    Hi Naomi,

    I’m going on this trip, too, but I’m travelling alone. Are you doing the Southern Ireland portion as well?

    Hi Kim,

    No we arent doing the Southern Ireland part. We didnt have enough time before departing for our European tour. So we are hiring a car and doing it by ourselves.

    Have you done a contiki tour before??

    Hey Naomi,

    No, I’ve never done a Contiki tour before – I have a good friend that’s done this very tour before though and loved it (and she also went alone) so I’m definitely looking forward to it. I’ve heard that the trip still isn’t guaranteed, though.. have you heard anything different? Are you staying at the Royal National in London before the tour starts?

    Hey Kim,

    I dont think it has been guaranteed yet however i dont think there should be a problem. I hope not anyway.

    We arrive in London about Middday of the 5th, We are staying at the Royal National also.

    Hopefully gonna do a bit of siteseeing that arvo.
    How about you when do you arrive?


    PS my email address is if you wanna send me an email or chat on MSN.

    Hey Naomi,

    I think I’m also arriving mid-afternoon of September 5. And staying at the Royal National! Who are you going with? Where are you from?

    You’re right – the trip hasn’t been guaranteed yet (grr!) but hopefully soon. Just talked to my travel agent today and she said not to worry..

    Nearly finalised my trip and I should be on this Tour. Doing a 4 Nights Check Out London first, to catch the sights the Tour doesn’t do (Stonehenge, Romans Baths etc..), so if anyone wants to join me let me know.

    Naomi, what European trip you doing? I did the European Vista a few years back, it was fantastic and the people on the tour where great fun.

    I am from Brisbane…

    Naomi, The European Escapade covers a lot and looks great, especially with the number of 2 night stays.

    Lauren, My younger sister and brother have done several tours together. They had great fun, although there advice is to make sure the tour guide knows you are brother and sister. They have been given a double bed before due to having the same last name.

    yeh our flight centre chick said she was gonna make a note for the tour guides. so yeh. hopefully they read it. ha.
