Hey guys,
Anyone else doing the Best of USA - 19 April 2012 - 2 May 2012 departing from LA?
I'm 22, from Sydney, NSW, Australia and i'm travelling alone on this trip.
I'm spending 3 days in LA before the trip starts and 2 days in NY after the trip finishes then off to Vegas for a week afterwards.
If anyone else is on this tour as well, i'd love to know!
Thanks guys,
Ell.xx

    Hey Ell!

    I am hoping to get my leave approved at work this week but I should be booking onto this tour in the near future :) How long are you travelling for all up? You just hitting up LA, NY, Vegas, along with San Fran which is on the tour?

    I’m from Perth and will be travelling alone as well. At this stage, I’ll probably be in LA for 2 days before the tour, and in NY for a day after… You made any plans in those cities pre and post tour yet?

    Good to already know a fellow Aussie on tour :)

    This is my first time overseas, and the trip i’ve wanted to do my entire life. Needless to say I’m a tad excited! Am going solo too!

    Me too Jess!! You are brave for going alone, but I hear alot of people do it!

    I am now officially confirmed this on tour too :) Second big solo overseas trip for me – I did 3.5 months going around Europe and to Egypt 2 years ago.

    Haven’t worked out my pre and post tour accommodation yet. Likely to be 2 days in LA pre and 1 day in NY post as I’ll be in NYC for 4 days earlier on in my trip visiting a mate. Is everyone just staying at the Contiki hotels before and after the tour?

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for letting me know. :)

    I am going alone too Jess, this is a trip i’ve wanted to do FOREVER also. I’m soooo excited.

    Do you guys have facebook? I was thinking about starting a facebook group for us all to join and chat on before we go.

    What do you think?

    Thanks,

    Ell.

    I was thinking of booking into the Contiki hotel in LA, but then choosing a different hotel to stay post Contiki in NY. A facebook group would be cool :)

    Yeah Facebook group sounds good! Worked really well for the 45-day Ultimate European Tour I did in 2009 as we got to know each other and organise things well in advance :) Good to know there is a few of us staying pre and post so I won’t be wandering around LA & NY by myself!

    Hey guys,

    No worries, i’ll organise the Facebook group for us then.

    I will stay Contiki hotels before and after too. ITs the Skyline Hotel in NYC isnt it? Do we know the hotel in LA?

    Thanks,

    Ell.
