    Hey, I’ve just booked this tour. Where are you from?

    Joseph

    I’m going too!

    Hey, I’m from Sydney, Australia. How about you guys?

  • 15 Jan 2012 Joseph said

    Joseph

    Oh nice, I have an old friend down there. I’m from Los Angeles, California. (Technically Redondo Beach, but I’ll keep it simple.)

    I’m from a place just outside of London :) are you guys ending in Helsinki or Stockholm?

  • 15 Jan 2012 Joseph said

    Joseph

    I’ll be ending in Stockholm. I really wanted to go over to Helsinki, but if my trip is any longer, I’ll be dropped from my classes back home :(

    So what made you guys choose Scandinavia?

  • 18 Jan 2012 LucyHx said

    LucyHx

    Oh right, I’m hending in Helsinki. I’ve always wanted to go to Sweden so I thought I’d do the rest of Scandinavia too :) You?
    Are you starting in Berlin?

  • 18 Jan 2012 Joseph said

    Joseph

    Sounds good :) My ancestry hails from Norway, so I thought it’d be a good way to see the land of my people. Plus I’ve had a sudden fascination with Vikings lately.

    Yep, I’ll be starting out in Berlin.

    Hey, I’ll be starting in Copenhagen because I’m visiting a friend there first and then ending in Stockholm. So many reasons to go to Scandinavia. Have wanted to go for ages (from watching the Olympics and Eurovison – don’t judge me – when i was younger) :) :) Currently most excited about going to Legoland in Denmark. But the polar plunge sounds sooo awesome too

    Will be great to meet you guys :)

    Agreed! I can’t wait to meet all of my tripmates. I think we’re going to have a lot of fun together.

    Almost all of my favorite bands come from Scandinavia too, so I’m excited about that.

    I may stay an extra night in Stockholm, I haven’t decided yet either. It all depends on my school schedule, which I wont know until the end of March. I’ll look into it tonight, see if I can coordinate something…

    Have you been to Legoland in the United States?

    Joseph

    I finally got an answer from my school rep. I won’t be able to spend an extra night in Stockholm :(

    Hey guys!! I haven’t booked just yet but am planning on booking this week to do this one and the Russia part as well!!! I’m Jen and live about 2 and a half hours out of Melbourne Australia!! Can’t wait for this contiki to start!! Have wanted to go to Scandinavia for ages!!! :D

    Hi Jen! Welcome to the forum. Are you going to be starting out in Berlin as well?

  • 30 Jan 2012 Jen_au said

    Jen_au

    Hey Joseph!! Yep I’m starting in Berlin!! I went there on Contiki just over 12 months ago but feel like I missed so many things so will be trying to cram some sightseeing in before and after the tour (as I finish in Berlin too)! Hoping to arrive in Berlin on the 10th so will see how jetlag hits me first lol!! :) When are you heading over?!? Is this going to be your first adventure over to Europe?!?!

  • 30 Jan 2012 Joseph said

    Joseph

    Excellent :) I’ll be arriving in Berlin the morning of the 11th. This is my first tour with Contiki, but I’ve been to Europe before, back in 2008. So far I’ve traveled through England, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, France, South Korea, Turks and Caicos, Mexico, and Kauai. I have a feeling Scandinavia is going to be my most memorable trip!

    Hey guys, that’s fair enough, I found an awesome hostel at Stockholm airport – in an old plane. Soooo cool :)
    Haven’t been to america yet but the Danish Legoland is the original so a good place to start. I really want to get to Disneyland in LA eventually. Btw Welcome to the forum Jen :)

    Welcome aboard Jen :) Maybe if most of us are starting in Berlin we can meet up on the 11th before the trip starts.
