Escapade - Party Party Party :)

6 May 2008 Notleonardo said

Hey all,<BR><BR>I just finished doing the Escapade tour (started April 8), and just wanted to let all you guys know it was, by far, the best 25 days of my entire life <img src="" alt="Smiler" width="15" height="15"><!--graemlin::)--><BR><BR>I was fortunate enough to be with an amazing group of people - everyone was friendly, all just there to have fun, and enjoy the experience. You don't have to party all the time if you don't want to (in fact, it's probably best to have a night off every now and then), but even if partying isn't your thing, you will still love this tour. All that matters is that you have the right attitude.<BR><BR>Just make the most of every day, do what suits you, but remember to try and get around to meet everyone. Even if you're travelling with some friends, make sure you try and associate with everyone else on the tour. That way everyone has fun together, and there are no little groups forming. We ran into a couple of other tours where people had formed little cliques, and they didn't seem to be having as much fun as our group. <BR><BR>A lot of the Contiki reps told us they loved the way we were clearly a very together group... these people become like your family! It's only been 3 days, and I'm having serious withdrawl symptoms already... missing everyone and everything <img src="" alt="Wink" width="15" height="15"><!--graemlin:;)--><BR><BR>I just wanted to let you all know that all your excitement and anticipation is going to be wellworth it <img src="" alt="Wink" width="15" height="15"><!--graemlin:;)--> I've made friendships that will last a lifetime, and I really hope you guys get to have the awesome, amazing, experience I was lucky enough to have. <BR><BR>Hopefully you guys are fortunate enough to have Kiralee as your TM and Rich as your driver... they're absolutely amazing...<BR><BR>Oh, if anyone wants any advice on anything, just let me know and I'll try to answer in any way I can. It's still fresh in my mind (well, what I can actually remember, lol), so I'm happy to share any info you might want to hear...<BR><BR>Hope this makes you even more excited <img src="" alt="Wink" width="15" height="15"><!--graemlin:;)-->
