    Hey! I’m from Halifax, NS, Canada and I’ll be traveling direct from here to Rome. Mine shows a start date of the 20th though..? Are you starting in Rome too? I hope so!

    I’m a girl – Jamie, 28 and traveling solo! Super excited!

    Hey, my name is Claudine, I am 27 years old and I am also travelling solo! I am from PEI, Canada (glad to see another maritimer on board!). I just finalized my booking last week for the Med Trail and 7 days eastern med cruise on July 21st. I think that’s the same as you guys except a little more sightseeing at the end. I am really excited to know that I won’t be the only one on my own!! This should be a lot of fun!!

    Well well, isn’t this a small world after all!!! I am flying Halifax-Montreal-Rome…sorry we won’t be able to be on the same flight…But trust me, it will be nice to have some peace and quiet before the 18 days of madness that will follow!!

    I’m going Halifax-Montreal-Rome too! I leave on the 20th…about 3pm I think. Are you on the same one?!

    I am traveling solo too! I’m from Long Island New York and will be doing the tour plus 3 day cruise. Feeling a bit anxious!

    I’m sure I’ll be fine alone! I leave on July 18th, we have a day in Rome before the tour starts. Looking forward to meeting you all!!!

    Wow lots of Canada on this tour! Myself and my boyfriend are doing the July 20th tour with the 7 day cruise. I’m from Toronto (don’t hold it against me) and he’s from New Zealand. Looks like we may be the old ones on board (I’m just turning 30! ack!). Excited to see lots of Canadians. Last time I was on Contiki there were only 3 of us! We’re doing an extra night in Rome at the beginning in case anyone else is going early! Will be excited to meet everyone!

    Hello everyone,

    My name is Davorah I am 23 and from Toronto, another Canadian!! I just did a contiki tour this past may I did European Inspiration which was so much fun and my tour mates were mostly from Canada, especially Ontario, and I am going to Israel before this trip on an organized tour. I was going to extend my stay in Israel but I figured I want to see other places as this is my second time going to Israel so I just booked it today!! I am super excited, can’t wait to meet you all, we are going to have a blast!!!

    oh and also I am going alone, don’t worry a lot of people do it alone and we all get to know one another quickly I am also doing the 3 day cruise.
