    Thanks for all the suggestions, but after browsing through two used bookstore and a big retailer bookstore, I could not find either one of those books that yall suggested (i did find the frommer’s germany but did not want to pay $22 bucks for only one city i was going to visit on our trip). I did happen to stumble upon a used 2005 edition of the “Eyewitness Travel Berlin” for only $7.50 and was pretty pumped to start sight seeing right away once getting off the plane. Sure wish i could have gotten an extra day to spend in berlin.

    Did anyone get the exact location of the hotel we will be staying at our first day? Hopefully it will be right in the heart of the city. For my last tour I was kinda of disappointed where our hotels were located at but noticed that in the 2008/09 contiki catalog they did state that the hotels we will be staying at will be more centrally located to the city.

    3 months and counting till I’m sitting on a 13.5 hour flight to eastern europe. W00t w00t.

    Thanks for posting that Pharmanda. Looks like one of the better hotels Contiki has to offer.

    I’m wondering where are all the Aussies and Kiwi’s and others? Is this just going to be a tour full of Americans & Canadians? Not that that’s a bad thing… Anyways I cant wait for this tour to start. 2½ months left!! =)

    On my last trip’s forum, there were only a handful of Canadians and Americans replying on the forums, but when we met up with the whole tour group we found that almost half the tour was filled with our folks from the land down under. It’ll be a safe bet to know that there will definetly be a group of aussies and kiwis tagging along on our trip.

    Hey Melissa, good to see another person join this tour. I’m pretty sure this tour is NOT cancelled. This is a guaranteed departure tour isn’t it? The tour on the 2nd to 14th of May was cancelled, and I was one of the unfortunate ones who got affected and had to rescheduel for another date. I see that you’ve created a group for the may 29th-june 11th. Are you switching dates?

    yeah, i’m guessing that it’s just full maybe? i thought it was weird that it was ‘cancelled’. hmmm.

    but yeah, i’m all set up for the 29th-11th tour now.

    weird. i wonder why i was told i couldn’t book this tour then? that sucks.

    Okay, looks like this trip is full from another posting somewhere else, but where are the rest of you traveling buddies on this post forum? Don’t be shy now. Just drop us a line and let us know who you are and where you’ll be traveling from. Wink<!--graemlin:;)-->

    By the way has anyone received their travel documents yet? Hopefully they’ve overbooked us in berlin and reserved us a place closer to the city… fingers crossed. Is anyone up for hitting up the night scene in berlin at a jazz club cafe the first night there? I know i’ll have serious jet lag but i got to make the most of my trip there.

    Hi all.. add 1 aussy to the list!.. from what i can see you so far there is no other Australians on the tour! but generally on contiki 1/2 of the ppl are north americans and the other 1/2 are aussies! so hopefully i wont be the only lad from down under!!
    See you all soon. I have joined up to the face book group so I guess well chat in there!!
    Cheers
