    awsome Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> im thinking about going on that date aswell, but the travel agent told me that the new contiki brochure is coming out in october this year, so looks like we have to wait to book? i think, not sure.

    im going solo too woo so excited already lol and its over a year away, but still save save

    i’m also thinking around that time. either escapade or contrasts, but i think my bank balance will lean me towards escapade!

    i’m not sure what date trip to do, probably in august and probably one of the Preferred dates i guess…

    oh i am from Perth and also doing the solo thing. im really surprised, in a good way, about how many people are diong the trips solo!

    I thinking of doing this trip April or May Preffered Departure, then a 4 night london explorer, after that maybe few days at the Piccadilly Hotel/Hostel.

    I am traveling solo, I just came back from a American contiki tour New Orleans to New York, loved it so much. going to book 6 months ahead for much discount as I can.

    Hey Beth and Nicky, both my mate and myself are doing Escapade in first/second week of August, most likely same trip as you guys…were both from Brisbane. Will be heading to London for a week first in start of August.

    Have you guys booked? do you know how far in advance you can put down a deposit?

    I’m looking doing the European Escapade in about June/July. I’m still trying to decide how far my budget will stretch and which is the best tour.

    My mates don’t have the money so I’m going solo – will be my first time traveling alone, but it’s good to hear heaps of other people are doing the same thing!

    Now just waiting for the dates to be released…

    catch, dylan

    Seems like everyone is heading over there in summer which is a bummer! I am doing this tour with a mate at the beginning of April 2010 then working through the summer in London! I think we have all chosen the best tour! I have done Contiki before and it is soo much fun but really exhausting so you wouldnt want to do it for too long! Cant wait!! Good luck saving guys

    Hey crew,

    Looking at going to europe for 3-6 months at this stage in May/june 2010. Thinking about starting with a european escapade but waiting for the dates to be released, then northern europe the scandinavia tour to check everything out and then do my own thing from there. None of my mates have the money to go and I’m not that keen on going solo but other mates have said its fun. So if anyone is thinking round the same time and in the same boat or has any advice on the best way to do this coz i have never been overseas before get in contact

    Cheers guys
