    Yea we depart Amsterdam for London then London to Miami. I’m not sure of the exact times but we are on British airways

    okay I’m guessing were on the same flight to London then. the only thing I’ve been trying to figure out is the bus drops us off at the airport at 10 am and the flight leaves at 11:40 am, and my travel agent said i should try to get there earlier, so when i called contiki they said if we request the bus to leave an hour earlier they can, and if not we can all just cab together.

    Wow, have fun catching that flight…it’s on the last day, right?
    Okay…so I haven’t actually been thinking about packing properly since the trip is still decently far away…but what the heck? I was just thinking about it…how are we supposed to pack for that length of time in only one suitcase?!

    I’m stressing out too!! don’t mind me if you catch me wearing the same outfit cause i seriously need room for shopping!! the weather is good that time of year in europe so i’m bring shorts, a few casual dresses, tanks n tees. i say that now but i’ll end up bringing my whole closet!!…lol

    Ha, I feel like half of us are going to be wearing the same outfits a couple of times. I know for sure I’ll be wearing the same jeans constantly. I’m not a shorts person, so I have to bring around bulky clothes…though hopefully a pair of leggings will help decrease the bulk.
    But right? I don’t know how NOT to bring along everything.

    Hi Nick (and Kate)! Hey for those staying a few extra days in London at the end of the tour – are you staying at the Contiki hotel or somewhere else?

  • 31 Mar 2012 SabiiO said


    Hi Nick! Hi Kate! Welcome :)
    I’m staying one extra night in London at the end, I booked it with Contiki so I’ll be staying at the same hotel that we stay at when we first arrive.

    Thanks . Which hotel are you booked at . Were booked at the imperial before the tour starts . As for staying after we’re planning on finishing at Amsterdam as we have some relatives there, but will end up in London a few days after though . Can’t wait:-)
