Hey! Who's booked for this trip? My brother and I booked it and wanted to see who else was in. We're from Saskatchewan, Canada. I'm 22 and my brother is 23. =)

    Yeah ive got a bit of cash money converted already but I think mot of my spending will be on the plastic.

    Erica and I are staying at the Royal National for a couple of days beforehand, would love to catch up with y’all the night before :)

    I wish I could meet everyone a bit beforehand! That’d be great. But I’m doing a week in Ireland and don’t get back into London until 10pm the night before OUR tour starts! If you guys are rocking it out somewhere leave me a note on my door and I’ll come find you guys haha So, 3 days until I fly to Ireland! So I’ve already started packing. They don’t seem to want us to take much.. I’m freaking out!

    Looks like there is a place called the London Pub right out front of the Royal National if we wanted to go there. We have tour meeting the night before right? So we can just cruise there afterwards if we want, I’m sure our tour manager will know the best places to go anyway :)

    Yeah at 6pm the night before the tour we have a meeting at the Contiki Basement, it’s not compulsory as far as i know but I guess it’d be a good idea. There’s more info here: :) By the looks of it we leave at 6.45am the morning after so it might have to be an early-ish one for me!
