Contiki USA Q&A

I currently don’t have any travel plans (sad I know) so I thought I’d take a look back to my Contiki Tour and answer some questions I wish someone answered for me when I traveled to the states 🙂 This is more aimed at the Contiki I did and America in general. I did a High Energy Tour…

Contiki Vs. Top Deck Tours

I’ve been wanting to write a blog post about these two tour companies for ages! When I was in the stages of planning my trip around the world, I knew I wanted to do a tour across the states but I was having a hard time deciding what one. I’d heard so many different views…

Day 34 New York! Feat. Philadelphia

Today was the final day of Contiki 😥 Everyone boarded the bus one last morning with all their bags and we all sung the morning song one last time. The morning on the bus was spent sleeping for me. We stopped in Philadelphia for a look around and some lunch just before 12pm. A little…

Day 33 Washington #3

My final full day in Washington DC. To be completely honest I wasted half the day sleeping in and then didn’t get out of bed till like 12pm. I missed the football game I had signed up for and instead had some wonderful shut eye. It was nice not having to run and catch the…

Day 32 Washington DC #2

The next morning, I got up and ready and headed down to use the Subway to meet my friend Ethan so we could go exploring. After trying a pretzel for the first time (not terribly great to be honest) we went and learnt some stuff around Washington D.C I think we only saw one museum on…

Day 30 – Raleigh

On Thursday it was off to Raleigh! It’s the capital and the second most populous city in North Carolina, after Charlotte. Raleigh is known as the “City of Oaks” for its many oak trees, which line the streets in the heart of the city. As I’m writing this blog 3 days after being in Raleigh my memory…

Day 29 – Savannah (Georgia)

I want to live here! Savannah, Georgia is just the nicest little town. When we arrived on Wednesday we had a walking tour organised but as we were early we had to wait around in Forsyth Park for a bit. The park was just beautiful. The sun was out and even though it was probably a bit…

Day 28 – St Augustine

We headed off to St Augustine on Tuesday morning. We had a pretty big day as we stopped off for 5 hours at the NASA space centre in Florida. There’s actually quite a lot to do at the Space Center that I didn’t even end up seeing everything. I went with Marisa and a few…

Day 26. Miami #2

On the Second day of Miami I lay in bed and had a great snooze until 11am. I was slightly worried that I was actually the only one on the whole tour who had decided to sleep in and everyone else was out exploring the highlights of Miami. In my head I had visions of…

Day 25 – Miami

Miami. Where everyone drives nice cars and looks like they came out of the TV series nip/tuck. I love Miami. The weather changes it’s mind every 2 hours and it’s humid as fuck but it’s still wonderful. The Uber drivers are the nicest so far and the clubs are playing the latest music the loudest….

Day 24 – Orlando #2

On Friday Morning we were up early to get ready for a day at Universal Studios! We had to be on the bus by 8am to get to the park around opening time. Quite a few of us rushed to the park so we could get to the front of the line before anyone else….
