The wait is finally over and the trip to L.A. I've been talking about for so long is here! Next week I'll be boarding a plane in preparation for and eleven hour flight (gulp) and by Wednesday afternoon I'll be setting foot in the U.S. for the first time! Facing the task of packing for a week away in a climate a whole lot warmer than my usual was quite the daunting task, but I've broken it down into some easier to swallow chunks that have not only made the process a little less overwhelming for myself, but may come in handy for any others struggling to pack for a trip away!
