Hi to all the other lucky people doing this trip. Just wondering if anyone else is doing the trip on this date? Hopefully everyone is cashing up cause I'm looking forward to seeing the sites, a little(?) shopping and some great nights out! Only a few months now... Oh yeah!!! And to everyone doing this trip on another date - I hope you have an absolute blast! <BR><BR>I also have a few days free after this tour - but have no idea what I'm doing yet, but I guess the possibilities are endless!

    hey jade!!

    I am meeting up with some family for the running of the bulls. Stayin in san sabastion. I cannot wait for it!! Hopefully i can buy the white shirt n red scarf that everyone wears for it. I will be travelling on my own for the majority of the trip. Just catching up with the fam here and there. Doing the paris show on the second night of the contiki tour i believe with the family. and them thats the last time i will see them for a while.
    What are your plans for before and after the contiki tour?
