We set foot at the top of The Empire State Building and went our separate ways. I was expecting hundreds of jump in the air selfies, laughter and merriment! After all we had been planning this moment for weeks. She walked off on her own and I’m quite sure I shed a tear in the quietest corner, wondering quite what I had done to upset her.
It seems we had nothing to talk about and didn’t really have anything in common at all. Even though I had known her for years I didn’t really know her at all.
We got back to England and hardly spoke. After getting over jetlag we both returned to work and yes we spoke and were friendly to each other, but it was never the same.
Since leaving that job, which is now around 18 months ago I think we have probably exchanged one text. It turns out she was a great girl and when we were at work things were fabulous, but we were never as close as I thought.
So heading back to the States this year, I am determined for things to be different and to fall completely head over heels in love with NY again. I wasn’t so hasty to book tickets this time around.
My travel partner, Brigita and I are have everything in common. We dream of setting up an animal sanctuary together. Are obsessed with skincare, face masks and the latest foundation. Love nothing more than going to London and spending hours in Selfridges and laughing as we make our way round. We have the same morals and think the same. We have regular trips to the local spa and indulge in afternoon tea. She is definitely the sister I never had.
I cannot wait to enjoy this fantastic city with one of my closest friends! There is so much to explore and so many Sephora’s to visit!
It’s strange that someone you really thought you knew well, you hardly knew at all.
This time around this trip is going to be EPIC!
Has anyone ever gone away with a friend and it didn’t turn out quite how you thought it would? Do you have any travel plans this year? Where are you jetting off to?
