    Hey Alesha, I did the Grand Southern last year and it was awesome! Booked on Grand Northern for 5th Aug this year. There’s a Facebook group up for this group if you have decided to do this tour :-)

    Hey Alesha, its such a shame im doing this tour but im starting in LA :(
    I really wish i had just started in NY, and i really hope people are doing my tour because it would be mighty lonely on my own haha!
    I hope you enjoy it :)
