    I originally signed up for the Sept. 2 trip but I’m trying to switch to the Aug 31st departure instead, because it’s guaranteed!

    I’m from Guelph, ON. I’m going solo and I’m sooo excited! What about you?

    HI EVERYONE
    This is also my first trip to Europe and I am excited. I am from Toronto, Ontario. I too am going solo (although I must admit a little nervous about that). My flight gets in at 10:30 also. I think it’s a great idea if we meet up and kill sometime.. Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    I’m super nervous dealing with the airport by myself.. Anyone have any ideas on what to do in London?

    Wow, sounds like everyone is kinda on the same page here. I haven’t booked flights yet, but I know I don’t want to hang out by myself. So I would be interested in meeting up. So is everyone out of college/working etc?

    Hey Guys-

    I will actually be turning 27 during this trip. So it’s kinda a birthday present to myself. Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> I currently work full-time (way too much) at a large accounting firm.

    I’ll be celebrating a birthday during this trip as well! Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> This is kind of a 25th birthday present to myself!

    I’m currently working full time for the Government of Ontario. I was a bit worried about hanging out by myself as well – but it certainly sounds like we’re all in a similar position.

    Hello all!

    I just signed up for this tour and wanted to say hi. I am going solo and judging by the other posts here, I am not the only one! I will be getting into London at 11:30 am on August 30th so if anyone wants to meet up and do some sightseeing that would be great as this is my first trip to Europe and my first trip by myself so some company would be nice!

    Hi Morgan (assuming that is your name…)! We do live close together Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> Sucks about both of our hockey teams this year!! Gee, can you tell I am from Edmonton?!? Meeting up would be great! Have you thought about what you were wanting to do? I am going to be doing a bunch of stuff on the 31st but if you have something specific in mind you want to do I would be more then willing to hold off if it is on my list too, just let me know!

    Hi again.. Actually the name is Tonia.. My dogs name is Morgan!! Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> I’ve actually browsed some of the message boards about things to do in London, and I’m not sure what our time constraints will be.. Depending on when I actually get to the hotel. I read something about a Jack the Ripper walk, but that’s only in the evenings, however they did have a Davinci Code one. Maybe you have a better idea than I do.. Idea’s anyone? Oh yeah, and our hockey teams suck!! haha.

    Hey everyone,

    Tonia and Theresa, being from Toronto, I can certainly understand the hockey team frustrations! Eeker<!--graemlin::eek:--> Ha ha.

    I’m not sure what time check in is at the hotel. i think I read somewhere that it is mid afternoon. I imagine we could store our luggage in the Contiki basement until then? It may also be a good place to meet up. Just a thought.

    I’m very interested in the Da Vinci Code walk. I also heard that the London Dungeon is really interesting as well! Apparently there are also tours of Buckingham palace at certain times of the year, but I will have to double check the dates on that one.

    I’m spending two extra days in London at the end of our tour, flying back to Toronto on Sunday the 16th. Anyone else thinking of doing the same?
