How to sum up the best summer of my life? I don’t even know where to begin. From the moment I arrived at camp I felt immediately at home and knew that it was going to be amazing…fast friends were made, bonds were formed, lessons learned, confidence gained, overall I couldn’t have asked for anything … More Summer Summary
This is a very important post. Not only because it’s the last one that I’ll be writing while still in America, but also because it’s my 200th post! And that, my lovely blog reading friends, is a big deal…to me anyway. I want to take this moment to thank you all for reading what I … More Last Days in the US of A – Providence
Getting off the Greyhound at Port Authority in NYC after a 4 and half hour bus journey from DC on Saturday afternoon, it felt like no time at all had passed since we started our travels from that very same place weeks previously, when we boarded the bus Toronto bound. With only a few days … More Last Days in the US of A – New York City
Our numbers have dwindled. People have left for the UK and beyond one by one, leaving just a few of us in NYC. And today it was time for some more goodbyes, so we headed to the iconic steps at Times Square for a few more moments of fun and laughter.

It was an awesome day, nice to get out of Camp for a while and do something different. To prove that it was real and that Bear was actually there, we … More Photo Of The Week: When Jack Met Bear
I left my camera in the room last night so couldn’t upload any photos…so here’s a few that I took yesterday of my first (very wet) day in NYC!
…Until I leave Falmouth, the place I have called my home for the last 3 years, for good. This is it. My bags are packed. My room is empty (apart from the stuff I’ll be loading into my car and taking back to London with me), and this time tomorrow I’ll be gone gone gone.
I’ve already talked about this Apple Store in one of my Photo of the Week posts, in which I discussed how much I absolutely love this place. I think it’s definitely one of my favourites, the way it stands so tall and proud among the enormous buildings that surround it. It’s also one of the … More Apple Store Challenge: 5th Avenue, New York City
Times Square is somewhere I had always wanted to visit…it’s featured in so many films that I love, and is generally a pretty iconic place. And it definitely didn’t disappoint. I stood there in the street, twirling around in awe, looking like a classic tourist, absolutely dumbfounded by the flashing lights, honking cars and streams … More Photo Of The Week: Times Square, NYC
Towards the end of my time in New York back in 2008, I ventured out to the port to catch the ferry over to Liberty and Ellis Islands, where I discovered that this National Monument is much larger (and taller) up close than I had ever thought! It was great to actually stand right underneath … More Photo Of The Week: Statue Of Liberty, NYC
