Jam packed 7 days!

Island and Rainforest (Start Whitsundays) 1 country \ 8 days

13 Oct 2015 - 19 Oct 2015 \ I went with my 2 best childhood friends and we jumped on the contiki tour towards the end of the trip because they had already started 10 days before us in Sydney. It was a bit tough at first having to meet everyone in only a short amount of time but everyone was so lovely and they were already a family and so welcoming. Other than that issue, the actual trip itself was amazing! 7 days, each day was jam packed. I went up in October and the weather was perfect, 28 everyday hot and always warm. If it ever dribbled rain, it was never a bother! Bring lots of spare swim wear! Because we didn't have any time to wash any so luckily I took up 3. The accommodation is great, especially the daydream island, its so beautiful and you have the unique experience of a open aquarium around your hotel. I recommend doing the jet skis and the fish feed talk with contiki and use the free spas and saunas! The hotel in Cairns is also a bonus! Its only a 5-10 minute walk into the main town and has awesome breakfast! I recommend doing the one day sailing! I got to see a sea turtle! Definitely swim in the white haven beach, its that clear and you can open your eyes under the water and it hardly stung! I did most of the contiki activities such as one day sailing, white water rafting, minjin swing, bungee & kayaking in cape tribulation and when ever I had spare time I even would just call up activities nearby by to fill up spare space in my day. Like example in Cairns, I did the bumper boats and parasailing when I had mee time and that was so much fun! Lastly bring lots of sunscreen, you will peel if you don't slip slop slap, and bring lots of insect repellant for cape tribulation and sunglasses! I also recommend starting in Sydney the 16 day tour if your going solo so you can start at the actual beginning

A Bucket list must to do!

Asian Adventure 3 countries \ 14 days

07 Jan 2015 - 20 Jan 2015 \ This trip went so quick, but loved every minute of it! It was a great way to experience every countries culture, history, food, their nature and beautiful monuments. The trip also allowed plenty metime options to ride an elephant, hug a tiger, go water tubing in caves and much more! The highlight was seeing Ankor Wat Temple in Cambodia and definitely just how beautiful and kind the people in Laos are. I went in January and it was very hot, bring LOTS LOTS of undies as you will go through 2 a day from all the sweating! There was 2 places in Thailand up high in the mountains where it was raining and very cold and our group was not prepared for such a dramatic change in weather so bring 2 spare warm jumpers or jackets and warm pants.

Best way to see all of New Zealand

The Big Tiki (Auckland to Christchurch) 0 countries \ 0 days

03 Jan 2014 - 21 Jan 2014 \ I definitely loved this trip. It's awesome for those who love scenery and adrenaline activities as there's so much to do! Be prepared to however bring a lot of money for activities, and food and souvenirs as it is very costly in New Zealand. Night life is dull as the city s and towns are very empty and quiet but the rest of the trip was magnificent!

I definitely loved this trip.
