So, the fact that I'm actually going to America is finally starting to sink in, and that means lot of things to organise!
Over the next few weeks I need to;
- Finalise my itinerary and leave from work
- Start to arrange people to stay with
- Begin to make contacts with the companies I want to visit
- Draw up a budget
- Work out how I'm going to get to and from (and around) each city
I've got a celebration event organised by the Scholarship in a couple of weeks at which I'll be able to meet my fellow 2012 Scholars and also the Trustees and past Scholars - all of whom I hope to be able to ask for advice and guidance on the above.
It's all getting a bit real!
