Going Down Memory Lane: New York Part 1

I love travelling, and I enjoy travelling on my own very much. On this occasion my trip down memory lane has taken me back to my visit to New York. Here are some pictures of my visit to New York.

New York is such an amazing city, a melting pot of dreams, ambition, creativity, aspiration and races. On my first day I visited The Empire State Building, The New York Public Library, Bryan Park and Times Square. I had a blast walking on those streets, the noise, sea of people and colours  was very exciting but a little frightening at the same time. I made it a routine to go back to the hostel before dark, usually around 6 or 7pm. My hostel was situated in Harlem and although it is up and coming with great new buildings, its 70s reputation still lingers in the mind. I will share more pictures next time.

Going Down Memory Lane: London

This morning as I was going through my computer files and I found lots of pictures that inspired me to take a trip down memory lane. Looking at those pictures, I was instantly infused with positivity and a good feeling reminiscent of those moments lived.

The following pictures where taken at my flat in London. My friend Jin Wai cooked dinner for me, and we both sat happily talking about life and enjoying good healthy food before heading to the West End to watch the play ‘A Street Car Named Desire’ at Covent Garden.

This is my lovely friend Jin Wai who cooked a delicious vegetarian Chilli con Carne and also the succulent raspberry and white vine jelly.

This is me, I have such a theatrical spirit so I dressed as a mixture of  French/ American  Blanche and Chinese Lady.

And this is us two just before leaving the house to watch the play.

After the play, which we really enjoyed by the way, we headed towards Southbank. It is such a beautiful place to walk and enjoy the scene nary. Strolling by the side of the Thames river we came across various street performers who in their effort to entertain were dressed in a very creative and comical way.

              “When I was Happy and I didn’t know it…”

Our happiest memories tend to be of those years or moments when we were fully emerged in the fabric of life, no worrying about the future but making the most of today. This trip down memory lane has helped me personally to see the beauty of life. The moments, people and places that make life a better place. I would suggest (if you wish of course) you look at your old pictures of yourself, or past birthday or trips and see the YOU of that moment an the YOU of today. You’ll be surprised at the founding and the wave of emotions and inspiration these memories will bring.  Those pictures were taken three days before my trip to New York – and so my next post down memory lane will take back to my trip to New York which I will share with you.

Happy Living!!!!
