Hey, I have just booked to come on this tour starting July 19. I will be flying solo and I am from Australia. Would be great to get to know others beforehand :)
great to have sog on the trip.
It is quite a long flight forq you. Do you stay some days longer in the US?
Yes, it is quite a long flight. I have 5 days prior to the tour in Huntsville Alabama at a space camp and then 1 night in New York, then after the tour I have 2 nights in New York before flying home.
Do you have any extra time in the US? Have you been there before?
I arrive at the 15. and have 4 nights in New York before our tour and 2 nights after (flight on the 2.).
Do you also stay in the Courtyard Manhattan from 18. to 19.? 7am is a inhuman time to start…
What is your hotel in September?
This will be my third time in the US. Last year I made a trip in California, Las Vegas, some parks, … with a similar aged group, but not Contiki. I really enjoyed it.
Oh lovely :) I will have a familiar face around :) I am also staying in the courtyard Marriott before and after the trip. Maybe we will be able to catch up before the tour starts? I agree – 7am is not a good start time especially when you are on holidays hehe.
Your previous trips sound awesome :) I love California – I have been there twice previously. Mostly for Disneyland I will admit.
I am really looking forward to this trip :)
Do you also stay in the Courtyard Upper East side? I just saw there are several courtyards in Manhattan…
I stay only the 2 nights before our trip – later I am in Metro Hotel 35th street. But I am sure it’s easy to meet somewhere…
Do you know someone else on the trip?
Yep, I am in the upper east side :) I have heard it is easy to get around in New York.
I have briefly spoken to another girl on the trip, but I am flying solo. So you are the first person I have really had a chance to chat to. Do you know anyone else on the trip?
I share a room with the same mate like last year in US – room partys are garanted ;-)
Let’s start a facebook group for this trip – will make it much easier to stay in contact. The name is “USA-Eastern Escapade (19.-31. July 2013)”. So come and join.
Sounds great :)
Unfortunately my Facebook skills are nt very good and cannot find the group.
by the if you look for me, search for Christian Mxller…
Holping forward to see you
Look forward to talking :)
I am coming as a solo too! I am also from Australia. I’m having two weeks prior to the trip in Toronto at my Aunt’s, and then 5 nights in New York. Great to know someone else is going to be solo!
