    I’m debating on it, I dont have much time left to decide, but i’ve been toying with the idea between doing a european tour, or a australian tour. I’m leaning towards doing this one more so,
    Btw I’m from Northwesten Ontario,

    Cheers guys,

    Going to be doing some heavy looking into this tour for the next hour or so, I’ll fill you in on if I’ll be joining you all within the next few days.

    Cheers!

    hey kat, double check this just in case i was misinformed, but i asked a kon tiki rep over the phone about bringing a sleeping bag and was told that the company provides them. which is good since we can only bring like one suitcase haha. ps. i haven’t even thought about packing yet :-0 :)

  • 2 Sep 2011 Heather said

    Heather

    Marnis right a sleeping bag is provided for us so no need to pull on out or buy one.

    Nick- i feel the same way! all of a sudden theres a forth page, and its full! sheessh!

    As for packing/ preparing. I have done absolutely nothing! haha i havent even received my package yet with all the info. Havent bought a single thing, or pulled out a suitcase! Probably will do it all the day before my flight leaves! lol

    Oh really? I spoke to one of the reps yesterday and he reminded me to bring a sleeping bag but that’s great if we don’t need one :)

    Hey marni, thanks for the heads up :) I contacted the contiki basement and they said we have to bring our own that only USA tours get them as it was part of their package, but I am so contacting my travel agent today, because that is so cool if they do! Oh are we able to bring like a small on board travel luggage bag or just one suitcase?
    That’s great Brandon! Looking forward to meeting you! And everyone else or corse :)

    I was told we were given the sleeping bags when we got there, this is as of 3 hours ago when I booked.

    You might be on Brandon becuase you are Canada… If they provide for US that would make sense for them to for Canada too… I am just picking up a cheap one… I have a friend who can get me discounts and I plan on ditching it on the way home :] Kat if you find out you can get it included let me know and I will try :]

    My travel agent is useless. Have spoken to 5 different people just to get them to bother to look for my pack… which apparently is already there (nice of them to tell me!!) so I am picking that up today along with anything else I need =D

    It is coming up quick!!!

  • 2 Sep 2011 Roopa said

    Roopa

    Hmm I might give them another call just to check about the sleeping bags, I don’t want to bring one along if it is included.

    Question, what are you all using for luggage, a suitcase or back-pack? I’m contemplating which to use.
