Hi All

Cheers

    Hey Foxy 666

    Awesome, I was suggesting on the thread that those of us who are catching the bus from London should meet up for drinks at the put attached to the Royal National Hotel. The pub is frequented by Contiki staff and trevelers.

    I’ve suggested this on the thread that is entitled “New Years”. I am going to create a facebook group closer to the time so that we can organise the night.

    New Years in Paris sounds like a great idea!

    Only just over 3 months to go. How exciting.

    Hi Fox

    I fly into London on 19 December too. Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> I’m not staying at the Royal National. I’m staying about 5 – 10mins walk away. I know the way to the Royal National though, that is a well walked path.

    I’m not doing any other tours this time. Last year (July/Aug) I was over in Europe/UK for two months so I’ve done the European Inspiration tour with Contiki and I did a tour of the UK with Topdeck. My favourite company is definately Contiki, though. Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Drinks at the London Pub on the night of 20 Dec, will be great.

    There is a Facebook group for new years. I know you aren’t in Hopfgarten for new years but it might be worth joining…

    What country are you from? I am from Australia.

    Cheers

    oh ok so we caould all meet at the basement and then go to the pub from there or something? and considering you seem to know your way around london is definately a good thing…..

    Hey Foxy

    Yeah, meeting at the basement sounds like a good idea.

    My trip is 3.5 weeks in total. Spending some time in Munich before going across to London. Also got a couple of nights after Ski Austria that I haven’t worked out yet.

    The reason for my trip this time is that I was given a flight centre voucher by work (long story, which I can tell you in Dec). It only covers a small portion of the cost….

    I probably could have gone somewhere new with the voucher but what can I say, I love Europe. Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    What are you doing in addition to Ski Austria?

    I’m from Brisbane. You?

    Cheers

    Hey Jill,

    I think we can purchase the lift passes when we book the tour. Not 100% sure, though.

    Hey Fox

    Yeah, I really need to decide what I will be doing after the tour.

    Your plans sound great! All with Contiki, which is also awesome. I did the UK with Contiki’s competitor. Contiki is my favourite, though.

    I’m a Brisbane girl, been here my whole life.

    Have your joined the FB group called Ski Austria new years? I know your not around for Ski Austria new years but you might get to meet others.

    Cheers

    Hi John

    Not sure who is doing the facebook group but I think the name is Ski Austria New Year.

    Hi All

    Here is the link for Contiki Ski – New Years.

    http://www.facebook.com/home.p…?gid=156157384396675

    Hey John, 5th time doink Ski Hopfgarten? That is absolutely AWESOME. You too would know the London Pub, at the Royal National. I have some great memories from that place.

    On the facebook group there is a discussion thread for drinks at The London Pub for the night of the 20th. Really exchited, going to be great!

    Cheers

    PS Has anyone paid the additional money to have more included meals? I was thinking of doing this but didn’t want to sign up to it if most people weren’t going to do it.

    John, maybe you can provide some insight on this one?

    Hi Adele!

    Yes John I’d be interested to know if that is worth doing to, going to book my lift pass and lessons soon so I could do that at the same time.

    Can’t wait to meet you all!
