Contiki is one of the best ways to meet new people and travel around when you are travelling solo. I’ve done 3 Contiki’s: Southern Adventure, Croatia Island Escape Plus and European Whirl. On each of these trips, I’ve met so many amazing people, and experienced so many different cultures, cuisines and activities.
So, how do you make the most of Contiki?
- Make Friends. It’s so important to speak to & try to get to know everyone on your tour, even if it’s just their name. If you’re travelling solo, this will ensure that you make the most of your experience as you won’t feel like you’re alone. One thing to remember, these people become your family!
- Do all the extras. Contiki provides a list of different extra activities that you can do on the tour you are on, some of which include, depending on the location, paragliding, hot air ballooning, different dinner options which include local cuisines, the list goes on! As the motto of Contiki says “#noregrets”.
- Get out of your comfort zone. Jump out of a plane in the Swiss Alps and go skydiving or jump off of a cliff in Austria and go paragliding. Conquer your fear of heights and complete a challenging ziplining course. Don’t be afraid to try new, different types of food and drinks. Make the most of your trip by doing things you wouldn’t normally do at home, you will thank yourself for it later.
Most importantly, have fun and have #noregrets. It’s your life, make it a memorable one!
