    When you'll be traveling, it will be a good time for American sports! Try to catch a MLB baseball game or a pre-season NFL football game! You could probably get tickets at a fairly reasonable price.

    You should definitely be able to get MLB tickets at a reasonable price, almost anywhere but Chicago (for the Cubs) and Boston (for the Red Sox) as they are normally sold out. NFL pre-season games however, may not be so cheap. They charge just as much for those tickets as they do for regular season games (this coming from a season ticket holder who has to buy them as part of the package). For example the cheapest NFL ticket for the Redskins is in the $70+ range.

    Also, today I renewed my passport (and was condemned to the world's worst photograph for ten years!)

    Don't worry you're not the only one, I think we all hate our passport photos.

    I am so jealous of your trip and working as a CM Josh, can't wait to hear all about it when you get there :)

    I hate my new one. Dreading it coming back through the post. I'm more gutted that all my really cool visa stamps from China & Hong Kong will be gone from my passport as well as my one from Orlando & New York :sigh:

    Thank you :) I'll let you know my travel plans when I have them finalised.

    I thought I'd give you all a bit more of an update on my planning stages!

    I've booked my flight, arriving in Orlando at 6:05pm on the 24th of May I have a connecting flight in JFK and I'm Flying British Airways economy. I would have liked PE but for the sake of saving money I decided to go economy. I've booked my seat for the NYC>Orlando leg of the trip but for some reason I can't reserve my seats for the Manchester to MCO!

    I've booked my VISA interview for the 11th of April. I'll have to travel down to London to get my VISA so hoping the trains aren't too delayed as a missed appointment is the last thing I need!

    My appointment is at 11am but thinking of changing it as if I go an hour later I save over £100 on my train fare! :mental:

    Term dates are different up north than they are in London and as such I've only gone and booked for the first day of Half Term! It's going to be very busy :sigh:

    My Hoody for the airport finally arrived! We all got Hoodies that matched so that we could spot each other in the Airport. Will post a picture soon!

    It is all coming together nicely! Great idea about having matching hoodies. Careful now, that's how Gay Day started... a group of friends all meeting at MK that first Saturday in June deciding to wear red to spot one another and presto! Gay Day is born. :lol:

    Have a wonderful journey Josh! I know this is going to be a great experience for you. :yes:

    Here is a pic of the hoody logo. I designed it so it's a bit weird seeing my design 'in person'!

    Josh,
    Can you tell us yet where you'll be located, or no? Or have you posted and I miss it?
    I'm so excited for you! :)
