    I’m most likely gonna book this tour too, trying to convince my friend to come along but if she can’t I’ll be travelling solo too! :)
    Visa wise… I think travel agents can normally organise all that stuff for you. For instance, I’ll be booking through STA Travel and they’re really good at doing everything for you :)

    Hi Janine! Where abouts are you from? That’s awesome I hope you do end up booking this tour! I am so excited! In regards to the VISAs my travel agent has helped me arrange my Russian visa and Belarus is organized on tour apparently :)

    I’m from Australia :) where are you from? Wow I didn’t know we needed one for Belarus..
    I did the European Vista Contiki tour a year ago so I’m keen to go to other parts of Europe, hopefully I end up doing this one :) Have you travelled on your own before, Rebecca?

    I am from Adelaide :) where abouts in Australia are you from? Yes we do need a VISA for Belarus but my Travel agent assured me that it is organised whilst on tour! Oh wow nice! I have been to western Europe before and I am so excited to see Scandinavia and Russia! I hope you end up doing this tour to :) I have travelled solo before I did a contiki tour through NZ last year and it was one of the best experiences on my life, I made so many amazing friends! how about you?

    Omg I’m from Adelaide too! Haha that’s so funny :)
    I did the European vista tour on my own and I still talk to some of them. That’s why I’m not too scared about travelling on my own if my friend doesn’t end up coming with me. You always end up making so many friends! :)

    Hey guys!

    I’m doing the Scandinavia part only, so I pretty sure we are on the same tour, except you guys will charge on through to Russia. Are you all starting in Berlin or Copenhagen? :)
