Happy 4th of July, America - See you next weekend!

I'm writing this blog post exactly 10 days before i head there, after finally receiving my 10 year visa!

My oldest pal from school is getting married and his fiancée is helping me make secret plans to surprise him by showing up as an unexpected groomsman :D

What better way to begin this exciting trip than a VIP invitation from the US Consulate to attend the 4th of July celebrations in the city?!

US goodies and schwag!

Off i go! Don't judge me by my choice of wrist wear, thank you!

Super excited to attend the wedding and meet my buddy Nick Gray in New York City!
