Eastern Escapade 9th Sept???

16 Jul 2011 danc asked


Hey! I've just booked on the Eastern Escapade leaving New York on the 9th September. I'll be a lone traveller so keen to know of anyone else who will be on the tour. Also planning to stick around in NY after the tour, what are others planning to do?

    Hey, I’ve just booked today. Leaving everything to the last minute!
    I have 2 days at the Contiki hotel in NYC before and after the trip.
    Can’t wait!
    Where is everyone else? There must be more people on the tour.

    Hey, good to hear from someone else. I have actually spoken with one other guy too so to my knowledge there are now 3 of us. He is from the uk as am i so its nice to finally add an international flavour to the group. I have actually created a facebook group for the tour but sadly up to now have been on my tod. Please come join and hopefully it wont be long before there is a good group of us!

    Great, can you please post a link or name of the group so that I can search it.
    I know last time it was great that many of us talked beforehand, you kinda knew someone on the first day.

    Hi, I’ll be a lone traveller on this tour too. I’ve never done anything like this before so I’m a bit nervous but mostly so excited :D
    I’ll be coming into NYC on the 7th and flying out on the 24th.

    Hey guys

    I just booked the tour today – very last minute. I’m 26 and from Wellington, New Zealand. I’m going on a two year secondment to Norway. My work permit just came through yesterday so haven’t been able to book anything until now.

    I fly into New York on the night of the 8th of September and have to extra nights in New York after our tour.

    Look forward to meeting you guys soon!

    In Austin it doesn’t matter if you are with your uncle or your parents, as you are a minor and will not be allowed into any club that serves alcohol.
