    Hey! I’m booked on the beaches and reefs from sydney on 4th Sept which I think is the same trip but ends in Cairns on day 14. Just noticed that it has turned to a ‘definite departure’ so thats a relief. I’m from England and travelling with my sister. Can’t wait!

  • 9 Mar 2011 Rachel said


    Ah that is good news about the definate departure!! i was a bit worried about that. Where in England are you from?? I can’t wait to go on this trip!!

    I’m from Reading, so not far from you! Where did you go with contiki last year? I guess they must be good or you wouldn’t be doing it again! I’m not really sure what to expect from contiki as don’t know anyone whose done it before. I did Trek America last summer from New York to LA and that was amazing. There were only 10 of us in the group which was really nice. I’m hoping our group wont be too big although I know contiki groups are normally a lot bigger than that. Have only managed to get 3 and a half weeks off work so thought it’d be a lot easier to do another organised trip and save time. We finish with contiki in cairns and are then flying to ayers rock for 2 nights and then melbourne for a few days where i have to do a Neighbours tour!

    I went on the Ultimate European pluys egypt tour which was for 45 days. Incredible!! Yeah there are definately more people than 10 haha we had 47 on our tour but it was really nice and everyone got on so well! I have a visa to stay in australia for a year so after the tour i am flying to adelaide to spend 6 months there and then travel round. I have made about 30 australian friends (through my contiki trip last summer) so am visiting them all :)
