Montana, The trip here

Well I finally found a few minutes to blog about the trip. We set off for Montana at 8.55am On Tuesday, we were all up incredibly early, so when we arrived at Manchester we were all already pretty tired.

The flight down to Heathrow was relatively quick, and once at Heathrow we all began to wake up a little. Here's a few of the guys chillin in the departure lounge.


Then we got a complete stranger (who happened to be American, strange that, in the departure gate for a U.S flight) to take a group shot.

Don't we all look lovely?!

The flight to Denver was LONG. And by the time we were half way through we were all getting really tired. I managed about half an hours sleep, but the plane was just too noisy.

By the time we landed in Denver I was exhausted, back home it was the early hours of the morning, and I'd been up for almost 24 hours. So you can imagine that things got pretty silly. I get really giddy when I'm tired  and this was a whole new level of tired! Rebecca and I were feeding off of eacxh nother and at one point decided that Ludwig was the most hilarious thing in the whole wide world! Not sure why now. 

Anyways, I took some photos in the airport, mainly to try to keep me from feeling so jet-lagged.

Apparently if you're naughty in Denver airport this is what classes as a riot-van! ;)

And I couldn't resist this as a photo-op!

When we finally landed in Missoula I was too tired to even lift my camera, so no pics. We got to the hotel around 28 hours after we left home. And I have never been so grateful for a bed!

OMG! OMG! OMG! and lists.

OMG!!!! There's only a week to go! I'm getting so excited it's unreal. I'm supposed to be studying for my exams but I'm too distracted. There's lists that need to be made.

See I'm a list kinda person. I made a list of things I needed when I went shopping for this trip. Now I need to make a list of things to go in my suitcase. Then there'll be the list of photographs I want to take. Then the list of photos I want to blog. Lists, lists, lists. My whole life is organised by lists.

I've never been the "fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants" type of person. I need everything to be planned and organised and scheduled well in advanced. I know it drives my friends crazy sometimes, but at least they know I'm always prepared. (I've been told I would have made a wonderful girl-scout).

Of course this need to plan everything is now intruding on my study time, because all I can think about is what needs to be on those lists. Often writing the lists down helps but his time I fear that I'll still not be able to settle. I'm going to be neurotic this week, it's OK though, my family love me anyway. ;)
