Hey Pete. Do it the trip’s gunna be awesome! And We booked flights ourself and got a decent return.
We’re staying in London for an extra week at the royal national.
Jess good to hear, should be fun. I’ve got no clue what to bring, I’m thinking I’ll buy whatever I still need whilst I’m over there.
Anyway awesome to hear from some new people.
Just over a month to go :-)
Pete did you book? Join us we gona have a blast.
Jess welcome – gona be hard getting winter stuff now but I’m sure there are ski shops around. I’m taking thermals, jeans, and fleece tops mostly and maybe 2 going out outfits.
Gona pack soon so I’ll keep you guys posted on a list.
Pete- like Cam staying in London after also and booked own flights there and return.
Hey Jess- where are you from? Australia? figuring out what to pack is hard as you need warm clothes but I do not want to pack a lot due to weight and size!
Hey all just booked my tour but Im unfortunatly not the same one. I’m going on the european inspiration, 19 days should be good
Might catch up over there beforehand
I called the contiki office to book for more people but our trip is fully booked. Looks like we going to have a full tour.
I’ve created a fan page on facebook for our tour so we can add photo’s etc after the trip and keep in touch. Like the page when you’ll get the chance “European Encounter Contiki 20 Dec 2011” www.facebook.com/EE201211

I’m studying in Paris for a month before the trip, then meeting up with Cam and Steve, then we’ll come to join you all in London :)

hey pete, im from the gold coast, Aus. my friend has been living in London for the past year, so going over to catch up with her and do some travelling. getting there 2 days before the tour and staying in London for a couple of weeks after it finishes. so keen for the holiday.
hey lizzie, that will be awesome getting to do a bit of studying in paris. I’m trying to pick up a bit of french, but i cant pronounce anything right!!
Pete- I’m from Geelong, AUS- you may know it by Torquay, or Bells Beach?
Hannah- I’m sure you’ll pick some up when we’re there :) I’ve been learning it for a while now, so I’m looking forward to finally getting to go over there!
that sounds great studying for a month. Its such a shame I do not know any other language
Its seems that most people are staying at the royal national which is good as we can all hang out at the contiki basement before the trip and after!
It is so close now coming up fast!

So all good!! And leather boots, thermals gloves scarves!! Should be fine!! Not long to go now!! Were so excited!!! Does anyone know if anything special happens on Christmas and new years??
Hi Lizzie studying is Paris sounds amazing!! So jealous! Xxx
Wel I heard there’s christmas markets all over & a christmas wonderland in london. (which I may not make since I only have 1 day in london) it should be awesome though with ice skating and markets. I think its in Hyde park if I remember correctly. I’ll start checking on other stuff soon
