Anyone else booked on to this trip? I'm 22, from the UK and travelling alone so would be good to meet people before we head off!

    I’m doing the same one!
    I’m Alex, 22 and from Australia. I’m traveling with one of my friends, Heather.
    It’ll be my first trip overseas and it’d be great to meet you before the tour starts! We arrive in NYC a week before the trip starts.
