    We’ve got the two days at Disneyland/Adventure Park because so many people told us we would need at least two days. Getting very excited…now it is just save, save, save! I think we are doing Universal Studios and the other Hollywood esque stuff at the start when we first get there. I just hope we don’t get that Contiki Cough we all ended up with on our Europe trip!!

    I liked Universal more cos I’m a film buff, but they’re both fun.
    If you get the chance, go to a Medieval Times dinner. It’s around 40mins from Hollywood and a really fun night if you want to do something completely different.

    Yes Courtnie lets stay well away from the Contiki Cough this time! I will be packing a suitcase of antibiotics just in case :)

    Hi everyone, seems like there will be a fair few Aussies on this tour! I’m from Tasmania, and I will be doing the Grand Northern tour with my brother, Alex. This will be his first Contiki, and it will be my third!

    We are staying in NYC for 6 nights before the tour and in LA for 3 nights afterwards.
