Went overseas.

In August I went over the Atlantic to New York – Manhattan. I LOVE NYC it’s just so full of energy. I’ve been lucky enough to go there a few times with family. I don’t know what it is, but there’s just something magic over the “American way” of life. I really hope to go there on exchange in spring of 2014. The US is big, noisy and in your face but still my heart craves more and more. I really hope I’ll go there next fall with my mom, maybe…? (Hahaa, I know that she reads my blog.) If you get the chance to go there, please do. You might love it or hate it, but an experience that no one should miss out on. Well anyway I wanted to post some pics from the trip in August 2012.

Whole Foods, only food store in the US that sells veggies. Okey I might have overdone it, but I do think it's the best food store in the US.
