    Hey Everybody,

    I heard there were forums on the site, but just learned where it is on the site.

    I’m Chris and i’m travelling with my girlfriend Maria. We’ll be leaving from Perth, Australia at 1am on the 20th, and staying at the Royal National touring London until Contiki starts. When the tour is over we’ll be staying for a couple more days in London, then after the tours we’ll be heading off on our own through Paris and Italy until January next year.

    Only 10 days until we fly out! This is going to be awesome! Haha, i’ll be leaving Australia to go travelling with a bunch of Aussie’s! Looks like i’m the only one from WA though.

    Hi Everyone – my name is Catherine and my husband Alex and 6 other friends will be doing this tour. I know I am a bit late joining this forum but anyway just wanted to say hi – express my utter excitement for the tour (We love on Monday are going to Dubai for a few days first) before spending a few days in London so my soccer crazed hubby can see a game or two… Looking forward to meeting and getting to know you all!
