    Nice! So that makes two of us as I couldn´t get any friend to come along with me. I’m travelling alone from Argentina. It’ll be my first time in Europe, so I’m pretty excited about it! Is this your first time in Europe too?

    Yay! Yeah it’s my first time to Europe. I’m from New Zealand but I live in Australia.
    I’m staying at the royal national hotel from the 28th Jan. Then I have 2 days after the tour which I have no plans for yet!

    I’m actually staying at the imperial hotel from the 26th Jan cause I’m also doing the London Explorer tour. Isn’t it weird that we r doing the same tour and staying at different hotels? Haha Just in case…when u said 31th jan u were talking about the day we r departing from Dover to amsterdam right? My itinerary says my trip starts on the 30th jan but that’s actually a full day meant for travellers to arrive in london. The real trip begins next day the 31st when leaving for amsterdam.

    Yes leaves the London contiki baseborn the 31st Jan. That’s why I’m staying at the royal national cos that’s where the base is and I figured other travelers would be staying there.
