NUCW - Southern Cross Country Westbound

Postby ellien » Fri Jul 18, 2014 10:20 am

Hello!

I'm looking to book on the Southern Cross Country Westbound trip (as a solo traveller) within the next couple of days, and thought it would be great to speak to others that have already booked or have been before!

I'm looking at the trip departing on the 11th of Sept. Any advice with regards to packing, hotels before and after the trip, or spending money, would be greatly appreciated!

Ellie :)

Hello Ellie

Did you decide to book your trip on 11th September? I'm booked on a Southern Cross Westbound but mine is departing later in September (27th).

Im planning on staying in san fran for a few days at the end and see alcatraz.

Hi guys,

I am going to be booking the trip leaving on the 11th sometime this week!
Ali, even if we're not on the same trip, it'll be great to chat about luggage and stops etc. because I have so many questions!

Gareth, nice to meet you! It looks like if you and I both book, that we'll be on the trip together :) I'm definitely planning to stay in San Fran for two days after, and New York two days before also. I have read around though, and it seems that the tickets to see Alcatraz are almost always sold out, so I think it's best to buy them before you go.

I'm from England and I'm 21, what about you two?
Hope to hear from you soon :)

Hey Ellien, i booked my trip yesterday and am really looking forward to it :)
Heading off on september 11th !! , not spending any extra time in New york as ive been there a couple of times before.
Spending 2 nights in SF for sure and have booked the alcatraz trip for the day after we arrive there just to make sure. More than welcome to join me of course :wink:

Im from Dublin , Ireland and am 33.

if you want to chat more about the trip give me a shout and we can help each other plan for it.
mail me here or gardublin1981@yahoo.com

lets hope there are more out there going too , that we can get to know before we go. that would be good fun.
