Say something on Shecontiki's profile
Hi I am going on the sun and steam tour departing Auckland on the 10th of July I understand this tour is apart of the big tiki and any other tour that is departing Auckland on or around this date so I have joined the meet up but obviously this is only for the sun and steam tour so it means I don't get to know others on the big tiki before I leave. Looking forward to meeting everyone see you in auckland
Hi I know its so exciting going on your big adventure and think it won't happen to me, I have been on 6 contiki tours and all went to plan and I survived them had amazing luck best time, but unfortunately on my last contiki tour I got half way through a 24 day tour when my knee ended up giving way, I couldn't walk on it so i had to stablise it with some duck tape which worked great but wasn't so fun taking it off so my advice is: - Always pack a good quality, long compression bandage so if you sprain your ankle/wrist/ knee atleast you can stablise it until you get to a doctor because it can be difficult to find a doctor as unfortnately contiki continues with out you so basically your either on the bus or you get left behind - antibacterial gel for hands - panadol, antibiotics, multivitamins, cough lollies, cold and flu tablets -bandaids remember to buy some washing powder so now I'm awaiting a knee reconstruction as I had ruptured my acl legiment and my mcl legiment (which is now healing) so please be careful doesn't matter how much you think its not going to happen to me, your luck might just be due to run out.
