    Hey there, can i ask a few things.?

    i’m interested in this tour. first we will take ferry to get across and once there the whole tour will be via coach all the way for the next 24 days? Hopefully someone who has done this tour before can answer my question. and if its really coach all the way.. wouldnt that be kinda wasting time traveling around the countries especially if the destination is far away?

    @Annastacia – Yeah you got that right – going to be a big change from the old balmy WA summer days haha. Yeah still in a bit of a pickle with what to pack need to start buying winter stuff – currently own nothing winter related. And not sure what the go is with christmas – we should all organise something as the trip progresses. Ill be having My 22nd, Christmas and new years in europe! going to be epic!

    Also staying at imperial hotel after the tour – i can see see there is a few of us hopefully we can keep on partying/exploring!

    Anyone done AM-sterdam for New years before? ive heard its hectic as one can only imagine ha ha

    hey Elyse have you booked any sort of tour for ireland or you thinking of just winging it. Iv been looking at the shamrock tours but i was thinking of booking over there or maybe just winging with whoever wants to go there by the sounds of things there should be a few.

    Hi Simone, I am packing heels for when we go out clubbing, Moulin Rouge and for New Years! I was thinking of taking a pair or two?! Are you packing long sleeve dresses?

  • 16 Oct 2011 Elyse. said

    I think ill take wedges for the nights out and boots and cons too :) and yeah long sleeve dresses my friend said theres cloak rooms everywhere and all places are so over heated so we should be fine as long as we layer :). i know what you mean its so hard to know what to take haha yay not long now :) :)

    Hi guys, thought I’d join in on the convo – being we only have 8 weeks to go!!
    Chad – what flight are you on from Perth? My friend Scott and my brother will also be flying out with me on the 8th Dec from Perth…
    Girls – I think I’ll take a pair of high heel booties for nights out, but for the most part I’ll just stick to flats. I’m actually going to wait until we get to London before buying any big winter coats etc, being that they’ll be more suited to the weather and much cheaper than trying to find something in Aus. I’ve also been told that they’re are cloak rooms everywhere so I’m not too worried about dresses…

    Hey Jenny im flying Qantas QF0071 (if they dont strike or crash). it departs Perth at 3:30, are your brother and friend going on the contiki too. I hope i can get some sleep and dont get too jet lagged with just the one day to get over it, but i think a couple drinks and realising im in Europe on contiki will get me over it pretty quick anyway haha. You staying on after contiki?
