Gday

Was just wondering if anyone was taking this tour. I'm heading off on my own and thought it would be good to chat to some people that are coming along on this tour.

Cheers

Adam

    Hi Adam,
    I booked, but for December. It’s too bad because I’m travelling alone as well and so far haven’t heard of anyone on that trip. I hope you have a great time!

    Hi Nikki

    I’m actually flying out on Christmas day to Bangkok for 4 days and then going on a tour in Vietnam with some friends from home (Vietnam highlights with contiki) that finishes on the 8th and then I fly straight to Madrid for the start of our tour.

    After our tour I’m training it to Munich for a night, then flying to Berlin and doing the Berlin to Budapest tour. After that I’m heading to Amsterdam, Paris and then to London on my own.

    I was originally just going to do the Vietnam tour and then backpack around Europe for a month, but no one else could afford to come to Europe so I decided to do a couple more tours. All up I’m travelling for about 8 weeks.

    How abou yourself are you heading else where or doin any other tours???

    Cheers Adam

    hey Nikki

    Your trip sounds made.

    I went on a european tour a couple of years ago with contiki (winter Wanderer). It went to a few of the place this one goes to, but the time in each place was to short, it was still an awsome trip. This tour seems to have more time at each city.

    Which city/country are you looking forward to going to the most. i’m looking forward to Florence and Madrid.

    Cheers Adam

    Hi Adam,

    Im looking forward to Monaco and Florence. Ive been to Italy before but spent my time visiting family and only got to see Rome.

    Ive always travelled overseas when it’s summer there never winter which im excited about.

    Hay Nikki

    Europe in winter is heaps good, a lot less people to contend with from what I’ve heard. There weren’t to many people around when I was there a couple of years ago. And the possability of a snowy Christmas.

    Cheers.

    Hi Adam,

    I heard places arent as packed which is good in a way. i hope it’s snowing.

    I wonder how many more people are doing the same tour.

    Gday Nikki hows things.

    Hopefully there will be a little snow not to much though. A couple of years ago i was on my way to Jordan from Egypt and there was so much snow in Jordan that we were delayed over 24 hours not happy when i only had 4 days in the country, but it was an experience to see snow in the middle of the desert.

    From what the website says the tour is a deffinate departure so we should have a good size group.

    Just curious as to how old you are, I’m 26 (27 by the time of the tour) I’ll probably be one of the older ones on the tour.

    cheers.
