When I was planning my trip around California, Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon, I was daunted.
I had been on Asia time for 6 months and was used to organising everything last-minute. Therefore, when it came to booking car rental, accommodation and campsites before my trip to Cali, I was a little unprepared.
To my dearest friends, family and fellow culture cravers,
Since my last Postcards Home post (read it here) I’ve gone from the tranquil beaches of Koh Chang in Thailand to the manic, palm tree-laden streets of California – both exotic but both OH so different.
I never expected to be nervous to travel somewhere which speaks the same language as myself and that, in general, is very similar to my home country.
Nevertheless, as I waited to board my flight to LA, I was cacking it.
