Back in April of this year, I went with my family to New York City, and for whatever reason, I never ever got round to writing a blog post about our trip, so 6 months later, here it is!
I’ve spent the last week or so re-editing all the images from the trip, I wasn’t massively impressed with a lot of them to be quite fair. There was a lot of haze and harsh sunlight in some of the shots, but I’m more happy with the images now I’ve had a chance to re-edit them. Really looking forward to going back to NYC though now that I have my new camera, forever wanting to shoot everything I done before with my D750.
Anyway, let’s get to it!
The first part of our trip to New York City begins in Aberdeen.

I was going to just add this on to the original Rome post, when we started our travels in Italy, but Emma suggested that I make a new post, and well, she knows best, right? So here it is, a completely new post on our last day spent in Rome before our flight the following day!
I’m really glad we decided to head back to Rome the day before our flight, rather than getting the train back from Florence in the morning. It probably would have resulted in a lot of running about no doubt, but this way we were able to pack the night before, and then hop on the Leonardo Express from Rome’s Termini station which was only 5 minutes from our hotel.
For this visit back to Rome, we stayed in the Augusta Lucilla Palace, a hotel which is literally a 5-10 minute walk from Termini Station, ideal if you’re looking to catch the train to the airport, or wanting to make use of the metro system. The hotel itself was lovely, and they upgraded our room to this HUGE suite, with a bed that vibrates (massages, apparently)!

As soon as we booked Rome, Emma said that she wanted to visit Pompeii, so we figured that the best way to do this would be to search for a company offering a full day tour. We’ve used Gray Line a number of times, particularly when we visited Iceland, so they were our first port of call, and rightly so, they offered a tour called ‘Pompeii and it’s Ruins’.
Details of the tour can be found by clicking the link above.
We were picked up from our hotel at 6:45am, and taken to the Gray Line office in central Rome, where our tickets were checked and we changed over to a large coach, which would take us to Pompeii via Naples.

July and August have been very busy months with a lot of footwear related stuff towards the end of July and beginning of August, and then with going on holiday so shortly after, I never had much time to get through all of the footwear things.
So I apologise for the lack of content on here recently, but I’ve been posting quite a lot on Instagram since I’ve been away, and after I’ve got through all the content from my holiday, I’ll jump back to the footwear and will post my SoleBloc Round-Up, along with an interview that was conducted at the NB Real Ale Event.
Anyway, enough of the formalities, myself and Emma had never been to Italy before, so a few months back we booked some return flights to Rome, and then had 10 days to fill in so got down to the planning. First off, since we were flying into Rome, we decided to spend 4 nights here as this would be one of the main places we wanted to spend some time. If I’m honest, we could probably have just spent the full 10 nights here, Rome is such an amazing place with so much to do, and just generally a pretty great vibe in the city.
