    Hi :)
    I am doing just the Scandinavia part of your trip starting in Berlin on August 28 and finishing in Helsinki.
    I’m 20 and live in Brisbane, Australia but I am from NZ and travelling solo.

    Hi Kayla, Awesome! I’m travelling solo too – starting from Copenhagen . I’m living and working in Wellington, so looking forward to dodging winter! Hopefully we hear from some other people too :)

    I hope so too. I am doing 2 other Contiki Trips – The Easy Rider and Egypt and the Nile and I haven’t found anyone else on the discussion boards and I’m leaving in less than a month. I will be away 6-7 months also on exchange for Uni so I can’t wait! :):)

    You’re so organised, I should get onto mine so it arrives before I leave! I’m finishing in Berlin too, staying a day or two there so I can have a look around and then doing a trip with a friend from London. It’s going to be hard getting on the plane to come home. I should do what you guys are doing and just stay there!!

    I will also be staying in the UK at Uni for 4-5 months :) Also if you were wondering about anything I have received all of the hotel info and optional extras for the Scandinavia part from Contiki because I am departing Australia in 3 and half weeks.

    Bex – I’m going to be in Berlin for a few days before the tour so I can have a look around. I did a tour of Europe in 09 and the hardest part was definitely leaving to come home!

    Kayla: Does it have prices for the optional extras?

    Hi Stuart :)

    It should be heaps of fun – not long now! I’m heading to the UK on Friday and not sure how much access I will have to the Internet, so if you don’t hear from me you’ll know why!

    Looking forward to meeting everyone in August. I’ll see you in Copenhagen (that’s where I start).
