  • 10 Jun 2009 Daniel said


    will be 23 just after our contiki ends. im flying out on july 16th, this contiki is pretty much the first thing im doing on my trip.

    i think im in LA for like 1 or 2 nights before hand, thinking of booking the contiki hotel if they have one in LA. do u know if one exists?

  • 11 Jun 2009 CK said


    Hey Daniel and Melody,
    I’m also arriving in LA 1 day before our trip, i arrive around 3pm on the airport in LA and i’m staying in the hotel in anaheim where the Contiki tour leaves from.
    After i drop my bags in the hotel i’m going straight to the Disneyland resort since the hotel is opposite of that and the resort is open until 12 at night.
    Let me know if anyone else is keen on going there maybe we can meet at Disneyland?
    I just thought it would be a nice and easy thing to do, and i mean, you can’t leave the States without having been to Disneyland
    It’s like going to Paris without seeing the Eiffel Tower…..
    Look fwd to the trip and meeting everyone….

    Hey everyone…..
    Wow only a couple days more and then, jippppppiiiiieeee….

    I just read through our Contiki papers and we have to be in the hotel on the 18th of july at 7pm for a pre-tour meeting so, don’t know what will happen with disneyland…

    My email is so maybe we can swop mobiles on the email and when you are staying at the Contiki hotel we can text and meet beforehand and do something all together

    I would still love to go to disney, it’s across from our hotel and open till 12am…… Or we could just organise to do something else till 7pm and have the meeting with the Contiki people

    Well looking fwd to meeting you all….

    :-) Carmen
