Posted:Hey all smile

I am approaching the end of my university degree and will be finishing in mid June. I am strongly considering travelling to Europe, particularly Scandinavia, between mid june to mid august.

I am looking at an organised tour of Scandinavia in late June to break the ice of solo travelling and will be free to explore Europe for the latter part of July and August. I need to return home by mid-late august for a festival here in Australia and my brother's wedding which follows shortly after.

Are there any spinners in Europe that would be keen to meet me or are their any events occurring in Europe that would appease to an aussie spinner? Or any advice you may like to give me? smile

Would love to hear from you! hug

Posted:In Brighton (Right at the bottom of England) on the 2nd August it's gay pride...which means theres a huge party in a field and loads of people in fancy dress just out to have a good time...and it's all free! (Also I might add, my favourite day of the year in Brighton! biggrin ) If youre about in the uk at the time I highly reccomend it and ofcoarse my house is not too far away so I would be pleased to offer you a fouton to sleep on for a couple of nights.

biggrin hug

Posted:tah blu smile hug

in the interests of maximising my 2 months travelling i've opted for tours in Europe & Scandinavia with PLAY in between.
however there will be a 5 day gap before and after PLAY between the two tours where i will appear to be in the UK smile

Posted:You'll 'appear to be in the UK'? You managed to learn astral projection? biggrin

5 days is not long enough! I know to you Aussies the UK looks small on the map, but it looks bigger on the ground..

At this rate there's going to be no-one left in Aus soon..

Posted:Trip is pretty much booked and paid for!

As I've never really travelled alone before I've wussed out and bulked my trip out with organised tours - also too because I have a 2 month window before I have to return home for some not-to-be-missed-events (i.e. 3uber and brother's wedding).

my untoured periods will be spent in England and Finland: I will be in London from the 19th of July to the 23rd before heading out to PLAY, and then back in London from the 27th to the 31st of July before heading touring Scandinavia.
I'll be in Helsinki from the 15th to the 23rd of August. Any Finnish spinners out there who I could meet? smile
