    Hey both of you.

    I dont think they are far away. I know on the nz
    site some tour prices have disappeared which means the new dates and rates are being drawn up. Shoudnt be too long now Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Adel. There is a contiki europe expo sometime in october in Pakuranga. Talk to a travel agent or something about getting an invite.

    hmm well if the dates are supposedly released all at the same time then first week of october sounds about right.

    ps roaming_jafa, contiki nz told me they should hopefully have the new brochures out in the expo.. which tour(s) are you expecting to join?

    Hey all

    I know Flight Centre are having their expo on 28 October in Auckland…didn’t know about the contiki expo though. Do you know who I can contact to get an invite to that one??

    Cheers Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    I was just looking at the info I got from contiki nz. here’s the details:

    quote:
    British High commission is down its annual road show in October and the Auckland date is confirmed for the 11th October at the Alexandra Park Raceway, Greenlane West Road, Epsom, Auckland.


    i dont think you need an invite to that Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> im not sure if that’s the same expo roaming_jafa was refering to though.

    lulu83, can you let me know the details of the flight centre expo, do you know if contiki will be there? cheers!

    Hey Adel

    I’ve been told that Contiki are at the Flight Centre expo – haven’t been to one before so not sure how it really works. It’s either at the Showground or Skycity..it wasn’t confirmed as yet last time I checked. Just give the Flight Centre a call or pop into a branch and they’ll take down your email address and let you know where it is.

    Hope this helps..don’t really know much myself though. Will definately check them both out though! The British High Commission one sounds good as I’ll be staying in the UK after my contiki.

    at the moment.

    so not sure what to expect. Just waiting on

    birds of the same feather flock together :P If I could have it my way I would probably have booked everything months ago – to stop me from backing out.hehe.

    Half the fun is planning it all I think! Builds the anticipation!! Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    My partner and I are looking at doing Europe Contrasts in September 08 (depending on dates). Feels like such a long time away but I’ll need every day to save the $$ considering I’m staying on in the UK afterwards!

    oh nice Big Grin<!--graemlin::D--> Im jealous, but excited for you! I’ve been looking at some hostels to stay in after my tour.. the prices makes everything all real Wink<!--graemlin:;)--> brings me back down from cloud 9.

    Exactly! Considering you have to double/triple the euros and pounds everything is quoted in to work out how many $NZ you have to save Eeker<!--graemlin::eek:-->

    It’s all good…we’ll get there and it’ll be awesome and all this planning will be so worth it!

    right now.

    at the same time before – go us!

    haha. you’re sort of right, I suppose we are representing the kiwis, loud and proud.

    lulu, keep on saving! I have pretty much stopped going out to work every shift I can, and it may sound like I will have 2 summers next year, but you can be sure I will be indoors working all summer in nz (except for australian open Big Grin<!--graemlin::D--> cant be missing that!)

    roaming, let us know when you’ve booked!
