I would but i don’t have a facebook page <!--graemlin::(-->
yay another one!
whats your name btw?
well, now we know theres 5 people.. haha
I so cannot wait to be in Greece, I think we are in Italy for my birthday <!--graemlin::)-->
My name is Becky. Where are you coming from? What day do you plan on arriving in London?
So far all of us are staying at the Royal National. What about you?
Birthday celebrations are the best. We will have to do it up right in Italy to celebrate your birth!!
I’m a new zealander but living in Texas at the moment… I’m staying at the royal national too..haven’t quite decided how many days in advance of the trip i’m going to get to London but oh well…
thats awesome you are over there for your birthay,itll def be a big one <!--graemlin::D-->
i get into london on the 23rd so let us know when you decide what date you are getting in.
btw i bet you’re glad you only have to fly from texas not alllllll the way from NZ :P
Oh yeah…I’ve done that trip before..soooo much shorter flying from Texas…. So hopefully the jet lag won’t affect me too bad! I’ll prob arrive on the 24th.. so its just a countdown now!! Plus packing dilemmas, Sometimes its so hard being a girl :P
haha yeh its hard being a girl isnt it. ive already been thinking about how the hell im gunna pack under 20kgs lol
oh yeah, that sucks..coming from the U.S we get almost double everyone elses luggage allowance..which is pretty fantastic I have to say
aw dammit no fair!
im flying qantas and you get 23kgs but itll still need to be under 20 at the start of the tour and im sure ill buy lots so gotta make sure ive got room for all that too.
im going to struggle i think
Coming from the US definitely has its perks. We do get a lot more luggage than other places. : )
Packing is definitely going to be awful. I will probably back my bag and then tell myself I have to get rid of half the stuff that it is it…I just have so many pairs of shoes!! haha
Does anyone have any idea what extra activities they may be doing?
Do you mean on our own or out of the Contiki optional activities?
From what I have read, Georges Boat off of Corfu is a must do. And Paradise Beach, Oia Sunset
and Boat Cruising off the greek islands are on my list. I also want to take the red buses around London to sightsee. : ) So FUN!
What activities are you interested in doing?
Theres so much I want to do its crazy! I definitely want to see Pompeii, and do some of the water sports things in Corfu, but mostly I was just going to see what other people were keen for and kinda just go with it I guess…
I wish we were going tomorrow, time is moving far to slowly for my liking..
Wow you girls took my thread for a walk haha. I myself have 2 pairs of shoes. My mate Adam has hundreds!
Hey Clair, yay another one! I think thats 8 or 9 now. Yeah George’s Boat and water sports in Corfu are supposed to be awesome!!!
Only 4 months to go!!! Woooo!!!
lol aussie, at least you wont have trouble deciding which shoes to take … adam on the other hand might haha
4 months! yaaaaay
120 Days till tour starts!!!!
I can’t even think about packing right now its going to be horrible.
Even I don’t think I have hundreds of pairs of shoes, and I have more than enough… Leaving some behind is going to be sad, esp cause I have no immediate plans to come back to the U.S, might stay in the UK and work or travel a bit more <!--graemlin::)-->
I’m trying to come up with a way to speed up time, so far all my thinking margeritas have done is give me a hangover!
haha thinking margeritas… i like it.
i have to say though time is going pretty fast for me, its usually the last few weeks that are the worst cos your like so close but so far away.
although i kinda need to time, havent been as good with saving as i would have liked lol
I think we all may have to do all of the excursions that Contiki has. They all sound way to fun to pass up. Is there anything, outside of what Contiki offers, that people are interested in doing?
So Excited. I can’t wait!!
