Hi,

My friend and I will be travelling from South Africa to go on this trip. Is there anyone else going or has gone on a similar trip that can give us some advise on clothing, amenities any extra's and so forth which will come in handy?

Hi There {Smile}
Thermal jacket is a must.
Gloves you going to need it.
A good beanie.Something that will keep ur ears warm as well. So maybe the hat style ones .
A good warm comfortable shoe , there is lots of walking to do.
Tights /pants / jeans and socks you might wear in layers .

Hope this helps . Im doing there winter express 16 Dec-26 Dec 15 . My sister did the winter express 2014 so she has been my info guide ... So amped {Smile}

Hi,

Thank you very much.

Does not seem that there is as much interest in the tour from 20 - 30 December as the 16 - 26 Dec one.

I was thinking the same about my tour. I haven't heard from any one that's going on the dates I chose {Sad}
Those are the only dates I can go on so I hope there is a group.

Hey all, my boyfriend and I just booked for this week (Dec 20-30) we are very excited to travel Europe! We're coming from Ontario and have never been before. We will be flying in the day before the tour, wondering if anyone else will be around? Would love to meet up and even now get to know some of the people we will be traveling with. Can't wait to make new friends and new memories! {Smile}
