    Hmm, i might just be covered for those injections from travels into Africa – holding thumbs I don’t have to do them again! Thanks for the advice – and welcome to the chat :o)

    Just a thought but how about using names in this chat – might be a little easier!

    Hmm, i had booked into the See Sea hotel – a little out of Patong Beach but just looks so awesome and right on the beach… But it’s not confirmed so can still look at other options, there are a lot of decent looking places and it’s only one night. E-mac, maybe we could even try the Contiki hotel on the first night and share a room to cut costs?

    Very relaxed – don’t mind doing my first night alone at all but if you guys are keen to meet up early, I’ll also be in on that :o)

    Good stuff… Is that “Just” short for “Justin”?

    And then I think that just leaves “Coastal”…

    Well I def think we should all stay at the contiki hotel on the first night of the tour. It’ll be better I reckon as most of the tour may stay there and it’ll be good to get involved with everyone from the get go. That’s what I did on my US contiki and it worked well. Sweet as, this is gonna be epic! I will make a contiki group on fb tonight, that way we can all keep on contact way easier!

    great idea maddy – a couple of us were just chatting on fb, much better than on here :o)

    do you know about availability at the contiki hotel? i would def rather share with someone if possible – the quotes i saw were pretty expensive…

    i’m off to gym now. have a good eve

    Hi guys,

    Nice to meet you all. Sorry for not joining the discussion earlier – only discovered this thread today.

    Very much looking forward to the trip – I hear contiki gets pretty wild and the fact that we have some South Africans on the trip should only add to that!
