I’m doing the Wild Western on those dates so we will be on the same tour. How exciting.
Where are you from? I’m 24 travelling solo from Australia. Cannot wait <!--graemlin::)-->
It will be good to know someone before I go!!
I’m from Melbourne <!--graemlin::)-->
Ah that’s great. I’m from Newcastle. Are you travelling alone or with friends/partner?
It’s getting closer. It’s only 8 months away now…sounds a long time but hopefully it will fly. I think Jan will, I’m so busy <!--graemlin::)-->
Less than 5 months to go now :)
I’m doing this tour as well with my boyfriend, we’re getting so excited about it! I’ve started putting a shopping list together of things I (have to have!) would like and places to see on the way.
How exciting!! It’s not long now!! It’s really creeping up on me!! Care to share your list? There’s so many things I am dying to do over there.
Where are you both from?
We’re from New Zealand, based in Auckland so it will be great to see more of the world!
The tips I have received so far…
In Las Vegas – go to:
Ghost Bar at the Palms
and then to the Premium Factory Outlets, The Beverly Centre and Boot barn for shopping
Also apparently www.tix4tonight.com is good for discounted tickets to shows around Vegas.
I’m also keen to go to Forever 21 and an Adidas shop over there somewhere but am sure we will have a lot of opportunities!
Hey, do you know where the meeting point is? We need to book a hotel for the night of August 9th somewhere in LA.
Only 3 months away now, so excited!
I believe it leaves from the Kyoto Grand so I am staying there the night before (well I’m actually doing the LA Explorer before it so will be staying there on the 9th as well anyway).
87 sleeps until I fly out!! Which makes it 92 until our Wild Western starts haha. BRING IT ON!!
I’ve just moved house so sorry I didn’t reply before. I haven’t looked up a lot of these places yet but I like the idea of discounted tickets in Vegas :) And shopping sounds good!!!
Hope you’re well,
Thank you Nikki!
Oh yes….I am trying to pack an absolute minimum so I can shop lots!!!
See you in 92 days then!
hi to everyone! I am alos coming to LA to the Bay starting 10th Aug. and before I am in the LA explorer – like Nikki! I am Italian, but I’ve been living in Germany for 7 years now.
unfortunately contiki couldn’t find the prenight (6th Aug) for me in Kyoto Grand Hotel, so let’s see where I will sleep when I land in Los Angeles… I guess I’ll book a room in a hotel near the airport and come to the Kyoto on 7th to meet the tour and start the tour! So happy I found someone else in the forum, I’m travelling on my own!
Hi, I will be in Kyoto Grand Hotel on 6th Aug. night, I booked a single room by myself for the prenight! If you are already there, we could meet when I arrive! Looking forward to hearing from you!
That sounds great!
We will be staying overnight on the 9th before meeting everyone at the Kyoto Grand – does anyone know what the meeting time is on the 10th?
LA to the Bay starts at 7.00 a.m. on 10th (I know it from a mail from Contiki). I will be already there from 6th evening, I’m in the LA Explorer!
Yeah I’ll be there on the 6th so it would be good to catch up the night before the tour. I’ll also be staying at Kyoto so that works out well!! I have a single room too; thought I might need it to get over the jetlag.
the same for me with the jetlag and after an 11-hour flight. I’m not planning anything special for that night, maybe just eating something before going to sleep. I should land in LAX at about 5.00 p.m., then I guess I’ll take a taxi to the Kyoto. When are you arriving?
I fly in on the 5th but it’s about 9pm LA time so will be going straight to eat and sleep haha.
so will I! I’ll arrive at about 5 p.m. LA time, but the difference between Frankfurt and LA is 9 hours… :-)
Hi everyone, I’m from Brazil and I’ll arrive 6th august for Lá explorer and LÁ to the bay. I’m also staying one more day in san Francisco after the tour ends.
@Andrea: could you book your pre-night in Kyoto Hotel, too?
