Ultimate European plus Egypt 17 countries \ 46 days

28 Mar 2011 - 11 May 2011 \ It's hard to think of a bad thing abour our UE. I got to see and do so much. We had such a good group and our TM Steve Ellison was full of knowledge and our TD Aidan Hopkins driving was awesome. The weather could not have been more perfect, Steve's playlists were great, the games were fun, we had great theme parties, the accommodation was good overall. Sometimes things didn't go to plan (like the Colosseum closing early or the trains not running in Egypt) but it always turned out ok. We all got along so well and now I miss my Contiki family! Amen for Facebook :)
