    boo, i have to drop from this tour. But have a great time all.
    I am sure you’ll enjoy it.
    Sounds like I’ll be taking the tour, 4 days after yours, so dont leave the places you visit in too much of a mess. and leave some alcohol for me. Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Hi Paul,

    I wish I shared the same enthusiasm for the holiday to start, at the moment I am apprehensive with waves of excitement. I was suppose to be going with my now (as of last week) ex, so getting into a different mind set of going it alone has prooved to be difficult. I am more at ease now knowing there will be others on their own.

    I am arriving into London two days early. I am planning to do the big red bus tour to get a quick glimps of the city before we start.

    My friend works at Contiki so he has been giving me inside tips. I am still puzzled as to how I am going to fit my sleeping bag and a towel in my bag with everything else I want to take too. You may laugh but that is a major concern of mine Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    hi Alicia, are you doing the greek island hopping as well? I think going solo is the better way to go that way u have no worries and its a good opportunity to meet lots of new people! I may sound enthusiastic at the moment but when time gets closer im sure the nerves will start to kick in!! As for packing hopefully my stuff all fits in fingers crossed!! Im looking at doing the big red bus tour aswell so ill know what to look for when i get back. Im looking at trying to get a job with contiki when i get back as on over the super cooks but heres hoping. what about yourself you staying in london after the tour??

    Good Morning Paul,

    I am going to be leaving everyone in Athens and flying home the next day.I think three weeks is long enough on my own. I went to Port Douglas alone for 5 days at the beginning of the year and was happy to come home at the end of it. Baby steps Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    I’m not too sure what the ‘super cooks’ is…..If you want I can ask my friend how he went about getting his job, what they look for etc. What are you working as now?

    Have you been to Europe or overseas before? Have a great day.
