    Hey folks – I’m also on the Beaches and Reefs tour from Sydney on Jan 16. I’m from California; flying solo for the Contiki tour.

    I’m already at the Holiday Inn Potts Point. Weather permitting, I’m hoping to do a bike tour tomorrow (Bonza Bikes or Bike Buffs at 10:30am). I’ll definitely be looking to go out and hit some bars tomorrow night. On Sat, I might check out Bondi Beach if the weather’s OK.

    Let me know if you want to meet up.

    OK, will do. I told some folks I met on the bike tour today I’d meet them out tonight – you’re welcome to join.

    Hey Adam – tried leaving a message with the front desk which was supposed to light up the message indicator on your room phone; not sure if that actually worked.

    In any case, I’ll be up for hanging out tomorrow night. Some folks I met today want to hit The Ivy tomorrow night, so that’s a possibility.

    I’m in room 105 in case you want to leave a message. Same goes for other Contiki’ers who want to go out tomorrow.
