This is going to be the trip of a lifetime! Personally I think it's going to be torture waiting to leave and I'm sure the 6 weeks we're spending over there will feel like 6 minutes....
Anyway here's a rundown of our trip:
We fly out on September 11 - what a day to fly to America huh? We spend our first two nights in New York doing our own thing before meeting up with a New York Contiki tour that goes for 3 days. Once that finishes we meet up with our second Contiki tour group for our Grand Northern tour. This tour goes for 25 days and goes through New York, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Maine, Quebec, Ontario, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Utah, Arizona, Nevada and California.
After we finish that tour we are spending 6 nights in Anaheim so we can explore the theme parks (Disneyland, California Adventure and Universal Studios) and have a look around Los Angeles. From there we fly to San Francisco for 2 nights where we will visit Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge. Finally we fly to Hawaii for 3 nights! Our hotel is right on Waikiki beach!!!
We then fly back to Australia getting in on October 22.
