    Hi Sam,

    I know this doesn’t exactly answer your question, but my partner and I are booked on the LA-NY Grand Southern departing on 24th October :) So we might cross paths somewhere in the middle of our tours.

    Waiting until October is the hardest part now huh?

    Maybe! im not too sure if they work like that but would be cool! have you been on a contiki before? i did the western highlights last year had an amazing time :) yes october seems like forever away but at least gives me a lot of time to save spending money!

    hmmm pearls of wisdom for vegas… id say play the tables not the machines if youre gambling and if you just wanna drink and party make sure u give a generous tip with your first drink and you will be looked after for the rest of the night! works wonders! i dunno if i could get a can of v past customs but pretty sure i could rustle up an industrial sized bag of good old pineapple lumps haha

    Kirstie

    Hahaha yeah I am so excited! What date do you fly back??

  • 12 Feb 2013 Sam said

    Sam

    day after grand southern ends so we wont be on the same flight if you are doing explorer! might be a good thibg for you though as you will most likely be thoroughly sick of the sight of me by that point haha

  • 13 Feb 2013 Kirstie said

    Kirstie

    Hi guys! I’m doing the eastern discovery tour on 18th October which is the first half of the grand southern tour. Did the southern adventure last year (the second half of the tour) and it was bloody amazing! Also doing the New York explorer before but I’m not sure if that tour is a guaranteed departure yet…
    So looking forward to going back to New Orleans. We’ll be there when it is Halloween so that’ll be pretty cool. Need to save up my money!
    Also, some of the tours do cross over so there is always a chance to see other contiki groups.

    Kirstie
