    I’m going on this tour!! By myself which will be a bit scary so would love to know who else is going on it :)

  • 6 Dec 2011 Jamie said

    Jamie

    Oh yay! Someone else is on this tour too! Are you planning on getting to London early too Elle, and what ae your plans after the contiki? We are going Ibiza and Greek island hopping! :)

  • 7 Dec 2011 Elle said

    Elle

    I’ll be in London 1 day before and 2 days after the tour.. Couldn’t get any longer off work unfortunately!! Sooo jealous you’re going to the Greek Islands!! Will be be in London before? :)

    Jamie

    Will be in London the two days before the tour.. Are you staying at the royal national hotel?

  • 7 Dec 2011 Elle said

    Elle

    I’m staying at the imperial which is apparently about 50m away from the royal national.. i could have stayed at the royal national but i wouldn’t have been able to get a room to myself.. wanted to be close by though because according to a travel agent i spoke to, the tour will probably leave at 6.30/7am!!

  • 8 Dec 2011 Jamie said

    Jamie

    Yeah I’m sure I’ll be at one of those too

  • 9 Dec 2011 Elle said

    Elle

  • 9 Dec 2011 Jamie said

    Jamie

    Elle

    I went to America 3 or 4 years ago.. That was with family though, so I think this will be a lot more wild :P i’m so excited already, wish it wasn’t 6 months away!!

  • 9 Dec 2011 Jamie said

    Jamie

    I know I’m driving everyone nuts with my excitement!!! Well I’m hitting la and Vegas as part of this trip but yeah sounds like we’re both overdue for an overseas trip!!

  • 9 Dec 2011 Elle said

    Elle

    Haha oh god me too! My friends are sick of it already.. Mostly because they wish they could afford to go :P Maybe ill have to share my excitement with you haha.. Add me to FB if you like, the link is on my profile :)

  • 9 Dec 2011 Jamie said

    Jamie

    No worries, done! Hopefully we’ll have more buddies on our trip soon too! Can’t wait to meet! We should def catch up on the day before our trip in London :)

  • 10 Dec 2011 Elle said

    Elle

    yeah would be awesome if we could know a few more people before.. and i would love to catch up beforehand, will make going by myself seem a lot less scary :P did you say you were coming with 2 friends? both girls?

  • 10 Dec 2011 Jamie said

    Jamie

    Well it’s me and my girl friend Joanna, and she is bringing her cousin mark along so another girl and a dude

    Hey! I booked for this trip too, it definitely looks like I will be the only non-Australian :P 6 months to gooooo!!!!

  • 2 Jan 2012 Jamie said

    Jamie

    Hi there Marco! :) don’t worry, I’m sure there will be more people from around the world on our trip…. But contiki’s are generally full of mostly Aussies… But don’t worry, we’re a fun bunch! You’ll end up wanting to come to Australia after the trip! 180 days to go!

    Where are you from??

  • 4 Jan 2012 mag_marco said

    mag_marco

    Im sure there will be plenty ppl from all over :D so exciting!! Ahhh Australia is definitely on my wishlist after this contiki..

    Im from Cape Town, South Africa. doing the tour with my girlfriend, Megan, whom im still trying to teach how to use this site :P So far it looks like we will be staying 2 nights at the royal national hotel in london before the tour starts! Btw, is your check-in option also tripping out on this site or is it still to early to check-in?

  • 7 Jan 2012 Jamie said

    Jamie

    That is pretty cool! That makes 6 of us so far…. I had trouble with the check in too. It wouldnt find me or my name under the booking number… I just came back and tried it again a few weeks later and it worked.

    Are you guys staying on in Europe after the tour?

  • 11 Jan 2012 Elle said

    Elle

    yay more people :) my travel agent said the tour will probably be about 40 aussies/new zealanders with the other 10 being from south africa/ canada/ america… and yay now we know more people :)
