    Yeah fingers crossed it doesnt get cancelled!!!

    We are from Wagga NSW but are living in Darwin at the moment. What about you?
    Its our first contiki and Michaels first time really out of Australia on a big holiday so we are both pumped!!
    Is it your first contiki?

    From Melbourne but have been living in Canberra for over five years.

    The first big holiday overseas, how exciting! I’m a bit of a Contiki veteran, this will be my 4th. Have done Grand Southern, European Inspirations and Spanish Spree before.

    Doing any other travelling or just this tour? I’m going to Mexico for 3 weeks beforehand.

    Great to have someone else on board! Give the hotel a call or email before you leave and they can usually sort out early check in.

    Definite departure…awesome!! Can’t wait to hit the tables and clubs at Vegas and the slopes at Tahoe. 4 months from today :o)

    Picked up the paperwork this week, so happy they’re not staying at the Motel 6 in Vegas anymore…that place was dodgy!

    I’m booked on the California Highlights tour which joins into your group from Vegas.
    I’ve convinced 2 of my friends to come and do it too. Can’t wait. 50 Days left.

    Sooo excited!! Not long now!! So relieved its a definite departure too!! Is anyone staying at the Kyoto Grand before the tour starts? We are staying on the 5th and 6th.

  • 23 Jan 2012 MarkCbr said


    Staying at the Kyoto Grand on the 6th but don’t get there until late (leave Mexico City at 6:45pm) so most likely will just catch up with everyone the following morning.
