    Yeah I totally agree with the date confusion,I just went with what the trip dates were from the site says.
    **I just went to the Austraila Contiki site and thats were the June.29-July.23 comes from and the Canada website say June29-July25.
    I’m so confused on the dates. Confused<!--graemlin::confused:-->

    yeah it took me forever to figure out. on the australian one it says its 25 days, because their day 1 starts in london, on route to paris. so the 29th of june one for australia is the same as the 27th of june one for canada… so basically our day 3 is their day 1… so I guess you’re on the july 1st one? I guess? lol!

    My name’s Andrea – aka, Andie and I’m doing this tour alone so I’m nervous but really excited Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->
    I’m from Sydney and 19.
    I’m arriving in London 2 days before and staying at the Royal National in a twin room.. is anyone else doing the same thing??

  • 17 Apr 2010 Haylee_Aus said


    Hey Andie,

    Someone from Sydney!! My friend Dani and i (both 20) are from Sydney as well…and yes we’re doing the same thing, we’ve booked 2 nights (27th & 28th June) at the Royal National…Dani’s meeting me in the early morning of 27th in London (cause i’ll have already been there a week)…so if you wanted you could definitely hang out with us in London on those two days.

  • 17 Apr 2010 andie said


    Oh sweet, at least I wont feel so alone then :P
    Are you spending the week in London or traveling around England? So jealous! But I couldn’t leave any earlier with uni exams Frowner<!--graemlin::(-->
    Are you at uni?

  • 18 Apr 2010 Haylee_Aus said



    Yep i’m actually spending a week in Scotland then a week in London…so excited! Yeah i’m at uni but lucky for me this year i don’t have any exams so that’s why i get to spend more time in Europe…you’re in the same boat as my friend Dani, she’s coming just before the tour starts because she has exams. I’m at Sydney Uni, where abouts are you studying??

  • 19 Apr 2010 andie said


    Oh wow that sounds amazing!
    I’m at Sydney too, small world hahaha. Im doing arts – trying to figure out what I want to do in life, but all I can think about is going away! Hahaha its too big of a distraction :P
    What degree are you doing?

  • 19 Apr 2010 Haylee_Aus said


    Very small world! haha yeah i know what you mean…since day 1 of semester i’ve been thinking about Europe. I’m doing Social Work (3rd year)…but i know how you feel, Sydney structures Social Work as 2 years Arts, 2 years Social work…Arts was interesting but i’m sorta glad i’ve moved onto my Scwk units.

    Hey guys i’m doing the tour with my mate, both sydney boys and 19. Names Tom and Johnnn Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    can’t waittt!

  • 22 Apr 2010 andie said


    At least you still like it Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->
    Did you and your friend want to meet up for coffee on campus sometime?

  • 22 Apr 2010 Haylee_Aus said


    Yeah i’m definitely up for that.

    My friend Daniella doesn’t actually go to Sydney, she’s doing Nursing at UWS…but i’m free at Uni on Mond, Wed and Thurs…the hard bit is finding a time we’re both free. Mond i have a break between 12-2pm (or after 4pm)…Wed im free between 12pm-2pm again (or after 4pm), and Thurs i’m free after 12pm.

    Let me know which is the best time for you.
