    My best friend and I are doing the European Whirl. We leave the U.S. on Sept 22nd and return on Oct. 11th. Is this the same trip you are doing?

    Hi Kelie! Yes, you guys are on the same trip as me! Cool! Really looking forward to it, got my new luggage already and looking at new digital cameras. I am travelling alone until I get to hong kong (meeting my man and parents there) so it would be great to have some new friends before I go. If you want to drop me a line you can do so at ccircus@bigpond.com.au. Sal Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Hey guys,

    I am also going on this tour. Booked it today, so I am getting really excited. I will be spending 2 nights in London before the tour and then 4 nights again after the tour. My first time overseas so a little nervous as well (as I am going by myself).

    If you want to chat email me at louella@ozemail.com.au

    PS I am a 25 year old female from Australia (in case you were wondering)

    Hi Wella, Where in Qld are you from? I am in Mackay. I’m doing a tour of great britan before europe but will be in london four days between my two trips so we will definitely have to catch up. I am 28 and will be travelling on my own until my stop in hong kong on the way home where I meet my other half and parents. Would love to catch up before the tour starts.

    Hi Sally and Wella, I am Wendy. I am Kelie’s best friend and as she said we are traveling on the same tour. I am so exciteed to have the chance to talk with you guys before we go. I have talked to a whole bunch of people that have either done the Contiki tours before or have been tour guides on them and everyone says that it will be a really good time. I’d love to chat with you two and get to know you. Please email me at wendy10983@yahoo.com. I will be turning 24 while we are in europe and live in New Hampshire. Its a dinky little state in eastern US where it is cold 9 months out of the year. This is my first time every traveling over seas and have been told that Ausie’s are problably the best people to get to know. I look forward to chatting with you.

    Oh its sad…I might not be going on this trip anymore. I was checking the site last night and realised that it said that the trip was no longer availiable (I am guessing it has filled up), and I emailed my travel agent to see if I got on it, and he said that he had put a request in for me and it just waiting to hear back from Contiki.

    Keep your fingers crossed, I hope I made it, if not I will have to go and organise different flights and all that.

    Hey Wella, I have got my fingers crossed for you. When my travel agent first told me the trip was booked up i thought she meant that Kelie and I weren’t able to go and I freaked out. Then she told me that it was booked and I was going. I was so relieved and excited so I hope you are going. Well keep us posted.

    Ahh I missed out on this trip which I was bummed about but not much that I can do. At least you know now that it is a full trip and will no doubt be heaps of fun. I have booked for the Whirl departing on the 17th of September now so that I can still go to Oktoberfest. ha ha ha

    Hi There! I’m Melissa, 24 from Melbourne Australia. I’m thinking of doing the Eurpoean Wirl 24/9, then spending a couple of nights in London after the trip. I haven’t booked yet, as I’m not 100% sure about going alone. After reading your messages I’m a little more confident as I wont be the only one alone! Haven’t been to Europe before so it will be very exciting!!
    If anyone wants to email me its:
    melissa.hagley@yahoo.com.au
    Hopefully I will see you on the trip!!! Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Ok I just checked the info about the tours and it seems that this tour is no longer booked out. Hmmm now I am spewing, cos I am already booked on the other tour. Bugger. That sucks.

    Oh well Melly hope you get on the tour now.

    Hey everyone – I just booked this trip; it was in “request status” when I called, which meant they had to forward the booking to London to get confirmation, which took a day. They didn’t mention anything about multiple trips going at the same time or that it wasn’t guaranteed, though I didn’t think to ask either Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->. Looking forward to seeing some, if not all, of you in September!

    Hey! I’m so stoked, I just booked this tour yesterday (so I’m guessing I’m in the 2nd group? How do you know?). Anyway, I’ll be in various parts of europe from August 30 to November 30 (which is as long as I get without a visa, haha), so if anyone wants a travel buddy before or after the trip, let me know! See you in September! Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Laura,

    You have the right trip! North American travelers fly out on the 22nd but the coach leaves on the 24th. There will be a pretour meeting the night of the 23rd in the Contiki Basement.
