My 2012 trip around New York state and NYC in Pictures

After spending our summer at the wonderful Camp Ballibay as camp counsellors, me and TJ took an Intrepid trek from New York City to Niagara Falls. New York state is so beautiful, and driving through the Finger Lakes is something else. You can read about our trek on Intrepid’s website here.

After we got back to New York City, we spent just under a week there. That summer was honestly the time of my life and I cannot wait to go back to the states again. I’ve been itching to go back since I came home two years ago.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t as obsessed with photography as I am now so I only took pictures around the Niagara Falls. My photos aren’t super great in general, but I had too much of a good time to care. Also, a big thank you for TJ’s pictures and for persuading a grumpy me to pose in pictures. Without you, there wouldn’t be that picture of us on Top of the Rock which is one of my favourite pictures of all time.

I love documenting my travels and showcasing these gorgeous places in their own posts. Dublin is a surprisingly beautiful city, whilst Lisbon is literally just beautiful building after beautiful building. I also created a Weekend Guide to New York for film fans if that’s your bag.
