    Trust me 6 months will go super quick, you’ve just got to keep yourself busy!
    I actually wanted to go later but due to the dates of the tours I had to bring my plans forward by 2 months which is much sooner than I anticiapted but still I’m not complaining!
    And I bought my USA guidebook today so I can plan the places I want to go in free time :)

    hello! is it still warm in sept? i am looking at doing this tour but would like a summer this year as new zealand weather is abit crazy atm, thanks :)

    Hi Alesha,

    It will be the American autumn (or fall as they call it) and being up north I think some places such as Canada, etc could be quite cold, although this is my first trip to America so I’m just assuming that’s how it will be. Other places such as Vegas may be warmer as they are closer to the desert so I guess it could be a bit of a mix.

    I was meant to be going to NZ in March but unfortunately that has been put on the backburner for now. I’ll get there eventually!

    Hey Kimmy – I really hope your right about the time going fast i am so excited :)

    Welcome Alesha. When i was in America in 2009 i was there in Jan – Feb right in the middle of their winter.
    LA was around 23-25 celcius every day, so it was beautiful.I think on this tour it will be cool weather but i like it like that lol.. As im from Perth all we seem to get is Warm to Hot weather. So im looking forward to it.. I really hope you choose our tour.

    How have you all been going anyway? LOL

    Hey Kylie,
    I’d like it to become a definited departue too since my flights are all booked and paid for and it’s part of a 5 and a half month trip for me!
    I’ve been going good, just counting down the days. It’s only a month until I leave now! Spending 3 months in Euope before heading to the US, can’t wait! :)
