  • 24 Nov 2008 Spinderella said



    Im going on the sep 4 09 tour too.
    i booked last week, never too early, that way i can save all the money.

    Can’t wait til i go, only like 10 months it will fly by.

    budgie, when are you planning to go, i reckon this trip sounds like it’s going to be awesome.

    Hi guys,

    I am looking forward to this trip. This will be my 3rd contiki trip. if you guys haven’t been on one before they are so much fun. I fly out of Australia on the 1st of September and I cannot wait. I have 2 days in London before the tour. How about you guys??

    I have never been on Contiki trip, been wanting to go on one for ages!!!

    I havent booked my flights yet, im doing that on Saturday, im still trying to work out what else i want to do.

    I hope that time does fly by, 10 months seems so far away.

    Hey all, I’m booked on this one too, this should be great. This is my first trip overseas so not sure how much $$ I’ll need, hopeful to get some goss from the experienced travellers. Will be in London a few days before it starts so better get there before all the booze goes ;D

    Wow Explorer, South Korea? You’ll have to tell us all about it!

    korean airlines threw in an overnight stop for us for free, so yeah that should be interesting indeed.

    Yeah, in Adelaide – nothing wrong with a free night! This will certainly be an experience for me.

    sounds like a heap of aussies partying, on a bus seeing sights.

    it seems many people do this on contiki

  • 25 Nov 2008 WesternAllstar said


    Nothing wrong with a bunch of Aussies – although wasn’t there a news story a little while ago that we were the worst tourists??

    I’m not going alone, am going with Carlz so I better be careful what I say ;D

    sure is, the worst thing about the trip is that we are only in munich for 1 night!!!!!

  • 30 Nov 2008 budgie said


    Bring it on, Drinking and dancing my favorite past time. Only having 1 night, means that we have to make the most of it. I’m sure that can be arranged…
