Distant Shores

My trip to NYC last month was my first trip there. I've flown to many places before without suffering any fear about it but I must say that flying into LaGuardia was a bit of a white knuckle experience. The relatively recent media images of passengers standing on top of a plane floating in the New York harbour only served to, shall we say, enhance my excitement. We came zooming in over the water with no sign of land anywhere beneath us, lower and lower. I wasn't in the window seat so when we finally did touch down, I still couldn't see any evidence of terra firma. The landing itself seemed as if we were trying to screech to a halt on the deck of an aircraft carrier with only centimetres to spare before careening into an immovable object.
I can't wait to do it again!


  1. Sounds like fun ! Haven't been to NYC in ages, but liked to go for day trips... not sure I'd want to live there though... but people who do seem to love it.

  2. Day trips to NYC? Sounds great. Now you have your day trip to Paris. Not too shabby.
