With just under 9 weeks until we board our plane to Boston it is becoming completely real that this trip IS happening.
With all the important things so far dealt with; i.e flights, car rental and accommodation the conversation has turned to a completely new subject. What clothes are you taking? This has been the topic of our conversation so far today, because it’s never too early to start planning and I mean, just what do you take with you when you’re going to travel America for a month?? If I’m being completely honest though, I haven’t thought about it at all and probably won’t until about a week before we’re due to board our plane from Glasgow.
What I have been thinking about is the things that are next on our list. Now although all the main things have been booked there is still a few things we need to book (which we plan on doing in the next week or so) and they are things like, booking Alcatraz, escape games in Nashville etc. The little things we’re adding to our trip that we want to do and experience.
I just keep thinking ahead to this trip and what is waiting for us.
As some of you may know, it was my birthday about 2 weeks ago now and my best friends (that are coming on this trip) got me America related things. Dollars for a start and also a journal for our trip.
I’m so excited to get over there and start using it. It’s filled with pages full to record your trip details.
- Who is travelling.
- What vehicle are you travelling in.
- Starting and ending points for that day.
- Your mileage start/finish.
- How many miles you’ve travelled that day and throughout the whole trip.
- Your stops. (Which city. Whether it is for food, gas or a sight).
- Any souvenirs bought or any other costs.
- Amount spent that day and throughout the whole trip.
- Which states have been visited that day and throughout whole trip.
- Licence plates seen that day.
- Best part of the day.
- Daily notes or pictures.
The thought of being in America, driving through the states with my best friends making some incredible memories. It makes me want this trip to hurry up something awful, but at the same time I’m seeing how quickly it is coming around and I know it’s going to have been and gone in no time at all.
For me, this trip is going to be one of the most incredible experiences of my life. Shared with some of the most amazing people in my life.
