice to meet you all! I guess I’m part of the ‘Brucy plus 6 friends’ group of people..? But anyways, I’m Adam, 22 from Toronto, Canada. I (also) am very pumped about this trip… looks like a great time. But mostly I’m just excited to get away from the snow… We’re getting 40cms of it today… yeaaa. haha I believe our entire group will be getting into the Royal National Hotel on the 23rd, so just keep an eye out for us Canadians eh? fb me if you want at ‘adam.l.bennett(at)’. I look forward to meeting everyone.

    I’m Allirra from Melb Australia and will be travelling alone. A little nervous about it but still pretty excited. I plan to stay on after the tour and live/work in either London or Dublin. I’ve had a few dramas with the trip over the past few weeks so it will be a relief to finally arrive in London.
    See you soon
    : )

  • 28 Mar 2008 Sarah225 said


    hey allira!

    Hey everyone.

    I’m not sure if i’m in the right group. my inteneray has aprill 22 but the tour doesnt actually start until april 24th so i’m guessing this is the right place.

    I’m Kristen i’m 22 and i’ll be traveling solo.

    btw, has anyone made a facebook group for our tour yet?

  • 1 Apr 2008 Brucy said


    Its getting closer and closer, can’t wait to get this thing started!

    Hope everyone is doing well and finishing up whatever they need to prior to leaving
