The musings and misadventures of a girl unprepared

3 weeks to go? AKJGDUHVFJYVKSH.

I'm beginning to get a little nervous about travelling now, as it is starting to sink in that I am actually leaving the country for THREE MONTHS.

So yer, excited but flipping terrified.

Aimee and I recently bought tickets to see the Miami Heat vs Detroit Pistons basketball game, which I am actually really excited about, considering I'm not usually a big sports fan. I've been told that it should be quite a good game... we haven't exactly got the best seats but I don't really think that'll matter since we don't actually know the rules anyway, so I reckon we'll be able to follow it just as well wherever we're sat.

However, I am infinitely more excited about the fact that we get to see SNOW PATROL with ED SHEERAN supporting, which is going to be A-MAY-ZING. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK :D


*swoons* :)

ANYWAY, we've also booked all our buses and hostels, so can breathe a little easier about all that. I was having such a massive panic about finances, so getting that sorted felt brill BUT I just got all my taxes back from Fat Face which the greedy taxman stole, which means I got paid £700 this month. Which is AWESOME.

Currently trying to research things for under 21s to do in the US - more specifically New York, if anyone has any suggestions? Apparently the Hard Rock Cafe is pretty cool on weekends but apart from that I can only find like jazz bars etc. (Which I'd love but I'm not sure if the others are into that sort of thing).

On the Peru side of things Evie and I have booked our first hostel, first coach journey which is TWENTY ONE HOURS and hostel at Machu Picchu (whoop whoop!). So if that initial coach journey doesn't kill me, from then on we are literally just winging it. I am yet to decide whether or not this is a good idea, but I suppose I'll find out when I get there. Wish us luck eh?!

P.S. I promise that once we actually set off, these blog posts will be a lot more interesting :)


  1. Sounds fab Emily :) and as for the basketball game.. often the "worst seats" turn out to be the best! Whenever I've been to one we've been towards the top but it just gives you the entire view of the court and they have massive TV screens showing it close up everywhere anyway! xx

  2. Ah that's good to know, thanks Lou! :) That's prolly a better way for us to follow it anyway, it's more the atmosphere that I'm looking to experience :)

  3. Now all you need to do is to learn what the hell basketball is :P
