    Actually do I need a passport? Or can I use my full driving license?

    I think you would need a passport Lisa -

    The UK isn't part of the Schengen agreement (or something) so you'd need a passport to get into Europe. Once there, you can travel within many of the other EU countries though without needing a passport.

    Oh, I think the Rangie for that trip - far more chance of tanks getting there in one piece, plus you'd only get a pico or 2 in the 350z :lol:

    You bet ! Back seats also closer to the boot, where your beer stash would be :lol: :D

    Soooo... I was wondering about this today. Who's planning on going? Should we start a new thread to organise group travel/lodgings etc etc?

    I'd love to go, but as ever I'm stuck without transport :rolleyes: Would gladly hitch a ride with someone and split costs of fuel etc!

    I'd love to go to, I can waiver it with uni as an educational trip too! The joys of landscape architecture! Who knows how long it takes to get a passport these days?

    Ideally you need to allow 6 weeks mate, but mine took about 3 last July/August. There is a fast track service which you pay through the nose for!

    If there is assitance needed in finding a descend hotel close to the venue (and make use of the group rates we already have as Vivarium organizer) just give me a shout.

    Ok, I am on it!

    I will let you know once I can get you the rates for the Mercure Hotel in Nieuwegein, which is very close to the venue.
    It should be around EUR 70,- a night, including breakfast and usage of full hotel facilities (swimming pool, sauna, fitness).

    I want to go to this, if anyone has space in their car please let me know.
    Happy to pay my share of petrol of course, and can share with driving if that is helpful.
