    Hello Kirrilly,

    We are from Perth. I went on a tour around the states last year. Most people were travelling on their own. You will be perfectly fine.

    Hi All!!

    Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->

    I’m the third musketeer from Calgary! (Alicia and Chrissy are the other two).

    I just made a facebook group called

    “Contiki European Inspiration 2008 (September 27 to Oct 15)”

    Hopefully this will make communicating before the tour a little easier Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->

    If you don’t have a facebook profile…..what are you waiting for?!?!?

    Cheers Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->

    Hey, I just managed to get on at the last minuet, traveling alone from Alberta, Canada.


  • 10 Sep 2008 Kirrilly said


    Hey there Jeff, welcome to the tour. I am also a solo traveler. As you can read, we are all getting pretty excited. I fly out in less than 2 weeks!!! If you are on facebook, you should join the group that has been started “Contiki European Inspiration 2008 (September 27 to Oct 15)”.

    When are you arriving into London? Are you doing any other traveling while you are over there??

  • 15 Sep 2008 Maav said


    I wish I could hang around to see a bit more but I have to get back right away afterwards for work. I get into London on the 26th.
