Anyone doing London to Athens 25th August ?

18 May 2013 ecristelle asked


Hey all!

Just wondering if anyone is doing London to Athens on 25th August?
When that finishes I'm doing the extended 13 day Greek Island Hopper on September 14th..
Will be in London August 21-25 and wouldn't mind a partner in crime to explore London with :)
Traveling solo for the first time.. so scary yet so exciting :)))

    I am booked on the London to Athens tour on the 25th August and am also travelling solo for the first time. I will also be arriving in London on the 21st and staying at the Royal National Hotel until our contiki tour starts, Having someone to explore London with would be really good. Let me know once you have read this and I can let you know some more about my travel plans.

    don’t be scared! i was so nervous when I did my first one, but then the first night out, your all out gettin drunk together, stumbling back to the hotels, running around trying to find a taxi, its pretty funny, and then everyone looks after each other, its pretty awesome! no need to be nervous. promise!
