Contiki was the most amazing experience of my life. From day one I felt so welcomed by all of our travellers and our road crew, and as time went on we only got closer.
It was such a different experience to traveling by myself - knowing I had a supportive group of people around me, that everything was organised and ready to go and all I had to do was sit back and enjoy the ride? Amazing!
And boy did things run smoothly. We always arrived on time, had the most amazing meals cooked for us by Nate - that was the biggest surprise for me, the incredible food he could cook in such short amounts of time and with such basic equipment, I was not expecting the food to be SO good! Our TM Keifer (aka Keiferpedia), was so knowledgeable about everything around Europe and so gueninely passionate about his job, plus he always had great suggestions when we didn’t know what to do.
Our coach driver, João, was always cheerful and smiling and managed to get us in and out of so many sticky situations, god knows how. 110% this wouldn’t have been half as amazing as it was without the insane hard work and attitude from these three!
The trip itself was incredible, covered so many places and gave us just enough time to pick our favourite hotspots before we were whisked off to the next place.
All of the optionals were superb, even the few I didn’t expect to enjoy, and the fact that I can go home and say I traveled 24 countries with 35 amazing people is something not many people can say. I can honestly come away from the last 46 days saying I have #noregrets!
