    hey guys, i’m going on the 7 day tour on 9th or 10th of Jan so if you guys are going for 2 weeks, then I guess we join you. Going by myself at this stage. Don’t think it really matters cause contiki’s going to be awesome anyway. ;-) I’m from Brisbane in Oz.

    becs, i’ve booked and paid for the 7 day trip now so all should be sorted. I was checking out the photos on Facebook, the snow looks awesome!!!! Meghan, we should overlap for the second week. After two weeks on the snow, you’ll be a pro.

    I’m booked in for 1 week departing 2nd/3rd Jan. Im still deciding on whether to make my own way to the ski fields or whether to do the long bus trip from london… Any thoughts?

    I’ll also be doing Winter Wanderer (Dec 10), so am thinking it may be best to go from Amsterdam to the ski fields… hmmm decision decisions :S

    I sooo cannot wait Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Hi there to you all,
    Well I am on the 23rd for 2 weeks – I did the same this year, IT IS AWESOME!!!!!!!
    I did the bus trip – OMG it is sooooooo long but hey it is at night so you can sleep and it is a nice way to get to know your tour mates.
    I am doing it again on the 23rd jan!!!!
    I am a snowboarder ( yeh the user name kinda gives it away I know!!) I am South African but living in the UK.
    Oh the ages on Contiki are crazy – you can have 2 people the same age but from different places and get on with one and not the other!!! I am 33 and don’t find the ages and issue.
    Well hope to see some of you in Jan/Feb

    We’re bookd for the 9/10 Jan week – so i think that means Will88 you will be on my trip! You so should join up he forum conversation we are having about the 9/10 jan.

    The reason it says 9/10 is becasue the americans fly over to London on 9th and join us on the 10th, which is when we all arrive in Hopfgarten. Its just for ease of booking!

    Can’t wait to meet you all!!
