G'day, im 23 from Western Australia. Opportunity came up to head off to Europe, so here I am. Setting off on the 29 Day European Contrasts Tour, 21st August to 18th September 2011. On a cricket tour through England a month before hand and staying at the Royal National a few nights before the tour kicks off, so if anyone's keen for a few cheeky pre-tour pints hit me up.

The best month of my life!
European Contrasts 12 countries \ 30 days
21 Aug 2011 - 18 Sep 2011 \ I had always wanted to do a contiki tour simply because everyone you speak to that had done one said it was simply amazing. I travelled solo not knowing anyone and wasn't sure exactly what to expect. European contrasts 29 day concept tour was the one I had chosen and wouldn't have changed a thing. From the first minute our group got chatting I knew that it was going to be amazing. Everyone had the right attitude and was there for the right reasons. Our tour manager and driver where two of the better blokes you will ever come across. The knowledge they possessed and finding the right balance of fun and culture ensured everyone on tour had the opportunity to get out of it what they wanted. All in all it was the best thing I have ever done. 13 countries with 39 likeminded people ranging in age from 18-29. Make sure you budget a little more money, do every optional, even if it means getting out of your comfort zone, and hit contiki with an open mind, you will not be dissaponted. From the tour I found an amazing girlfriend, people I would class as best mates and lifelong friends. It has really changed the way I look at things. Thank you contiki, my tour manager, tour driver and all 39 on tour for the best month Ive ever had.
