    I am so excited… a little scared but really excited!
    Yeah i booked a couple of days ago… also heading to Vegas and LA after the BAE – no tours just winging it! Are you guys finishing in NY or heading somewhere else?

    Im Sarah btw and im from the Gold Coast, QLD.

    i know what you mean, i’ve always wanted to do the US but for some reaon I always put it off but this time I actually booked and paid for everything. I think it will feel so surreal when i am actually there!

    are you worried about the weather and how cold it will be when we are there?

    exactly! and i knew as soon as i booked it, it would motivate me to save. I am worried aout the weather actually. i think it’s going to pretty damn cold which will definitely be a change from Australia. I’m hoping to see snow somewhere!!!!! when do you arrive in NY?

    yeah i think it will be too! it will just be like a wind tunnel in NY. I dont want to pack too much but i dont want to be uncomfortable either. I arrive on the 24th about 5pm… you?? i cant get accommodation at Marrakech on that night though so looking for somewhere else close by!

    The Grand Southern tour finishes on the 24th so I have no idea what time we should be arriving. I’m staying at the Marrakech.Let me know if you can’t find anywhere and we could maybe share the room for the night or something?

    I’m not staying at the Marrakech after the tour. I managed to stay at the Chelsea Star which is a hostel in a superior Queen room with a private ensuite for a lot cheaper than the Marrakech, about $220 cheaper!!! It is good to get to know people before you go on the tour so you don’t feel so alone. By the way, how old are you? I have spoken to about 4 or 5 people who are doing the BAE tour. Do you have facebook?
