here is a copy of our Topdeck Bus tour that we’ll be embarking on tomorrow morning at 6am:
Our trip is called Europe Uplugged, we managed to score our fares at 18% off at a flight centre expo, bringing the total cost down to about $1800NZD pp (900GBP). This cost covers our transport, our accommodation (I’ll get back to that in a moment) & two thirds of our food (each day they provide breakfast and one other meal – which varies between lunch and dinner).
Now when I say accommodation, I mean tenting. Topdeck provides the camp ground fees (apparently many of the campgrounds are amazing with pools & bars etc) the tent & the air mattress, we provide the sleeping bags.
This suits us fine though because:
1) We can travel further for less money
2) We can stay in the same tent (the hotel option is way expensive & the hostel option is separated into mens & womens dorms)
3) It also suits the general ethos of our trip “Have less, see more, do more”.
Now apparently the coach has Wifi, so I’m hoping to keep the blog up to date while we drive between cities, which will every couple of days or so. As usual, I’ll post a link on my personal Facebook page to let you know when they’re up!
Wish us well & for sunny weather!
Next stop Paris!
