London is where I spent my teenage years. So, it's home.
Before I head off for all the fun and food of the US of A, I'm going to pay my parents a very, very short visit. This will be the first summer that I am not spending with my parents and family back in the old country, Portugal.

My other wonderful and definitely most native home city - Porto.

It will also be my second birthday without any family around. I'm turning 22 in New York City instead this year.
Hopefully, with some delicious New York cheesecake!

I really hope that my wish for "cook-outs" wherever we go will come true. And these are some useful tips.

Raring To Go

2 days to take off

rain

Tomorrow morning I officially give up my key and I will never see the first place I called home in Copenhagen.
It's not sad.

The guy I live with is a constant pain in the ass, be it for the way he looks - over-buff and bald and short (meh) - or the passive aggressive, childish way he acts. I will miss stealing his instant coffee and the occasional smidgen of mayonnaise. Although it was always light mayonnaise...

I also just finished recording my first semester evaluation presentation for my first school exam, but as this one "doesn't really count", I mostly still did it so I can see what sort of grade I'm at and how hard I should work next semester. I'll be in New York City when my classmates are presenting their exam. Which is SO much better!

All I really am right now is tired. I'm so tired of Copenhagen and school and the same passive aggressive people. Day in. Day out. I feel like I really deserve the month and a half in the US and all the food I'm going to eat. It's going to be such fun!

If I wasn't so sleepy and tired, I'd totally join the Calvin & Hobbes happy dance.

Really want to go on a plantation tour when in New Orleans. Check out this post about Oak Alley Plantation.

This bag looks great and the proceeds go to a good cause!

Packing Everything and Nearly Going

3 days before take off

overcast 11 °C

This year is THE year.

I'm taking my first transcontinental flight.
I'm couchsurfing for the first time after having a profile for a couple of years.
I'm backpacking properly.
Camping for the second time ever.

And I just can't wait anymore!

I booked my tickets nearly 6 months ago and the plan has come to take shape for the last couple of months.
This is my first big summer abroad and I'm doing it with my ex-boyfriend, from whom I broke up a couple of months ago.

This is going to be interesting. To say the least.

--------------------------------------

I finally packed up all my belongings into my smallish suitcase. Filled two canvas bags with any leftovers and I'm leaving quite a few books and my little bin behind, because I can't take everything with me. Everything is tucked away in a friend's basement for the next couple of months.
I cleaned everything, washed everything and probably will do it all again tomorrow, because I booked my flight for the evening, but it'll be really good to try and get a much earlier flight, because I still have a lot of things to deal with before leaving for the US.

Chicago - The Windy City

Still need to find a host in Chicago, our first stop, and it's proving to be quite tricky. Either people are declining or just plain ignoring me. However, I do have a "maybe". I just don't want to bother the guy, because he's clearly quite busy. The search continues...

Beautiful St. Louis

Memphis!

That said; we pretty much have hosts for the 2 cities after Chicago - St. Louis, MO and Memphis, TN. Which is great!

And this is great advice!
