    Eya Melissa where are you from? Nice to know it’s not just me going solo!

    I’m from Houston,Texas! and you better believe i will be bringing my cowgirl boots! (actually maybe not! ahaha)
    But yeah, I’m under the impression that a lot of people go solo, so no worries! I am sure we will have an awesome time! Also, I totally stalked this discussion wall and it seems that you are a contiki veteran, any advice for the newbies?

    Pack only what you need shop during the trip! The one thing that pissed me off was the number of people that cheated on there…:( another thing every time we get to a new city we are given a map plus a sort of orientation to write on that map POI’s PAY ATTENTION during this time…

    Hi! I’m thinking of doing this trip. I’m a bit nervous because I’ll be on my own (first time solo!) I’m 23 from NZ.
    Anyone else doing it alone? x

    “Heaps!” of people are going it alone dont worry about it, I know it will just take a day or two to become un-shy…

    awesome! Anyone spending some time in Amsterdam beforehand?

    Helk yes a good number of folks have added 1-2 days in my opinion it’s well worth it—- atleast then we can all get a head start on fighting the dreaded jetlag!

    Hey Monica, that sounds rad! I’m in London for the wedding, gonna bus/train to Amsterdam. I haven’t booked the tour yet, just sussing it out first. Do you know where you’re going to stay in Amsterdam? Bruges looks amazing, friends have loved it there. so exciting!

    Hey em and monica, im going solo too!
    question for anyone – do we have to book the excursions before hand?
    and is it really neccessary to bring a phone? i have an iphone so i can use it to get on the internet, but should i get international access as well??

    21 days to go… spring break next week… nice

    melissa.. there will be plenty of internet cafes too… otherwise international data can cost quite a bit if you don’t have a plan or whatever

  • 13 Apr 2011 LuisMa said

    LuisMa

    Not yet… I’ll start packing 2 days before leaving…

    My flight out is in 6 days, no sign of any packing yet :P I usually leave it to a frantic run around hours before my flight no matter how much I try to plan ahead.. :/
