European Whirl September 2008

9 Jan 2008 Binky1904 said

Hey, I have booked myself onto the European Whirl Tour, leaving on 22 September. I am looking forward to the trip. Has anyone been on this tour? Is anyone going on this tour with me? If you have any tips, email me at (make sure you write in the subject heading "Europe"). Does anyone have any good recommendations on what to do, and what I should be expecting on this trip. I am looking forward to the time of my life, and I am counting down the sleeps now <img src="" alt="Smiler" width="15" height="15"><!--graemlin::)--> <BR><BR>Hope to be hearing from you soon <img src="" alt="Smiler" width="15" height="15"><!--graemlin::)-->

    Yeah!!! More people coming on the tour!!! I’ll be arriving into London on 19th September, but I am still tossing up whether or not to do the checkout London tour. I’ll let you know in the next few weeks. My tour agent is heading to a contiki tour in new zealand next week, and I have to wait for her to come back Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    I’ll be travelling onto Norway, after the tour, to visit some family, before I start my working holiday. My plans are to work for a few months, then travel, then work then trave. I want to go to Turkey for ANZAC Day in April, the Greek Isles and Spain in July (for the Running of the Bulls), and I also would love to travel to USA. We’ll see what happens.

    Also, I am very excited! Our tour is compeltely booked out!!!! Can’t wait!! I’ll be arriving into London on Friday 19th September.

    I get to London on the 21st of September at about 6am, I moved my flight back a few weeks just so i could get on this tour. Ill probably be jet lagged but if anyone wants to check out the city with me on the 21st that would be awesome! I’m staying in the Contiki hotel. Wow, i’m really excited now, i cant believe the tour’s booked out! Thats awesome!

  • 31 Mar 2008 Roxy said
