Hi everyone,

I'm starting to get excited about the tour as I have all my winter clothes now! When is everyone arriving? I'm there a week earlier and will be having a look at London and possibly Ireland before the tour. I also have a few weeks after the tour.

    Hi Candy,
    Nice to meet someone from the same tour! I’m arriving in London the day before the tour and am bracing myself for an extremely jet lagged first leg of the trip. I’m working in London after for a few months. Soo excited!

    Nice to meet you too:) Yes, you probably will be on struggle street for the first few days of the tour!

    I’m going on this one too :) There’s another discussion about it somewhere on the forums but it’s pretty dead. I’m arriving in London on the 26th of Jan and am planning on squeezing in all the sights of London and also Stonehenge and Bath before the tour starts :)

    It was such a mission trying to find winter clothes in the middle of Summer but I think that I have enough to survive (and am probably very close to the 20kg limit!). I’ll be living in Milan, Italy for a few months after the tour though so am really struggling with what I should pack as I’ll need spring/summer stuff too… looks like I’ll just have to buy myself a new wardrobe and ship it back home again (which looking at all the rates online will cost me a small fortune!)

    I’m so excited though! :D

    Hi Kristen I get into Paris on the 26 of January too. Plan is to stay there for a few days and train it to London before the tour. I’m from Queensland so I completely understand how hard it is to find winter clothes, but I ended up finding some good deals at Snowbiz.

    That’s exciting you will be living in Milan for a few months, I’m looking at staying in Spain for a few weeks after the tour should be warmer by March.

    Sounds good! Do you want to see Ireland? I think you just catch a ferry over there. This is my first time in Europe too. I’m not sure where I’m staying in London yet, still in the process of booking accommodation.
