Travel Tip Round-up and Plans for Adventure

I can hardly believe that on Saturday I’ll be flying from Australia to New York. Thanks for such wonderful travel tips in my last post, to help me prepare for my trip to BlogHer. Apparently there will be 4,500 bloggers attending…wow! Please say hi if you’re going to be there – and if you’re heading over from Australia please let @Nellbe know as she’s hoping we can get a group photo! I’ll be packing my passport, a few favourite dresses, good walking shoes, lipstick, a sense of humour and a portable recharger for my phone!

Here are some of my favourite links from this week.

So now that I’m almost organised…what do I plan on doing once I’m there?

I’m looking forward to discovering a new city, meeting new and old friends over some delicious meals and getting lost in all kinds of art. I’m hoping to meet people (and brands) who are finding creative ways to live extraordinary lives in the simplest ways. I think I’ll remember to take lots of photos. And then I hope to continue the inspiring conversations and connections once I’m back.

Yes, I will miss my boys. A LOT. A week will fly by though, I’m sure and I know they are in good hands with Mr Wonderwebby.

Boys are making Plants vs Zombies "for real life!" Love it when they play like this.
(see these Plants vs Zombies figurines? They surprised me with a crafty interpretation of their favourite iPad game recently!)

What do you enjoy most about traveling? The people or the places?
