We are off on holidays so it will be a little quiet on the blog until I am back in Puerto Rico next weekend…
The holiday plans have been changed numerous times, first the idea was to go to the Deep South – Georgia, northern Florida, Alabama and Tennessee… then O signed up for a course in Seattle and I was so excited about going to the Pacific North-west! We were even planning to nip across the border to see Vancouver – a dream for me, as an old Bryan Adams-fan (saw him live in Copenhagen in 1992) and of course Seattle which would have reminded me of my grunge period… Oh well, then that plan was scrapped last week when O’s course was cancelled😦
Feeling a little demotivated and not very keen on trying to plan for another holiday destination at the last minute, we had burgers in Fuddrucker’s last Friday while discussing how shitty the week had been when O said that he probably had to go to New Jersey this week for a meeting… All of a sudden I had an idea – why don’t I go with him and we could spend the weekend in NYC! Or, even – we could make it into a week-long holiday as we had already planned for the west coast!! And when I told O that we could go to Niagara Falls, maybe even Canada he jumped at the idea and we went into holiday-planning mode again!
So, we are actually off to the north-east instead of the north-west and we are probably, as you read this, crashing a certain blog-brunch between Saltis, Sporty Spice aka Petra and Annika!! However, it is a surprise for Petra and Annika so that is why I have been keeping mum on the blog on where we were going on holidays… Fingers crossed that they are happy to see the two brunch crashers today! It will be so much fun to see the three girls again – you might remember that Petra, Saltis and I met for a long fika at the Swedish café Fika back in February, and Annika invited O and I for brunch in Virginia in August, so it will really be like meeting 3 old friends!
The plan is to spend this weekend in New York City and tomorrow (Sunday) head towards the north – i.e Niagara, and maybe even Montreal depending on the weather… It will only be my third time visiting Niagara Falls (in 1989 and 1992) but O really wanted to see the cataratas (falls in Spanish) and who am I to deny him that when I am travelling for free on his airmiles!
