    Hey, I’m Mike and I’m traveling with Megan (mentioned above). We were told that we would be arriving at the Royal National between 10-3, and im also told that the whole orientation will be held around 7 that night (correct me if im wrong). so if you all wanna get together beforehand that would be sweet!

    I think check in is at 2pm? But you can always just hang out at the basement beforehand, im sure it will be fine to check in early.

    Renee I think I arrive about the same time… seems if check in isn’t until 2pm we may have to take our luggage down to the basement so I will probably run into you pretty quick :]

    Hey guys! My name is Ancy and I’m traveling with two of my friends, Joan and Joan (they have the same name!) We’re from New York. We’ll be coming in on the 19th and staying at the Imperial Hotel, which isn’t far from Royal National/Contiki Basement. We’re actually staying in Paris after the tour and leaving back home from there on October 1st. I was reading the Contiki travel guide and it says you can buy a sleeping bag from the Basement – when will we actually be using it? Anyway, we’re all excited to meet everyone!!!

    Hello everyone! nice to ‘meet’ you all.

    Mike- I was told the same thing. That the meeting was held on the 18th when i arrive.

    Since this seems like a reoccurring theme, feel free to add me as well.
