Part ten: New York

... And that brings us to my final trip post. As always, I hated leaving New York, but if all continues to go well, it shouldn't be too long until I am back! 

Chanced upon my size in a style I'd been chasing a mere 20 minutes before I had to leave for my flight. FATE.

Visiting my old apartment building! Home, sweet mouse-infested home.

My favourite spot in Central Park.

Part eight: New York

The last stop on my recent trip was New York City - possibly my favourite city in the world, in which I lived for a couple of months a few years ago. One of many things I love about New York is the way it lives and breathes, always changing and evolving, but somehow maintaining its overall identity and those of its oddly specific neighbourhoods. 
It was great to do a lot of the touristy things I never had time to do when I lived there... I still haven't had the chance to visit the Statue of Liberty, though! Fresh off the plane, I hit up FAO Schwarz and caught a Broadway musical, followed by a day at the Natural History Museum (and y'all know I love me some animals and dinosaurs!). 

FAO Schwartz should know to keep me away from any giant versions of regular objects.

My favourite dinosaur, the parasaurolophus! 

Why not jazz up your look with a neat dinosaur bumbag?

Try to keep up, Australia.

Getting reacquainted with my dear MetroCard (and duckfacing, apparently).

A rectangular, toasted marshmallow with an ice cream centre? What!
