Hello guys,

I'm giving some serious thought into taking in 1 test this winter (had planned on doing at least 2 plus a bit of travel, but new job with less holiday). Anyway I've just been doing some pricing on flights and hotels and it struck me that I really don't want to be doing it all on my jack, so thought I'd come on here and see if there's anyone who'd want to share a room/ let me tag along with them?

Most likely to be doing Melbourne, flying out on the 22nd and then back on the 2nd to have NYE there.

Cheers
Gary

Alright fellas, I am also travelling on my own after my mate decided to drop out! I am planning to go to Perth and Melbourne, and will be in Sydney but going to the game with some Aussie mates who are putting me up. But if you're around for either of the other two games then I'll be up for a beer or two...

Hi mate,

I am doing all 5 test's, managed to secure tickets with the help of an ex pat BA member - ultimate Lad!

May be worth exchanging phone numbers of facebook details nearer the time to arrange meeting up. I going to head the HQ Pubs to mingle as I am on my Todd!

Really can't wait for this now!!

Have you toured before?

Syd

Haven't been on tour exactly but managed to coincide a holiday to Sydney with my ex last time out :D one of the best nights of the whole holiday was when she went out in Manly with the girls and I spent the night in the Paragon with a mate meeting all the BA boys! Yeah will def have to swap details nearer the time, haven't got any tickets yet until they go on general sale but hoping it won't be too much of an issue...

Hi there,

I'm going to Adelaide and Perth tests on my own too.
I'm sure there will be lots of us in the same boat.

See you in the bar for a drink !!

Hi all, I'm off to the Perth & Melbourne Tests and I will be travelling solo, so it will be good to meet up with other people also.

I'm staying in Fremantle from 9th December until the 17th December & have tickets for days 1-4 at the WACA through the twelfthman allocation. I'm then doing a bit of travelling in-between & will be in Melbourne from 23rd December to 31st December, where I'll be staying with an Aussie mate who I used to play cricket with.

I have tickets for days 1,2 & 4 at the MCG through the twelfthman allocation again & fortunately enough my mate has got me tickets in the MCC Members area for Day 3.

Hopefully a few of us will be able to meet up for a few beers in & around the Tests!
