for my American Bucket List trip

This is one of those 'by the time you are reading this' posts...

By the time you are reading this I will be on a plane, in the air...somewhere...

But for now, right now, I am sitting at my friends place in Sydney madly scrambling to get this post written before it's time to head to the airport wondering why I insist on being so disorganised when it comes to my blog!

I must confess it feels like this trip has been a long time coming and I can't believe it is finally here. It's been over a year in planning and many years of dreaming before then!

So my rough itinerary, is that today I fly direct to Nashville (small stopover in Dallas). It's a 15 and a half hour longest ever flight (apparently currently the longest international flight possible I am told) so I am little anxious about how I am going to cope and how severe the jet lag will be but will just have to deal with that when it hits!

I spend a week in Nashville for CMA Fest!!! This festival is ever country music lovers dream! All the big time American and International Country Superstars in one place. I get goosebumps just typing those words!

Australia is representing with Morgan Evans and a few others playing small gigs around the Festival. I met Morgan last year at his concert in Toowoomba and he is not only an awesome guitarist and singer, but also a really nice guy who had plenty of time for his tragically adoring fans!

After Nashville, I fly to New York and have 5 days to explore the City. I have already mapped out a rough itinerary for this time and it is already jam packed!

Then I head off on a 28 day Top Deck Road Trip USA tour, where highlights include Washington DC, Miami, Florida Keys, Orlando, Panama City, New Orleans, Grand Canyon, Las Vegas and finishing in LA! (who am I kidding the whole bloody 28 days will be an amazing highlight!)

A few days to kick around LA before heading off to Canada, where my main aim is catching up with friends I haven't seen in a long time!!

So there you have it! My plans for the next 3 months! Make sure you join me on my Facebook Page and Instagram to keep up to date on all my adventures as that's where I will be sharing snippets of my trip while I am away!

What have you got coming up in the next few months? Have you been to NYC? 
What's your number one tip?
