Hey, I’m currently planning a trip to the United States. It’s something I’ve wanted to do for some time. The motives for doing the trip now, this year, I can’t expose just yet but the reasons nonetheless are result of something positive I have done for myself.
I’m hoping to be there for a month or so; I’m traveling by myself so the trip is completely on my terms as to what I see and do. I have an idea of where I want to go internally though would love suggestions from everyone especially from locals or recent visitors on where else I could go along my rough paths or what within each city is worth checking out or local tips and tricks or people that would like to meet up.
My current trip takes me from:
> San Francisco, CA > Austin, TX (maybe) > Chicago, IL > Portland, OR > Vancouver, Canada (maybe) > Los Angles, CA >
Although I would like to go to Boston as well, I’m not planning at this stage to go any further east than Chicago.
My keyword/ phrases for the trip are:
‘culture’, the ‘lowbrow arts’, ‘history’, ‘comics’, ‘music’, ‘folk arts’, ‘craft arts’, ‘design’, ‘illustration’, ’boutique’, ‘bespoke’, ‘networking’, ‘toys’, ‘books’, ‘zoos’, ‘walking’, ‘good public transport’, ‘galleries’, ‘museums’, ‘events’, ‘street art’, ‘relaxation’, … + maybe some more to come
Any one who has a suggestion or comment please either contact me by,

On Monday I was interviewed by the DScene (a local free rag) on street art in connection to the Cut Collective‘s Illegal Tender installation going up in the DPAG for the Otago Festival of Arts. Interview was ok, but I wasn’t terribly intelligible. Got called a lecturer who researches which should upset management.
