    Sounds like what we’re doing. (Bianca my friend) and I. We’re doing 3 days in Dubai on the way over, then 6 days in London, and 3 days in Athens at the end. I can’t wait it’s getting close now hey?
    What sort of day bag are you guys taking / backpack etc? I wonder if everyones wearing thongs or closed in shoes. I was thinking closed in, because we’ll be doing so much walking! Its hard to know what to take lol.

    I’m going shamelessly tourist-style, with back pack and all haha :p I’m taking some nicer clothes aswell, if we go clubbing or whatever.. I’ve heard thieving can be pretty terrible aswell, so that’s something to consider ..

    Yeah I intend to have my camera around my front/side in a camera bag with a strap and I have a money belt lol – sneakers and backpack too – all for shameless tourist style!

    I was just going to take a small shoulder bag for during the day, and some flat comfy shoes as well as a pair of heels to go out in. I was thinking about a money belt but I probably won’t end up using it! I don’t know idrgulregjerughaerslag

    I am on the same tour I get into london on the 9th around noon but leave the tour the day you all head to Greece. Im going to go to Barcelona for a couple of days. I will have a backpack, flip flops (thongs) and closed toe shoes. I will probably bring small locks for the backpack for when its behind me.

    It’s my first time going overseas by myself as well!

    I never thought about going overseas solo, that’s pretty brave, though I guess as we can see there are lots of people who do especially on Contiki…

    Paid off my tour today yay. How much spending money are you guys taking? My travel agent said 4 k would be a good amount for the 5 weeks that I will be there, on and off tour.

    4K? Wow I was thinking 2K… but I have an American Express Card that I can use overseas if I run out of cash. I suppose if one were to do a lot of the optional extras, lunches, souvenirs, yeah it’d probably be between 2-4K.
