    I’m all paid up for thhe trip on my end. not exactly sure how many days i’ve got left until I leave the Great White North. I’ll start my coutdown clock when i go to work for 14 consecutive night shifts before I depart.
    On the bright side winter is pretty much over. bye-bye ice, hello mud! Days are finally getting longer and warmer.

    In aticipation for the trip i’ve been watching movies set in the UK. Must have watched Braveheart 5 times allready!

    how long did it take for your travel documents to arrive? I’m still waiting on mine :(

    I was so excited when I saw them I actually squealed! I don’t know how long they took to arrive. I had to ring up to ask them to send both my sets of docs at the same time (I’m going on 2 tours) and that was only about 2 or 3 weeks ago. They girl I spoke with said she would send the request through right away so I could get them ASAP.

    From when I booked the tour it took a couple of months to get mine but like Abby I’m going on other tours so I had to get them early. Have you booked thru a travel agent Patrice? Maybe ask them or call Contiki?.
    Good on you Greg! :)
    Nathan I’ve got 23 hours til my first international flight… not sure how many to my flight to London, too many to count I think!

    Have an awesome time Louise! You’ll be counting down the minutes in no time!! :)

    I leave on May 28th so they sent the docs pretty early! I think I read somewhere on the website they usually arrive around three weeks or so before you depart. Hopefully someone else at the travel agent will be able to help you out :) After this tour I have like 10 days in London then I’m going on the London to Athens + Greek Island Hopping tour!

    I’m looking forward to stonehenge, the rolling hills of the highlands, the vivid greens of ireland. And I cannot forget about the late nights and early mornings! And all the memories made.
