Don’t panic, this isn’t a thinly veiled threat. I’ve finally been granted a tourist visa since my misdemeanour 17 years ago.
For so long I’ve watched my friends enjoy holiday’s there whilst I’ve never being able to go, but I’ve finally been granted a reprieve. It expires in January 2015, but after that I can apply again and eventually get one for a few years to avoid the drawn out application process (it’s been a year waiting for this visa)
With so many destinations (and cool people) to see it has been a tough choice on where to go first. I had New York at the forefront until that was vetoed by my other half, and I would love to see New Orleans and Austin, but these will have to wait for a future visa. For now I am probably going to plan a trip around California later in the year, I live in London and it won’t stop raining, I need me some sunshine.
I can’t wait – I finally get to try Funyons.
Get ready America – I’m comin’ (I now imagine the whole country simultaneously drawing their curtains and hiding behind the sofa pretending to be out)
