Our Epic USA East Coast Adventure

After a hiatus from blogging, I'm back. And I wanted to share with you some highlights from my recent trip to the States - a trip that started off as a friend's wedding in Virginia and turned into a bit of an adventure! It was an absolute dream holiday and we loved every second. (Ok maybe not the part where we shared a Greyhound bus with freshly released in-mates... let's just say it at least makes a great story) 

Here are just some of the highlights...

We spent long days at the beach with our friends and the dogs. We relaxed on a tiny island only accessible by boat. We stayed in a beautiful beach house where we stargazed from the rooftop. We ate incredible seafood fresh from the Atlantic, had dinner on a private balcony on Wilmington's riverfront watching the sunset, followed by an insane thunder and lightening show miles into the distance. We drank ALL the local NC beer - educated by our lovely friends, we toured the UNCW campus and I shared my many American college memories with Scott. I shared all my favourite old haunts from my uni days. We attended our first American wedding, visited Brooklyn for the first time and fell in love with it, walked across the Brooklyn Bridge, had professional photos taken in Times Square (no, we did not plan that!). We rowed a boat around Central Park and laughed so hard at a Comedy Cellar show. We walked for miles around Manhattan, determined to see the city by foot. I visited multiple Sephoras and bought way too many candles in Bath and Body Works. We spent a magical day in Boston discovering Charles Street (special shout out to Follain, an amazing beauty store), visited Boston Common, the waterfront and markets. We kayaked on a stunning lake in Lakeville MA, and shared the 'Sunday Football' tradition with Scott's family. (That's American Football...) 

We had an absolute ball, and I can't wait to see where our next adventure takes us! I've included a few of my photo highlights below :)
