Cruising around Manhattan - Skyscrapers and Statue of Liberty
New York New York... My last days in here came way to fast. On Sunday I am already leaving for San Francisco, a week later back to London and Vienna and then College is already back on the schedule. This summer went by so fast, so many things happened that I defiantly can't wait for a few peaceful weeks in London just to let everything settle a bit, after pretty much travelling for two months straight.
Last weekend my wonderful parents visited me and we made probably one of the most exciting trips ever - a little cruise around the island of Manhattan. It's one thing to walk around between all those Skyscrapers and even work in one of them, but seeing them so close and so far away at once, on a beautiful little yacht, is something complete different.
The tour was accompanied by architectural details, which was obvious since both of my parents are architects. But still, it's amazing how much you can learn - and see - from a tour like this!
I realised later, looking at the images, that I pretty much dressed up as an sailor, with defiantly wasn't my intention. The captions hat, one of the biggest accessories this year in combination with my moms old Prada jumper (called the Stepford-wife or golfer-wife jumper, since I always feel like I would be ready to drink some champagne on a perfect green yarn when wearing it) made me ready to sail into sunset.
The best part was that we also took a little turn around Statue of Liberty, something which I only ever saw out of office windows in Downtown. But my favourite moment was when we sailed through Brooklyn and Williamsburg Bridge, where I possibly took my favourite image ever of the Manhattan Skyline.
