    I’m from Auckland, NZ. The others that I know are coming are from Melbourne and Sydney, and New York.. I hope I got that right. I just hope we get at least one beach day hehe cos last year I didn’t get any tan :-( I haven’t done a huge amount of travelling – am hoping to get a job that will allow me to travel lots down the track a bit. But I’ve been to Australia, (just came back from Ayers Rock for work) Fiji, the States. I am 22 and female by the way. The others who are coming back are in their late 20s/early 30s I think! :-) Clare

    Oh nice im dying to go to NZ atm, im a travel agent so I def have travel envy alot. What work did you do in Ayers Rock? Ive always wanted to go there 2 work to get away from the coast. So you hadnt done the Vietnam Contiki? When do you arrive in to Bangkok? This trip will be amazing, ive seen everyones pics n heard their stories n it will be hectic cant wait. Not too sure about beaches cos its all mainly inland but who knows. Tell me bit more about yourself. xxooo

    dena.der

    A travel agent would be an amazing job!! We get in at about 9:30pm on xmas eve. Thats awesome Dani, where in Brisbane are you from?

  • 21 Sep 2011 Dani said

    Dani

    I live in Slacks Creek, how bout you? Who are you flying with? I haven’t bought flights yet but will probs get around to that in the next few weeks, lol.
    Who else is coming with you? My bf is tagging along as well. We’re a bit older than you – 25 and 27 :) Still party hard – just means the hangovers take longer to get over, hehe

    Im from Jimboomba, and my best friend thats coming with me is from Windaroo. He met a girl on Contiki last year who is from NSW somewhere and she is coming with us aswell. :)
    We are flying with Thai Airlines. Haha I’m sure we will all be able to party hard! We are going to Asia there has to be something to fix the hangovers right? Haha.

  • 21 Sep 2011 Dani said

    Dani

    Can’t wait to meet everyone, we’re going to have so much fun :) Is anyone staying on in the area after the tour ends? We’re thinking of having a few extra nights in Bangkok before we fly home.

  • 21 Sep 2011 Suzie said

    Suzie

    yay more peeps, yeh travel agents have their perks but very tough job. im staying an extra night in Siem Reap after the tour, i get in 3:30pm xmas eve flying with Thai. Not sounding all travel agenty but Dani you better get your flights soon, i couldnt even get a discount with my connections, n i paid $2grand lol
    The only thing 2 fix hangovers, is more drinking! i learnt that in Nam, just stay away from the beer in the mornings thats a no no lol but Vodka mmmmm!

    hell yeh we will have a blast, xmas n nyears eve wooooooooooooooo, so has anyone heard what we will most likely do on xmas night, the first night of tour lol? ;)

    xxoo

  • 21 Sep 2011 dena.der said

    dena.der

    We are flying from Siem Reap back to Bangkok and then going down to Pattaya and staying there for 5 nights :)
    Is vodka everywhere? haha. because I do not drink beer.

  • 21 Sep 2011 Suzie said

    Suzie

    oh wow that will be crazy, well in Nam there wasnt many bottleo’s at all but drinks are like $2 deadset so cheap, so i think in bangkok il just buy some bottles n take them with me cos ive heard in some areas specially in Laos there is like one bar n its literally like a plank of wood with a chair on the side of the road lol yeh i dnt drink beer either but when ur desperate u do anything baha.

    SO have you heard of this thing called tubing?

  • 25 Sep 2011 Dani said

    Dani
