    Our travel agent booked it for us! Did you want me to get its proper name? I might even have more contact details for it in my travel itinerary too. We did all of it through a travel agent, made our lives soooooo much easier!!

  • 16 Mar 2012 Isla said


    Oh and my name is Isla and my friend that is coming with is named Krystal. I only just realized my name is called “explorer1352101” on here lol!

  • 17 Mar 2012 liinzb said


    haha! yeah that would be great if you could! I think i might call my travel agent on monday and see if she can book me there for the night before.
    Im Lindsay by the way :) looking forward to meeting you both!! Any destination in particular your really excited to visit on the tour?

  • 19 Mar 2012 Isla said


    So I looked it up – it’s called the Royal National Hotel and we’re staying there the day before the tour starts and the day after the tour ends (our travel agent said we’d probably be exhausted and want to just crash at a familiar place!) It’s $75 per night.
    I’m just looking forward to all of it really! Don’t have a specific thing I’m most looking forward to, just to enjoy myself and see everything possible! You? How old are you? And are you travelling alone or with friends?

    Oh great! Thanks so much!! I hope that there is still some rooms available! Yeah same, Im just so excited to be seeing parts of the world and the whole experience. Do you guys have to come back at a certain time for work or anything? I have my british passport so i want to stay for alot longer. Im 20.. turning 21 in August which im planning on spending in the Greek Islands :)
    Travelling alone so im abit nervous but my friend went alone and she said she was glad she did and had the best time so im not too worried haha. How old are you guys?

  • 24 Mar 2012 Isla said


    Yeah we have return flights booked home – our trip is only for a bit over 6 weeks because my friend has placement :). That sounds amazing that you’re staying there so much longer, I’m sure you’ll love it!! We’re both 20 but Krystal my friend will be turning 21 when we’re in the Greek islands for our last week!!! Exciting stuff! I literally cannot wait! Yeah I’m sure it will be a great trip whether you’re alone or not :) x
