    ok people so at my last count, there are a total of 3 guys and 16 (maybe 18-i don’t know who Sam is travelling with, she did say two friends i think?) 2 of each are in relationships, sooo as it stands Geoff seems to be the lone male (unless he has a love at home) on our tour and there are 14 (or maybe 16) girls for the poor man to put up with…. I hope more boys join this for your sake Geoff lol and to give our boys a break Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Who else has there documents yet?!! I want mine so bad!

    Thats a shame the boys from the States aren’t coming on this trip…ahh well, we may bump paths at some point..

    hahaha- Lil Jolly, no love for me at home im afraid. I am single at this point in time. But hey, with all these ladies aboard who knows what coudl happen by the end of the tour ( I could be married, with a Geoff Jnr on the way) haha.

    Not long till the end of 2009 which means not long at all until Jan 6th.

    Hi all, I’m back.

    Seems as though there was a little bit of convo going on whilst I was busy studying for exams! Ellie-D, you sound like an absolute crack up, with a similar sence of humour to myself….a recipe for a bus load of crying with joy tourists perhaps?

    Mike and Matt, you dags!! You get us single Aussie girls all hyped up and then check out on us – bloody typical Razzer<!--graemlin::p-->

    As for my two travelling chumps, I shall introduce them, as I keep telling them to make a comment but they haven’t – epic fail on their part!

    So they are Nicky and Pete, also from Townsville North QLD (Australia). Both 22 years of age. Pete’s in IT and Nicky has just finished a Bach of Journalism and Business (she’s a clever cookie). Pete is CRACK UP, he is possibly one of the funniest and most innapropriote people I know. We have claimed each other as brother and sister simply based on the likeliness of our horrid sense of humour.
    You guys will love them both, theyre awesome people.

    Now back to me, because I am more important :P. So I will be in London as of like 6.30am on the 3rd of January, so I am keen to explore with anyone else who wants to me up.
    Nicky and Pete get back in from their scotland trip later that arvo, along with 2 of my other friends (though they are not cool enough to join our tour gang). I cannot remember if I said this already but I am staying at the Royal National hotel, so if anyone is there and wants to hang out, hit me up!

    Geoff, at this rate, you may have several wives and several children on the way hahaha. Perhaps you should pack the viagra, so there’s plenty of Geoff to go around?

    Alright, I’m out, I’ll endeavour to get on here more often and check out the latest.

    Over and out. Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Hope I am replying to this right…

    Hi All! I have been lurking for a while and decided it’s time to get my ass into gear and introduce myself! You’ve already met my friend Sam who kindly introduced me a few posts back Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    I am leaving Australia in 14 days and 9 hours (I have a countdown on my desktop – keeps me sane at work) with my boyfriend Pete. We are doing a Great Britain tour from the 27th to the 3rd and then going to meet all of you guys on the 6th!

    Can’t wait to meet you all – hope the addition of Pete evens out the Male/Female ratio a little Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->
