    Yep, I’m from Adelaide.

    I’m coming over with my brother.

    I’m the same, I went to the states this time last year and went to LA, Vegas, San Fran, New York and Boston.

    So excited to see Boston again!

    Where are you from?

    Well we have the week in New York before the tour, keen to check out Coney Island this time and just go with the flow.
    After the tour we’re staying in Vancouver for an extra 2 nights, then flying to Vegas for 3 nights and staying at the Bellagio.
    Kylie, where are you staying? And Hawaii, I’m so jealous!
    After Vegas we head to LA for 4 night before heading home.
    It’s going to be amazing!

    It’s going to be wicked fun ladies!
    I hope we get a really good tour group :)
    It’s going to be like about 40 degrees when we’re in Vegas haha, but I guess that’s a good excuse to make the most of the hotel pools and bars!

  • 2 Feb 2011 Kate said


    Be extra fun for you two, so far your the only males

  • 3 Feb 2011 Agent Awesome said

    Agent Awesome

    Well I’m not male haha but my brother certainly is!
    Serves me right for not putting my actual name up haha.
    It’s Amy anyhow.
    My friend has been on alot of these tours and she reckons that the blokes are just too lazy to post on forums, so it could be pretty equal..

  • 3 Feb 2011 Kate said


    haha my bad.. for some reason i thought you wrote twin brother bit further up… lol over active imagination i think. Yeah it was the same for the last tour i went on. your a nice sibling travelling with your brother

  • 3 Feb 2011 Agent Awesome said

    Agent Awesome

    Haha we get along really well so it should be good.
    The last people I went overseas with were a massive fail so I’m glad to go with someone good this time!
    I’ve heard this tour is awesome too, can’t wait to finish work and go on it!
    Do you think it will be all Aussies on there?
