An Empire State Of Mind

I guess Alicia Keys had it right when she sung about a concrete jungle. Only a hard climb to the summit of a mountain overlooking the bright blue ocean can compare to the feeling of standing on the concrete tree tops of New York City.

Stinky Subways and Manhattan Musings (Part 2)

On the only sunny day in the first week of May this year, I did eventually make it to Central Park. And whilst I don’t necessarily confirm or deny that my dream was some kind of warning about my inner turmoil, visiting the park was a very spiritual and fulfilling experience.

Stinky Subways and Manhattan Musings (Part 1)

New York City was a place I knew I would visit again. Partly due to the proximity to London, its position as a centre for art and business in The States, and also because I really did like it a lot… I just didn’t realise how much I truly enjoyed the vibe until I returned to the city in December after seven months of inner-London living.

A Hawaiian Adventure

Hawaii, whilst part of the USA, felt more like a separate entity, caught between two worlds. The laid back, no worries attitude mixed with a sense of paranoia that anyone and everyone could sue you was quite the sight. Only the cash we carried in our hands and the big chain fast food restaurants reminded us that we were in a state of America.
