Thanks for your reply. Yes I have booked the encounter for Jan 11th :) I'm very excited. There is a contiki 2013 FB I found and joined but I havnt found any1 on there yet that is doing our tour. That's exciting that it's your first time abroad. So how old are you and your brother? Are you doing any other travel or tours whilst overseas? :) add me on fb if you like Verity Leahy
That's fantastic news! I'm 17 and my brother is 20. We are all up going to be away for about 5 weeks, which will be really nice. We plan on having some time in London before the tour departs, then go to Berlin for a couple of days after the tour before going up to the north of England to see family for a bit! I've been to the uk before, however only to see family, so doing so much travel in such a short amount of time will be amazing! Where are you from? We're from Western Australia :)...I'm not on Facebook, unfortunately, so I can't add you (just so you know and don't think I'm rude!)
I'm still booked on the European Encounter Jan 11th 2013 and I can't wait! My brother and I are really excited about it, as it will be our first time travelling abroad (alone anyway, without any parents!) I'm not sure about any Facebook groups for this tour, and we haven't got any confirmation details from our travel agent yet, so I haven't joined the meet up. I'll let you know, though, if I hear/find anything out.
Have you booked yet, or are you still thinking about it?...it's creeping up so quickly!
