Hi, I'm travelling right around Europe from the start of October to the start of December (eastern Europe, western Europe, Spain/Portugal). I need some advice on what 'comfortable walking shoes' people took. Runners? Hiking boots? Street shoes? Advice from Aussies would be appreciated so I can find whatever shoes you mention here in Melbourne :) Cheers!
Hi all, I was hoping for some advice about a recommended winter jacket to purchase for my Europe trip from early Oct to early Dec this year (covering most parts of Europe). Being an Aussie, I struggle when the weather gets below 10C! So advice from fellow Aussies who've been to Europe would be appreciated! Has anyone got any recommendations for me? I want something lightweight, breathable, waterproof and warm. Was thinking Columbia's Triple Trail. Any thoughts? I need to either be able to buy it online, or instore here in Aus. Cheers, Clare

There's nothing quite like immersing yourself in the culture, language and way of life of a country but sometimes it's difficult to know where to begin. The Spanish Spree is the perfect blend of culture and party, both of which Spain has in abundance. See the Royal Palace in Madrid, the Alhambra in Granada and the Rock of Gibraltar, enjoy traditional Flamenco dancing in Seville and live la vida loca in Barcelona.

The European Encounter tour is perfect for those who want to see Europe but don't have months to negotiate their way around the continent. You'll have the opportunity to walk in the steps of Roman Emperors in the Roman Forum, cruise the canals of Amsterdam, take in a Parisian cabaret show and rub shoulders with the rich and famous on the French Riviera...all in a little over two weeks!
Hi guys! Anyone else thinking of doing this tour? I'm thinking of doing it after the Spanish Spree Oct 22-Nov 4. I'm 27 and from Melbourne. I don't drink heavily so am unsure as to whether Contiki will be right for me. Anyway, get in touch if you're on board!
