    Hi again all!

    11 days and counting – starting to get anxious / nervous / excited … just wondering if anyone’s decided on the optional excursions as of yet ??? also, still wondering if anyone’s up for heading out for a tour & shopping on Saturday (August 30). No replies as of yet – I guess I joined the forum too late *-( boo for me.

    C u all soon – safe travelling!

We’re all doing a bus tour of London (hop on hop off tour) Cass, Kyle, Dale, and Megan are already in Europe on their trip the lucky buggers but we are all meeting up at the Royal National at about 10am so if you’re up fopr it and arrive in time you should come along, everyone is coming so it will be awesome!!

    Hi Tiffany!

    OMG – I know !!!! 10 more days & it can’t come soon enough!!! ha ha ha !!! Getting SO excited !!!

    I would SO love go on the bus tour with you guys buuuuuuut … my flight gets in at 9:55 a.m., so I won’t get to the hotel in time to meet up with you. BOO !!! My agent says it’ll take about 45 minutes to get from the airport to the hotel, so I wouldn’t be able to do the bus tour until probably around 12 noon. Damn flight schedules ;-P

    Ah well, it was a nice thought – thanks for the invite. I guess we can all meet at the orientation. Can’t wait to meet everyone and get the party started!

    C u in T-10 days. Ciao bella!

    Veronica

    PS: I’ve added you (along with everyone else in this forum) on MSN – hee hee hee!

    Veronica…hey honey, welcome to the family. I arrive on the 30th at around noon-ish so I’ll see you at the hotel. And I’d be up for some shopping and exploring with you. I don’t know whet optional activities I’m doing just yet but I know I would like to do the hot air balloon ride. Anywho, don’t be so nervous that this is your first time traveling abroad alone, it is for many of us!! But we just have to make the best of it and have the time of our lives while we’re away exploring the world!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi Shira!

    Thanks for the welcome … SO SWEET !!!

    Cool – do you get to the hotel at noon-ish, or do you arrive into London at noon-ish??? Just trying to figure out if I should stick around the hotel and wait for you (and Melissa, right?) or start exploring a bit before you arrive ?!?!? Let me know, k?

    Hot air balloon? Where do we get to do that? My agent said to try and do as many of the excursion as possible ‘cuz it’ll make the trip that much more memorable, so I’m gonna try to pack ’em in – ha ha ha !!! Maybe we can all chat when we meet and see what everyone else is choosing to do.

    Newho sweets, 10 days & counting … getting SO excited !!! C u soon!

    Vee – I arrive to London at noon, so it’ll take me a while to get to the hotel…

    Tiff – when I looked for the balloon ride I did not see it so I wonder if I had it confused with another contiki tripFrowner<!--graemlin::(--> But whatever it is to do, I want to do it!!! and dude, are you and I like the only ones doing Egypt???!!!! hehe

  • 20 Aug 2008 msznumeroUNO said

    msznumeroUNO

    nah apparently according to Dave i think it was, the Egypt option has reached it’s maximum about of people so im like gee’d!! haha the hot air balloon ride isn’t offerred but it’s been offered all year round which im so cut about. but im going to speak to the tour manager in egypt to see what can be organised if ur up for it?

  • 20 Aug 2008 Shira Mae said

    Shira Mae

    okay so I know I wasn’t crazy about seeing a balloon ride somewhere for this trip!! Yeah, we should find out what we can do. I want to ride a camel!! Will we at least get the opportunity to do that?? gee I hope soSmiler<!--graemlin::)-->
