    Hey! I’m Jenna, 22 from Vancouver Canada, graduating university in april and decided to treat myself to this trip as a little grad present Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> I’m traveling solo and soooo excited that it looks like i’m not the only one.
    My flight gets in at 10:30 on the morning of the 9th and I would also love to meet up for a bevey.
    I’m heading to Ireland when our tour finishes in Athens, but would probably like a few more days in Greece before flying to Dublin. Really flexible at this point. Anybody else sticking around afterwards?

    hey guys,

    i’m travelling with penny on this trip, can’t wait! we’re definitely keen to stay on in Greece after the tour finishes, seeing as we’re staying in the country until the middle of September, basing ourselves at my grandma’s house in Thessaloniki. not long to go now!

    awesome! I love everyones attitude.
    I’ve talked to some ppl who have spent a lot of time in greece and apparently it’s unbearably hot on the mainland (ie athens) so everybody grabs a ferry out to the islands… I’ve looked into it a bit, and it seems like it’d be pretty easy to get a hostel for about 10 euro a night on any of the islands, so I think I’m gonna reserve one of those for a few nights after our tour if anyone is interested

    at the moment I’m only staying one extra day in athens after the tour but I’m so so tempted to stay longer! I’m staying at the Royal before the tour too!

    I’m crazy excited for this trip! its so hard to concentrate at work knowing what awesome fun we will be having in a couple of months time!

    ohhhhh you should let us know where u will stay on in athens for that nite… con and i will totally do it too!?!?

    We could probably wait until we’re all there and then ask the tour guide’s advice on where to stay. Shouldn’t be that tricky to all get a hostel for a night in Athens should it?

    Also, if anyone has arranged a meeting place/time around the Royal National June 9th let me know!

    I’m booked in to stay at the Plaka Hotel in Athens for my extra night, my travel agent sorted it out for me. I’m pretty sure thats the hotel the tour finishes at.
    I get my luggage next weekend at my 21st party!!! Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->

    Hey everyone, I’m Denise from Texas and I’m SO excited for this trip! I’m bummed because I am not going on to Athens but I wanted to save it for later. Looks like it’s a lot of girls and Australians! Holla! I feel old though, I’m 25, compared to you young gals at 22! I guess the place to stay in London on the first night is the Royal? That’s all I see here…
