    Hi! I’m Allyson and I’m a 20 year old female from Canada going solo as well. However, I’m pretty much just toying around with the idea of doing this as of right now. If I do, I’d go on the trip departing August 7th (or as close to that as possible).

    I’m actually for sure doing The Easy Rider camping trip in July and I really wanted to hit Ireland and Scotland after. Originally I was going to do it on my own but I’m heavily considering doing another Contiki for it, so we’ll see!! Money is the only issue. If I do, it’d be awesome to get to know you!

    If you’re awesome, you should do the full Great Britain & Ireland trip on 3 Aug, because that’s what I’m doing. Already booked.

    Hey Allyson I`m actually still toying with the dates as to when i want to go as well. I def. want to go in August, b/c thats when The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo festival happens. Which is like a badass concert all month but with bagpipes. And to Scott i was actually really considering doing that trip instead, i mean its only a few hundred more and it includes London, but the problem is that if i do that trip we would be arriving at Edinburgh on like a tues. and i would rather I be there on a Fri Sat night…… for drinking reasons, plus their would be more people there. Have either of you used contiki before?
