    I have just booked this one!! I’m so scared! But excited :) Sarah have you booked or are you still thinking about it?

  • 19 Jan 2012 Sarah said

    Sarah

    I’ve booked already :) And just organised flights today!! So excited, but I’m also a little scared.. I’ve never left the country before!!

    I’ve only ever been to Indonesia a couple of times, nothing this far by myself! who are you flying with? I’m really worrying about traveling all that way alone and then trying to get to my hotel! :(

    Sarah

    Yeah, I’m a bit worried about that too, but I think once we actually get to it the excitement will outweigh anything else :) it’s going to be an amazing trip! I’ve booked through Qantas (fingers crossed there’s no issues with them in June!) and arrive in London the day before the tour starts :) how about you?

    are you doing the contiki by yourself or with friends? I’ve booked with Emirates and I’ll be there on the 23rd! Where are you staying the night before the tour starts? And are you just doing Mykonos for the Greek Islands or are you going to do the island hopping? So many questions! I’m so excited :)

    Sarah

    I’m doing it with 2 girlfriends :) We were looking at Emirates, but Qantas just worked out better since we’ve now decided to do couple of weeks extra in Europe and a month in America after the contiki :D

    We’re just going to stay at the Royal National Hotel the night before, it’ll be easier since that’s where we meet up with everyone the morning the tour starts! But we arrive in London at 5.30am on the 23rd! :o haha and I’m doing the Greek Island Cruising option, how about you? :)

    Are you guys flying roundtrip from London…. or ending the trip in Amsterdam? Trying to decide how I want to book my flights/add extra days…

  • 31 Jan 2012 Sarah said

    Sarah

    YAY that’s great, someone else on our tour! I’ll be returning to London and ending the Contiki there, but then traveling for about a month after with a friend :D I think it’s easier and cheaper to book return flights to London and end the trip there :)

    I arrive in London on the 23rd, at like 7pm. So I’ve booked a room at the royal national for that one night. ill be returning back to london after contiki! i think sarah is right, its usually a bit cheaper to travel from london. my boyfriend is meeting me there on the day that we arrive back, and ill be travelling with him for a month. are you going by yourself lindsay?

    Hey, so I booked my flights last night! Will be arriving in London around 10AM on June 23rd….and reserving 3 extra nights at the end of the trip to play in London a little longer, departing Monday, July 30.

    LW00DScontiki

    Oops, had to book 1 extra night with Contiki and 3 consecutive nights with the Royal National separately bc the Olympics will be taking place then. Hope I make new friends to ride out the weekend with me! :)

    I’m from Perth, I’m starting to think everyone on this tour will pretty much be Australia… haha. Although the tour is fully booked now and there aren’t that many people on the discussion talking about it, where are the other 46 people on this tour!??
