Complete. Bayous to Beaches. The 4 state Alien Free Adventure October 2019
 
Welcome to another Wiley Fest. I am writing this as much to remind myself what we are doing as its all, well, a bit "fluid" as they say.

Unusually it is less well planned than normal so frankly anything can and probably will happen




I am not even printing anything to take with me as we have no firm day plans (oh such rebellion)

Pre Trip to follow imminently . I am sure it will all make sense then

But in the meantime. This is what it looks like today . Sort of. Maybe.



I do also appear to have a ceiling light growing from my head. But after last years Alien adventure thatís really no surprise is it :pgig:

Pre Trip nonsense here
Food trip here. Calorie counters look away now

Sounds fabulous! We usually have detailed plans for our trips, but didnít last time and it was very liberating. Enjoy!

Sounds brilliant Amanda, looking forward to reading this x

Fuellady 14 Sep 19 05:01 PM

Yay, you started. Having an index is a good start, right? :grin: You made me laugh about the light fitting growing out of your head, I do hope it doesn't have to be surgically removed :d:

How fab that you're going back to New Orleans, it seems to be a place that has taken hold in your heart. Lots of new places as well, some I've never heard of so it will be interesting to read along.

Never mind finishing the plan, get the pre-trip posted instead ;)

Goldia 15 Sep 19 07:58 AM

Wow this is going to be an epic trip. I'm glad that you've admitted the truth to both yourself and to us that you've not done a proper plan :pgig: although for someone with no plans it looks like you're cramming in quite a lot.

I hope no other light fittings attach themselves to parts of your anatomy. I laughed at that part too :d:

I'm really looking forward to seeing more of NOLA, have a total blast. I think you deserve it.

Thank you. Yes it is liberating but a teeny bit terrifying as we do rather like a plan:erm:

Ha ha Abby, we are looking forward to it. It still has that air of randomness on some days. Like day 18 when we just canít decide whether to head back to Orlando or not. Life on the edge huh.
I am excited now for all the yummy food and drink and new places:D

Ah thanks.
Well it didnít quite turn out like the plan, but it was still fab. And New Orleans was third time a charm. It never disappoints us !
Unlike our Airbnb :omg:
Liking the sound of those upcoming trips :thumbs-up
