Kiwi Gal seeing the world!
I finished my 46 day camping tour of Europe on the 12th August 11! I had such an amazing time and cannot think of one bad thing to say. Everything was an experience no matter what it was....(even ending up in hospital with a dislocated knee, and doing it in a Florence night club)!!!!! I went on my own and I think it was the best thing I could have done. I got to meet a awesome bunch of people that I got to have new experiences with. I have made friends for life and am planning on seeing some of them again soon. I had never really been camping for a long period of time before so I was a little nervous about what it would be like for 46days. I ended up loving it and finding that everyone got to hang with everyone most of the time and our group got really close to each other. It was also nice to go to a chilled out campsite in a awesome location at the end of a busy day in the citys and most of the time by the beach, lake of within nature but close enough to the city that you could get a cab home at night and it didnt cost a fortune. Also having a on road cook was AMAZING!!! We ate so well every morning and evening, always freshly prepared meals that were so tasty. Our tour manager Mia Potter was the cooliest, down to earth chick I have ever meet. I felt so lucky to have such an amazing tour manager with us for our tour! She was always bright eyed and ready to go every morning no matter what the day or what we had all been up doing the night before. It was great having someone so passionate about showing people the different places of Europe and everything it has to offer. We all felt so privilleged to have her with us. I saw the most amazing places and had the experience of my life and it wouldnt have been possible without CONTIKI!!!! So to anyone considering travelling with a tour I would recommed Contiki over anyone else, if you are going at it alone, with a friend or as a couple I will promise you that you will have the time of your life!!!

This was the most amazing time of my life! Saw all the major sites in the big cities, had some beautiful relaxing days in Corfu and Dubrovnik, learnt so much, was surprised by some of the cities I knew little about. Camping really wasn't that bad, in fact it helped our group to bond that little bit more. Our road crew was simply amazing, best manager, best driver and best cook! I loved hanging out at the Contiki Campsites, Rome was a highlight with the Whiteboard party. Ate so much amazing food I cannot even comprehend. I will never ever forget the friends I made, la familia for life! If you're looking for a tour that does everything, leaves nothing out and has the most amazing environment, I recommend the Big Chill 100%

When I took this tour I had never travelled alone before and had never been to Europe. While on this tour I saw some of the worlds most amazing sights spanning from the Eiffel Tower in Paris all the way to the Blue Mosque in Istanbul. This really was a trip of a lifetime and I will never forget the people and places I met on this adventure. The night life is amazing. I think I went out almost every night and partied my @## off. Get ready to drink because you will never slow down. If you are debating on if the trip is worth your time or money, just book it already. Thats what I did and this trip has been the best decision I have ever made.

This trip was incredibly awesome. I think you need to be a particular kind of person to handle camping for 46 days and I think this is the reason why everyone got a long so well, with no stupid drama, and are still in touch after the trip. I won't lie that when it rains it can make things pretty miserable and mucky but it doesn't matter when you think about the entire trip and how awesome it is. Out east I think was everyones most memorable moments - it's crazy out there and bloody interesting. I miss being on it and I miss everyone xxx

This tour was absolutely amazing, had the best on road team that made the experience even better. made some amazing friends that i don't think i would have made if it wasn't a camping tour. Food was absolutely amazing, thank you Laura. Lucas gave us some amazing tips on where to go, and Ian was an amazing driver. If you can't do this tour, you have to at least make it to dubrovnik somehow, most amazing place ever!
