    Hey guys, I have booked for this tour Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> yay cannot wait its my first time with Contiki – have heard a few good things and bad so im hoping for the best. I am 21 (just had a birthday) and come from Yeppoon in Queensland which is north of Brisbane. How did you guys go with your flights, did you manage to get cheap ones? have you paid everything off?

    Hey! I’m heading to the UK at the end of April and am hanging out with friends for a couple of weeks before our Contiki, and then am staying in the Contiki hotel the night before the trip, in a double room so I guess they just put us with random people!? I have a one-way ticket and am getting the UK 2 yr working Visa so am keen to do lots of travel after the Contiki too! Can’t wait, gona be so much fun Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->

    OMG wow are you serious? Im going to be doing that same visa at the end of the year (if i can save up enough!!) i will be spending some time with friends after the Contiki. So excited. Where abouts are you from in NZ, as im a kiwi to and just have been living in Australia for 1 year Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> miss home though. Yeah i guess they put us with randoms!! so with the visa thing dont you have to prove that you are going to leave the country after the two years? how do you do that?? what company did you go through?

  • 23 Dec 2010 Michelle_NZ said


    Heya! hmmm I haven’t really looked into all the details of the visa yet, but i don’t think you have to have a return flight booked or anything. Will apply for it probably around feb. I’m not going through a company, am just going to do the forms online to save some $. Crazy I’m actually an Aussie living in NZ (although have been here almost 20 yrs), i live in hamilton at the moment Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> where were you from here? And in Aus now? Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Thats a good idea doing it yourself as through a company you will be paying more. It takes a while to process it so make sure that you get it etc Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> I come from Auckland Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> but have been to Hamilton so much. Its a nice place. Im currently living in Yeppoon (which is a flight away from Brisbane) How much money are you taking over with you? I was thinking of getting a loan. . . have you paid all your flights and the Contiki tour off? Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> SO SUPER EXCITED Big Grin<!--graemlin::D--> Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->

    Hi, I’m joining this tour, paid for and everything!
    I’m really nervous but excited too, this will be my first time travelling by myself and leaving the country.
    I’m 21 from Adelaide, Australia and would love to get to know some people before the tour starts.
