Hi Everyone!
Im planning on going on the European Escapade tour on July 1st... anyone else planning on the same one?
Ive booked my flights, and will hopefully book my Contiki trip in the next few weeks. Planning on living/working in London for a year afterwards as well.
Would love to hear from anyone else thinking of doing the same!

    Hi,
    I think we’re at 24 now on the forum. I’m so glad that my trip is fully paid for now, even my spending money is put away. Now I have to concentrate on working more to save for uni.

    I think that I will pack light. I’m also going to try a trick that someone mentioned, pack certain items in those little closable bags that sheets come in. Should keep my bag a bit more organized. Roll Eyes<!--graemlin::rolleyes:-->

    Hey everyone!

    So I just booked my Contiki tour about an hour ago and I’m sooo stoked, I’ve been looking into booking a tour for months now and I finally got around to doing it Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->
    I’m Matt, 20 years old and from Montreal, Canada. I’ll be travelling with my sister, I’m sure she’ll be posting soon. Just making sure, but this is the trip that leaves London on the 1st of July, right?

    I’ll be getting to London the day before the trip leaves (because I’ll have just gotten back from NYC) and I’ll be taking off on the 25th of July (because I’m hitting up the caribbean afterwards!) So we won’t be able to hang out with anyone before or after, but I’m definitely looking forward to meeting everyone and having the time of my life

    P.S.

    Stonehenge is pretty sweet, so Nicky, you should make the trip out there if you can find people. There’s a quaint little town just near it as well, Salisbury (or something like that) that you should check out if you go, it has a really nice Cathedral!

    Hi Matt,
    It’s great to have you and your sister on the trip. What’s her name and how old is she?

    Yep, you’ve got the right trip. Sounds like you’re doing quite the world trip! It’s great to have more Canadians for the tour starting on Canada Day.

    I will def be going to Stonehenge. Contiki basement has tickets for a bus tour going out there.

    28 people!!!! Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->

    My sister’s name is Carolyne, she’s 18.

    Yea, the travel bug bit me :P I still have a million places I’d like to go to…. like IBIZA!!! But I’m going to have to save hat for next summer with some friends.

    London is great, there’s so much to see there, I’d recommend the tower of london (you can see the crown jewels!) as well.

    28 people eh? This is going to be a solid tour!

    Hi,
    Whenever I hear of Ibiza, I always thing of the Venga Boy’s song. Roll Eyes<!--graemlin::rolleyes:-->

    Yeah, another 18 year old!!! Although my B-Day isn’t for another couple of days.

    Hey Allie and Yvette

    yeah we booked with contiki hey have a special deal with Qantas so we were able to get a bit of a discount which was awsome.

    Good to see another 2 people on the tour. and matt i dont think it will really matter that much about spending time before and after the trip with everyone. we have 25 days to spend together.

    Cant wait.. I think this is going to be an aussie and canadian tour.

    Hey Allie and Yvette,
    Thanks for the vote but I don’t have facebook. I will look into signing up now though. Big Grin<!--graemlin::D--> It was getting tiresome logging into a friend’s account to look up the chem class notes (yes my class had a group where we posted all of the notes Roll Eyes<!--graemlin::rolleyes:-->).

    Thanks TEAM UNIVERSE for setting it up.
