    We've been back home a while now so it's about time I dug up some photos from our summer in New York / Florida.
    We were away for over five weeks and both had a camera so I'll leave it up to your imagination on how many photos we took!!

    This was our very first trip to New York and the photos don't look very impressive this small but here goes...

    Yes, photos! Thank you. The city seems so overwhelming to me.

    Love the brown bear.

    We spent a week there and were actually underwhelmed by most things. We enjoyed our time there but don't need to go back.

    It really didn't wow us Lisa! We feel no need to go back at all.
    I think my favourite day was when we went to the Bronx for the zoo.

    I'm curious, what were you underwhelmed by? Was something disappointing?

    I think we just built up this amazing place in our heads before we went and it didn't live up to our expectations.
    The shows we saw in the evenings were good although no better than ones we have seen previously at our local theatres.
    I think we were expecting magic and it just wasn't there fo us. We did all of the typical tourist attractions and were, well, basically bored after an hour or so at each place.
    Nothing made us go "wow" :unsure:

    I can understand that, I was wondering if it had something to do with expectations. You may not want to return for another visit, but think of all of the things you did get to see. And you know what, that's okay. Sometimes once is a enough :yes:
