Our European tour has begun! We are currently on our Contiki bus heading for the English Channel where we will board a ferry bound for France. First stop - Paris! We are very excited, however, our tour guide, Penny, has scared us a little too. She gave us a 45 minute speech warning us of everything from missing the bus to pickpocketing and from gypsies to the mafia! Her vision of Italy is very different to mine!
Our bus has 1 person from New Zealand and the other 49 are from Oz. Very multicultural! The people we have met so far seem nice enough. I'm not sure if I told you before we left, but Contiki has an age limit of 35. I think most people are out to get drunk and hook up with stangers. I feel old!
