"New York, New York. It's a Wonderful Town"

The song was in my head (from one of my favourite musicals) as I tramped the streets of New York.  My eyes were wide and my neck was aching taking in the sheer scale of the place.  Thrilling, with a sensory overload that left you wanting more.

I absolutely loved New York.  We were there for a week and it was, well, awesome. (Sorry, I know the work is overused, but I think I'm allowed it here.)

Some photos to illustrate:

City Slippers - London visit

I wish!  My feet always take a beating when pounding city streets.  Anyway, we went up to the big smoke of my birth earlier this summer to visit dear friends, and did a public transport odyssey that only London can do.

It is, actually, quite a cool city really.

There, isn't that nice...
