    At least yours is a definate departure… The one i am booked in for isnt a definate departure yet.. I am a little worried about that :S

    For some reason a lot of people dont go on this site to find people on their tours…It was the first thing i did when i chose the tours i was doing

    Have you done any contikis before?

    I am so excited to go on this trip..

    Wonderwoman – Our trip is a Definite Departure…even if its just us 2 on the trip!

    Im doing both Grand Nothern and Grand Southern Andy…Shall be fun!!!

    Ky – I know! When i set up my Facebook group and posted on this site for the New Zealand Contiki i did, only 7 people responded but we had 32 on our bus (out of 40 who wanted to stay in contact with us) Dont worry, people will come along. With the US dollar being so good right now, they would be silly not to jump on board.
