I sometimes wish we had Winter like the Northern countries to really enjoy Christmas with all the warm, spicy flavours we see in drinks and food... but it's okay, we'll swap gingerbread cookies for ice cold mocktails!
As we wind down to the end of the year, it's the perfect time to reflect on what 2018 was - or wasn't - as we gear up for 2019. I don't know about you but I wasn't the hugest fan of 2018, but I'm keen to see what the New Year brings.
I hope you guys are working on what you're passionate about - something I'm trying to achieve again.
I hope you're listening to all the Mariah Carey songs 🎄 ~
Blog post title, 'If London is a watercolor, New York is an oil painting' is a quote by Peter Shaffer - a British writer. Next year I want to save up to go to New York City. I really, really really want to go so badly. I've never travelled overseas which makes it all the more scary to think about going alone. I don't know if my mom would want to go to NYC. I have so many friends there (and in New Jersey) who I want to meet. I also want to go and watch a taping of the Rachael Ray Show. I want to go and drink Starbucks and do every other tourist type activity in the city.
So, wish me luck in saving for this over the next few months. A return ticket to NYC is about R8000 (US$1100)...
