    Thats a bit exciting yeah just have to see whats happening. But will book it soon. Who you flying with? Are you having extra nights before and after the tour…

    Ashlie

    I chose this tour date so i would have enough time to save. I’m flying with V Australia arrive in LA at 7.45am on November 24th so im having an extra night in LA and an extra night in New York hopefully other people will stay longer so theres people to hang out with after the tour.

    Ali & Ben

    Yeah thats why i am choosing that date so i have lots of time to save. And it will be cooler. Well im staying 3 days before in LA and then 3 days after in New York just incase i missed something, Now the saving begins.

    i wish i could afford to do that! At least i know someone will be there when i get there! I want to go on a tour on the first day im there! How much spending money are you planning on taking?

  • 7 Feb 2011 Ali & Ben said

    Ali & Ben

    Well thats my plan hopefully i can save enough. Not sure about spending how much i can save i was hoping about $3000…! but not sure. Did u get your flights for a good price?

  • 7 Feb 2011 Ashlie said

    Ashlie

    im not really sure if i got them for a good price or not since this will be my first time overseas but i paid $2295 for flights with V Australia.Singapore and Qantas were like $3000. Im trying to save 4000 grand spending money but im not really sure since this is my first ever Contiki. When you were in Europe was the shared accomodation ok?

    Ali & Ben

    Yeah thats the hard part trying to save the spendingmoney. Yeah i went with my friend so i was always with her and you meet so many people so we ended up sharing rooms with a few other girls and we became really close by the end. Most of is it shared rooms for 4 people sometimes even more. You will have so much fun.

    Awesome way to celebrate finishing your exams. I think im only staying an extra night in New York but i will be in New York for 2 extra days. Where abouts are you travelling from?

    Ashlie

    Who are you flying with? I’m flying with V Australia on November 24th leaving melbourne at 12.15pm and arriving in LA at 7.45am

  • 20 Feb 2011 Ashlie said

    Ashlie

    If i could i would have stayed longer but its hard to get time off work and i would have to be very strict with saving. How much spending money are you looking at taking?

  • 20 Feb 2011 Ashlie said

    Ashlie

    Yeah i am.. what about you?

  • 20 Feb 2011 Ashlie said

    Ashlie

    Thats great, at least i know i wont be the only one there early. I’m hoping to do something on the day i arrive but im not sure how long it will take me to get through customs and to the hotel.
