Last friday five of us – Anna, Saara, Matias, Janne and me – took a flight from Helsinki to New York. Our mission: drive across the great U.S. of A. The planned route would take us from New York to San Diego in eleven days. In San Diego we have a familiar rented house waiting for us in Cardiff-by-the-Sea.
The day we departed from Finland was the annual Midsummer fest but also Janne’s 30th birthday. The trip started with few drinks at the Helsinki airport for Janne’s honor. As we were flying against the time, we also managed to drink for his honor the same day in New York.
The girls have planned and taken care of all the running errands such as hotel bookings, car renting, where to go and million other details. Janne and Matias got the navigation and maps all covered. All in all we seems to be running like a well oiled machine.
