Day 64: I’m Sick, So Here’s My USA Itinerary

Day 64: Nursing my cold

Day 64: Nursing my cold.

America, I miss thee. In just a short time, I will be setting foot on your soil again, and I can’t wait. Aussie boyfriend will be in tow.

Since I spent the majority of day 64 sleeping and trying to nurse my stupid cold, I decided now is as good a time as ever to post my USA itinerary. There’s going to be a lot of short stops, and hopefully a meet-up or two in each city.

May 28 – Leave Sydney
May 28 – Arrive Los Angeles

I’ll be celebrating my 28th birthday in LA on the 29th, and I was thinking tacos and margaritas. Want to join?

May 30 – Leave LA/Arrive San Francisco

Perhaps there can be a meet-up with the San Francisco Travel Tribe members in these couple of days.

June 1 – Leave San Francisco/Arrive Chicago

There are so many people I want to meet up with in Chicago! If you’re there and want to have a night out, let me know what evening works best for you!

June 4 – Leave Chicago/Arrive Peoria via bus

I’ll be back in my old ‘hood of P-town. Party at my mom’s house? You know where to find me.

June 14 – Leave Peoria/Arrive Las Vegas

Sin City, I am eagerly awaiting your introduction. Will I be taken in by the Vegas effect?

June 17 – Leave Las Vegas
June 19 – Arrive Sydney

Home again, home again, jiggity jig.

What am I looking forward to?

  • People who speak normally.
  • Mexican food, and lots of it.
  • Proper burgers.
  • Seeing old friends and family.
  • Meeting other travelers.
  • Showing Pat my ‘hood.
  • Cheap alcohol and nights out (compared to Sydney).
  • Driving a car on the right-hand side of the road.
  • The 24 hour culture I love.

    I’m not sure what I’m doing in June but I should be around. If you have time we should totally go for a burger (I live fairly close to Kuma’s) and let me know if you need a place in the city to crash.

      I should be around then too – we should all meet up!

      Sweet girls! There are a fair few people in Chicago I want to meet up with, so I might put together a big tweet-up type deal on the 2nd or 3rd. 🙂

    If I am in CA I will totally meet you – well there or Vegas.

    Get better soon!! As fun as it is to be away, it is really nice to come home 🙂

    You said the magic word for Los Angeles: MARGS!! (and tacos too). I forgot how much I missed them when I was away and have been eating and drinking them non-stop since I got home:-).

    Totally give a shout when you are in LA! Memorial Day weekend! Should be plenty crowded, but I’ll be around. Have car, will travel!

      Sweet! Maybe tentative May 29th tacos and margaritas b-day gathering of sorts?

    All of the things that you have mentioned here are things that I am looking forward to about going home too! Now, I just have to plan it…

    How long has it been since you’ve been home? It’s been just under a year for me but it’s just hitting me now how much I miss it!
