Last Christmas, my mum surprised me with the most amazing gift: A 5 day trip to New York City following my GCSE exams. We left on the 10th of July, and returned on the 15th, and everyday since my mind has been stuck on how amazing is was.
Here are some pictures from that trip…
The sheer scale of Manhattan was very jarring. Everything was much bigger than I could even imagine, let alone fathom. I could never fit a full building into my field of vision, nor could I ever eat a full meal – the portions were so big!
To this day, it’s difficult to put words together that would justify the magnificence of New York City. It was a one in a lifetime experience to go to such a place, such a place that feels mythical in my head – I have not yet come to terms with its existence. This trip must have been a dream, because NYC feels so dreamlike as you’re walking down its streets.
It was just amazing to visit such an acclaimed city. This is one trip I will never forget.
Thank you for reading!
