Hey :)

Is anyone else doing the Grand Southern Tour Starting in LA on the 25th of August?

This is my first time travelling overseas alone so im a little nervous, super excited though.
Will be spending a few days in LA before the tour as i want to go to disney land and santa monica pier etc.

And also spending a few days in New york after the tour.

    ohh really? You definately should have done the July 17 one haha, would have been in Vegas with us that night!! would be a rad birthday night to spend in Vegas!!! Change your booking =)
    We are doing the same as you, I’m travelling with a mate and we are spending 3 days in LA before the trip and 4 days in NY after it…
    We have about 12 in our meetups at the moment, i’ve spoken to a few others that did the trip and they said a tonne of people didn’t join there meet up but when they got to contiki there was 40 or so on the trip, so don’t worry too much about that!
