I was bitten by the travel bug two years ago and haven't been able to stop going places since! I love languages (especially Spanish) and ancient architecture.

"Ok guys...Let's do it!"

Mediterranean Highlights (Start Madrid) 5 countries \ 13 days

03 Aug 2012 - 16 Aug 2012 \ I absolutely loved this trip! Even though I was worried about meeting people (I was the youngest: only 18!) I had an absolute blast! Mathieu, our guide, was hilarious and Genaro, our bus driver, was a total sweetheart even though he didn't speak any English. At first when I was booking this trip, I wasn't sure what to think or to believe all of the great reviews I seemed to be finding. But after going on this trip, I knew I made the right choice by choosing Contiki. The trip was amazing, the people I met and the friendships I made will stay with me forever.
