  • 16 Jan 2010 Kristy said

    very excited that other ppl are starting to appear on the forum, it’ll be good to know some ppl before i get there cause i’ll be travelling solo…

    the option extras on this tour look awesome, there’s so much to do Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    u guys been on a contiki tour before?

  • 16 Jan 2010 Jared said


    my first contiki! so ill be curious how long i can last considering we will be in london from the 10th before we hop on the tour. what about you? you’ll be looking forward to ireland as we fly home haha.

  • 17 Jan 2010 Kristy said


    first contiki tour, actually first time overseas, so looking forward to not working for 2 months Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    it’s definately going to be a full on cple months but going to have an absolute ball Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> looking forward to the greek island the most.

    i don’t fly in until the 17th. so won’t have much time in london but after ireland, i’m back in london for a few days.

  • 17 Jan 2010 Nelson said


    This is also my first contiki and I am so excited now that it is all booked! I have travelled europe before, but last time I stayed in hostels and travelled via eurail. So this will be a totally different experience because last time it was just me and 2 mates, but this time it will be with a massive group of people. Im pretty sure a lot of people will be travelling solo on this, but it wont take long until everyone knows each other and we can explore the sites together! Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

  • 17 Jan 2010 Kristy said


    that’s the great thing about contiki, you’ll always have something to do with someone, great way to meet ppl Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

  • 18 Jan 2010 Nelson said


    It will also be interesting to see how many people on the London to Athens tour also do the Greek Island Hopping. We will get to meet a whole new bunch of people who are only doing the Greek Islands while also knowing all the people from the first part of the trip.

  • 18 Jan 2010 Kristy said


    yeah, i reckon that’ll be a good thing, after 3 weeks together, we may get a bunch of new faces Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Great to see more people have booked this trip!! Is everyone planning to do ALL of the Optional Activities?
