    yay! i just booked it!! its getting a little more pricey than id hoped though! ohwell..

    im also staying and the royal national. but only on the 17th! my flight doesnt arrive until 5.30pm i hope its not delayed!! there are no cheap flights left unfortunately!

  • 8 Apr 2009 Mel said


    The tour is full!

  • 8 Apr 2009 flowerpot3315 said


    Hi Mel, Great to hear your on this tour! i was the same, being nervous (well i still am a bit!)
    it’s good to know its full- so they can’t change the date on us!
    We are going to try and see if all the melb people can catch up for a coffee soon- i think it should help our nerves! (great idea from Halyz)
    My flights weren’t very cheap either (and i’m trying to work as much as possible to save up some more, my budget’s not so great!)- but its going to be such a great experience!
    See you on Facebook! Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> Trish
