    Hey i’m hoping to go on my own in 2013 in july/august hopefully, my main worry is going by myself and no one wanted to befriend me haha! I hope to go on the 25 day trip :)

    Hi Lisa! Yes I agree going solo is a bit daunting I’m a box of nerves just thinking about it haha! You wouldn’t consider the European Adventurer for 37 days or are you looking for something shorter?

    i don’t think i have enough money for 37 days i didn’t even realise you could go for 37 days :O i’m practically starting to save now … :( 25 days is what i thought of! have you booked?

    Yea the 37 days is the called the “European Adventurer” – I’ve only just started saving also, and most likely taking a loan from my lovely parents. But my thoughts are if I’m there (all the way from little NZ) I may as well stay for a bit longer and Mykonos and Croatia look amazing on this tour. I haven’t booked yet but plan to within the next couple of days!

    Hey :) Im wanting to travel in July/August next year on one of the european tours but haven’t decided which one yet. Im from Melbourne in Australia and planning to travel alone as well. has anyone previously been on a contiki tour?

    Hey Stacey! I know, sounds like you have a good group for that departure date – I was hoping to leave a little later, but good to know the Adventurer is popular!!

    Hey Adele! New to Contiki but using these forums I have learnt sooooo much!! Any reason why you are wanting to travel later in summer or just preference?

    well i finish my course in late june so that is the earliest I can get away. I have been looking at the European Impressions though because it includes Spain, whereas some of them don’t.

    Hi im 20 from Melbourne and considering doing the late June early July European adventurer. Im also travelling alone and thought it would be good to get to know the people on the trip before we left lol :)
