I’ve not been around and blogging much lately, i’ve been super busy (but thats another post..) So here i am… thinking about Christmas already!
I was totally and utterly lost last Christmas as I just didn’t know what to get for Dan and it ended up being a trip to Barcelona, joint with his birthday present and then a few other little bits.
Buying for someone that literally has everything is the absolute worse because there isn’t anything new or exciting. Dan and I have gone to Paris twice, Madrid, Rome and Barcelona in the last 19 months and each time we’ve gone, it’s purely to find new things and to literally go on an adventure!
Rome will always be my favourite, although I say this, but i can think of loads of amazing things from each place!
For some reason (which i’m more than happy about) it’s now a “Thing” that we go away as his Birthday / Christmas present and i’m totally okay with that.. apart from the fact that i feel like i need to make it absolutely amazing each and every time!
So yeah, back to the point of this.. I was sitting in bed on night off from work and decided that I wanted to book something for his Birthday / Christmas but tell him, so we both had time to save so we could do everything and anything we want to do..
I’d dropped hints about New York and he kept saying “Yeah one day, one day i’d love to go with you…”
So, me being me and being the very extra person that I am, didn’t really listen to the whole “one day” part and jumped straight on the internet.
After looking for 4 days, at any and every opportunity I could and asking various people when to go, what do do etc… We’re going to NEW YORK at Christmas for 4 days.
I told Dan i’d booked us a surprise but said I wasn’t going to tell him what it was until his birthday (November).. An hour later i was bugging him to ring me so i could tell him.. My whole surprise thing lasted a solid hour and a half max.. Oooops!
So, heres my question; Other than obviously pretending that we’re in “Home Alone” and doing the usual New York bits at Christmas, where would YOU go and why? After flying all that way i’d hate to miss something! – So let me know!
