    Hi Brett. I’m taking a light weight suitcase with wheels. That has a handle on the side and top so you can still carry it. Where abouts do u live in Brisbane? Because I live in Bracken Ridge.

    Ant I’m taking an ekit sim card from It is a pre paid sim that you can use on any international mobile. It also comes with a free Travel Journal to show where you have been.

    Hey ant I went to Telstra they had to activate international roaming for my plan service, and said to turn off data on my iPhone settings, and just use wifi which I think is available on the bus ¿

    Just looked at the dollar to euro .66¢ =( should of got it awhile ago

    Cheers Zac, will have to chat to Telstra as well before I go. I think I read somewhere that the wifi on the coach is not free and you have to pay for it. Not sure the cost of that though. Yeah the Aussie Dollar has been belted against other currencies lately. If only we had known! I will just take it at market rate as I need it, far easier even though everything will cost more now. Join the FB group if you haven’t already.
