    lol I’ll stick to water Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> but don’t you think that it would be fun to check out at least a couple of places like that though, don’t ya think?

    I have downloaded Eurotrip Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> I can’t wait to watch it!!! John thar “Scotty Doesnt’ know” song got stuck in my head! Would be cool if that is going to be the “day song” for our group Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Haha I’m down for some European clubbing…I’m not sure about the Paris red light district though haha. Water?? They don’t sale water over there, only beer! haha Scotty doesn’t know is definitely catchy!

    I’m a big Coldplay fan…I found out that Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow live on Belsize Park Gardens but I’m not sure which house. There’s a good chance they wouldn’t be home but it’s not far from the hotel, I may have to pass by! haha

    Oh my gosh! I also am a big coldplay fan, and that would be awesome!

    I like Coldplay as well, also don’t mind Nickleback and Bon Jovi Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> lol yes water but something tells me I’ll end up changing my mind about that Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> hehe One of my friends who went on a Contiki on a Great Britain tour last year said that if you order a mixed drink it will come as a “double” which means it will be extra strong…..unless you ask for a single! So becareful and I highly doubt it is only in Great Britain Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> hehe

    HAHA Alejandra you crack me up! I like the glow sticks as well, they probably give them out Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Haha I won’t be doing any driving so I’m not worried about strong drinks!

    Here’s some of Gwyneth Paltrow’s favorite places in London from a People interview

    Here’s her and Chris Martin’s supposed address….
    Chris Martin Top Flat 79 Belsize Park Gardens London NW1 REINO UNIDO
    Also, wikipedia says that Helena Bonham Carter, Kate Moss, Kate Winslet, Jude Law, and the Gallagher brothers from Oasis live in Belsize Park Gardens too.

    it will be nice to take a stroll arounnd that neighborhood, but i doubt we will find anyone. but i woulnd’t mind searching for Amy Winehouse Big Grin<!--graemlin::D--> . and don’t worry Olga, I got the drinking taken care off.

  • 2 Mar 2010 AlejandraG said

    AlejandraG

    btw Olga, I have a feeling that we are going to get along pretty well. Cool<!--graemlin::cool:-->

    Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> Alejandra I totally think the same thing Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> I definately like the people (including yourself of course Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->) I met on here so far that are going on this trip Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Speaking of drinking, it won’t hurt me either I’m Russian Wink<!--graemlin:;)--> haha Although vodka is NOT my best friend and I appreciate a good glass of wine once in a while…My fave is “Pinot Griggio” white Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    I gotta check that website John, got me interested Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Im thinking I need to rent Eurotrip!

    I love a nice glass of wine or a cold beer! Sounds like we are all going to get along just wonderfully!

    I’m waiting to get Eurotrip from Netflix, I thought I owned a cope but I guess I was wrong.

    I’m not a wine drinker, I’m more of a beer/vodka/rum drinking kind of gal. that is why I’m just gonna love waking up at them pubs. ha ha. Oh, and John, thanks for that website link for the british slang. It’s just “hunky-dory”

    Lisa – I think its listed as one of Contiki’s requirements to watch Eurotrip before you go Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Wine or beer is good with me..I’m willing to try anything there to experience the culture, no matter how disgusting haha

    I really don’t mind being the only guy on this tour so far Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    So do you guys think alot of people still havent booked their trip or that they did and just havent found thier way to the forums yet? I almost waited to book mine because i thought i might get a better deal closer to the departure date but then i got so excited i just wanted to book it!

    Poor John is going to get sick of all us girls!

    oh is anyone else doing the paris extension?

  • 8 Mar 2010 AlejandraG said

    AlejandraG

    I hear you Dana, Contiki does a pretty good job on posting videos of their tours, I’m hoping ours is exactly like that, ha ha. But yes lets hope there are more guys doing this tour.

    we do not have any extensions, but we are staying one more night in Paris for that we can go to Disneyland Paris and then head back to London for one more day of exploring. I doubt I will be able to do Liverpool since it’s about another 2.5 hour commute. Frowner<!--graemlin::(-->
