I'm Monica, and I'm about to take a trip to the US with my brother Hugh and one of our good friends Clouds. We're all in our twenties and live in Sydney. We love travel, live music, art, sport, and food. Hugh and I are both young professionals and Clouds is studying fashion design. My brother writes for the music blog Indie Shuffle and we're hoping to see lots of great bands while we're on our trip, as well as visiting Hugh's Indie Shuffle friends in San Francisco and New York. We've all travelled a fair bit throughout Europe, Asia and the US and we're really excited about heading over to see San Francisco, Washington D.C. and New York at the beginning of 2012. Let's hope we can survive the non-Australian winter!
