    I’m so excited. I’m a southie too!!!! I am in the massive group that is going!!! Started off with two then began a big group. Not all of us went to school together and aren’t all the same age but we are all intertwined with each other- don’t worry we are all there for a good time so not like we all gonna be clicky and shit!! We will get sick of each other Hahah. I am flying in on the 1st of June and not back to Perth till August Yayyyyy!!!

    Can’t believe there is so many people from Perth but I bet there is other people around the world who prob have fb etc. Not long to go now. Anyone else doing Spain festivals???

    Yes it’s kinda good!!! I didn’t Have any holidays last year so I have 7 weeks paid leave then taken the rest unpaid. I work for the government so it’s good:)

    We are all flying different times and different airlines. Some of them haven’t booked. After the tour we are all doing different things really. I just really want my savings to grow and it to be contiki time:))))

    I know it is really handy:)
    I know well we booked with Air asia ( being cheap) and they cancelled out flights but they are re booking us onto another flight for no extra cost which is good. We don’t have flights home yet As we weren’t sure when we are coming home but now we do. All together I think flights will cost me about $1800-$1900. Flights are not cheap cause of the Olympics hey!!

  • 2 Feb 2012 Aleisha91 said

    Aleisha91

    aww yer tru hey!! damn air asia haha
    well $1900 is about how much i spent so i think i did good for emirates lol
    so hav u booked ur flight home? lol mine was $2000 return!! is urs just one way? :O
    yer bloody olympics –_’ wish i could see an event though!! :( would totally see gymnastics! :)

    Hey All!
    This is amazing I’m from Perth too!… That’s a lie I’m actually from Warrnambool, Victoria. Was born in Perth though… Well, Margaret River, I just want to fit in ok? haha
    Well looks like I’m the ‘Baby’ of the group, 19, never been outside the country; far too keen.
    I’m flying up on May 31 and staying a week after to say the ol’ ‘waddup’ to Spain. Pamplona festival will be on. Run with some big, angry bulls anyone? ha
