    Hey Kylie,

    I’m booked on this one to, it’s the first trip of a 4 month holiday for me! I’ll be flying into New York a couple of days before the tour starts and don’t know my plans after yet. I’ve done the grand southern tour a couple of years ago and have been wanting to do this one every since.

    Yeah think were both quite early booking aren’t we! Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> btw i’ve created a facebook page for the trip (http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=151683588209880).

    Cool, yeah my plan is pretty much 2 months in the USA and Canada followed by 2 months in Australia. After this trip my plan is to catch up with some friends in LA then visit San Diego, San Francisco, a week in Las Vegas (so many things there i wanna see), couple of days in Roswell, then up to Edmonton Canada and across to Vancouver, before a few days chilling in Hawaii, then onto Sydney, a few weeks travelling along the coast between Sydney and Melbourne catching up with some friends, then I’m doing an contiki which takes me up to Christmas eve, so just going to chill in Sydney for a couple of weeks before heading home. that’s the plan anyway, just starting to book stuff.

    What do you have planned while your in LA?

    Cool, what made you choose Seattle?

    Yeah I’m thinking of spending a bit more time in New York, as it was the last stop on my trip before I think I was a bit tired to make the most of it. Quite keen to go and see a show on Broadway and also thinking of taking a day trip to Philadelphia (been there before but didn’t get chance to see the Libity Bell). Need to make up my mind up soon and book my flights.

    Hey Ky,

    I get into NY on 12Sep I think. Haven’t booked my flights yet because I’m going to be in Europe for a few months beforehand so still sorting it all out. What are you doing after the tour?

  • 19 Feb 2011 Ky1987 said

    Ky1987

    How much time will you have in LA before you go to San Fran?

    kimmy_m1986

    Hey I have 10 days in between my tours, I’m doing the Grand Southern on 20Oct so I’ll probably stay in LA for a few days (maybe do the LA Explorer) then catch a bus to San Fran for a few days and then come back again for my next tour. I joined the Facebook group too :)

  • 19 Feb 2011 Ky1987 said

    Ky1987

    Yeah i did the LA explorer last time i was in LA and I would have done it again if there was one before i leave on the 15th. I really wantt o go to Universal and Warner Brothers studios. I want to see if i can catch a taping of Ellen :P I want to spend some time at santa monica and venice beach too.. The hotel will probably do tours. Anything in particular you want to do in LA? Sorry if im asking too many questions, i get more excited talking about it. :P

    kimmy_m1986

    Hey that’s awesome that you ask questions. It’s good to chat to someone who’s been there before. I hadn’t really thought about what I want to do in LA yet but I think Santa Monica and Venice beach would be on the list. And Warner Brothers would be pretty cool. I think I’m going to have to do some more research :)

  • 19 Feb 2011 Ky1987 said

    Ky1987

    lol, i did so much research before i did the Grand Southern Last time, it was good because i knew what i wanted to see before i went… But i talked about it ALL the time. My poor family lol. Now i have started talking non stop about the Grand Northern… I am now continuously researching it lol. Ah well. I cant wait to go back to NYC… I miss it so much. :P
