    Got it! We will be traveling from LAX and spending an additional day in Spain, we are going to fly to Madrid cuz we are soo close might as well make it worth our while. Flight was like $80 from Barcelona to Madrid

    Aw now I wish I tried to stay! The only reasonably priced flight out of Barcelona the last day back to Ottawa was early morning. I get into Amsterdam early though 8:40 am or so!

    I booked US Airways! Connection through philadephia both ways. Arrive in Amsterdam 8:40 am on may 3 and leave Barcelona at 1045 am may 13! You should try and get the same one. :)

    I arrive to Amsterdan at 9:05 AM, so looks like we all be coming in around the same time. Planning to go to hotel and drop of luggage and do a few tours before we meet up that night :) Excited seem like a lot of you are going on the 2nd, was worried it was too early in the season and that it wouldn’t be a big group

    My wife and I are going on this trip. We did the simply Italy tour last summer so this will be our second trip with Contiki. The Italian our was amazing and we are really looking forward to doing another.

    Hey everyone!

    I booked the May 2 Amsterdam to Barcelona trip as well. I’m looking forward to my second time partying throughout Europe with Contiki!

    I’m landing around 10:30AM and then planning to head into the city until we meet up at the hotel at 6PM. I hit Amsterdam last year before my first Contiki tour, and had a blast.

    Less than a couple weeks away… can’t wait to meet everyone and get this party started!
