First Time Contiki! Travelling solo

4 Jul 2010 paigeee said

Hey everyone!!!<BR><BR>I'm heading on the European Inspiration (winter) tour from December 18th- Jan 5th. I was just wondering on a few things...<BR><BR>a) If anybody else is going on tour?<BR><BR>b) If anybody has done same tour in the past<BR><BR>c) What it was like travelling solo on any contiki tour!<BR><BR>I'm a 21 yr old girl from Australia, I had a friend bail last minute! I'm just wanting to hear from anybody who's gone solo before. How you managed and how easy was it to make friends and enjoy your self? I'm pretty out there, make friends easily, I love to drink and I'm up for anything!! I'm just heaps worried I'll get stuck sharing a room with somebody the whole trip who I dont get along with!!<BR><BR>I'll be in London for the first few night by my self!! Which will be a little bit daunting! But if anybody has any advice, please contact me either on here OR find me on facebook! Just search Paige Cardona!<BR><BR>Any replies or advice is welcome! The furthest I've traveled alone is to Thailand. And thats only 6 hours from Aus!
