    Hi Courtney!

    I’m doing the London to Athens trip that starts in London on the 7th of July. The London to Paris departure on my trip is the 8th of July. Because I’m from Canada, my trip itinerary “starts” on July 6th (which is when I fly out of the country).
    Do you know what day you’re leaving London for Paris? Perhaps we’re on the same trip! I haven’t met anyone yet for my dates, so that would be great because I’m traveling alone too!!

    Hi Jenza,

    oh god better check with my travel agent then about the dates. It says that the departure from London is on the 8th.

    I’m from Perth in Western Australia and this is my first trip overseas and i’m soooo scared to be doing it by myself but oh well, part of the fun i spose!

    It sounds like we will be on the same trip tho! I’m getting in to London on the 3rd of July so will have some time for sight seeing…. and a bit of shopping! Will you be staying at the Royal International Hotel thats in the Contiki book?

    As of right now I’m getting into London just when the trip starts, so yes I will be staying at the Contiki Hotel on July 6th. I’ve booked the trip, but am waiting to book the flight, and if I get a good deal, I might come a few days earlier. I’m also continuing on after Athens with the Greek Island Hopping tour, which looks fabulous.

    I’ve been to Europe once before, but never by myself. I think the plane ride will be the worst because I will be WAY too excited to sleep. I can’t complain though, because yours will be about 3x as long as mine. I’ve begun my packing list already, which is what will keep me going through the next 6 months of saving every penny!

    I can’t wait Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Well ill probably see you at the hotel before the tour then Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    I wish i could to the Island hopping tour as well but i have to come back to work which sucks!

    Yes it is a VERY long flight! The longest flight ive ever been on is only 3 and a half hours so this one is gonna be death! lol yes the saving is very hard for me! im not very good at it lol
