It’s Official!

 I’m am over the top happy about this.
After calling the airline services 10x, booking hotels, planes and trains, getting an international passport, doing a test, checking my bankaccount over and over again and finding a summerjob. I can now officially tell you that I booked a holiday for the end of this summer! aaaaah, teenage life can be so good! 

On the programme are:New York City and Washington DC!
The 9 hours long flight might will cause me a serious jetlag, haha.
I have read through some tourist guides already and I have made a little list of things I can’t miss out on! Maybe some of you still have ideas on what I must see/do/hear/eat/shop? All tips are welcome! 
I depart in Paris, August 28th and I’ll be back on September 8th.I am on the hunt for some guestbloggers to keep things movin’ around here whilest I’m gone ^^ 
EDIT: Due to Irene and safety reasons our flights got cancelled. Oh well, better luck next year!

    You are coming to America! You will be so close to me when you are in D.C. You are going to have a wonderful time!

    You should check out the Metropolitan Museum of Art if it isn't already on your list of things to do/see. It's my favourite place to go whenever I visit NYC. πŸ™‚

    I hope you have lots of fun on your trip!

    So cool! Be sure to check out Georgetown when you're in D.C! I almost didn't see it but then I had a day of exploring by myself and decided to walk across the bridge. It has the COOLEST old historic houses and a beautiful college. I absolutely fell in love. Hope you have a gorgeous time! I love both those cities quite a bit. πŸ™‚

    That sounds super exciting. I have never been to that half of the country, so I can't offer you any advice about where to go, but I look forward to seeing your photos!

    It's killing me that I totally have the money to travel but can't take the time away from work to go places. I'll live vicariously through you, I suppose.

    I just went to New York City for the first time ever, and it was beyond amazing! Make sure you go to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, the atmosphere there is wonderful! Go to Beacon's Closet (88 N 11th Street) vintage and second hand clothing and for vegetarian and vegan food, go to Bliss CafΓ© (191 Bedford Ave). Both places are in Williamsburg.
    And this one may be obvious, but go to Grand Central Station, it is so gorgeous. And if it is still open, the Alexander McQueen exhibition at the Met, it was STUNNING.

    No problem, glad I could help, even though my NYC experience is truly minimal. Double-check where that Amtrak train leaves, though, because when I went to Buffalo with Amtrak, it was from Penn Station.

  10. 1 August 2011 / 17:49

    Ohh, how wonderful! I hope you have an amazing time! New York is soo fun!


  11. 1 August 2011 / 18:49

    NYC and DC are great cities. You should check out the museums in DC. They are awesome and free.
    If you still need guest posters I'd be happy to write one for you.

  12. 1 August 2011 / 21:07

    Wow I'm so jealous, I've never been to America but would love to go there once. So amazing you booked!

    Fun!!! Oh gosh, New York is so beautiful and crazy all at the same time! My favorite part of my trip to NYC was standing completely still in the middle of TIme Square and just watching and listening to the thousands of people moving around you. Everyone seemed to be in such a hurry!

  19. 2 August 2011 / 20:55

    Ohh, how exciting!! You picked some good places to visit in America πŸ™‚ I sometimes visit my friend in NYC, and I have to say, I hope you get to see Central Park!

    As envious as I am that you live in Paris, which is pretty much the city of my dreams, I know you're going to have an amazing time visiting New York and Washington DC. Both cities are incredibly, especially New York. Have a wonderful time, and make sure to take lots of photos to share with all of us πŸ™‚

  22. 3 August 2011 / 11:24

    NYC is one of my favourite cities in the world, you are going to have SO much fun!!!! For vintage cltohing, I highly suggest Beacon's Closet in Brooklyn. It's just a Subway ride from Manhattan πŸ™‚

  27. 5 August 2011 / 15:46

    I have been to NYC twice now and both times have been quite the experience. There is just too much to do all the time. But I bet you will come back with some great photos and memories. Take lots of photos!

  28. 6 August 2011 / 02:03

    ooh, I love New York! You're sure to have an amazing time – you can never run out of things to do there.
