Travel // USA: arrival

July 17, 2013

Hi there! I'm just popping in real quick to let you know I'm in the US for two weeks now. I have one post planned and I'll post when I'm feeling like it I guess haha. We had a really good flight with British Airways. We had a transit in London and then an eight hour flight, ugh! It wasn't that bad though, I watched Safe Haven (alright for a chickflick), listened a few times to the new album of Bastille, slept a bit and then watched the Croods (really funny).

Here's my travel outfit in iPhone pictures. We arrived yesterday by the way at 3 in the afternoon. Today we already went to Target, Sam's club and the Chicago Premium Outlet. I've watched my eyes out already! Everything is just so different. I bought a couple of candies at Target that I've wanted to try forever and we ate a quick (unhealthy) lunch at Sam's Club. At the outlet I bought two pairs of shoes at Pac Sun already, hah!

If you're interested in the candy I bought: sour patch kids (love them), skittles dark side (some are good, others I don't like), Cheetos flamin' hot (hot!), wonka rainbow nerds (not my taste), Reese's peanut butter cups (alright but not something I'd buy again) and some I still have to try. Oh and I bought Mountain Dew, I quite like it actually.

Kind of a weird post but well, I want to document these things I guess. If you have any tips by the way to do around Batavia or Chicago (or New York which we're visiting in ten days), do let me know! Are you going on vacation in the near future or did you go anywhere?


  1. How awesome! I hope you enjoy your time in the States!


  2. mmm, I love sour patch kids. :) gald you made it safely!

  3. Oh Safe Haven, dat vind ik echt een hele mooie film! En ik ben verliefd op het album van Bastille sinds ik hen op Werchter heb gezien!! Icarus is echt mijn lievelingsliedje! :) En haha Skittles dat is van die film 13 going to 30! (Als je die kent) Have fun in the USA! x

  4. Toffe, comfy outfit! Geniet er nog van! Ik ben stiekem wel een beetje jaloers. Vroeger moest ik niks weten van de USA, maar omdat mijn lief er zo graag een keertje heen wilt en ik overal leuke verhaaltjes en foto's zie opduiken, begin ik ook te keren. Eerst nog een lastminuteje naar ... in september! Woehoe :)

  5. I am so happy for you! What an exciting adventure you are on. I never really thought that Target was a must see on a trip to the US, but I do love Target so I guess I can't blame you!

    Have the most amazing time!!!
