    That’s pretty awesome. It’ll be good to meet you all from different countries. Have you traveled with Contiki before?

    Julie and Benjamin (do you like Benjamin or Ben?) – how old are you guys? I’m 23 but I’ll be 24 on the trip.

    Benjamin, and I’m 26. I’ll still be 26 on the trip. And after the trip. I haven’t been on a Contiki tour before, but I have travelled independently to Thailand and New Zealand. Have you guys been overseas before? Is anyone staying in Europe post-tour? I’m thinking of flying Ryanair to Sweden and/or Portugal when we get back to London.

    I’ve been to Venezuela and Dominican Republic before. I have not traveled out to Europe before so this will be a new experience for me. So far, I have no plans to stay in Europe post tour but that can always change (depending on how things go).

    Man, I really want to go to Spain. Quite jealous. Are you backpacking or surfing couches? Katie, I’m travelling alone too. I wonder how many others on the tour will be. I don’t really have a post-tour master plan, but the staggeringly low cost of Ryanair tickets has sure tempted me.

    I think I will be there the 27th? It is not confirmed yet though (ie I haven’t paid for that portion of the trip at all)

    hahaa. yeah ill be stayin at the contiki hotel from the 24th onwards, havent paid for it either tho. i think contiki organises a meeting the night before departure at the contiki basement, we all need to go out that night!!

    That sounds like an awesome idea. I will have to let you guys know more once my flights are booked. Hopefully we’ll start talking with some more people coming on this trip soon enough. I know it’s 6 months away but I’m still looking forward to it.

    We must! Julie, how long are you staying in Europe afterwards? Being generally ignorant about international travel, I didn’t know we had to buy a return ticket to be let in facepalms. I haven’t organised flights yet, but I’m thinking I’ll tack a week or two onto the end of the tour to allow for any spontaneous travel plans. As Australians we don’t need a visa to move around the Schengen Area within a 90-day limit, right?
