    Lovely post on previous page kateryanpt, but unfortunately I'm not heading to Portugal! It's a bit out the way of my itinerary. :(

    Haven't travelled on my own before, but it'll be something I will do at sometime in my life. I too have travelled a fair bit, but I've always been with family and there's several places on that list that I'm itching to get back to.

    I'll have to try and think up some travel tips for Sydney....
    Let's embrace the point of no return.

    i cant speak of this with certainty because i dont know how networks work in the uk, but wifi isnt realy their business.. so as long as you are not browsing on the internet through 3g or gprs/edge you're probably gonna be fine.. There must be some sort of option that you can activate on your phone to block all data transfer and simply use wifi? i know my blackberry has such an option.. either way, you better contact your network and ask


    edit: wifi doesnt have anything to do with the network but that doesnt mean its always free

    Good luck ol' chap, have fun etc. If you make it to London on the way back or something, I'll have a beer waiting for ya.
    This post is highly unlikely to be serious. Please treat it accordingly. Unless it's music-related, in which case I'm damn well right.

    Wow Chris, I'm actually excited for you and quite jealous! Must feel great to leave everything behind and set off on an unknown adventure, think of all the new people you'll meet and experiences that await you.

    Best of luck and don't be a stranger!

    Wow. Lucky you!
    I'd never be brave enough to do that.
    So instead I have to wait for my friends to get there act together (money) so we can one day head out, oh well.

    Have an awesome time Plym - hope it's everything you expect, as well as a little of what you don't, I'm so unimagineably jealous.

    Hello!
    Ive had a few PMs and Facebook messages asking where I am etc so I thought I would update the forum...
    Im currently in the German capital of Berlin today! Having visited the East Side Gallery of the wall and tried Currywurst.
    So far I have been to Pisa, Florence, Rome, Venice, Vienna, Budapest, Krakow & Prague.
    Shouldnt be too long till Im back in the UK and Ill be glad as Im exhausted and dying for some proper British food!!! Photos will come when my trusty laptop is in my hands.
    Auf weidersein!
