Final push

Well I'm back at uni now (four days in and I'm completely exhausted). One more term (and a whole load of exams) till summer starts! I have something a little extra to look forward to, because...


I'm going to the USA (for the first time ever) in December! A week in NYC (thus the guidebook), and then the two weeks over Christmas with my aunt and uncle in North Carolina and Ohio (I have been promised roadtrips). I'm particularly excited about the prospect of a white Christmas. Any tips/suggestions for NYC in particular?.


Martin Place during golden hour, as seen through YY's sunnies.


It has been more autumnal than spring-like after the couple of warm days we had last week. But it's meant to be 27 degrees tomorrow, so time to ditch the grandpa cardigan and bring out the dresses (well, until next week, when it gets cold again).

  1. What a great selection of places to visit in the USA. I visited New York for two days a few years ago but we mainly visited the major landmarks so I couldn't give you any tips on those special little places to go. Have fun though! I can't wait to see some of your photos.

  2. Pack warm. I've never been to New York, but coming from England, where we do get white Christmas weather, but not as cold as New York, but moving to Los Angeles where it is always like the weather you get, I know I'm going to die of cold eventually moving home!

  9. Yaaaay, exciting! I'd say you can't miss the MoMA, a walk through central park, eating cupcakes from magnolia bakery (I reeeeally recommend this, it's bloody fantastic), visit Barnes & Nobles because it's cool, see the empire state building from the rockefeller aaaaaaand... well... hm, go to a broadway musical maybe because... you're in New York City :p

    Good Lord, you make me want to go travelling again! It's so exciting you get to go to various places and have a road trip and whoa, you're holiday is going to get extremely awesome. I'm looking forward to the stories and pictures already!! :D

  11. Oh oh oh!! You're going to New York in December?! That's the best time to be there. :) Be sure to visit the cupcake shops! Especially Crumbs. And Sprinkles. And Magnolia. They're all delicious ( though my fave is Crumbs). And definitely stop by the Metropolitan Museum of Art! As well as the MoMA! And go to FAO Schwartz! Oh my gosh, I have so many places - please e-mail me if you wanna know more. I go to school near NYC, so I head up there a lot. ^^

    1. You guys will have to do New Years without me, I'm leaving the US on the 30th and arriving back in Sydney on the 1st, so I'll be spending NYE in some weird time warp thing.

      Haha I'll try, just for you.

  16. Yay! You're going to the US! How exciting! I guess you know how I feel about that, I love going there! But I haven't been to NY though (I hope that will happen in 2013 though) :) But yay, I'm so excited for you!

  17. How exciting going to the U.S !! I might be travelling at the end of the year as well :P I've also been loving the weather lately though its been difficult to ditch the cardigan with the drastic change in weather haha xx

  18. I live pretty close to NYC so I visit all the time! It's really a lovely place to be. It's somewhat crowded in December, but it only adds to the holiday cheer! I love visiting Times Square and all of the shops there. The Empire State Building is fantastic; you get the most wonderful view of the entire city. I've always wanted to go ice skating at the Rockefeller Center. And if you go close enough to the holidays, there's this beautiful Christmas tree right next to the ice skating rink! It'll most likely be a lot colder than Australian winters, so bring warm clothes. :) As for a white Christmas, it hasn't happened in quite a while around the NYC area, but it's definitely a big possibility! :)

    Have fun on your trip. And do keep us updated! x
