    Excited! Hopefully a few more people can pop up here and say g’day.
    I’m Nick, I’m 27 from Melbourne. I’m headed to London on the 26th, landing 27th in the morning I believe. I’m fortunate that my brother and his girlfriend live in London so will get collected from the airport.
    As we all probably know, London is going to be jam packed! given that the opening ceremony is on the 27th for the Olympics!
    I’ve got two nights at Royal National before the tour commences, then after the tour I’m flying to Dubrovnik for a seven day top deck camping tour from there to budapest. After that I’m flying to Ibiza to spend a weekend with my brother and his gf, then unfortunately after 35 days of hard at it Euro living, I’m headed back home to reality!

    So nice to see i’ve had some responses! I’m so excited! I’m Ashlee, I’m 24 and from Melbourne also. Myself and a friend are flying out on the 23rd, arriving in London on the 24th and staying with friends until the Contiki starts.
    After the Contiki we’re staying in Paris for 2 nights, then off to Greece for a week. We’re heading to Turkey after that to do a Sail Turkey Busabout. After that my friend leaves and I’m just going to see where the wind takes me.
    I’ve just received my UK visa so I’m planning on moving to London after all my travels.

    Awesome stuff. Sailing would be awesome, I wanted to do it instead of my top deck camping but I couldn’t get the dates right and with work, I wasn’t allowed to keep extending. 35 days was enough according to them!
    Where abouts from Melbourne are you?

    I’m hoping to do a sail Croatia at some stage as well. That’s a bit annoying about your work, 35 days is not nearly enough to travel Europe! I’m from the South East, Berwick. You?

    Yeah. Being my first time overseas its probably enough. I’m going to be ruined after this I’m sure of it. In the space of 35 days I reckon 3 of them are going to provide me with a bit of rest! The rest will be chaotic!
    I’m from Ringwood.

    That’s fair enough. There’s no stopping on these holidays and it’ll probably take us about a week of sleep to catch up!

    Yeah, I arrive back in Australia at 8:45pm and my boss wants me at work the next day. Let’s see how that eventuates!
    You’ve been to Europe before I’m guessing?

    I’m arriving on the 26th with two days to kick around before we leave. I’m so excited, I’ve been to the UK before but not Europe. Also, about 10 days into the trip it’s my birthday! (this is my 30th present to myself)

    Anymore people out there heading on this tour?

    I’ll arrive in London on the 18th and jet directly to Frankfurt, catch the F1 race in Hockenheim, then back to LHR, and over to Barcelona for a few days. Then back to London for a couple of days before the tour starts!
    After the tour, I’ll find my way to NYC for a further week, then the nightmare 30hours of flying/transit back to Perth (sigh….)!
