    Hey Kelso..
    Oh Im sooo excited to be going! Its my first time to Europe so I thought going by myself this would be a perfect way!
    Im 29 and from California. Im glad to have this chance to speak with people before I go! I had a feeling that doing this tour will just get me saving every year for a new trip.
    So going to a new city everyday or so still make it fun? Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Hey Ryan..
    So is this your first time to europe?

  • 22 Jan 2007 Chiefer said


    Hey Kelly and Renee

    Yep, first time overseas actually, and hope it isnt the last time either!

    In the UK a week before the tour and then to the Greek Islands when the tour stops in Paris on the way back, so got a taste of everything!

    Hey Ryan and Kelly-

    Ryan, wow sounds like a fantastic trip you have planned. I will be heading back to London for one extra day then heading home on the 22 I think. Wish I was headin to the Greek Islands. Would love to go there too.

    Well Im a 29 year old female. Im a nurse and work on a cardiac unit. I love my job! But also need this long awaited vacation!
    It sounds like everyone is staying at the Royal that the Contiki hotel? For some reason Im at the Imperial. hopefully that is close…if not I think Im going to see about changing hotels. Does anyone know?

    Talk to you soon…

    Well I wonder why I was booked at the Imperial. I’ll have to check…would it differ that I got my trip through a travel agent…I wonder. Well if its 15-30 mins out then I want to change.
    My email is I done have msn or yahoo. Guess I should set one of those up.

    So guys what city are yu most excited to see? Well Kelly guess you have already been to most. What city did you like best?

    Hey Guys,

    Well it’s Sunday evening in Australian and the weather is great. I sitting in the lounge looking over my itinerary with a beautiful glass of Margaret River wine. I truely do love living on this side of the planet but am soooo looking forward to seeing Europe!!!

    I’m booked on the European Impressions tour which departs on 3 May and I cant wait!! I was originally booked on the one a week before but my travel agent has informed me that that particular tour was cancelled due to poor numbers. Frowner<!--graemlin::(--> So now I am booked on your tour and am soo excited!!! I have never travelled very far before so you could say I am a novice traveller from Oz…

    I arrive in london 5 days before the tour to do some London site seeing before the tour starts and will stay at the Royale, which I have heard is no palace but is clean and an ok stay. I leave Sydney on 26 April, so I get to spend ANZAC day at home, which I am looking forward to a few games of 2 up. If you are not familiar with this game I will explain it on the tour…it’s basically a game of heads or tails with the flip of three coins.

    I cant wait to meet you all!!! Drop me an email at

    Hey Jess,

    Hi Guys,

    Thought I would give you this great web address I found where you can prebook tickets for West End theatre, London Eye and stuff like that. There are options in the ‘book online’ section that allows you to buy fast track tickets so that you dont have to line up when you get there.

    I am going to book the London Eye, London Thames cruise, West End Theatre tickets and Madam Tussauds. So if any of you are going to be in London before the contiki starts, let me know as we sightsee together. I am looking at being on the London Thames cruise and London Eye on 30 April or 1 May. Plus there is a 10% saving when booking online….which I need because of the Aussie dollar exchange rate. Its definitely worth having a look at.

    I’ll also post this information on the contiki message board.


    PS: Less than one month to go!!!!!
