Hey All

My name is Kristian, I'm from Newcastle and this is my first Contiki tour, hoping to touch base with anyone doing the same tour. Also Ive booked my hotel for two nights in New York but my flight gets in a day before so if anyone can suggest a place to stay for that night i would appreciate it.

    Hey Kristian

    I’m staying at the group hotel where we are leaving the night before… don’t know the name, but my tour operator booked all…

    Hey Noemi

    Was wondering where everybody was, good to talk to somebody else on the tour. Im staying there as well for a few days, are you in New York for long?

    No, I’m arriving only the day before we are leaving

    Cool. Well if were at the same hotel, have to see if they have a bar and catch up the night before the tour.

    sure! :-) in which hotel you’re staying?

    Courtyard New York, Manhattan/Upper East Side 410 East 92nd Street. Ive been in touch with family over there and Im actually off to see the Counting Crows that night, Im not sure the time but I will probably miss the Kick-Start Meeting at the hotel at 7 but I will try and make it. Otherwise I’ll cya on the bus. :)
