Hi everybody.. Last night my 5 week overseas trip came to an end unfortunately. I travelled through Europe with a Contiki group, stayed in London for around 10 days and finished the holiday on the greek islands.
What was so suprising was the friendships that developed on tour. We all had a great time, no issues of any sort, and it was so sad saying goodbye to people that in just 17 days were able make you feel like the friendship was for years!
While overseas, i took every opportunity to check out FF as i didn't want to miss anything, yet i still haven't been able to keep up the traffic!
It is so exciting to be a Ford Man at the moment...
welcome back JEM, hope you had fun. How was the contiki tour, heard they are abit tiring and a busy intinery but in the end you see more and enjoy it more.
You reckon a contiki tour is worth it in the end? reason i ask is i'm thinking of doin one next year with a bunch of mates.
Which greek islands did you go to?
Sorry for all the questions lol
And faRK you have missed alot, no way to keep up with the amount of things happening, but back for the grand revelation. Interesting times ahead
1 billion bottles of beer on the ute, 1 billion bottles of beer...........
Mate i had the best time of my life on the Contiki tour. I can only talk about my experience as everybodies opinion and experience on contiki would be different. But i was lucky enough to be involved in a great group with a good tour manager. At the end of the day its the rest of the people that you're touring with that will either make it memorable and enjoyable IMHO. For first time travellers i think this sort of thing is well worth it. I decided to do what they call the "timeout" style of tour other than the cheaper "backpack" variety. Its a bit more expensive, but its more my style to be in a decent hotel rather than in hostels and sleeping bags.
The tour i did went for 17 days, and i knew we were going to be rushed through places, so if you select a short tour, just don't expect to see and do everything. I have no complaints of the tour other than i wish there was more time, but i knew i'd feel that way.
As for the Greek Islands, i went to Santorini and Mykonos. They weren't what i expected, not my style. Very dry, barren looking places...Santorini had crap beaches, Mykonos had decent beaches though, but i was hard pressed to see grass, trees wildlife etc.. I wouldn't go back in a hurry.
Cheers mate and good luck if you do go, i'm sure you'll love it too!
