    I’m up for brisk walking, but running is out of the question.

    If only I knew they supplied them I wouldn’t have gone and bought my own sleeping bag 2 weeks ago.

    I’m not really much of a runner. Does anyone know if any of the places we are staying at have gyms? I’ll most likely bring some gear if that’s the case. Provided I’m not too hung over of course. :)

    The white water rafting looks awesome. I reckon I’ll be up for that.

    Michael – I have so items I got from a trainer that we can do if there is no gym. If you want, we can do them together :D

    You’re bringing some weights?! Surely your luggage allowance wouldn’t allow for it

    I be interested in the gym too.

    No it all uses body weight…for example, pushups, burpees, situps, squats, etc

    Hey Guys!!

    My name is Jason and looks like i’ll be joining you guys on this trip! Im 26 and from Sydney, Australia.

    Seeing as its about a month away, I’m actually starting to get pretty excited now!! I’m actually one of those people who don’t really get excited until the night before. But having a read through this thread, I CANT WAIT!! Im looking forward to meeting you all and sharing many laughs!

    I’ll be in London from the 24th of April staying in the hotel next to (or above, not sure which) the Contiki place.

    Ohh… And I’m pretty sure I’ll be giving the morning run a miss most days. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll give it a go. But I’ve accepted the fact that I’ll more than likely be hungover most of the mornings (if not STILL drunk). The only way I’ll get up for a run is if it’s to go get more alcohol… haha! Maybe a morning walk/stroll isn’t out of the question though…

    See y’all soon!!!

    Hahahaha. We may just end up being the fittest Contiki group in Europe at the time.

    Welcome to the forum Jase.

    Welcome to the forum Jase.

    Vanessa and I will be getting into London on the 27th and will be exploring that day. Maybe we’ll run into you early – we will be staying at the hotel contiki has booked for us for the first night.

    At the campsite, one Contiki group will be doing normal Contiki things like puking in hedges and bolting out of strangers’ rooms wrapped in a bed sheet, and our group will be lifting dumbbells and doing cartwheels in the dark.

    Jason, I’ll see you on the hungover-stroll circuit.

    Cody, are you staying at the Royal National Hotel? What time are you getting in on the 27th? Katie and I are meeting up at around 9:30am at the Contiki basement on the 27th and touring around London. You can meet up with us then if you will be there at that time :)

    I was going to try to bring a mix of clothing – it looks like temperature wise (degree) it should be about the same as it is in Canada

    Hey crew,

    I’m flying out to London first light tomorrow morning provided the fog holds off. I’ll be around London and other parts of the UK for 2.5 weeks and should be back in London the 27th or 28th. I’m happy to meet up beforehand and cruise around London if anyone’s up for it. Just flick me a PM. I’ll probably be able to show you some cools spots that I’ve been around. :)

    Hope you’ve all had a great Easter break.

    Michael

    EXCITED for this adventure to begin!! Very close! Dress clothes anyone!? opinions on this?!?!

    Also I am arriving in London on the 27th later that night around 10 at the Royal National! So I will be able to sight see the entire day of the 28th. Does this fit when you guys will be there?!?!

    I noticed when you check in online, there is a countdown it gives you. Mine is 14 days. I noticed some of yours were 12 days?! Is there possibly 2 different departure dates? I arrive in London the 27th at night and have unitl 6 am on the 29th to check in with the contiki basement. We then depart on the 29th at 6:45. Is this what yours is saying? Little confused.
