    Hi this is Abi from Sydney!! I am doing the same tour and I am sooooo excited. So far, it seems like we have a lot of girls. Anyone here from Sydney??

    Vanessa and Stacey, I also tried to add you guys on Facebook but there are so many people. Can you give your email addresses so I can narrow down the search if that’s okay. I would love to chat before the tour starts.

    Here are my details. Anyone who is doing the same tour, please feel free to add me.

    it will be so good to catch up before the tour!

  • 5 May 2009 Kimberley said


    Im getting the hang of Facebook, haha.. slowly, but surely.

    I know it’s still early yet, but do any of you have any ideas/plans for the free days we have on the trip? particularly while in LA/Anaheim??

  • 5 May 2009 Oz83 said



    not too sure yet about the days yet was hoping to see both disneyland and universal studios in la. went to disneyland when when they were building californa adventures so it will have changed some what.

    want to cram as much as i can in! i know we probably wont have time but i want to see a show on broadway and a football or baseball game!!
