I was on the SE40 tour in 1982 and had a great time. I still have the daybook and if anyone would like a copy of it on PDF that would not be a problem. I hope you are all well.
Hi Sue, I was on the ME (mini European) tour that year but we were also in Florence when the Italians won the soccer championship. Our bus had the 4 brothers from Edmonton on it, and I think everyone that summer played the men at work song.
Hi Sue. I was in the EE27 group on a 6 weeks tour which left London on 20 June 1982. Our tour guide was also Tony and our bus driver Mudguard. We also played Men at Work, as well as Billy Joel all around Europe. It was a fantastic experience. Enjoyed reading your comments. Julie
Hi all and a belated thanks for commenting. Ever since your comment, Julie, I can’t get into the car without Men at Work coming on the radio! Again, okay by me. The nickname Mudguard did make me literally LOL. Since my original comment we have hit the 30 year anniversary of our contiki tours. Fondness remains, memories are a little fuzzier – I do remember the great bartenders and djs at some of the chateaus/villas in France and Italy – and having a costume party in Rome, with someone able to cobble together a pretty impressive pope’s outfit with sheets and a white paper plate. Funny what sticks with you… Take care, all!
