    yup we’re leaving the 3rd, getting there early morning the 4th, like 7am-ish. We’re staying in the same hotel the group is meeting up in and staying over on the 6th. So an extra day basically on monday. Where are you staying?

    hit me up on facebook if you have it, easier to talk then this forum. I PM’d you my name

    Eeker<!--graemlin::eek:--> that would be soo weird if we are all from Canada… but i bet we won’t be and there will be people from Australia. i finished school on Wednesday… and now i am getting even more excited. i am arriving on the 2nd in London but late. i am going to look around London on the 3rd we should meet up and look around together. i want to take one of those double decker bus tour. Where r you staying? Eeker<!--graemlin::eek:-->

  • 9 Apr 2009 adblink said


    hey cait. wow, someone else whos NOT going on the 7th, lol

    We’re arriving pretty early Monday the 4th, so a day and a half before the group actually “meets”. And we’re staying in the hotel our actual tour group is staying in for the first night (tues) so thats good.

    ya same van, would love to look into those double decker bus tours.

    We’re staying at the Royal National Hotel, I do believe that this is the one Contiki sets you up with. I’m getting so excited, I can’t stop thinking about it. Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->
    We arrive around 3 or so on May 3 so we have a couple of days to hang around and do seom sight seeing. We’re looking at going to the London Eye and doing a harbour tour or a double decker bus tour. They do have a pretty good selection of tours to look at so we’ll have to see.
    Are any of you staying in London after the tours over? We head back to London for an extra day then head back home Frowner<!--graemlin::(-->

  • 11 Apr 2009 adblink said


    ya I should of looked into staying a day or so later after the trip, but unfortunately we didn’t.

    Did you guys already figure out how your getting from the airport to the hotel?

  • 14 Apr 2009 Cait said


    We arrive at the Gatwick airport which is outside of London and a little ways away from actual London. We can take the tube from the airport though, which makes the trip 45 minutes shorter. Taking a taxi would be too much and too long. haha
