    I am also ready for 2011. First of all will be the return to Asia (Japan) as well as traveling all over South East Asia. I will be going through a tour company called Goway and one of the iternaries starts in Singapore and goes through Malaysia, and into Thailand for 12 days. Then i am going to Hong Kong for three days, and then off to Japan for ten days with a visit also to South Korea. This is going to be a fun trip.

    haha you’re not the only one! i’m all booked for a 4 week europe trip starting at the end of this month (my first contiki trip) but i’m already planning my 2011 contiki summer camping trip! saving really sucks!

    There’s nothing wrong with some forward planning if you ask me!

    I too am heading to Europe in less than a month (for six weeks) but that hasn’t stopped me looking at places to go both next year and in 2011! At this stage I think I’ll stay close to home in 2010 (maybe Melbourne or Asia somewhere) and then hit up America (again), Hawaii and maybe South America in 2011. My fiance has never been to the US so it will give him the chance to look around and, by tacking on Hawaii and maybe somewhere down South it will be seeing something new for me!

    It’s good to have goals and dreams, gives you something to focus on and something to work towards. I think it’s great that you have plans and are determined to see them through!

    I’m on the same boat as everyone in this thread. But luckily I’m going on vacation this year to Australia and new Zealand. My vacation hasn’t even started and I’m already planning for 2011. I’m stuck between go to south America to argentina, brasil, and the galapagos or to japan and south east Asia. Tough decisions for 2011.

    Can’t wait to go overseas again next year! I keep changing my mind, but I know that I either want to do the Eastern Road tour or The Great Britain and Ireland tour. I would also like to see some of America so we shall see. I’m so addicted it sucks!

  • 16 Feb 2010 Amy said


    I’m really keen to go travelling in 2011 also. I’ll be going on my first trip overseas this year to fiji (on a cruise) but then want to do a contiki next year…. I want to travel around Europe but cant decide on which tour to do and when the best time to travel is. Anyone got any suggestions… I will be travelling solo.

  • 19 Mar 2010 Laurennnn said


    im planning to do the 46 camping tour in 2011 as well. but i will probably go in may instead just because i think the weatehr would be a bit better. im not completely set on the date yet though. im going by myself ooooo cant wait scary but so damn exciting haha

  • 21 Mar 2010 CoUrTnEy said

  • 9 Sep 2010 MissLiz said


    Anyone looking at doing the european adventurer in 2011?

    Also any tips for the 2year UK working visa (im a kiwi so it should be relatively straight forward)

  • 9 Sep 2010 Amy said


    have the new travel books come out with the 2011 dates?

  • 19 Sep 2010 JoshS90 said


    Hey Everyone, I’m going on the 45 day Ultimate European tour with Egypt as the option in August 2011….anyone else going on this? I’ll probably be travelling solo. Also, would $10,000 Australian dollars be enough for spending money?

  • 19 Sep 2010 Amy said


    Hi, Im doing the European Vista (21 days). Tour starts 26 June…. anyone else thinking about doing this tour?

  • 19 Sep 2010 RJ1817 said


    European Panorama in May!

  • 19 Sep 2010 DaniellaP said


    Hi Amy, im definately doing the Vista but heard the weather is much nicer late May/early June. I will be booking soon. If you decide to go earlier let me know.

  • 19 Sep 2010 Amy said


    Hey Daniella, i was orginally going to be doing it the start of June however i am doing the first part of my trip with a friend and we are travelling to the Greek Islands and then doing Scotland and Ireland and we start in June. We then separate and i am doing the Vista at the end of June and then once the tour is over probably going back to the Greek Islands for some down time. Just came back from the travel agent and she said anytime betwen June/July is perfect. Am getting quotes and things at the moment so will let you know if it changes and i go earlier. what date were you looking at starting the tour?
