Happy Sunday loves! Although it’s way past midnight Zurich time, in which I usually find time to write, it’s only 8.30pm here in New York. Yes, you might have guessed from the title that I am talking about the Big Apple; the city that never sleeps. It’s been an utmost amazing, yet exhausting week for me. Monday morning I took the flight to NYC, arriving in the late afternoon and finding myself a little lost when getting out of the express bus from the airport. This was my first trip to the Big Apple, surely, though, not my last. The city has amazed me, has taken my breath away and I am still dazzled whilst writing this here in the Lufthansa Lounge at the airport (thanks daddy, for having the status). The trip wasn’t all fun, though. Yes, it surely was fun, but not fun as in city sight-seeing and shopping-till-you-drop kind of fun. I came for a business trip, one that surely has opened my eyes a little further. I surely love my work, the opportunities it offers and how it constantly challenges me to further deepen my knowledge.
But enough of the business talk. I am most utterly sure that everyone immediately knew I was a tourist. Although I can (proudly) say that I have quite an american accent – with no german accent coming through – I was most lively noticed with either my camera or iphone camera being out at all times, trying to capture all important buildings and moments. Having rather lived in smaller cities, I am not used to all these skyscrapers – which was, quite frankly, a problem. How do you fit so much scenery into one photo by itself? You don’t. It’s a simple as that. Instead, I tried using the architectural giants as guidelines to creating some images with different perspectives, trying to capture the heights, sizes, widths, the depths, the reflecting windows, even the dark alleys. My phone storage is bursting full due to the photos I took, and I don’t want to load them all onto you at once – at least, not just yet. Instead, I will try and fit in some NYC memories I took with me from time to time.
I’ll now concentrate on some more emails, which I want to catch up on before the new week begins. Oh, and enjoy that glass white wine, which was just served to me with the most welcoming smile here yet. As I’ll be in the plane over night, not landing until Monday noon (Zurich time), I wish you already the most wonderful start to the new week! xo
ps. apologize for the quality of the photos – I’ve only had the time to upload some of my iPhone photos
