European Whirl 17 Sept 2012

I know its a little early for this one, but figured the earlier the better to start finding out who else will be on this one!

This will be my first Contiki, as well my first travel alone, and its a big one! So just hoping to meet some people who will also be on it.

Also, if anyone will be staying in London after the tour finishes, whether short or long term as once I finish this tour, ill be getting settled and working in London for up to 2 years. So anyone else staying around there and keen to do alot of travelling around Europe would be good to meet too.

As im doing this all Solo (cant be bothered to wait for mates to get organised), Im doing alot of reading on here to get an idea on what the hell im doing. haha.

Hope to talk to you all soon!

    oh thats just nuts, i wanna do a canyon swing. was going to in queenstown but had issues with my back at the time and didnt wanna really hurt myself. i would like to do the paragliding though that would just be amazing, oh are you gonna do the zorb balling? i did that on the goldy and my god it was awsome! we did hydro though so we were in a pool of water in the ball rolling down the hill hahaha.
    i wanna start getting stuff now too but dont really know what coz swiss alps is gonna be freezing but italy and stuff is gonna be hot. so im torn with how much of each season to take lol.
    and it sucks coz knowing my luck ill take my sexy lil dress for clubbing in berlin and ill prob end up freezing, the dillemmas of being a chick hahaha.

    oh dubai thats cool. i dont mind a stop over i just wanna go somewhere i havent been before so i can explore a little or get a few pics and stuff.
    whats UAE?? :l
    yeah that is rather a big flight isnt it hahah

    I havent done zorbing, might have to do that one time.
    Ah its a tough life for a girl huh.. haha. Ill just need jeans and my sweet jacket.. it is always good for anything, never gets cold. so ill just take that one! haha.

    Yea thats true, thats why i did Dubai, as its completely different to everywhere else. and there is lots of super rich people there as there all like billionaire sheikhs. haha. Ah UAE = United Arab Emirates, as in the country that Dubai is in. haha.

    oh you have to do zorbing, its so fun.
    yes it is quite tough for a chick sometimes :p as long as i can get in the club thats the main thing lol.
    i spose dress code is alot better for a chick though we can wear anything and get in but you boys its pretty strict.
    i wouldnt mind seeing the palm tree islands and the earth island in dubai. dont laugh but i didnt know that was the country lol blushes
    i did the smart thing today and bought in my ipod to work, not so quite today lol.
    got the pretty reckless playing, love it.
