So I have spent the past month slowly piecing together things for my next trip, I am still not 100% sure of all the dates and locations. It will be a quick trip only a month (working within school holiday constraints and a wedding I wouldn't miss for the world). But here is my rough plans: Sydney - New York Having Christmas in NYC on my own (one thing that I go from being excited about to really unsure about, though I think I would regret not going more than not having a good Christmas in NYC) New York - Bozeman Montana Spending some time in West Yellowstone, exploring the park, seeing old faithful. I am wanting to do some snowmobiling and possible some snow coah tours, explore the wolf and grizzly discovery centre. Bozeman - LA Spending NYE in LA, a podcast I listen to on a weekly basis and have done for the past 3/4 years does a live NYE show, so hoping to be spending it watching that. LA - NYC Meeting up with a friend and spending a week in NYC, its her first time in NYC and I am looking forward to just doing a few different things from last time. NYC - Orlando Meeting up with more friends in Orlando, plan so far to do Universal and possibly some shopping (its a quick 2/3 day trip so no Disney this time round ) Orlando - Jamaica Going with my 3 other friends to an event called back to the island - its a music event, and the thing that kicked off this whole trip planning (was planning Africa instead) Jamaica - Toronto I wanted to see Niagara falls but I looked into day trips from NYC and wasn't a fan of the time schedule or the price tag, so decided I would just go to Toronto for a few days, see Niagara and some of Toronto Last stop Hawaii - this was a last minute decision and only because Hawaiian air is the cheapest option for flights, so it seemed to make sense in my head to spend a few days by the pool before returning to real life. The only part that is super locked in at the moment is NYC - Orlando - Jamaica sector and I am hoping once I finalise dates and finally book the flights the rest will fall into place. I know it seems a long way to go across to the west coast just for 2 things, but Yellowstone was a big pull for me doing this trip and initially when I started planning I wasn't doing Christmas and was flying direct into LA so made much more sense at the time.
