Mediterranean Excursion

» 10 September 2003 » In Travel »

I had always wanted to see the Mediterranean, and I finally got my wish. Earlier this year, while still at FAST, I booked a 14 day Mediterranean Highlights tour with Contiki, a company that organizes and conducts tours all over the world for 18-35 year olds. The time I picked was the middle of July, and actually it worked out quite nicely with my relocation and change of jobs since I started at Yahoo! right after the vacation.
The tour started in Madrid, progressed through Barcelona, Avignon, Aix-en-Provence, Cannes, Nice, Monte Carlo, Florence, and ended in Rome. We traveled by bus and spent 1-2 days in each city with shorter stops along the way. We had about 50 people altogether, including the tour manager and the driver. I must say that our group was simply great – very friendly, funny, and affable people from many different countries: Australia, Canada, Colombia, Mexico, USA, and so on. We had a lot of fun on this trip and saw most of the famous sights, all of which is detailed in the pictures I took with my new Canon S45 camera. I would do it again in a second and recommend you try out one of these tours yourself.
