preparing for the big usa trip

It's exactly a year today since I took 5 weeks of unpaid leave from work and then took a 3 hour bus ride from Ipoh to KLIA; flew 4 hours from Kuala Lumpur to Hong Kong, transitted for 2 hours at HKIA and flew another 14 hours from Hong Kong to San Franciso. That's a total of 21 hours of travelling with a 16 month old toddler from a warm tropical country to 14° Celcius weather!

I was exhausted by the time we arrived at San Franscisco but was super excited to start our journey after 6 months of planning! Look out November, because it's going to be all about our journey from the west to the east of Uncle Sam's territory.
