    Hey Mate,
    I was looking at booking on the 19-25 Sep Oktoberfest but decided against it as its the opening weekend and it will be packed.Got some advice from my cousins in Ireland and a few mates in Germany who have been there several times. I am booked on the 25th – 29th option start and end in Munich. I am going to fly there instead, so I don’t have to sit on a bus for a day each way. A flight is only around $100.00 for the cheapest flight one way. and around $ 180 return. I am sure you will have an awesome time anyway.

    Hey Mate, Cheers for the response! I decided on the bus option as ya tend to have a big night out the night before with your tour mates at the R.N hotel and makes bonding much easier esp for such a short trip and I have a few freinds who live near Munich so I might stay a little longer after yet but am unsure at least this way I have an option to get back to London if need be. Definantly going to be an awesome time! :D

    I did European highlights a few years ago. but the oktoberfest tour will be the last stretch of a 3 month trip im doing which starts with ‘The Adventurer’ in brazil. when the tours done i think i have 2 more days in munich then off to greek islands for 8 nights then back to Australia. doing oktoberfest at the end of 3 months could be a really good idea…or really bad one :-P either way, really looking forward to it!! what about yourself?

    Very nice! So you’re spending 2 months or so in brazil? Jealous!, look forward to hearing all about that :)
    So it’s taken you a couple of years to get back into travel mode?
    Haha at the end of three months certainly isn’t a bad idea… It will be the last for me of 4 months of traveling, finish on a high right :p .. I do the Greek island hopping before Oktoberfest :)
