    Yes I am Sharon! I’ve booked the 13th at the moment, may change if it’s not a guaranteed departure, just waiting for them to be released next week! I’m doing Egypt and the Nile before hand on the 28th of April. Can’t wait? Have you booked?? What date/or what date were you thinking of???

    It was really nice when we were there, like late 20’s during the day I would say. It was the start of the season so it wasnt too busy. If you want busy I would leave it another month.

    Hey Leesa! :) I’m booked for may 13th as well! For the ultimate tour :) I’m planning to stay in Europe for about a year after the tour and continue travelling. :) Was thinking of going to Egypt also, but I figured I’ll just book one tour for now and see how that goes and make other arrangements later. I’m super excited!! Are you travelling by yourself or with friends?

  • 16 Sep 2011 *Leesa* said


    Yay Sharon! :) I’m so excited, I’m going to get a two year working visa for the U.K so I can work and continue to travel as well!! I did a contiki of Europe in winter in Dec 08 and it was awesome, Egypt and Greece were both top of my hit list this time around and with the early payment discount I was able to do both and more so i’m pumped!!!

    Awesome! Sounds like you’ve got it all planned out :) I plan to visit as many places as I can, but all depends on what I can afford, so hopefully I wont run out of money to quick haha, but im sure the experience will be worth it! Look forward to meeting ya! Bring on 2012!! :D

    We are going to be working after the tour for a few months to resupply our bank accounts, then getting a van to do the van tour which includes running of the bulls in spain, tomato fest and also oktober fest in munich. This tour goes for around 10 weeks. A really good option, Google it!

    Hey Nathie and Shasta, I’d love to do the festivals next year, was checking out the busabout website as they run little tours for most of them. I just checked out the van tours, looks awesome! I think i’ll just play it by year and see where I end up!

    Courtney, that’s awesome you’re staying on traveling! We’ll have to catch up after your tour!

    Hey everyone! Pretty sure this trip is going to be the best! For all those who are into music festivals I heard it’s a good idea to register for them before you go.

    Also Nathie and Shasta I plan to work for a bit and then continue my travels as well! I’m super excited and looking forward to meeting everyone!
