    We are interested in it too . I just looked on the net about it too …..wow ,it does look creepy but very interesting at the same time .
    We have never been on a Contiki tour.Do you get enough free time to see something like this ?

    We probably won’t have time to see it unless we substitute something. There’s another guy on a later tour that was talking about it, and he suggested seeing in instead of the jewish ghetto while we are there, but if this tour is anything like my last contiki which was rush rush rush, then we probably won’t have time.

Im doing the Simply Italy trip with Contiki on the 26th March and then travelling around maybe going to Egypt and Turkey before the eastern rd trip begins. Im from Byron Bay and Melbourne Australia. Im scared that im doing all this stuff alone but looking forward to it all the same. Email me if anyone is travelling around before etc sazanami84@gmail.com

    Hi Kittsi. are you guys getting excited?

    Does everyone have restrictions with what liquids you can carry on board in a tiny sandwish plastic bag?

    We have those restrictions here in the states too, but you can pretty much stick anything in your carry on luggage. I’m excited! The tour starts a few days after my last day of school this semester so that’s celebration worthy!

    I usually carry all my toiletries with me in my carry on bag. Will be fun squeezing stuff into a sandwich bag!
    Jules what you studying?

    I work full time so I’m just going to school part time and I’m working on a certificate for long term care activities director and an associates degree in even and meeting management. I’m studying design and decor this semester for that degree. It’s pretty fun, and definitely a creative field! I’m taking some toiletries with me on the plane, but I’ll pack most of them because they are easy to replace if something happens to them.

    Hi all! I booked myself on this trip at the start of the year and I just noticed this discussion group so I thought I’d say g’day.

    I’m an Aussie working in London (with as much traveling as possible in between!). I’m originally from Sydney, but I’ve been living here for over a year now.

    Anyway, not too much from me at the moment, except I’m really looking forward to the tour and getting to know all of you.

    PS. So what’s everyone up to for the Easter long weekend? I’m off to South Snowdonia in Wales to get a bit of fresh air and do some walking.

    G’day Rich, welcome!
    I’m getting very excited about the tour – only 39 more days.
    Easter – nothing as exciting as you, saldy I’m in Perth so not as easy to just pop over to somewhere exciting for a weekend Frowner<!--graemlin::(-->
    I usually have a seafood BBQ with friends on good Friday then a family lunch on Easter Sunday. I’m looking forward to the break!

    I still haven’t received my docs yet, but I’m sure they will come soon. I think I’ll drop in on Barbara and join her beach BBQ for Easter!!! Cool<!--graemlin::cool:-->
