European Odyssey 12th September -29th September (5th Jul 15 at 1:05am UTC)
Hi,
I am booked on the European Odyssey tour starting on the 12th of September 2015 and ending on the 29th September. I am a solo traveller and this will be my first trip overseas. Nervous but very excited! Just wondering if anyone else is booked on this tour? Would love to hear from you!

Hi!

I am also booked on this tour and am in the same boat as I am travelling by myself. I am going to join in Paris and leave in Amsterdam though just so I can spend a bit more time in those cities. I haven't really seen much of Europe at all so I am really looking forward to it- 2 months from today, can't wait!!

I am also curious to hear from anyone else that's going to be on the tour so good on you for starting this thread!

Hi Frances!

Great to hear from you! I'm so glad someone finally replied. lol.
So I can't tell much from your profile - male/female? Where are you from? What age? I'm female, from Tasmania and 29 years old, though I will have turned 30 (Eeek!) by the time the tour starts. Probably going to be one of the oldest but oh well!

Yes, it would be great to hear from others on the tour. Can't wait!

Hi Jane,

Well I am female- Frances spelt with an e is the female version and the male version has an i but people always seem to spell my name with an i anyway haha. I am from Melbourne and I am 27, so pretty close to you in age. From what I have heard there is always a range in ages on these tours so I wouldn't worry about that.

Are you just heading over for the tour or doing more travelling before or after?

I wonder how many people will end up on the tour, if it will be full or not. Feel like I need to start thinking about anything I need to bring and not leave it all to the last minute!

Hi Frances,

I thought girl but didn't want to say just in case I was wrong, lol! I will be in London two days before the tour and then have 5 days in London after the tour ends to explore and go to Stone Henge, Bath, Warner Bros. Harry Potter Studio tour etc. and just shopping and sight seeing around the city. Yeah I have pretty much nothing organised yet either. I checked on the Tour Radar site and our tour only has about 8 places left so sounds like it will be pretty full. Just can't seem to get in touch with any of them, lol! Great to hear from you though - can't wait to meet. Are you staying at the Burns hotel prior to the tour?

Ok forget that last part. You're joining in Paris. Sorry, I forgot!

Hi Frances and Jane.

I just registered so that I can post on the forum.

My husband and I will also be on this trip.
I have never been to Europe so I'm very excited!

Looking forward to meeting you girls! {Smile}

Hi Noura {Grin}

Great to hear from another person on our trip. Seems like there may be a lot of people who haven't been to Europe before so it should be quite exciting discovering new things. A friend of mine is doing a Topdeck tour of the UK in late August and she just received all her tour documentation the other day so there has been a lot of holiday discussion lately. Are you and your husband spending extra time in Europe after the tour?

Jane, that is great you will have some time in London. I have visited Bath and Stonehenge on a day trip a few years ago. I think I liked Bath better, a lovely town and the roman baths are quite cool to explore. You can do quite a few day trips from London. I was also considering doing the Harry Potter tour, a friend got back a month ago from London and went and really liked it, though I know someone who went to the Harry Potter world in Orlando and apparently that is absolutely amazing.

I have been looking at things I want to do in Paris before the tour, so much to see and do. I might be tired before the tour even starts!

Hi Frances

We will be in the Greek Islands a week before and then we will spend 1 day in London the day before the tour.

Its really great that you have been looking into things for Paris. Don't worry, there will be plenty of nap times on the coach {Wink}

I have been trying to look into activities/ tours for the 'free days' that we have but I'm also just thinking to play it by ear.

I was also trying to figure out what to pack. I feel like we may need both summer and winter clothes for this trip.

Hi Frances and Noura,

So nice to be able to talk to you both!

Noura, I'm so jealous of you going to the Greek Islands. I was almost going to do that too but I am going on a week trip to Port Douglas, Queensland with some friends as a 30th birthday thing right before I leave for London so I couldn't really justify going to Greece as well. I'll leave that for next year, lol!

Noura, where are you from and what age are you and your husband?

Frances, how long are you spending in Paris before the tour? Also jealous! I think this tour will just give us a taste of a lot of different places and I will have to come back and explore more at a later date.

So glad to have made contact with both of you. I am open to travel tips and what clothes to bring as I really don't know. I am hopeless at packing, : )
