Guest Blog Post: My Contiki Memory

Guest Blog Post by Jenny E., Contiki traveler

Then in July 2013 I made the leap over the pond for three weeks with a few friends. I did the London Explorer with Contiki, a self-guided, 4 nights, 5 days package during one of the weeks and spent the other two weeks traveling the country.
