Question

Hey guys,

I'm 23 from Perth planning to do the 33 day European Explorer next year with the Greek Island cruising option. I am travelling alone, which was the main reason I decided to join a tour. Planning to take the tour that leaves in the middle of June (my travel agent said it would be around the 16th give or take a day) Anyone else planning on this tour?

    Hi Chelcee! My name is Bianka, I am a student from Melbourne 24 and I am also planning to do the 33 European Explorer next year in June! :) I am travelling alone and it is my first time so I am a little nervous about the whole thing which is why I am on here to hopefully meet some friendly faces. I only joined like a week ago so I am still trying to figure out how this thing works but would like to get to know you before my trip and maybe we might be in Europe at the same time! Hope to hear from you soon. B

    Hey Bianka! That sounds like a great idea, it would be funny if we are in Europe at the same time! I’m going on the European Explorer tour leaving 15th of June.. :) I also decided to go with the greek island cruising option!

    haha, yeah that would be pretty funny, I can’t wait to do this trip it looks amazing plus the cruising option seems awesome! I am not sure exactly when I will be leaving but it will be probably after the 15th of June now due to exams!! :( Either way it is nice to meet people like yourself who are jet setters like myself ! haha :)

    Ah that’s okay! I’m sure you’ll meet heaps of people on any tour you go on. I actually booked mine just on the weekend, so excited!

    Ah that’s cool, I’m sure you’ll meet other solo travellers any date you book! I actually just booked mine on the weekend, really looking forward to it!

    I’m booked in on the 15th of June! Can’t wait! I’ve never been on a contiki before but a few friends have and say that they loved it! :)

    That’s great! Awesome to find someone who is going to be on the tour with me! Are you doing the greek island cruising option too?

    Noo I’m doing the Mykonos option! I think we’ll be travelling so much jumping from city to City that it will be nice to stay in one place for a few nights! Are you doing Greek Island one?

    I considered doing the Mykonos option! But then decided that I really wanted to see Santorini so went with the islands. It’s great to finally meet someone who will be on the same tour as me! I haven’t seen a whole bunch of people doing this tour yet (maybe because it’s a little more expensive.) Where are you travelling from?

    oops posted the same thing twice.

    Yeah I think it’s because it’s the most expensive! I wanted to go on a longish trip around Europe but didn’t want to do the 7week ones (seems a little long) and I’ll be travelling before/after as well. I’m going with a friend of mine so it’ll just be the two of us so it’s nice to meet someone too! Add me ok Facebook, might be easier! It’s www.facebook.com/lulumaryharrison :)

    chelcee

    Awesome I’ll add you. :) And I know what you mean! I wanted to do the 37 day one but couldn’t get enough time off of work, and the 29 day one just didn’t go to some of the cities I wanted to go to. So went with this one!

    I’m doing the European Explorer plus Mykonos leaving 15th June 2014 @lulubelle! I’m travelling solo this time round so it will be great to meet some new people. I did a contiki tour with a friend in 2012 but no one was in a position to come this year with me

    Hey! Awesome to you guys are on the same tour! (Except for the Greek Islands part) When do you guys get to London?

  • 5 Feb 2014 Lauren said

    Lauren

    I get to London on the 13th in the morning.. I’m doing the Spotlight on Greece tour before our big Contiki. Are you guys staying at the Royal National?

  • 5 Feb 2014 Marina said

    Marina

    I arrive in London on the 13th later in the night and I’m staying at the Royal National. We could catch up on the 14th before the tour starts :-)

    I arrive on the 13th in the morning as well, coming from Perth, Aus. :) That’s a great idea though, we should definitely catch up on the 14th! Maybe see some of the sites in London? It would probably be more fun with other people. :)
