It’s been an action-packed three weeks, and now I’m so ready for home in Australia.
I’ve ticked off every item on my ‘Must Do/See’ list, including: Central Park, the Met/Whitney/Guggenheim/New Museum/Brooklyn Museum, Coney Island, ferry past Statue of Liberty, Manhattan walks, Brooklyn Bridge, Red Hook, Roosevelt Island, and 10-15kms/day of street strolling. I also got to walk & talk all through the Botanic Gardens with fellow blogger LA, which was an unexpected treat.
I’ve discovered the joys of Van Leuwen’s vegan ice cream, plus the widely-available bakeries & Mexican food all through Brooklyn, & of course Key Lime Pie.
My brother’s wedding was wonderful- I got to walk him down the aisle- and my speech went down well too (phew).
The last week has just been relaxing at his apartment, getting to know he & his lovely wife (they have been together for 10 years but she & I have only met once before for 24hrs in a barn in France); I am SO LUCKY & grateful to have spent this time together after so much separation and loss.
Now, two long flights await me: 12hrs then 14. *grimaces. I already feel like I’m transitioning out of here, & I am so ready for Home Sweet Home.
In celebration of these amazing 3 weeks, I got my nails done (which I never do!), so I’m tapping out this post on my smartphone, admiring the little apples…
With a full heart, & infinite gratitude for this special time, much love to all, G xO
