Hi guys,

    Hi =) My friend and I are planning on doing the Western Highlights starting on the 16th. We only decided today though lol so we still need to book but we’re pretty certain that we’ll be doing it. We’re both from Australia as well =) We’re planning on getting into LA around the 12th/13th then continuing on after Vegas to New York and Florida and maybe other places we haven’t completely decided yet but we thought it would be fun to throw a Contiki in too!
