New York New York

New York, New York. I always wanted to say that! It was a busy stop in New York. We stayed in Brooklyn and took daily trips into Manhattan every day on the Metro. There is so much to do in NYC. We covered a lot in the eight days we were there. Mr Notjustnat and I enjoyed taking photographs in NYC. Every little single thing was worth photographing there. Now you understand why there are so many great photographers coming out of NYC!

There are wonderful museums and galleries in NYC. We visited many of them in a short time. We walked the High Line and crossed the Brooklyn Bridge by foot. I visited Etsy head office and I met up with my childhood friend of fifty years!

Tall buildings in NY

We visited MOMA, the Metropolitan Museum, Brooklyn Museum and the Guggenheim Museum seeing great art. We saw works from the same artists in Amsterdam, London, Berlin and Munich. It made me wonder how many of these great works these artists actually produced? I have a lot of reading to do about these paintings.

We've left NYC and visited Seattle for a quick stop for 4 days. We are now in Vancouver before heading home with a short stop in Auckland. I'm feeling a little sad that our trip is coming to an end. But I'm also looking forward to going home. No place like home right? 

I will cover both Seattle and Vancouver on my next post. Don't miss it. I'm having a fantastic time in Vancouver with my friends here! I hope to be able to get the post up before the Christmas holidays. I hope everyone is gearing up for the holiday season. Having travelled through the US and Canada and seeing all the holidays ornaments everywhere in shops and malls, I now feel that it's time to get home and start to decorating my house too. 

Until next time
Nat
