Hello/Goodbye

Zara dress, H&M flats and all accessoiries by Pieces

My suitcased is packed, I double checked my documents and my cameras battery is loaded. We will be leaving early on Wednesday morning for Tilburg, The Netherlands to catch a train to the Schiphol Airport (Amsterdam). From there we will fly to Madrid where we have to wait 5 hours for our plane to New York. Overall we will arrive the evening of July 4th and eventhough we will be exhausted from the long travel, I hope to see some of the fireworks! We will be spending a few days in New York to then take a train to Washington DC. I am SO excited to be finally making this trip. I never really dreamed of New York (Montana and the southern states were higher on my list) but my friends, co-workers and some readers here have warmed me up for it. Thank you all for the tips on what to see, eat and do!

Right now doing some “very imporant” last minute things like finishing up my shopping list and checking out blogs in hopes to discover more things to do. Making a wishlist was never this easy! Thanks to Go Chic and my Closet Challenge series I know exactly what I “need“. You can read more about the series on Kristins blog or by clicking here.
Although we have internet acces in our hotel, I won’t be blogging for the next two weeks. I need a break from posting and really want to enjoy my time exploring the cities with K. I asked a few of my favorite bloggers to take over The Ginger Diaries while I’m gone. The people I asked provide for a fun mixture of blogs and posts, but the main subject will be travelling.

A more than fitting 90s classic. This used to be my fave song! And I totally did those moves too…
I hope you guys enjoy, Happy 4th of July already and see you all back in two weeks!

    Ah, you're visiting my state. (But I assume you're visiting NYC, not other parts of the state.) Have fun down there! I hope you see some great fireworks. : )

    Have a great time Nikki! I'm so glad you can finally travel to the US after what happened last summer! 🙂
    Take care and take lotsa photos! 🙂

    what a dream!!! after that trek to get to NYC you'll probably be setting off fireworks of happiness all on your own :))) enjoy everything – remember to book a neck massage after your 1st day out exploring though…i had such a neck crick my 1st time there. everything is just so BIG, looking up all the time isn't something our necks are used to i guess – baha!

    have a wonderful break, getting off the net for a while is a good thing for sure.

    love the peach + black outfit, you look lovely as can be! ♥
