It’s mid April 2012 on a Monday morning. I’ve been travelling to work for two hours so far, had to stand all the way on the overground then had to push my way onto a very busy Victoria line and be squashed up against a man that smells like he slept in a pub cellar. When I finally get off the tube I see the poster below.
The following few months they start popping up everywhere, announcing things like ‘10.5 million spectators coming to the 2012 games’ and ‘the Vitoria line will be busier than usual’, so Mr S and I decide that we were going to go on holiday for the duration of the Olympics and avoid our daily three hour commute all together.
It was really difficult to decide where to go, but we finally settled on an American trip, spending most of our time in New York. We usually go to new York every year in late September for a long weekend, and we absolutely love it. It will be great to be able to relax and enjoy our extended time there, exploring the museums and generally living the New York Life (without the work ;) ).
I can’t believe it’s come round so quickly, we are all packed up and ready to leave for the airport in an hour…We will be starting off in a hotel in the Upper East Side, plenty of trips to the Guggenheim.
I took this photo on the day we bought my wedding ring awwww.
At some point during our stay will be visiting Frank Lloyd Wrights Falling Water in Pennsylvania. I’ve loved this house ever since I first saw a photo of it and can’t believe I’m finally going to visit it.
I will keep you all posted on my adventures. Do you have any tips on things we should do/ places we should visit?
