    I’m not too sure it depends when I finish work!!

    What about you?

    Are you looking forward to the trip?


  • 23 Oct 2011 Elizabeth said


    I’m flying out on the 24th, so I’ll be there the day before the tour. Staying over at the hotel Contiki has the night before.

    Yeah I’m looking forward to it! Kind of scared though. I’m glad I’ve met someone else that’s going! What about yourself?

    Yeah I think i’m going to book into the hotel the night before atleast so will see you then :)

    Yeah i’m the same quite excited for it!1

    Whats your plans for after the tour? Are you going to travel somemore?

    If you are there the day before we should tour around Sydney, i think i land in the morning. I have my flight booked to head home after the tour to be home for Christmas. What about you?

    Hey guys! Im booked on the tour with you.. Arriving in Sydney Friday morning @8AM.Is there any particular places or things you want to see in Sydney? I thought about taking a City-Sightseeing Bus tour ( Ive taken several before and Its a great way to see lots of stuff in a short period of time.

    I know we’re tentatively all planning on meeting up for dinner and drinks or something Saturday night but we haven’t set anything definite yet..

    Looking forward to meeting all of you!

    Ben – When do you leave for New Zealand?

    Hey Marek!!

    Im not too sure when I arrive in Sydney I haven’t booked anything so far but this sightseeing bus sounds good!!

    Well the contiki meeting is at 5pm on the Saturday so we could organise something for after that if everyone’s up for it? There’s lots of pubs and clubs in Kings Cross we could go to.

    Not long to go guys :)

    Hellooooo everyone! Myself and my friend Inna are both on this tour and we’d love to connect here on contiki and/or on facebook before the tour starts!
    We’re already in Sydney (anyone wanna meet up?) and it’s cold and rainy at the moment. No beach time yet, but we’re really loooking forward to starting the contiki tour! :)
    Nice to meet all of you!
