Who is doing "The best of USA" in Oct/Nov 2011

6 Mar 2011 Tina asked


Hi All,
I have been dying to do this trip for the last 3 years and everytime I get close to booking it my friends I plan on going with end up ruining it for a million different reasons. SO this year I have promised myself that I am going with or without them. Obviously I would rather have a good friend there to share all theses amazing memories with but I am willing to go it alone if need be.
Just wondering how many people actually go on these tours and if they found they made friends easy and still had a great time. I'm a little worried about travelling by myself. I don't want to be lonely or feel as though I missed out on a good time.

    Hey Tina! (I just replied to your other post about travel money also!) I’m doing this tour on my own, already have spoken to 25 of the 50 people on my tour via facebook (we started a group page) so don’t worry about being on your own you’ll definitely make friends, and possibly before you even get there like I did! :)
