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 guys i’ve just recently thought it probably better to book at the royal national the night before cause i’m good at leaving things to the last minute like that
    anyway, i think i read somewhere once that we can get a discount cause we’re going on the contiki trip? is this right?

  • 23 Jun 2011 Trace said


    Yeah we do get special rates. I think it says on the site that you book it when you book your Contiki trip or through your travel agent. We just did ours with our travel agent and the booking voucher came with our Contiki documents. I’d give your travel agent or Contiki reservations a call and they should be able to fix it up for you.

    Ten more sleeps for us till we leave Australia yippee… Praying for ash clouds to stop or stay well away. I’ve started packing already due to being a procrastinator who packs a little then does nothing for the rest of the day and because I am a terrible packer who needs time to unpack half the crap I have packed in order to fit under the airlines weight restrictions lol…

    Probley also coz I’m miss organised OCD who wants to make sure I have everything so I can grab any last minute items on the weekend. The BF on the other hand was going to pack the hour before our departure until I insisted he at least pack the day before since its a Saturday anyway.

    Anyone else started thinking about what to pack or any tips???

    Hey! I’m really having a blast in London! My friend bust her knee though and may not be able to enjoy the sites with me tomorrow. I am really lost in this place and keen to do Madame Tussauds and London Eye tomorrow… anyone keen to meet up and do these with me? :)

  • 10 Jul 2011 simmo91 said


    Hey everyone. If anyone is in London and has a free night u should go to the pascilla queen of the desert theater show and watch it. I wasn’t keen to go but I’m happy I went cause I had a blast and it was hilarious!!! Have pre drinks at the pub next to it cause it is deer to buys drinks there. I think the show starts at like 9. But look it up on the net and book tickets. Defiantly recommend it!!
