    Hi, I just know about the sleeping bags. If you are from the US you get a sleeping bag from Contiki, if you are from else where, I think that you are on your own. I somehow managed to get a bag, even though I’m from Canada. This may be due to the fact that I booked with a group in the US.

    On another note. Have you decided on which tour. I’m on the July 1 Euro Escapade.

    Hope this helps,

    Yeah I can confirm that. Us kiwis have to take along a sleeping bag for the tour.

    Just remember to leave some room in your case for the flight over – enjoy Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->

    Nope, no other tours for me. I’m actually leaving Canada the day after my last day of high school. Then when I get back from the tour, I’m moving away to university! This will probably be my last chance to get away for the next 4 years or so. I also can’t afford more than one tour as I’m paying for uni myself as well. Frowner<!--graemlin::(-->
