I cannot believe that this time next week I shall be on my way to New York, hell yeah! Just over three years ago (wow, I feel old writing this) for my 18th birthday I was given the trip of a lifetime to stay with my Auntie in Chicago. Whilst there, we had a little vacation to New York to see some family and friends, and I absolutely loved it. The only negative part about the trip to NYC was the weather. We travelled there during the peak of a heat wave, and it was just way too hot to do much. So, this time round, my Mum was adamant that we went during a ‘cool’ time of year, and October seemed perfect! I cannot wait to go there! I really do love America, and perhaps could see myself living there for a year or two in the future.
I’m not too sure what we’re going to get up to, although I do know that a must is a visit to the Morgan Library and Museum to see the Crusader Bible exhibition (see here). How typical that I can still manage to fit some medieval orientated things to see and do! I studied the Crusader Bible last year in my ‘Death and Devotion’ module, and thought it was beautiful, so I cannot wait to see the real thing in person. I’ll definitely be blogging whilst I am there, and before going about the potential things that we will get up to. If you have ideas, or know of anything cool taking place in New York in late October, leave a comment below!
Also, I found some photographs that I took last time I was in New York from the top of the Empire State building, aren’t the views amazing!
