My gosh, it's been a while since I last posted, I've been really
busy with settling into a day job and revolving everything else around it! Who knew a 9-5 could be so tiring. Well I think I'm getting the hang of it now, (9 months in lol). Well anyways during the time I have been away, I discovered the amazing land of New York! After years of wishing to go there I finally got the chance to, in November of last year! You're probably thinking why the hell it's taken so long to get this post up and im wondering the same thing too!
Heres some of the pictures I took whilst being there...
On to the Parade it self! Now im not going to put up many photos
of this as i took hundreds, quite literally! I think I came home from New York with just over 1000 photos! I think I went a bit mad! lol.
and crowds of people, everyone was so friendly!
The New York Skyline from the top of the Empire State Building was stunning. Below is a birds eye view of Macy's with their tree lit up. Macy's is magical at Christmas as they have little scenes from a chosen story displayed in each window. I've never seen something so wonderful! If you think that Harrods in London has nice chirstmas window displays, you deffinately have to see Macy's Windows. It puts the Magic back into Christmas! Truely wonderful.
My mum and myself decided to treat ourselves and go to a Broadway show. I always wanted to see The Lion King in the theatre after seeing an exhibition in London. The exhibition showed some clips of the theatre production and some of the costumes were on show. The costumes were AMAZING! and this was the inspiration to go see this show. Boy was this show good. It was so spectatcular I was gobsmacked and so overwhelmed
when it finished that I actually cried.
my very own wotnot muppet, at FAO Schwarz.
all I can say.
overwhelmingly sad place. I cannot believe that it has been almost 10 years since the World Trade centre collapsed. Truely devastating, my heart goes out to anyone and everyone who had a loved one involved with this tragic day!
sculpture would have been located in the Plaza of one of the buildings and still remains strong. This sculpture was a symbol of World peace ironically, but now stands tall to give hope and translates the indistructable spirit of this amazing country.
Statue of Liberty. I was so lucky to get this photo head on.
amazing looking building, the architecture is brilliant from inside as well as outside.
And we left in style too. This was our car to take us to the Newark airport. Reminded me of Mr. Big, from Sex and The City. Which is why I have a picture. I Love it!
I cannot wait for the day that I go back to New York.
