I'm thinking about doing my first Contiki tour next year. One of my old work mates has moved to Sydney so I have an excuse to come to Oz.<BR><BR>I'm sure I'd love it but I'm nervous about booking.<BR><BR>1) I've never been on a flight longer than 7 hrs e.g. London to NY before on my own. Don't know if I could handle nearly 24 hrs of flying. What happens if my first flight comes in late and I miss the plane for the 2nd flight?<BR><BR>Way out would be London to Sydney with a stopover in Singapore or HK, but on the way back I'll need to go from Cairns. Will I have to go back to Sydney first? That would make the way home a really long journey.<BR><BR>2) How long each day do we spend on the coach?<BR><BR>3) I get sea sick quite easily. Should I avoid the sailing and just stay on the resort at Whitsundays? Is the ocean quite calm? <BR><BR>4) Most importantly, what is the tour like?
