    Ooooh, look at you with your fancy-pants new luggage! So, so exciting 😀

    That caramel is a bloody mess, I tell you. BLOODY MESS.

  3. Lisa @ bakebikeblog

    so so exciting!!!!

    I would love to try this too salty chocolate. Salty chocolate is my favourite!

    Your travels and braveness to explore the world are inspiring. Surely that bag is too small for all your gallivanting? My handbag is bigger than that:)

  5. Lisa @ Blithe Moments

    Oh new luggage is so exciting. When it is all fresh and unscuffed by whatever monsters live behind the scenes at airports to move luggage. Love it.

    And extra salty chocolate sounds good to me, I was the one Australian not completely revolted by salted licorice in Denmark – they like things supremely salty there.

    I love the bauble on the side of your head. Will you be taking that in your new carry-on or wearing it on your head as a bold statement? The chocolate looks delicious. Enjoy your dinner at the fancy restaurant xx

    well at least you will be able to go and tell Trader Joe in person – I am sure he will be very happy for your expert feedback 🙂 You may even have to do some more taste testing while you are there!

    I wish you a fabulous trip Hannah! You said you’re coming to my country – Canada… but you mention America here. Does that mean you’re visiting both countries?! Do you have a post that talks more about your trip in details? YOu’ll love Trader Joes and Whole Foods! 🙂

    gah!! I’M SO EXCITED FOR YOU!!!!!!!!! 😀 hope you have a smooth flight and trip there! And let your adventures begin!!!!!

  12. Kath Lockett

    Ooooh – want the chocolate AND your swirly patterned carry on. We’re discovering that sensible black is rather difficult to pick out from the other hundred versions of sensible black both in overhead lockers and on the luggage conveyor belt.

    Back to the chocolate – looks like the perfect snack for leg one of your flight!

    Have an amazing trip there, started off by this delicious chocolate 😀

    I am getting so excited for you! 😀 That carry on looks great, I loved shopping for new suitcases, feels like such an adventure is happening. 😛

    Did you lick your suitcase? You never know, it might actually be salty. 😉

  15. Kari @ bite-sized thoughts

    Oooh, fancy pants luggage! How could the trip not go well with that sort of carry on bag? Such splendiferousness 🙂

    This chocolate looks pretty fancy too, so I am sorry to hear about the excess salt. I do like that last photo, though, as the caramel looks kind of like a mouth. I’ve just entertained myself for quite a long time imagining it into a face. Which probably means afternoon break time is over and it’s best I return to work 😛

    Mmm looks rather salty, like something from the sea. Glad you’re kitted out and my goodness on countdown time! Breathe breathe breathe. The best thing about big trips is sitting down in the plane and half an hour into the flight realising that nothing matters and everything that comes next is unstoppable. Drink lots of water and don’t play Cave Man! Xx

  17. Louise

    I’m so glad the preparations are coming together. Enjoy the gallivanting.

  18. Emma

    I’ve been meaning to go to Trader Joe’s so that I can purchase this bar, for the mostly sole purpose that I love the packaging.

    It’s about time that everything falls into place planning-wise. Now you can spend your remaining time enjoying that fancy meal and hugging your parents long and hard:)

  19. Joey

    It’s worth going to American just for Trader Joes – love that supermarket!

  20. theresa

    I’m excited that you’re excited! And I’m excited about your new luggage, and your chocolate, and I’m also really hoping that the giant bird-bus-plane isn’t your mode of transport!

  21. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Aww soon you’ll be in the land of Trader Joes and peanut butter!

  22. Shannon

    !!! soooo I know I’ve been MIA (lots and LOTS going on) but I’ve saved all of your posts I hadn’t yet read (13 actually) and of course, JUST read the one where you announced you were heading to the US. Best of luck and safe travels dear… and definitely let me know if you end up in Boston at all!

  23. Margaret

    I’m so glad everything is coming together for you.
    Soon you’ll be able to buy everything in the Trader Joe’s brand! (Lucky girl).
    I’ll be thinking of you on Thursday. xxxx

  24. Sig

    Mmmm I knew I’d love this after my new-found love of dark chocolate and sea salt but I think caramel can tend to be overpoweringly sweet.

    But can you believe you will have a TJ’s that you can go to at ANY TIME?! Perhaps you can ask Mr Joe why he designed a package so terrifying 🙂

    Thursday my darling!!!

  25. Asmita

    This chocolate looks wonderful!

  26. elise

    ok, obviously i m a salt fiend because that TJs bar is my absolute hands down very #1 chocolate. loooooove it.

  27. Caitlin @ livelovenyc

    oh man, my fave. although, it is the only TJs chocolate bar I’ve purchased (so far)!

  28. leaf (the indolent cook)

    It does look a bit salty. Now to see if you will have further salty adventures abroad…

  29. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    You look adorable! I like your style. I’m going to call it “urban comfort.” Leggings go with everything.

    Sorry your chocolate was a salt lick. Just think of all the chocolate bars you’ll inevitably be gifted with on your trip, some of which will surely blow your mind.

  30. Richa@HobbyandMore

    Oooh i must get my hand on this.. i love salty chocolate!
    great to hear things are falling into place!
