    I know hey! I plan on doing the Grand Northern first, and then the Grand Southern, only because I can get my flights cheaper that way – Ive been researhing and you can get round-the-world flights with onestop (part of quantas) for just under $4000. Thats from Sydney-London-New York-Mexico-Honolulu-Sydney. It would be an absolutely amazing holiday I think, all up I estimate I’ll be gone around 3 months. How exciting! Saving my butt off at the moment – thats why I’m going next year – cant afford to go this year because its going to take me that long to save up! :-p Let me know if you’re going – itd be nice to have someone to do the whole trip with! :-)

    Hey Kas, I was looking at maybe doing the Southern first and then Northern.. I would have to have alook at flights also to see which would work out better for me also. I haven’t made any plans as to which order just yet but once i see the dates of the tours and look at flights from my travel agent.
    Yeah would be pretty cool to know and have someone to do the whole trip with in the lead up!! :-)

    Wow sounds like you have an awesome trip planned!! Doing any other contiki tours on this trip??

    Hey! i’ve just got home from 7 and a half weeks in Europe. I did a 29 day Contiki through Europe and it was absolutely amazing! i def have the travel bug now and am keen to go again! looking at the grand southern LA-NY, leaving mid july. anyone else? i’ll be doing it alone. Next year hopefully i will be studying abroad in Boston second semester, so if all goes to plan i will be doing this contiki, flying into LA looking about California a bit and then do the tour and stay in NY after a bit to recover and see more before i head off to study and travel more!…

    hey PPPPPV, I’m looking at doing Grand Southern around the 21st of June Next year… also going solo as I did Euro Contrasts Last year which probably was the same as the one you did? I cannot wait as I also have been bitten by the Travel Bug haha

    Hey Lou,
    which tour you thinking of doing.. I’m pretty much doing the 21st of June tour of Grand Southern! would be pretty awesome having someone on the same tour!!

  • 15 Aug 2011 PPPPPV said

    PPPPPV

    Yep that’s the one i did! Contrasts- how good was it!? ah Grand Southern looks so good! you’ll probs be finished it by the time i start it! but you never know. have a good trip!

    hey jerry, i havent looked as far as specific dates yet but the 21st june sounds like a really good time to be going. im glad it seems that quite a few people do contiki by themselves, i was always worried id be in a group with groups of friends and/or couples. would love to meet new people..

  • 15 Aug 2011 JerryLangers said

    JerryLangers

    Yeah PPPPPV Contrasts was so good!!! Loved the whole thing…. Yeah Lou, Its awesome to travel solo.. I did it when I went to Europe and met some awesome people.. There’s always a large number of solo travelers on Contiki.. 21st of June does sound good hey!! ;-)

  • 18 Aug 2011 Kaznagan said

    Kaznagan

    i did my last two contikis by myself, i’m actually going to do the grand northern with a girl i met on the grand southern!!! we had so much fun!!
    only note – if ur a drinker…. plan for a bigger daily budget…… i’m not a big drinker but i was one on contiki and i wound up dropping a bit on drinks alone each day!
