    Hey Lisa, that sounds awesome hope you have a good time!

    I’ve paid for my flights, my passport and for most of my tour :)

    But I’m stuck trying to figure out how I’m going to fit so much in to the week or so that I’m in London lol. Will start looking at the optionals pretty soon!

    Where abouts are you travelling from? How long will you be in London for?

    We are only in London for one night b4 the tour :(. Im spending a few nights in Poland. You going to stonehedge that would be cool! Im from Adelaide, Aust.
    You will be in London for new years? Travelling by yourself?

    Nice to meet another Aussie :) Nice what u doing in Poland?

    Totally forgot about the stone henge until then haha but will definitely go see it.

    I’m going over with my brother but he doesn’t want to do contiki (he wants to backpack on his own) so I’m doing the tour by myself but we are gonna do everything we want to do (including NYE) in London then after that go our seperate ways. How about you?

    Sounds great Tamara…how long will you be in London for? Are you travelling solo or with some mates?

    It’s so cold at the moment only gonna get worse over there haha

    Great work Tamara…how long will you be in London for? Are you travelling alone or with a group? Where abouts are you from?

  • 1 Jun 2012 Tamamarama said


    Traveling with my husband, sister in law and her boyfriend… Staying in London an extra night before the tour kicks off…We’re from NSW – what about you?
    And yeah, not looking forward to the cold early starts… but have been told to wear lighter clothes under the warmer stuff as everything over there is heated and you won’t need bulky clothes once indoors.

    Sorry about the late reply Tamara, that sounds great. Where abouts in NSW are you from? I’m from Newcastle :)
