    Hey I’m doing this LA Explorer too Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> Then heading on to do La to the Bay, can’t wait!!

    Ohh cool!… Do you think you will go to Disneyland? I’m on the bench, I really want to go but it’s a full day’s worth so still unsure!

  • 3 Feb 2011 Sherini said


    Yeah I think I will…it’s kind of one of those things that, if I don’t do it, I KNOW I will regret it later. Plus Anaheim is the original Disneyland, so I really do want to do it…even if it’s just to say I have haha!! Do you know whether it’s offered on both our free time days, or just the second one…? I’m really interested in doing some dance classes on the other day, but I’m not sure which day of the week that would be to look at class schedules…if that makes sense? – any chance anyone doing this trip is a dancer interested in doing classes??

    That’s what I was thinking, if I don’t do it I’ll regret it.. I’m sure there will be a bunch of us wanting to do it. I’m pretty sure its available for both the days but not 100%.. I’d be keen to do dancing classes, Im unco as but I’d be keen to try it haha.. If you want to add me on facebook… Jessie Mattner

    Yeah definitely…I’d say there’d be a heap of people wanting to do it, so either way I’m sure we can make it fun if there’s a group of Contiki people there :) Hehe that would be awesome if you came and did a class!! (no pressure though, I’m totally not fussed to do it alone) and for sure, I’ll add you up on fb now

    Yea exactly im just taking the bear essentials and then buy the rest over there! And a big carry on bag so i can stuff that full too!!lol

  • 9 Feb 2011 Mattner said


    Yeah same, I’m trying to aim on taking like two changes of clothes then get right into shopping haha. It does work out so much cheaper, and its nice to have someone else doing all the running around for you so we dont have to find out stuff to do!

    I was in LA – Santa Monica This past Month after my Contiki tour in San Francisco.
    And I found things to be quite expensive in Los Angeles compared to San Francisco.
