Travel | Trek America Countdown #3

So today marks 6 months until the big trip with Trek America! This last month has been a good'un with regards to prep before heading off.

The main big thing that happened is that I now have a travelling buddy in the form of one of my besties Emma. After a lot of chat about if she should take the plunge and book it, she decided why the hell not? This has led to the excitement of booking the trip initially to sink in all over again, as we spent one evening watching all of Victoria from In The Frow YouTube vlogs of her trip and getting so excited about the 5 weeks we will be spending Stateside.

Trek America also were kind enough to send me a map of The USA, which is massive, for Thanksgiving. You can scratch off all the states that you have visited on the map, which make it even more fun. I'm leaving the map as it is at the moment and I'm intending to scratch the whole of the South Coast off once I've been. I am going to put this up on my wall though and create some kind of countdown/collage after Christmas to get me even more excited.

I also managed to bag a bargain in Black Friday regarding my suitcase. It was the suitcase of my dreams that I wanted, which you may remember from last month's countdown post. Yes I finally managed to get my hand on the Roxy Long Haul Case in Tropical Pink. It was a bargain, with it already in the sale at £80 then an extra 40% off on Black Friday, making it come in at under £50!! I can't wait for it to arrive as the trip will start to feel more real and I can slowly start to put items in it that are specifically for America. However I have to wait until Christmas for it, as my mum has decided to refund me the money for the case and give it to me as a Christmas present. Extra bonus for me.

The final thing that has happened this month in preparation for the big trip is that I got my hair cut! Yes this may not seem that big of a deal, but my hair had got so long and was in such bad condition that it need a big cut so it would grow nice and healthy for when I head off. I had over 6 inches chopped off which is a massive amount but it I've already had people saying how healthy it looks already. Now the process of keeping it healthy and growing my locks starts again.

And that's it for this month's countdown! I can't believe there's only 6 months now to go! I know the next few months will go really quickly as I have a few things to look forward to each month, like going to Spain for a long weekend, seeing McBusted and many more!

So just 181 days left to go!!!
