This rally represents yet another effective way of socialising and integration providing the opportunity for like-minded people to meet new friends and exchange ideas and experiences in an informal atmosphere. Please contact John to book your space now - only 4 spaces remaining at this time.

Cost: 2000 Euros plus shared expenses.

It is important to book early so travel arrangements can be made. In addition, you may require visas for some of the countries we visit. Once your agenda has been arranged, most of these can be obtained in local consulates and embassies.
