    finally two more people on my trip!

    I met wonderful Adam yesterday, good to see that im not the only one from sydney and now two more! Adam tells me that theres 20 people booked to go.

    Hi Peter and Nyalee! good to meet you both.

    I will be 25 this year and live in Sydney. First time Contiki newbie but not nervous just very excited!

    I am literally counting down the days!

    Egypt would have been good but I love the beach so Mykonos here I come!

    Perth and New York? how is this going to work?

    Hi Pete!

    It seems as though there are only four of us on this trip!

    I think most people have booked the tour for the 8th of July or prior to 1 July…

    Adam tells me there are 20 people who have booked! Where are these people !!! Confused<!--graemlin::confused:-->

    Lets hope there will be a few who will be taking the Egypt option with you Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    I thought I had booked the Egypt option but looks like I am going to be baking in Mykonos! wooo hoo!

  • 28 Jan 2007 Adam162 said


    Hi MissM again,

    I’ve asked my travel agent to give me another update on how many people are currently booked on the tour. I will let you guys know when he gets back to me.

    Also, he said he can only tell me how many aussies are booked on the tour and doesn’t have access to bookings from other countries, so there’s probably more than what he says.

    Anyway, hope your all well and I can’t wait to meet you guys in real life!

    Im Ryan and i will also be going on this tour, possibly with a friend or by myself im not sure yet. I chose the mykonos option, I hear it should be amazing! is my msn :-)

  • 3 Feb 2007 missM24 said


    hey there!

    we finally found another person!

    well I think most of the crazy folk taking this trip will be doing the mykonos option by the looks of things…. Sorry Pete!!! Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Good to meet you!

    Tell us a little more about yourself hey?

    miss M…

  • 5 Feb 2007 missM24 said


    Hey all,

    I have a question. I am hoping you might be able to enlighten me.

    What is with the food fund? How does it work? I have a whole heap of friends who have done contiki and have not heard of it.


  • 6 Feb 2007 missM24 said


    Yeah thats the thing… in the Contiki booklets this amount is not included in the price. The Travel agent actually told me. She said that I would need to make sure that I have about $1,000.00AUD when I arrive to give them. Im assuming they are the organisers, but will have to confirm.

    My cousins did the 21day or 28day contiki last year and they have no idea about it. I have approached a couple of my friends and they have said the same thing.

    Its a bit confusing.

    I’m 23 from NZ I am going on the Jul 1st option now too…I change from May as I have to stay in NZ a bit longer!

    I’m going on the Mykonos option too Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

  • 8 Feb 2007 missM24 said


    Hey there!

    Our group is slowly but steadily growing.

    Poor Pete…. another Mykonos option Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Pete you might have to change yours to Mykonos too :P

    Welcome Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    I went to NZ last year for the ski season…. all I can say is BEEAAAUUUTTTIIIFFUULLL!

    Bit like Oz but just so lush and green.

    Whereabouts in NZ are you from???

    Hey Hey Kiwi23,

    Glad to hear you’re coming on this tour! It’s going to be a blast.

    Feel free to drop me a line (msn or email)

    Hope to hear from you soon Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

  • 15 Feb 2007 RRF6A said


    I’m going on the Ultimate European July 1-aug. 14 as well, but I’m doing the Egypt option (have always wanted to go). From what I understand, we just get visas for Egypt and Turkey once we’re there (I’m American). Is this what everyone else has heard?

  • 18 Feb 2007 nilza said


    Hi there RRF6A,

    Another person going in this tour…FANTASTIC !!!

    Peter – You have someone going to Egypt now Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Im getting v excited now everyone…not long to go Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Speak to you all soon


  • 19 Feb 2007 missM24 said


    Hey Pete,

    You finally have someone doing the Egypt option Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Sure you dont want to do Mykonos like everyone else??? Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->

    Hi there RRF6A… interesting nick

    Welcome aboard I guess!

    Hurry up July I need to get out of here!!!

  • 21 Feb 2007 missM24 said


    Well you should know that this trip will probably be more worthwhile than June 17.

    If you love the beach then July is the best time of year for a european summer!


    hey pete another mykonos person….. tihihihi

  • 4 Mar 2007 CL_Black said


    I’m booking an Ultimate Euro with the Egypt option sometime this week and I’m really leaning towards the July 1st date since it looks like all the June dates got scooped up…

    I’m 24 from Boston, MA USA my occupation is, um…well I’m just a gambler for now but I do have a college degree in finance if I so much as choose to tighten my tie and rot away in a cubicle.

  • 7 Mar 2007 missM24 said


    Fantastic! Another person Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Welcome aboard….July is definately a better idea Razzer<!--graemlin::p-->

    Egypt option hey? Sounds good. So far I think that makes 3 people who are heading off to Egypt while the rest of us are going to be drinking cool cocktails and sunbaking of course Cool<!--graemlin::cool:-->

    Well at least it means you can keep poor old Pete company Wink<!--graemlin:;)-->

    Actually Pete has been somewhat quiet lately…. Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->

    Good to see another person on our trip!

    Yey !
