    I changed my trip from Egypt to Greek islands ! Thought I was stupid to miss out on such an amazing place… For partying…beach…tanning…men..etc :p haha. So excited to leave now !! 45 days till I leave Australia ! Woo. Lets all do something to get to know each other and hang out before the trip starts !?
    Find me on Facebook guys : Stephanie tolan . By the way do you guys know if we get a complimentary trip back to London after we finish in Amsterdam ?

    That’s great news Steph, most people have chosen the Egypt one so good to see a few that will be with me the whole time.

    Definitely the cosmopolitan :) Stephanie is sad to see you switch to the Greek Islands :( . It’s 46 days till I leave for Madrid as well. Definitely counting down the days now. I wish I hade more time after the tour to hang out with you guys. I’m staying just the one night in London after the tour so if anyone else is doing the same we could all go out for drinks for the last time.

    Hey guys, i was just browsing through old discussions and came across a very helpful one!!

    type in “Here’s some tips for the Ultimate European tour” in the discussion section

    :) :)

    Read the whole thing rosa and its much what I expected, not incredibly excited about paying for the loo and I hope our tour has an even number of girls and boys though I guess less boys is less drama can’t believe we have to tip the driver? 2euro a day is 90 euro ! Isn’t six grand off us each enough.

    Loving the idea of cocktails on the beach in the Greek islands girls. Is a definite must. I’m staying on another day in Amsterdam after the tour if anyone is doing the same? Totally agree with you Effy, you would think it would be enough :)

    Does anybody know if we’d be able to leave things at the contiki basement, if were going back to London after?

  • 28 May 2013 Effy said

    Effy

    I wouldn’t bet on it Zoe , and I know they weigh everyone’s luggage too. What you can probably do its just check before you leave for London and either leave the extra with rellies or post it back to Adelaide. Max weight its 25kg but they don’t weigh it again after the first day so it doesn’t matter if its over later on. I don’t know about hand luggage though.

    Hmm.. I might have to post things back home, Il prob be over the max. weight by a little bit before I get to london lol and whatever I do buy I don’t really wana lug it around Europe with me either. I’ll look into it though, there might be something I can do :))

  • 28 May 2013 Monique said

    Monique

    Zoe. Yes you can. But they will charge you so much a day depending on what your leaving with them. Effy I thought that that was the weight for the flights and that contiki’s limit was 20 kg. I will have to check that because I would love to pack a bit more to take over to England with me. :)

    Hey all, just be careful with weight’s it is now 20kg (44lbs). No longer 25kg, just to make it that little bit more difficult :)

    Yeah Zoe you can, pretty sure it’s on their website and is about $1.50aud per day per bag or somewhere around that :)

    Oh cool :)) thanks everyone! It’d just be a small bag but not sure if I’m keen on paying to keep it there Lol

    Oops my mistake lucky we have you Alexandra!
