    Hiya

    Im doing this tour from 2oth April to 5th May. Is that the same as you?

    Are you travelling with anyone else. I will be going with my husband, with a few days in the uk before and after. We are sooo looking forward to it. It was a last minute decision to do this hope we have enough money!

    Hi! Been thinking about taking this tour seeing as the one i had booked was just cancelled…but this one is similar and leaving over the same time, plus i have had friends who have taken the encounter and loved it! I will be going solo coming from Kitchener Ont, so it will be great to make new friends!

    Sounds like you are all sorted now tho after the cancellations. It seems like there was heaps! Im hoping they are going to confirm departure on this one very very soon, as I would love to book and pay my accomodation in london and my travel between there and southampton and birmingham. I have a few days in each catchng up with family and friends, some before the tour some after! Friends keep reminding me it is freezing over there at the moment. Im not sure how I will cope with the cold!!! Coming from Western Australis where there is not really any such thing as cold!

    I am pretty sure this trip is confirmed…My brother booked my trip for me, he works for Flight Centre and they (Contiki) said this trip is a guarenteed departure…but double check…there is a 1-800 # for Contiki…I have been making payments so it has been easier….I am getting pretty excited…..not that far away!….

    Oh wow… thanks for that. I will have to email my travel agent and fingers crossed she will get it allconfirmed for me.

    I cant believe it is less than 2 months before i flyout.. actually 8 weeks today! We have been wanting to do this for so long. We have a week in fiji coming up too.

    Have you done a contiki tour before? The only time I have left Australia is when i went back to Scotland to see my family with my mum, and that was about 18 years ago!!

    I am getting so excited..I have not ventured far from Canada (Vancouver, BC) either….I have been to Hawaii,Las Vegas and Mexico but that is about it…First time I have done international travel so doing it “alone” is a bit fightening but exciting…I have never done a Contiki tour this will be my first….I was searching it on youtube.com the other day and it was interesting to see there promo video’s….my brother said their tours are amazing….It is so nice to be able to chit chat with people before the tour….kinda calms the nerves a bit….I cannot believe that it is only 8 weeks away…..WOW….

    OMG Hawaii, Vegas and Mexico…. awesome! I cant wait to visit those places. We actually nearly did visit them, but someone changed their mind last minute.. actually initially it was canada!!! As they say girls change their minds all that time, ha ha.

    Im so excited as its been confirmed, and ive been speaking to friends who have done contiki tours and we are heading for some great fun by all accounts! I cant wait get started! We have some nights out planned before in London too with some friends and I cant wait for that.

    It must be a weird feeling when you think about doing it one your own, actually doing somethng like that would freak me out. But seriously theres probably a few people doing the same, and really everyone will be there to have a good time and see all the sights one their own or not, so i cant imagine it would be a problem…. hell matt and I cant wait to meet new people!

    Yeah I am a little nervous as the time gets closer but I am also getting more and more excited…So you know a lot of people who have done the Contiki tour…I am sure once I do this tour I will want to go again and again…I am making another payment today… I just can’t wait to pay it off and get the official documents in the mail…I have my flight booked so I frequently look at my boarding pass and get butterflies in my tummy….Oh this will be so much fun!

    lol justjen! the weathers our biggest concern.. it only ever gets as cold as maybe 15 degrees for a day or two in winter and thats a cold winter!

    Glad you will be joining us. Got very very excited today as i bought myself a big jacket, and then found out Chris Cornell, ex soundgarden and audioslave lives in paris and part owns a restuarant/bar. Told hubby as he loves soundgarden and he actually agreed we can go there! Now just to find the place on these maps!

It won’t be that bad…JustJen you will be used to cold weather in Ontario…as I am in Vancouver BC….So I am sure we will transition…lol….Looking forward to this adventure….
