Travel | Trek America Countdown #4

It's finally 2015!
I feel like I've been waiting for this year forever because it means that I head off to America this year! I can finally say I go this year.

So what has happened since the last countdown post? Well first thing is that I got quite a few goodies for Christmas from my parents and sister for the trek, which are going to be super useful.

I also finally found some more people who are doing the same trek as me! We've got a Facebook group now and have been chatting loads, getting to know one another. It's got me so excited even more to find out what each of us are expecting from the trip as well as planning our first day in NYC sightseeing. Also for Emma's 21st I purchased tickets for us to go up The Rockefeller Centre at sunset on the evening we have a full day there before the trek starts.

One thing I've been trying to sort out this month is insurance for the trip. Trek America do offer insurance how I do find it a bit steep so have been shopping around. However due to the nature of the trip I need to make sure that I'm covered for certain things otherwise I won't be allowed to take part on the trip. This has meant trailing through insurance policies for hours to try and find one that covers all the essentials that are needed. If anyone out there works in travel insurance, get in contact cause I'm struggling massively!

Also now comes the big saving time! I have officially become a hermit until 4th June. Emma and I have made a list of things to do to save money but also means that we can still have some kind of social life on a budget. I've also cleared out my wardrobe and now have a pile of clothes ready to list on eBay in order to get myself some more money saved up. If anyone has any money saving tips etc swing them my way.

So that's pretty much it for this months countdown! I can't believe that it's now 5 months till I go. I just know the time will fly by and I can't wait.

Let me know your money saving tips and any travelling tips you have in the comments below.

Until Next Time...
