As I implied in the Mother’s Day post, my next “bigger” travel destination will be New York! And the trip includes a four day stop-over in Reykjavik too, which is a completely new destination for me!
I’ll have to be patient though, the trip won’t happen until November. Some people have judged the traveling time, who would want to be in New York when it’s cold? Well, I do! I’ve been in New York once in summer, so now it’s kind of cool the see the winter and Christmas magic of the Big Apple. Plus, what better time to shop for Christmas presents? And after all I’m traveling from Finland, so it can’t be worse. 😀
Anyway, it’s a long time to go yet, but this week it started to feel a bit real already, since we have been hotel hunting — with good results. Now we have everything booked for New York and Reykjavik, so what is left to do, is just waiting for the takeoff…for months…. Oh, it will be a long wait!
The trip is my parents graduation gift for me, so I’ll be traveling with mom. I think we’ve never been out of Finland just the two of us and it’s my moms first visit to the US. Exciting!
These pictures are from my first visit to NYC in 2008. It was just a couple of weeks before I heard that I was accepted to study photojournalism in the university. Little did I know about photography and about what was ahead, and now I’m a master of photojournalism! I hope the pictures will turn out at least slightly better this time. 😉
