    One of my friends went on European Contrasts back in the late 80’s when she was 19 and I’m going on it in April. She said that it looks pretty much the same as what she did all those years ago and says it was fantastic as well. She only came back to Australia because of a guy she met on the trip!

    hey hurleybaby!!

    I did this trip about 4 years ago now and had the time of my life. I was a little worried at the time, because I was only 18 when I went, but I found that age really didn’t matter when you were on the trip. Most of the people on my trip were around 22-25 and were travelling solo. I find that because it is a budget trip, you get more a of younger crowd, whereas if you were doing superior you would find an older crowd. That’s my opinion atleast. I could be wrong.

    The tour itself was great, however I would have liked to have a spent a little longer in some of the places. If you have any specific questions about the trip just send me a message and i’ll be happy to answer them for you.
