    hi there! I fly out on the 30th april and arrive in downtown LA (;/) on the 30th. I will be leaving the day after the trip ends aswell from the same place on the 15th May! Its good to know that there are other people travelling solo! Is this your first time travelling solo? I was a little concerned, as I will probably be the youngest on the trip as I will be 21 when I go !!

    Hi, Oh ok cool. Were are u going after the trip ?? Yeah it is. No this is not my first time travelling solo. I have travelled solo before but this is the first time I have ever been on a tour like this so not to sure what to expect. But also looking forward to it, meeting new ppl etc. I turn 27 on the 15th of may so everyone will have to come out and celebrate my B’day. lol.

Hahaha and definitely celebrations will be in order—- happy birthday—for then—-what a way to spend it eh?? How did you find travelling solo for the first time? x

    a few years but not many. Well when I travel i usually don’t do tours just organise where and what I want to see and just go. Much better way to travel as you don’t have dead lines and to be places etc when you don’t travel on a tour where as this contiki tour we have like one day here and 2 days there. Just different to what i usually do thats all. Not flying out of Heathrow, I’m Flying out of Brisbane, Australia. Def will be celebrations, Thanks :) u can wish me happy b’day then. lol. I found it grt. Just wish I had someone to talk to thats all. But you’ll be fine, I’m sure there will prob be a few solo travellers like ourselves and at least you know i’m a solo traveller.

    Oh see I fly out to New York on the 15th may pretty early in the morning too I believe. Shame you don’t get to see a bit more of the country. I’ve been talking to a mate over there and he is going to try and get me a couple of tickets to a baseball game in San fran for when we are there. Fingers crossed he can get some tickets.

    AW awesome!! From OZ?! that is soo cooool! always wanted to see Australia, you lucky bean! Sure I would not feel confident enough to just book things as I went, kinda like the idea of stuff being arranged for me on a first time tour on my own- I wouldnt know where to begin! Yes it is great to know that there are other solo travellers- i know that plenty of ppl do travel on their ownsome, but its great to speak to ppl that are actually doing your trip ;) And baseball games?- that is amazing!!- cant go to the US with out seeing a game- even though I dont have a clue about how the sport works aha ;P Ah OK, yeah i am flying to and from LA either side of the trip- I think that the trip in itself is big enough without fitting stuff around it- if i were with someone i would defo go New York.

    How much stuff is organised on the trip do you know? I am not 100% how much free time we have where I will have to make it on my own ;/
    And are you on Facebook? If so, would be great to communicate through there aswell as here — my name is VICTORIA DUFFY (from London)

    Yes I’m on Facebook (full name ‘’Stephen Collins’’) yes i agree to make a Facebook community page, my previous European Contiki tour did one, works very well, Oz usually dominates Contikis!

    I arrive in Los Angeles on the 26th April, i stay in the tour accommodation the night before and night after the tour, I’m staying at a hostel at Hollywood/Highland for 4 nights before the tour
