Liberty Island

Next on our New York bucket list had to be the Statue of Liberty. A must see for anyone's first time in the Big Apple, although I wouldn't necessarily visit the landmark again.  
It's a one time kind of thing.
After our delicious breakfast from The Butcher's Daughter, which I spoke about in my previous post, we headed to the harbour, hopped on a ferry and were soon heading towards Ellis Island.

The Butcher's Daughter - Brunch in NYC

My first of many posts from New York, and what better way to kick them off than with a food review of none other than The Butcher's Daughter. You may have heard of them before with their popularity soaring over recent years, but if not, you should definitely pay them a visit. 
The most insta-worthy brunch location I've ever had the pleasure of visiting...

In the 6ix

With it being reading week last week, we thought it the perfect opportunity to finally do some more exploring of Canada after several weeks of lectures. 
Luckily for us, London is only a couple hours away from Toronto, so we jumped on the coach to go and explore the city for the day.
Definitely one to tick off the travel bucket list if you haven't already...

Downtown London

Western University, where I'm currently studying, is located in a small city called London a couple of hours from Toronto. A couple of weeks ago, my friend Flo and I decided to go on a little adventure around the area and make the most of the weather as the temperature was still around 30 degrees, even at the end of September. 
Although relatively small, we discovered some lovely little nooks and crannies. Very photogenic as well...

Fall'in in love with Canada - Niagara Falls

A bit of a different setting from the usual so I suppose I have a bit of catching up to do. I'm currently on a year abroad at Western University in Ontario, Canada. The last month or so has been a whirlwind to say the least, meeting lots of new people and adjusting to lectures again (unfortunately my second year of uni actually counts). But rather than drowning in my current essay sorrows, I'll just focus on the fun stuff. Being so close to the area and luck enough to have lovely family willing to chauffeur me around, of course we had to take a trip to one of the seven wonders of the world - Niagara Falls.
Let's just say it's not just my new British friends that are steaming on a regular basis...
After a relatively short drive for Canada's standard, we arrived in Niagara, parked up and wandered down the tourist strip. 
We were greeted by this breathtaking view, definitely not disappointing.
