    I’m from Melbourne too! I’m looking to do short tours of Ireland and Scotland after the trip finishes. Yeah I’m pretty worried that I’m going to freeze, Melbourne winters are pretty mild compared to Europe I think!

    Hi PennyJ, I did this tour last winter, it can be really cold at some places and not in others. Be prepared with warm clothes and good warm walking shoes!! You wont need them everyday of the trip but you will appreciate having them when you do need them! We were in Germany in early Jan and they were having a warm spell with temperatures only getting as low as -5. I would hate to have been there for when they thought it was cold!!
