    Hey! I’m going on this trip too! Are you guys staying the extra night in Dublin? Where are you guys from?


  • 26 Mar 2010 TBiv82 said


    Yay! Someone else on our trip! I think I am going to fly out there a day early. I’m 27 & from New Jersey – USA. How about you?

    I’m from Ottawa(Canada)and will be turning 25 on June 14, I’ll be in Ireland for my birthday! Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Is there a direct flight from NJ to Dublin? My flight’s going to be very loooong (Ottawa to Montreal to Paris to Dublin). It really sucks that I’m going to be in Paris for like an hour and a half but stuck in the damn airport! Frowner<!--graemlin::(-->

    Oops, Kendra…one thing I forgot in my email, I’m from California.

    I’m so excited to go! As I said in the e-mail I sent you (2 seconds before I saw this post lol) I’m not going to stay extra time in Dublin because I’m flying in to Amsterdam a week before and then heading to London a couple days before we are all supposed to meet up.

    I hope we meet some interesting people when we all get together!

    Hello there.
    My name is Luis M. Figueroa and I’m from Puerto Rico.
    I’m making arrangements to see if I can take this tour.

    Hope to meet you there!

    Kendra…there are direct flights from NY (JFK airport) to Dublin. I haven’t booked yet, better get on that! haha. You’re gonna have a fun birthday!

    Luis…hope you can join us!

    I’ve seen some posts on facebook that sound like the Great Britain & Ireland tour meets up with us when they get to Ireland, which will be the start of our trip.

    Theresa: I may just take the long way (Ottawa-Montreal-Paris-Dublin) because I heard that security is a pain in the butt in the States, and on many American airlines I have to pay a luggage fee of $50 each way (maybe it’s because I’m not an American citizen) not to mention JFK’s gotta be a crazy busy airport! Razzer<!--graemlin::p-->

    Luis: Hope to see you there, keep us posted!

    An extra night would be nice. Kendra/Theresa, maybe we can agree to stay until June 20…

    Let me know in case I book this week.

    Greetings. Wink<!--graemlin:;)-->

    Hey Luis…hope you do end up booking the this trip!

    Oh, Theresa you are probably right. That makes a lot of sense for them to meet up with us which is probably why we aren’t getting a lot of responses.

    Kendra: If you really want to see Paris, you can always fly in a day or two early and then take another flight to dublin on the 12th.

  • 28 Mar 2010 Pebbles1985 said


    Luis: I’m booking everything tomorrow and I WILL definitely be staying in Dublin for the extra night (leave Dublin on June 20 instead of the 19).

    Jennie: I think I may just hold off on exploring Paris right now and do a London and Paris tour at a later time (I also want to see stonhenge!) I need more money!!!!

    Also remember that (apparently) only 7% of people check these forums before the tour. I read that somewhere in these forums!

  • 29 Mar 2010 Pebbles1985 said


    Just finished booking my flight and tour (I’m staying an extra night after the tour), so it’s a definite go for me!

    I also found out that another girl from the same Unversity as me (Carleton) booked the same tour as us a few weeks ago! Unfortunately the travel agent couldn’t remember her name, but said if she turns up for any questions that he would tell her to check out the forums! Hopefully she finds us!

  • 29 Mar 2010 TBiv82 said


    I still need to book my flight! I’ll do that tomorrow. I wanted to fly out a day early so I’m not all tired for the first day of our tour. Not sure if I’ll be able to stay an extra night at the end of the tour, because I have to go back to work the following Monday…but we’ll see Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

  • 29 Mar 2010 LuisMa said


    Kendra, can you tell me in which hotel did you reserve that extra night?

    Theresa, you can always get sick… It’s just one day. Razzer<!--graemlin::p-->


  • 29 Mar 2010 Pebbles1985 said


    Luis: I’m staying at the same hotel as the contiki tour so I don’t have to switch hotels! Just look at the back of the brochure (or somewhere on the website) where it says “stay longer” “post tour” for the rate (or ask your travel agent).

  • 30 Mar 2010 TBiv82 said


    Booked my flight! Arriving a day early in Dublin & staying a day later! Yaayy!!

    Is it June yet?

  • 31 Mar 2010 LuisMa said


    Still waiting for my vacation’s approbation. I hope to get it next week… Mad<!--graemlin::mad:-->
