So, its 2 weeks until I start my american adventure and I can't believe how quick its come around!

In the last week I have planned quite a lot and created a huge shopping list for things I want to take with me. I've managed to get about half of the list so far, then I realised most of it was silly, and I don't want my suitcase to be too heavy so some stuff I will get when i'm out there. 
I've got a list for Walmart that includes getting a sleeping bag and travel pillow, as although i'm doing a Budget Lodging Tour which isn't camping, apart from our hotel and hostel nights, I believe we will stay in cabins and 1 night in a trailer park which we will need sleeping bags for.
I'm slowly working my way through the list, but still have some essentials I'm hoping to get in the next few days, so that i'm all organised for my trip.

In addition to this I ordered myself a New York Pass, which arrived very promptly. 
If you've not used one before, its a useful and cheaper alternative to visit lots of tourist attractions in New York. It allows you one visit to certain attractions, including the Empire State Building, Statue of Liberty island, Top of the Rock and various other places, museums and guided tours. It is a set price and you can get it fir certain amounts of days e.g. 1, 3, 5, 7 days it makes visiting places a lot cheaper than it would be if you bought a ticket at each individual place. In some places it also allows you to skip long ticket line queues. I have used one of these before and it is great, I highly recommend it for New York visits. I can wait to start using it and see lots of places I haven't visited before.

I have also created my itinerary for my New York visit, it includes walking over the Brooklyn Bridge, spending some time in Central Park and museums, as well as Top of the Rock and lots of other places. As well as seeing some big tourist sites this time in New York I plan to spend a lot more time wandering around and really seeing the city as theres so many areas I have never seen, despite having visited on 3 other occasions. I can't wait for the New York part of my journey, I will be spending some time alone, getting to explore and am hoping to catch up with some friends who I haven't seen in years, which is all really exciting.

I still have other parts of my journey I want to create itineraries for, particularly Los Angeles and Las Vegas. As I've never visited these cities before. I've got lists of places to visit, I just need to organise the amount of days I have for sightseeing and plan these to make the most of my time there. I've got to get a move on as its only 2 weeks until I start my holiday of a lifetime!!!!
