Rockies & Stampede then working holiday!

17 Feb 2013 Alex asked


Hey everyone,
I'm doing the Canada and Rockies + Calgary Stampede tour on the 7th of July 2013 and then I'm embarking on a working holiday, probably starting in Vancouver. I'm going alone so looking for all the help/advice/friends I can get before I go! So if anyone is doing the same thing or has any tips for finding work/accommodation it would be greatly appreciated. And even if you're just doing the tour, I'd love to hear from you because this is my first big solo trip :-)
Cheers, Alex

    I’m leaving on the tour departing on the 6th…
    I’m a solo traveler and I’ll be landing in Vancouver at 6:30pm from Toronto on the 5th. I’m thinking of staying in the Samesun hostel for the night, and would like to catch up with anyone from the tour if they’re hanging around because I will miss the kick-start meeting.

    I’m really excited! This is my second Contiki, I did European Magic back in 2011. A strange bunch of tour mates, but had a blast! See you in Canada!
