    I’m from Wellington in NSW its not really much of a town lol! I’ll be 21 by the time we go so its guna be an exciting year for me Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->
    the extras I want to do are George’s Boat, and maybe a tour of Pompeii, the volcano tour thing in Santorini and my friend told me the flamenco dancing in Paris was awesome so I was thinking maybe that too!
    I cant wait I’ve been like obsessing over this trip for ages now!

    I officially booked my place on this trip yesterday! I can’t wait!! I’m leaving aus on the 6th so i’ll have a few extra days in London and i’m staying one extra day in Athens at the end. My passport should be here any day now!

    Is anyone else having extra days?

  • 24 Feb 2009 Becca4 said


    I am arriving in London on the 7th and staying at the Royal National so I have a few days before the tour starts. When the tour is finished i have booked a flight from athens back to london but i think i might stay in europe and travel a lil bit more. If anyone is interested in staying longer with me and running a muck it would be great. Im meeting a friend over there and may go to Ibiza and party for a couple of weeks.

    Hello, everyone I am considering booking this trip next week! I see that there are alot of girls going alone, yay! I am doing a Contiki next week to Egypt and I’m kind of waiting to see how that goes. I am going to do the London to Athens plus Greek Island Hopping. I wanted to get on here first and see if people were going to arrive a few days early/stay late? I would like to add on a few days at the beginning and possibly a while at the end (a week give or take.) Let me know!

    id be interested in doing that. I was thinking of going to germany after if anyones interested

  • 9 Mar 2009 Susie82 said


    I’m from Melbourne, Australia and will be spending a week or so in London before the tour starts on June 10th! I’m going to be doing it alone as well but it’s soo exciting to meet new people and see Europe together! Can’t wait! Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

  • 18 Mar 2009 Katrina said


    Hey did you guys see on the contiki website that our trip is a definite departure now? so so excited! I cant believe we still have to wait more than 2 months! wish we were going now! Does anyone know if there is a limit to how big our bag can be on the bus? I’m nervous that they’re gonna say mine is too big Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> is everyone whose getting to London early staying at the Royal National?

  • 18 Mar 2009 Becca4 said


    I think it has to be certain weight to get into heathrow. Im gonna get sleeping bag ect when i get to london so i can take more stuff on the plane. I am staying at the royal national for 3 nights before the tour. we should all meet up and have a big night on the london town before?

  • 19 Mar 2009 Katrina said


    Oh thats a heap good idea Becca! never thought about the sleeping bag lol! I’m getting into London on Sunday the 7th so we should definately hit the pubs before the tour starts!

  • 19 Mar 2009 Becca4 said


    I get into london on the 7th too about 6.30 in the morning. Im getting soo excited about the whole experience!! Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->

    I got my backpack today yay!!! I was wondering if anyone would like to go to amsterdam with me after the tour?

  • 25 Mar 2009 Katrina said


    Hey Becca how long are you planning on going to amsterdam for? I’m dying to go there (my family’s half dutch lol) and I’m tossing up whether to stay longer in europe than I orginally planned because my work situation has changed!

  • 25 Mar 2009 Becca4 said


    Havnt really planned it but i do want to travel a bit more after the tour and would be much cheaper if someone came with me. I was thinking a bit more europe, amsterdam, germany i would like to go to spain for the running of the bulls that would be soo interesting
