    Well, I start in London (that's if I don't get lost in Abu Dhabi or Heathrow.) acoss the channel Into Amsterdam, Check Republic, right down to Rome and back up through Italy, Switzerland, France and London again. Then an extra 3 days in London.

    Sorry, what did you say. Cant hear. :smile:


    Sorry KVG but i was here before you. I'm gonna be 'Super Awesome Guy', you'll just havta be happy with 'Awesome Guy' instead.

    Well Icon,
    congrats from another Aussie. 1000 posts is not bad from a bloke who is as nice as you. I'm going to celebrate when I get to 100 posts. Are you going to buy some nice gear when you're overseas? Perhaps you could retire the Nikon gear and invest in Leica. Also hope you get to drive a gorgeous Beemer down the autobahn. Much better I'm told than outback QLD roads.
    Cheers

    Sounds like a fun trip. When I went in 2004 for my senior trip with some friends we landed in Switzerland and rode an overnight train down to Rome then made our way back up through Italy towards Switzerland to come back to the U.S.

    Amin,
    how about "Aussie Champ" or "Aussie Legend"? Such a status would be ideal for someone so young. You couldn't call Icon "Grandfather" because he isn't even a father yet. Hey how about "Junior Legend"?
    Cheers

    Check Republic ????? Don't you pay by credit card :confused::confused::confused:

    Try a small modification of your program, Icon, and do a day in Brussels.
    Great little city, excellent belgian beer, "Moules-frites" in that season are the best ... and I'll gladly serve as your MU-4/3 guide !

    C U there ?

    Cheque Republic. Does that look better, I thought I had the spelling wrong.

    Brussels eh. I've heard that in a song before.:smile:

    Buying bread from a man in Brussels
    He was six foot four and full of muscles
    I said, "Do you speak-a my language?"
    He just smiled and gave me a vegemite sandwich
    And he said,


    So yeah I'd love to see you but I'm with a Tour group called Top Deck and I'm not sure how much we can stray off the beaten track. But we do go to Florence, Berlin and Dresden, so is that far from Brussels.
