Sunset walk along Brooklyn Bridge

Last month marked my third visit to New York City, concrete jungle where dreams are made of, the city that never sleeps… You name it. During my sixth day in the city – second day of my official vacation with my friend there – we crossed the ever so famous Brooklyn Bridge driven by our desire to devour one of the famous Grimaldi’s pizzas.

After a long but magnificent day of walking all around the city we were planning on sitting our pizza-filled bodies on the subway, but just as we were leaving the restaurant we noticed it would be a beautiful sunset. So we took a short walk around Dumbo park and Brooklyn before crossing the Bridge again during sunset. It was without a doubt one of the most magical, unforgettable moments in my life. The pictures speak for themselves. (Click for a bigger view! It’s worth it.)

Starstruck at Book Expo America

My bosses decided to bring me to Book Expo America in New York because my job is to oversee our sales in the US.

Lost in New York City

6 months ago, I got the job of my dreams.

5,5 months ago, my boss uttered the words “you’re coming to Book Expo America with us.”

5,5 months later, I’m sat in a fancy suite in a New York hotel wondering how I’ve ever gotten here.

Counting down the days till the USA

It’s been 2 years since I set foot on American soil. That is a deplorably long time. So when my boss announced that I was to attend Book Expo America in New York City at the end of May (more detailed post to follow), it was the perfect opportunity to make a two-week trip out of it. The picture above was taken before the Reflecting Pool in DC was renovated, when I was still at university and had long, blonde hair – a long, long time ago. It’s time for an updated version of it.
