I can't sleep at the moment.
When my head hits the pillow my mind is ticking away and stirring around like crazy as I tick off lists in my brain, attempt to plan out days to places I've never been and worry a little bit that I might not actually buy anything once I get to America (although really, like that would ever happen).
That's right! I'm heading to the states with Brad and take off day is awful close. I'm a perfectly competent traveller, and can jet off to Asia for a weekend jaunt with no problems any old time, but America somehow has me nervous, maybe because it's that much further?
Maybe because I'm half convinced Brad will leave me when the full charge of my shopping mania power unleashes itself?
Or maybe it's because I just don't have enough days to eat everywhere I want. We have 4 nights in LA and my excel list is already 30 rows strong. Hmmm. How can I invent more stomach space in a short amount of time?
Here's Chai helping me out decide where to eat. Or just block me from typing.
Have no fear though, you'll be on the ride with me, as my trusty SLR is packed, along with a point and shoot for those speedy meals on the run, and a shiny new kikki.K notebook (yay mid-year sales!), to make sure I remember what everything tastes like. Although I could probably just say 'bacon' for everything and be somewhat accurate right?
Brad and I will be hitting up LA, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Rochester (NY) and of course, New York City. So if you do have any suggestions, please feel free to leave me a comment or send me an email if you're a little bit shy.
In the mean time, I'll be (attempting to) scheduling a few more Melbourne posts to hopefully cover me while I've gone...although I've somehow nearly cleared up the backlog...le gasp!
