Goodbye Money ... Hello USA

So today was the day I handed over (in the form of my debit card) my hard-earned cash and paid for our USA trip! (not for both of us, I'm not that generous - and really it was just a deposit and flights and hotel but its a start!)
It wasn't as upsetting as I thought it would be, I imagined a single tear role down my cheek as I silently battled a tantrum on the inside as they confirmed my payment and say goodbye to money I'd happily been watching accumulate over the past weeks, but alas no tears or tantrums ...  just excitement because the trip is now REAL


So now the countdown has begun (212 days to be precise) to finish saving, buy stuff I need, buy crap I don't need but want, pack, pack again, probably pack several more times and thats before we're even into 2015! 
I love packing, such a thrilling activity. 

I was about to start this paragraph with 'So' and then realised I've done that twice already :( #writersblock #synanymsforso 

I told Emily I had writers block and she laughed. She doesn't understand. 
I'm trying to persuade her to start a blog too 'E Explores Everywhere' ;)
 I think she's starting to warm to the idea! 

She sneakily found my blog today, I haven't advertised it to anyone I know yet or really told anyone because I wanted to have a few more posts before I did but she got it out of me. 
Norti Emily! 
She said it was witty, which is good .. better than shitty anyway! 
Or maybe thats what she said and I misheard :/ 

(I've gone off on a tangent I feel) 

Anyway the trip is booked and its all very exciting. 
G Adventures Coast to Coast Road Trip Eastbound 
And we've booked on the 4th July - 26th July trip! 


We've added an extra 2 nights in San Fran and 1 extra in NY to maximise our mad-tourist-sight-seeing-souvenir-buying :)
