    Hi Josh and Kayla I had another tour booked that was cancelled today so am booking this one in the morning are either of you in Auckland for long before hand? Josh are you spending any time in Australia? I noticed you are travelling from the UK. You can find me on facebook if you like.

    I’ll create a page shortly as when I was in Euorpe on Contiki we found it was the best way to chat.

    So excited!

    i’m really looking forward to meeting all of you :-) it’s gonna be awesome. does anyone have any plans pre or post tour? i’ve got two nights in auckland before the tour starts and one night in christchurch after.. i was a bit concerned that there wouldn’t be much to do in christchurch but the contiki rep assured me that there’s still alot to see and do and accommodation was really cheap so decided to stay. so excited!

    Hi Everyone!! I’ve also joined the tour, I’m very excited for this tour to begin! I’m also planning on being in Auckland before the tour. I’m hoping to fly to Auckland on Jan 28. Has the Facebook group started? I’m also doing a 16 day tour of Australia in January, as well. This will be my 4th Contiki tour, I can’t wait!! :)
