So, our USA trip is fast approaching and I thought I’d fill you in on where I’m with my preparations. Also I can use this to figure out what I still have left to do. I work shifts so I have sort of more time to get stuff done, but sort of less (it’s what happens when you don’t have regular days off like week ends but you do get the odd week day off to go shopping).
We leave at the end of March and will have an annoying trip from home to Manchester Airport, before we even get on a plane to go to New York. So we obviously have our tickets by now but we’ll need to check in and I need to get boyfriend to print them at work. Along with that we need print out our train tickets, to get from New York to San Francisco.
I’m not totally crazy, and I haven’t started packing yet but I will soon start planning my outfits. I do this with plenty of time so I can make sure everything is washed before I need to pack it. I used to live in a house share and I couldn’t rely on the washing machine being free so I had to give myself an extra week. I now have a house (technically it’s boyfriend house but still) and a tumble dryer so that makes life easier. I do want to buy a new suitcase. My one is really heavy, it’s pink which is the reason I bought it (!), but a pain to drag around.
I’m going to get some little toiletries, boyfriend tells me not to because I can use the hotel ones, but in Italy the hotels only had shampoo and not conditioner which was annoying. I need to get my dollars (exchange rate sucks right now), and I’ll need some little snacks for the airport. But I shouldn’t need to get to much more.
