New York is a vibrant city, full of culture, stunning architecture and interesting people. I’ve been asked why I was going back for a third time, and I suppose the answer is that there is so much to do! We flew out on the Thursday morning, stayed for Easter and flew back Tuesday night. Here’s […]
Here is a bunch of stuff I did, thought, said and looked at in 2013. I like writing these things down and having a little look back. I hope you all had a brilliant 2013, and all the best for 2014.
