This Contiki fam just had their 50(!) year reunion


To show us that their adventure wasn’t just about wet tents and cold showers, Carol kindly asked her group to tell us their personal highlights of the trip. Here are a few of our faves:

“Catching the train up the Jungfrau, Switzerland, which is known as “The Top of Europe” and skiing at the top of the Lauterbrunnen-Murren Mountain Railway.”

Hey, that does sound pretty awesome. Maybe that’s why we still do it today!

“Driving our Contiki Red Van around the Monte Carlo Formula 1 circuit itself, and getting to see Jackie Stewart, the famous British racing driver’s, car.  We were also able to wander around the Pits and ogle the amazing F1 cars and experience a little of the high life of a Grand Prix.  Probably couldn’t wander the Pits now…”

Uhh, yeah…this sounds incredible to be honest, but I’m not convinced F1 would give us this kind of access these days. So unless a Contiki driver goes very rogue, I’m afraid this isn’t going to be on an any itineraries next year.

“Pyjama Day.  We all participated in wearing our PJ’s for the travel day into Kavala, Greece.  We were to make sure we had our ‘under garments’ on though!  The looks we were given, by the locals, when we would all disembarked from our little red Contiki van in PJ’s was so hilarious!”

Love it. And Carol, you’ll be happy to know we’re keeping the fancy dress magic going! Some things never change….
