    We havent finalised our plans as yet – but probably will be in London before the tour – def. the night before! Are you going a couple of days early?

    We will be finishing the tour in Paris – we are going to spend a couple of extra days there.

    What are your plans?

    HI stacey, Im from Sydney.I’m really excited that Im doing this… I paid in full today which was kinda scary cus just I watched my bank balance just fade away right before my eyes.It was really sad. lol. But yeh im getting a little scared now which i guess is normal for someone who’s never been overseas before. Have you?

  • 29 Jun 2008 Stace8 said


    Yeah i am hearing you i am really excited but nervious as well, i have been overseas before i have been to the USA but i did that with my mum and i did a New Zealand Contiki with my best friend and that was awesome but i have never been anywhere on my own so i feel your nerviousness LOL! i can relate to the bank blance as well but just think it will be a great experience and well worth the money!

    Hello, everyone. The missus and I are booked on this trip as of today, and we’re excited. This is our first Contiki trip. My travels outside North America have been limited to Egypt, UAE, and Bahrain. The missus is much more travelled than I: New Zealand, Thailand, South America, a few Eupropean countries.

    We’re native Californians (met in San Francisco), but have lived in Austin, Texas the last two years. We’re both in our early 30’s, fwiw.
