I arrived in one piece!

Well, it has begun! I left Australia on 16th June at 9am, and flew via Sydney & New Zealand, and arrived in LA at 10am the same day - very weird and I'm still confused as to which day it is.
Overnight in LA I stayed at "Backpacker's Paradise", which was certainly an experience! On the shuttle from the airport I met Kylie & Shane (from NZ & Aus), so we hung out together whilst we were there & wandered down to the shops to experience a bit of LA. Kylie's also going to a camp & we were on the same flight to New York on Saturday, so it was good to have someone to travel with for a while.
We got a shuttle from JFK to the International Youth Hostel, which was much nicer than the one in LA.
Then this morning I had a 7hr bus ride from NYC to my camp - there were a big bunch of Aussies/Brits going to another camp nearby, so it was good chatting to them for most of the way. I got very stressed out at the end, coz I hadn't been able to call my camp to come pick me up as the phone number I had was wrong. But they turned up anyway, so all is good.
The camp sites are beautiful & I've met some cool people already (we've just come into Hanover, New Hampshire to check emails etc - no such technology at camp). So now the fun begins - after I get a good night's sleep!
