    hey there,

    thats awesome that we are going on the same tour, i was a little worried that i was going to be the only person travelling alone on the tour. where abouts are you comming from?

    I’m doing this one solo as well. I’ll be 24 by then, and am from Brisbane Australia. I’m all booked.

    hi there,

    i’m flying out of sydney on the 19th of june, hopefully i won’t have any jetlag… are u going to have a few days before or after the trip in london?

  • 21 Feb 2009 Kazz said


    Yeah, I’m hoping the jet lag doesn’t effect my tour.

    No, I wont have time before the trip. I’m actually flying over to London from Cairo. The trip I origionally wanted to do included it, but I decided to go with this one instead. I still wanted to go to Egypt though, so I’m doing that for just over a week, then I’ll be coming straight from there a day before this tour.

    After the Contiki I should have time though. I plan to stay in London for quite a bit to find work and venture around.

    hi Kazz and Will im assuming thats your names, well im flying to london from perth and will be arriving in london on the 18th june, so a couple of days before the trip, (trying to avoid the jetlag) im staying at the contiki hotel are you guys staying there? im also going solo and cant wait. i will also be staying after the trip, most probably going to get the train to liverpool to visit friends and family but am keen to do a few things in london while we are there like the london eye ect. anyays looks like we are all travelling from different destinations but would be great to talk on the phone or something before the trip… kinda scray but exciting going on your own Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> gemma
