Travel Diary - USA!

Tomorrow it will be ONE WHOLE year since I returned home from my three weeks in the USA - pretty crazy right? 

I'm one of those people that collects a whole bunch of random stuff whilst traveling to stick in my travel diary - so I thought I'd share some of my memories with you guys.

 Yes - this is a bag tag from my flight to NYC! How many times in my life will I get to fly into JFK?
 When we visited Coney Island there were amazing vintage postcards - I had to buy one for myself.
 I did the circle cruise whilst in NYC - we saw some amazing views of the city and of course I had a photo with the Statue of Liberty.

 When I was visiting Coney Island Voltar told my fortune - you know, like in the movie "Big".
 I kept my bus ticket from San Francisco - because I'm a total nerd. 
 When I was in San Francisco my friend Val and her girlfriend Jessi took me out to a Chinese restaurant and we had fortune cookies!
 Ok so maybe I LIKE buying postcards for myself - this one is from the amazing and completely gross Mutter Museum.
 My rail pass from when I stayed in Philadelphia with Meg!
 Alicia and I had buggy ride with a driver called Earl in Amish Country.
 I took a greyhound bus!
We stopped off at amazing place - it was more than a store, more than a cafe - it was Dutch Haven! I had my first even whoopie pie here.
 Remember that one time I went to Disney World?
 I fulfilled one of my childhood dreams by visiting Ripley's Believe it or Not in San Francisco and it was every bit as gross and tacky as I had hoped!

Visiting the USA was pretty amazing, not just because of the things I saw - but because I had the chance to meet up with so many of my friends from the big country.

As for my next adventure? Well as it turns out its just around the corner and this time Rich is coming too! In late June we are leaving for a two week adventure in Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia! It's pretty exciting stuff (I am SO looking forward to the holiday).

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend xoxox

The Mütter Museum is one of my all time favourites. I couldn't leave without buying the conjoined twin gingerbread cookie cutter. My stepson wanted me to make them as a 'new baby' gift for our neighbour, but we decided it was in poor taste. But it's a rare social occasion that demands a conjoined gingerbread twin - Bernice x

I never made it to Coney Island when I visited NYC, but I really wanted to go. I'm definitely gonna have to go next time if there's a Zoltar machine there! How cool? I keep little tickets and receipts, too. I have a box full of the things. I think I stuck one of my JFK stickers in my passport! Haha! Had to be done. I love the vintage-style postcards. And you're next holiday sounds like it's going to be amazing! I look forward to seeing the blog posts. :) xx
