The Weekend Blog (Vol.51)
11th April 2015
Well, that was over in a flash.
I had the most wonderful time in New York, even though I started with a cold pretty much as soon as I got off the plane. I was so worried about my hip holding up that I never even thought about coping with a cold. I’m happy to say that my hip didn’t cause me any problems what so ever. My steroid injections were the miracle I needed.
We only had three full days in New York, with the other two days travelling, but we made the most of it and I got to do everything on my New York bucket list. Well, expect for a Broadway show, but that was because it was over $350 each for a decent show because it was the holidays. And I didn’t want to go and see something I wasn’t interested in just for the sake of it.
I even got to see some famous sites that weren’t on my list, like Grand Central Station and Flushing Meadows. I was so happy when I drove past the remains of the 1964 World’s Fair at Flushing Meadows on the way from the airport because I’m fascinated by World’s Fairs.
Okay, geeky/sad moment over.
I’m planning on writing a post for each day, with photos, and sharing them every Tuesday for the next four weeks, so stay tuned if that sort of thing interests you. I’ll also be sharing my tips and advice for anyone else wanting to visit.
I’m so happy I loved New York as much as I thought I would. I’m dying to return as soon as possible and take Tyrone with me as I’m sure he will love it as much as me.
I don’t think I ever switched into New York time because I was getting up early and going to bed at about 8am. It was my cold that got the better of me. I’m heading back to Liverpool tomorrow though as I have exam workshops, coursework deadlines and an interview. Yes, an interview! It’s for an internship I applied for as a research and insight intern. It sounds quite similar to my part time job and I really hope I get it because it will help to give me new skills geared towards what I want to do in life. Plus, it’s paid!
Have a great weekend!
