European Encounter Departing Oct/Nov 2010

28 Feb 2010 Traveling_D said

Hi! Is anyone doing the Encounter in late October/early November? I'm still deciding on what date to go. I will be traveling solo - 29 from the US.

    Hey there – I booked a spot a few weeks ago for the tour departing November 6. Still seems like ages away though!

    I’ll be travelling solo too. I’m 29 from Syd, Aus.

    That’s the one I am hoping to join, my office seems to think it would be better (for them!) if I was to go earlier…just trying to work out the details with them!

    Have you done any tours with Contiki before?

  • 3 Mar 2010 ToastedHat said


    Sounds like a hassle. I just gave work my leave form and they signed it on the spot. Kind of helps when you have about 10 or so weeks in backlog and they’re telling you to use them up… lol

    This is my first Contiki (or trip overseas for that matter), so I’m pretty pumped!

    What about you?

    Hi guys! I am doing European Encounter with my partner on Oct 16-30. I am so excited with this tour, first time with contiki. Whoelse is going on the same date?

  • 5 Mar 2010 Traveling_D said


    This will be my first trip with Contiki. I did an internship in a small village in Holland about 20 minutes from the German border, so I’ve been to Amsterdam, Paris and a few of the small villages in Holland and Germany. I’m so excited about going back to Europe and seeing sooooo much more!

    Still working on the date though, my boss is nervous about me being out of contact for such a long period so close to year end.

    Internships in Holland? I knew I picked the wrong career!

    No worries, let us know how you go.

    I’m not going until the 27th of November but I’ve researched all the weather and anytime in november in London and pretty much any of the places the european encounter goes, expect rain and cold, max temp was 13 degrees in Rome! Enjoy!
