    Hi Ashlee,

    Hi Guys,

    My name is Andrew (but everyone calls me Thommo) and I have just booked onto this trip. It is my third Contiki. I am really looking forward to it. Booked on with a mate of my from here in the UK. I am an Aussie but been living in the UK for almost 3 years. It shall be my last hurrah in Europe before I head back to Australia!

    Looking forward to a great trip and meeting everyone. On my last Contiki one of the girls started a Facebook group before we left to share ideas etc. Has anyone done this for this tour yet?

    Hello Everybody! I’m Krystle from Canada and I’ll be travelling with my cousin Kyle on the Sept 24th European Impressions tour. I see that Ashlee has a list of hotels that we will be staying at? Would you mind emailing me the list too please?

    Thanks and looking forward to meeting everyone! I can’t believe it’s only a couple weeks away! :)

    Hi Everyone,

    Hope that you are all getting excited about our trip, won’t be long now!!! :) I was wondering if anyone would like to meet up on the 25th to do some siteseeing in London during the day before our meeting at 6pm. Or maybe we could go for dinner afterwards, I’m open to whatever people want to do. I do have one thing planned for the 25th, I bought a ticket to go inside Buckingham Palace, figure since I’m there might as well go inside since it happens only 2 months out of the year.

    Krystle what part of Canada are you from, I’m from Montreal, great to see another canuck going !!!! I’ll try to email you the list of hotels tonight when I get home from work.
    Hi Thommo what other contiki tour have you done before?

    Hey guys!
    I’m Ally, representing the Canadians on this trip (holy Aussies!) travelling solo and I’m soo stoked, it’s so soon! I’m leaving Toronto next week on Sept 15th and heading to London for a bit before our trip starts. Is there a Facebook group created for our group at all?
    Can’t wait to meet you all, sounds like we’re going to have the time of our lives :)

    Hey Guys,

    I’m Laura and I’m from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Traveling solo as well and this is also my first contiki trip! Super pumped for this adventure… just like everyone else.
    See you guys soon!

    I don’t think there is a Facebook group, so I will start one up tonight and drop a link into here if people want to jump on there. Makes it easier to communicate and people can exchange info easier than on here.


    AJ (my mate going on tour as well) and myself will be in London on the 25th – not sure exactly when yet. We will be coming down on the train from Manchester. I am sure we would be keen for some dinner after the 6pm meeting.

    The other two trips I did were a European Vista (a while ago) and the UK and Ireland tour last year. Had such a great time last year just had to come back and do one more before going back!!! Met some amazing people and have been in regular contact since (A group of 6 of us all met up in Vegas earlier this year for the Easter Long weekend!)
