After a long flight from Sydney to New York via L.A, we finally arrived in the Big Apple. After the drama of checking in to the hotel, I was looking forward to a long hot shower. While exhausted from the flight, the excitement of being in the greatest city of the world gave us all a second wind, so a small group went for a walk and stood under the bright lights of Times Square, taking it all in. Memories of previous visits came flooding back and I took a minute to close my eyes to listen to sounds of the city around me. New York is the place to find your dreams and make them come true. Everything is up for grabs. It is yours for the taking. As I walked back to the hotel with a belly full of food, I felt the energy of the city rushing through me. Tired but content, I prepared for bed and thought about what the next ten days held in store.
