I've been creating a mental list of 'Top Tips' for future Scholars that I will share at a later date. You know, the sort of things no-one tells you but then when they say it it's really helpful and you wish they'd told you three months ago. At the moment top of the list is: "Start planning early and don't underestimate how long it'll take you to get stuff done"!
It's nearly 9pm, I'm still at my computer in my cycling kit having been at work all day, biked home and then done over two hours of emailing, booking and planning. Will probably do the same tomorrow! Tired.
Still, on the upside, I've booked this quirky New York hotel for my first two nights - getting really real now!
