Wow, what a blast contiki has been so far.
It’s sad because I know before long now, it will all come to an end!
And it’s my birthday soon which really will be the end of contiki when we are finishing up in Las Vegas.
For those who have previously traveled on a contiki or a group tour that travels so closely together for an extended period of time will understand just how easily and quickly you can create a connection with some of the most amazing people you will ever meet.
People who you know are like you, who think like you, who look at life the same way that you do.
I know just how much I am going to miss this wonderfully group of people.
So a notification to anyone who is going on a contiki or group tour, prepare yourself to fall even more in love with life and with people.
Let yourself be inspired and motivated. Let people push you outside of your boundaries. Let people bring out the best in you and encourage others that they can do more and be more.
Anyway, enough of the soppy stories for now. Because there is still much more to be updated from today and still another whole week to go on contiki!
This morning we left for Amarillo, Texas at the Big Texan Inn. It wasnt an overly long bus day but out tour manager had us play contiki olympics on the bus with games to keep us busy and occupied 🙂
Around mid afternoon, we arrived! It was a hot steamy day so a lot of us went for a swim in the Texas shaped swimming pool!
So the steak challenge involves eating 4.5 pounds of steak, baked potato, shrimp cocktail, salad and a bread roll. The contenders have an hour to complete the challenge by themselves and if the meal is completed within the hour, the $72 meal is free.

That night we also had our contiki cowboy/ cowgirl party at the Big Texan I mentioned in a previous post.
We dressed up in our cowboy and cowgirl gear, did our hair and out on our hats and bandanas!
They had special Texas cocktails at the bar and we danced late into the night boot scooting, nutbushing and even the Cupid shuffle 🙂
Slowly one by one we headed home to our funky hotel rooms and get ready for another day on the bus tomorrow.
