Hi Tegan! I’m so excited that more and more of us are connecting on here. When’s your birthday? Mine’s also after the tour - on the 27th of August! It sounds like this is going to be the first solo trip for many of us. I can completely understand the nervous/excited feeling - I am leaving in a little over a month and am starting to stress! Haha. I’ll be in NYC from from 26th of July so I’ll definitely be there when you arrive. I am so jealous of your two friends who live there - not that I’ve been before but I have a feeling I am going to love it! Haha. That’s such a shame about their schedules… I hope you at least get to spend SOME time with them!
I, along with two other girls doing this tour, are staying at the Night Hotel in Times Square which was the cheapest we found at the time of booking - even cheaper than hostels! One hostel that was recommended to me a lot was Pod51 so maybe check the price on that too?
Are you spending your entire 4 weeks in NYC? I leave and fly to the West Coast literally straight after the tour ends but I am back back in NYC from the 23rd of August I think, to celebrate my birthday! So if you’re still around then we could perhaps meet up again?!
Can’t wait to meet you too!!!
