Happy Snaps

I won't bore you all with a million photos from my travels but here are a few highlights:

The Strand Bookshop!!! I was ridiculously excited to visit The Strand (to the extent that I made my best friend & travel buddy mark it on our NYC map four months ago). Not only was it one of the most amazing bookshops ever, a book by two of my favourite authors, Dash and Lily's Book of Dares is set there, which added an extra layer of excitement for me. I limited myself to an hour there (maybe the hardest moment of the whole trip), but oh my goodness - the books!!! I was seriously roaming around the store, practically hugging the walls.

Dreams really do come true at Disneyland, where I got to meet Ariel (and my five-year-old self was dancing with happiness).

And then my fifteen-year-old self's dream came true by finally getting to see Rent (with an incredible and extremely talented cast).

Me and some dude, I think he was in that vampire movie?

(In all seriousness, I had to be coaxed by my friend to pose in any photos at Madame Tussauds - hence the cheesy smile. I found the wax sculptures to be uber-creepy and the whole concept of the museum a bit odd).

And with the Alice in Wonderland statue in Central Park.

I promise regular posting will return here soon!

Looks like you had a great time. And it's fantastic that you got to see and do things which you have wanted to do for such a long time.
The Strand looks like it is absolutely awesome.
