"Seven months in the USA" LeaJoy's Profile

I've been an Au Pair (a really cool name for an exchange student/ babysitter) for seven months now, and I'm loving every minute of it. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be able to visit everything I planed (Las Vegas and Los Angeles are definitely off) but considering how much the Au Pairs are payed, I'm doing pretty good! :)
I have bunch of pictures from San Francisco, NYC and the D.C. but it will take me forever to post them here. Don't have time, gotta change diapers!! hehe

A "must see" list

I'll be staying in the USA for a year, and so I think that I absolutely have to visit:
1. NEW YORK (because of the city's energy, culture, the Statue of Liberty, Times square, SoHo, ice-skating in the Rockefeller Center ..
3. LAS VEGAS (The City of Excitement, I'll let you know if I win a jackpot :)
4. NEW ORLEANS ('cause of the varieties cultures, Jazz, Mardi Gras...)
5. ORLANDO (because of the Disneyland, no way am I going to miss that :)

Ok, so I wrote this down when I was still at home in Serbia, and obviously, I was overly optimistic! :) There is no way that I'll manage to see all of the above, but I'll do my best

    Serbia is a very nice country, has some most beautiful churches specially my favorite was the sopocani monastery. I was have a lot fun at Kopaonik. And the food was the best of the trip, specially in Belgrade :p
