58 Days, 14 Hours & 26 Mins

That is how long I have left to drive myself and everyone around me insane with my lists, test-packs, research, check-lists, pack-lists and more research etc!
I've already completed my first test-pack and should be due for another soon to keep my anxiety at bay!

Time has flown so much since booking! Its mad that its less than 2 months until we fly!
But its all booked and paid for now (Yaaaaaay) and just saving for all the dollar to spend on those typical (& not so typical) tacky tourist souvs that I love so much!

I was telling Emily about 'fun' must-have souvs from New Orleans in Voodoo shops including a racoon's penis bone; can imagine they sell out pretty fast!

Im the kind of person who will buy a souvenir and keep it for ever; I have a bag of pasta I bought from Italy last summer just because it has the Italian flag on each piece, and an Eiffel Tower lolly (yes you guessed it, from the Eiffel Tower!) that has basically melted in its packet but it still sits pride of place on the 'Europe souvenir shelf' in my room! 
My main thing is postcards though - I LOVE a good postcard! I think I bought over 100 postcards on my Europe interrail trip so i've set the bar high but I'm pretty confident I can beat it ;)

Also if you ever happen to go on holiday ... throw a cheeky postcard my way yeah ;) 

I am scared that i'm going to need to buy extra luggage for the way home to fit all my souvenirs in; I mean where else am I going to fit my cowboy hat & boots?!

So since booking myself & Emily have been very organised and got our shit together!
 We've made fool-proof itinerary's for both San Francisco & New York for our extra days before and after the trip ends AND booked our Alcatraz & Statue of Liberty Crown tours :)
And made lists (love lists if you hadn't noticed) of all fun sights and activities that we want to see and do in each place on our journey!
Obviously we're going to be tight for time in some places so it might be hard to do everything so I'm going to make a bucket list of realistic things we have to try and do in each place!

Now with 58 days to go I need to seriously get my fitness on because there is no way I'm going to be able to go to USA and not indulge in burgers and pizza and fries and gumbo (what even is Gumbo please?) and Tex-Mex and sourdough bread and Las Vegas buffets and not pile on the pounds. 

*You know when you go on a website so much it becomes a favourite on your internet homepage ... yeah well every time I type in 'T' in my search engine it automatically takes me to www.thecheesecakefactory.com (Y)
 I only went on it a few times (lies) because I couldn't decide which cheesecake i'd get!!
But I've found at least 3 Cheesecake Factories on our journey so i'm going to have to narrow down the choices which won't be easy :(
