Planning

IMG_1242Some pictures from the past week which have mainly involved prepping for our 7 week holiday. Keep up on instagram as we travel across the USA (LA, San Fran, Chicago, Boston, New York and DC) and UK (undecided/everywhere), you can follow me at Rachie_TLC.

In more important news, my case is only 12kg, which leaves 11kg free!

My packing action plan is maybe full on, but 7 weeks away from my wardrobe is upsetting to say the least. I used a list app, and packed minimal shoes (4 – for me this is minimal).
My clothing list was this: 20130121-104825.jpg

If you have any tips or tricks for us let me know in the comments.
It’s been emotional!

This Week

IMG_0974Happy New Year to everyone! I have so much coming up this month and I jet off on the 21st, follow me on instagram – Rachie_TLC to follow my travels, as well as 365 days of photos. My new years resolutions are simple and stuff I had started prior to the new year anyway – Take more pictures, walk more (I already walk about an hour most days, but I love it so much I want to do more – good walking trails in LA, San Fran, Chicago, Boston and New York would be so much appreciated) and make more dinner for friends. This is how the last week of 2012 looked. Much Love.
