Hey, i'm wondering if anybody else is booked on the Island Hopping West leaving the 26th of Jan. I'll be travelling by myself and thinking about booking the tour this week.
Would be good to see if anyone else on here is also locked in... =)

    Hey, Im also flying in to Phuket on the 25th n staying at the hotel which contiki departs from… I’ll b staying in Phuket after for a couple of more days which a friend is joining me for and then heading to Bangkok.

  • 26 Nov 2012 Violeta said

    Violeta

    well i did the la to bay then the wild western and it was awesome !! you should look into

  • 26 Nov 2012 Chrissy14 said

    Violeta i’m often in St Kilda on a sunday. Otherwise down there a bit for coffees etc. I also did La to the Bay back in 09 and that was my first one that i did by myself. Leah just try not to stress about the whole “travelling solo” part. Your in a group and you become pretty close very quickly! Its the best way travelling by yourself coz you just do what you want to do.
    I’m on facebook… Its Chrissy Urmston. Tried looking for you guys but it was hard to pick the right person! lol
