    I’m from belgium. last year i did the eastern adventure (new orleans to new york), which is part of the grand southern tour. Great trip, nice people.

    I booked the trip and flights with connections.

    This year i’m going on the southern adventure (also part of the grand southern), from la to new orleans (starts on 19th july).

    Are there already some people who will join the grand southern in july?
    I will go to connections to ask some information about the flight tickets…

    Filip: what was the average age last year?

    I would like to go, but I’m not allowed to go when I’m the only one from Belgium in the group. Because we have to go on our own to LA I’m looking for someone who does the same trip so we can maybe book the same flight.
