I just booked 2 days ago and I can’t wait!
Did someone say bungee jump? I’ve never tried but always wanted to.
See you guys soon.
You’re all very quiet. Less than 1 month to go!
Just booked a few days ago! Cant wait!! See you all soon, so looking forward to it!!
Welcome Brooke! Hopefully a few more of us will find the forums before we go.
I fly out of Toronto on the 14th and arrive in Christchurch early on the 16th. It would be nice to meet up with a bunch of our tourmates early to do some exploring.
Where is everyone else coming from?
sry 4 previous post I have changed to begin at Auckland. xo have a crazy time
I booked this trip a few months ago.. never knew about this though.. glad to know I wont be the only one going backwards! How long now two weeks or something? Where are you all staying the night before the tour starts? Im at the Beasleys hostel no idea where that is but I guess Ill find out! Anyone else staying there by any chance??
So steve your canadian! im going to Canada at the end of the tour cant wait. Im flying in to nz on the 16th aswell but wont be there till 3 in the arvo.
See ya all soon <!--graemlin::)-->
Looks like I am staying at the same hotel on the 16th. Bealeys seems to be their favorite hotel in Christchurch.
I think they get everyone together that night for dinner and drinks, so I will see you then for sure. I will probably be hanging around somewhere during the day if I am still standing after my 28 hour trip to get there.
Where are you coming from?
13 days and counting!
I will be arriving on the 16th early also. Leaving from Sydney. I agree Steve, it would be great to some exploring before the tour starts!!
I think there is a get together on the 16th put on by Contiki, and according to other people it is usually around 6:00pm in the bar at the hotel. There should be a sign posted in the lobby.
As far as doing any exploring during the day, that depends on what time everyone gets in. If you 2 don’t get in until 3ish, then maybe we can meet in the lobby around 4pm and see what we can come up with?
Let me know and I will be there!
Im coming from sydney aswell.. well canberra to sydney. 28 hours thats insane!
sounds good to me ill be there about 4
