Booked it for my 21st. It's my first contiki and first time to the states. I'm hitting it alone and will be spending two days in LA beforehand, staying at the grand kyoto and another five days in NY afterwards. Anyone going on this trip?

    na i turn 21 two weeks before. i was going to go on the tour before ours so i could be in the states for my birthday but i would have turned 21 after we left vegas and thats not cool.

    you going alone?

    JerryLangers

    haha yeah can’ be having that! need to be able to fully experience Vegas!

    Yeah i’m going solo also! there is always a heap of solo travelers on Contiki so it’s pretty good and easy to get along and make friends :)

    Sounds like we have to have a few birthday drinks in LA before the tour!

    Hey guys!!!

    I’m from Adelaide and I too am going on this tour!!!

    I’m staying at the Kyoto also for 2 nights before the start of the tour than a week in NY at the end!!

    What day is your birthday? I turn 22 on the 25 of June!!

    It would be great to chat to some people before we go as I’m traveling on my own and it’s my first time out of Australia, so pretty scary (and exciting!!!)

    hey yeah this tour is getting some numbers up which is good!

    Explorer1303108, sounds like were having a party bash for you on Tour!! :-D Also looks like were all traveling solo at this stage and yeah facebook is always a good place to chat and get to know each other before tour! j_langers@hotmail.com is my email.

    I’m thinking there’s definitely going to be a pre-tour catch up.

    I don’t have Facebook at the moment but if anyone wants to email me privately my email is: jessroesler@hotmail.com. Be great to talk to others who are going :)
    Where are you from Jerry? Have you booked your trip yet?

  • 10 Oct 2011 rhi_ said

    rhi_

    ahh! this is so so cool.

    jess – my 21st is on the 27th of may so a little bit before but that’s so cool yours is on tour. huge party! :D
    what day do you arrive? i get there on the 19th which is two days before so it’s looking like we getting there on the same day too! get facebook!

    Explorer1303060 – don’t think about it, just do it. it’s gonna be a blast. i’ve been out of the country before but i don’t think it’s going to compare to this. my travel agent did this trip a few years ago and she said it’s basically just a huge party for 26 days and the only time you sleep is on the bus.

    holy crap. i am so excited it’s ridicoulas!! we should all definitely catch up beforehand. disneyland or something. lol

    JerryLangers

    hey guys! yeah I have booked Jess! I haven’t booked flights as of yet but i’m looking to be in LA a few days before the tour and im also staying at Kyoto…. I’m from Melbourne and cannot wait for this trip!!! A mate of mine did this earlier this year and said it was awesome!!

    Got to be a pre tour catch up! Disneyland sounds like a plan ;-)

  • 10 Oct 2011 Jess said

    Jess

    So we might be on the same flight!!! I’ll let you know when I book my flight :)

    And yes Jerry a pre tour catch up sounds like a great idea!
