Grand Southern (LA-NY);20th SEPT- 15th OCT 2012?

15 Jun 2012 Danielle asked


Hi there!

I have booked the Grand Southern departing LA on the 20th of September 2012! I was wondering if there was anyone else out there who is doing this tour? I will be travelling solo from Australia!

Cheers, Danielle =)
