    Hey guys,

    I’m looking at doing the UE (Egypt)on 24th Aug, and going solo. This will be my 1st time to Europe. Is there anyone else doing this tour? I’m a female from inner west Sydney. Like to meet anyone who is interested in this tour.

    Hi all,
    I’m planning on doing the ultimate european in late august (just in time for the sunny weather in europe!) Looks like I won’t be the only one going alone, nor the only Australian (I’m from Perth). I’ll be doing the Egypt option – So excited!
    I’d like to meet anyone who’s going in late august. Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Hey Laino, and everyone else,

    I’ve booked and paid for this trip departing 24th Aug 2008 too. I’m 21 from Brisbane as well and I’m going solo, for my first time leaving Queensland, I’m doing the Greek option. We should all try to meet up here before we leave, or in London and hang out before the tour starts.
    Take it easy, hope you’re all having good weekends.
