My Decision to do a Contiki

A Contiki Tour has never really been something that was high on my ‘To Do’ list. I’ve been overseas a few times before and the idea of a completely set out daily itinerary scares me a bit.Β  However, when I decided to travel over to Europe in the middle of the year, and traveling solo, I knew that 5 weeks by myself was something that I wasn’t completely interested in.

Enter Contiki

After countless searches online and speaking to a few people who have done a Contiki, I made the decision to do a 14 day Contiki Tour through Spain, which goes to many places throughout Spain such as Madrid, Barcelona, Seville and what I’m most excited about… Ibiza!

With this tour, I will get the opportunity to meet heaps of people, see many places in two weeks that I normally wouldn’t choose to go to, and experience the Spanish Culture from all over the country.

I am quite excited for this first part of my holiday, however the places I’m going to after Spain are the ones I’m most excited for.

Stay tuned to hear about the plans for the rest of my upcoming adventure.

GoPro Hero+ LCD

Does that mean I’m all set for my upcoming holiday in June? Maybe not, but it does feel like it. After much consideration I finally purchased a GoPro Hero+ LCD. It will be perfect for my travels through sunny Europe in June and July. Initially I was just going to take my iPhone as my camera as I’ll be traveling solo and didn’t want to lug too much stuff around, however I decided to get the GoPro as its the perfect size for what I am wanting to achieve, and I get to take cool underwater pics and vids!

As I type it is on charge, so I haven’t had much playing around, except for the settings (and I’m yet to buy the SD card, so I won’t get too far without one of those). However the addition of the touch screen is what made the purchase essential, as well as the $100 discount. I’ve also downloaded the GoPro app for easy transfer of my photos and videos so I can keep everyone at home up to date on my travels.

I’m looking forward to using it, but will definitely get practice before I leave (in 98 days πŸ˜†πŸ˜†)

I’ll definitely be speaking to you before I leave , updating you on my travel plans, what I’m looking forward to the most, the decision to travel solo and what I’ll be taking.

Speak soon.
