Hi Rachelle =) I've just come across your posting in the discussion forum. I'm going on the European Highlights tour this September and I'm wondering how you went??? Do you have any useful tips for me??? As this is my first over seas trip I'm a little fluster with what to do and what to pack.. Was there anything that you packed and didnt need? OR was there any items you wished you had packed?? I would appreciate your opinion =) Thankyou!!! Hope to hear from you soon, Jess

    Thanks so much for getting back to me. I'm glad you enjoy yourself!! Thanks for the info. Sorry about the double posting. Not sure what happened there lol... I was told we needed a sleeping bag at every place we stay at! Is that right? I'm thinking I should just purchase one from the contiki basement because I'm staying in Singapore before and after the tour, so I don't want extra luggage =) I'm slowly getting it all together. BUT I will definitely contact you if I have any questions, because I'm positive there will be things I'm not sure about.. Thanks so much!!!

    Hi Jessica, Gosh were do I start I had the time of my life on this tour. Everything is fast moving but you are craming in so much in just two weeks so be prepared for late nights and early mornings. You will have plenty of time to sleep on the bus tho going form city to city. I think i over packed to be honest but at the same time I dont think I did if you get what I mean lol... I ended up buying another suite case in amsterdam to bring home with me just because I did do some shopping :) Be aware that at a couple of places we stayed that there was no hot water so we all had cold showers and being a concept tour you arnt in luxury hotels all the time. I went when it was still cold so i had to try and pack jumpers and jeans where as it will be nice when you go so you can probably fit more in being summer clothes. I would still take a jumper tho just in case. You can do washing at some places but it does cost you and its hard if your only there for one night because your sharing with not long your group but other contiki groups that you will see along the way. I dont regret anything I did or what I took it was the best holiday and it was my first time overseas as well and by myself. You will make some great new friends. Just enjoy every minute and take it all in. Oh and dont miss the bus lol when they say it has to leave it has too we left someone behind he had to catch up with the bus at the next place and sometimes that can be hard. Other than that like I said just enjoy yourself. If you need to know anything else just let me know.
