I had been working almost non-stop for 10 years and I hadn't been to europe yet. I quit and went on 4 contiki tours back to back the summer of 2010. I started with Great Britain and Ireland, then European Experience, Eastern Road, and finished with Golden Fleece... It was the time of my life and my intro to contiki. I then went on a 3 month road trip driving all around North America... americans never really explore their backyard and I have to say America is the most beautiful country I've been to. The Summer of 2012 allowed me to explore again because I was in between jobs. I figure if the mayan calendar theories proved true I might as well see the pyramids and great wall before it happens. I went on 3 contiki tours back to back and starting with a 10 day visit to Family in Taiwan then China Adventure, Egypt and the Nile, and finished with Spanish Spree... I truly have no regrets and would do it all again in a heart beat. Traveling extensively makes you realize how what really makes you happy - and it isn't material things. Still on my check list is: SE Asia, Egypt, Spain, Croatia, Australia, and Russia.
