    Hi all!
    My names Laura I’m from New Zealand and I’m all booked for August 10th!!! Can’t wait.
    I’m travelling alone also so I’m gald to hear there are others in the same boat as me.
    I am also going to be doing a few months of travelling around Europe after the Contiki but I’m pretty much gonna wing it. I’ll be moving to London and hopefully if my money holds out will start working in Jan 09.
    I’m also pretty keen to do Octoberfest I’ve got a bunch of friends in London who will be heading there too.

    Oh cool it’s good there seem to a few people solo on this tour.
    Only two months to go now!!
    Is anyone staying in the Hotel near where the contiki leaves from the night before? If anyone is I’ll be there and keen to meet up a drink the night before.

    I’m glad there are others going solo too…I was very nervous to be travelling alone. This is actually my first time out of the country, but I think we’ll have a blast! I’m going to be staying at the hotel on the 9th too. I’m definately up for drinks and meeting everyone! I’m on facebook so add me too.

    Hey guys, so xcited so close now, we’re staying at Royal National 8th and 9th too we’d love to catch up for some pre drinks. Just trying to save like crazy atm i don’t really know what to expect never really been overseas (part from NZ) so i’m nervous, just hope everything goes to plan and works out for the best! Our flight arrives early early friday morning, i think we just gotta chill out at RN until 2 to get into the rooms not too sure hope they have space to store us for a while lol.

    Hey guys,

    Anyone want to do Moulin Rouge on the second night instead of the contiki option cabaret? It’s 99euro for the show only, which is going to be a bit more expensive than the other. Damian and I are thinking of going but leaving the tour group on the second night isn’t real sociable so we’re trying to round up a few more people before we decide…… Anyone interested??

    Saxon

    Oh that’s a hard choice! I have heard Moulin Rouge is amazing though.
    You could possibly twist my arm!
