The Travel Book – The American Diaries – A Weekend In New Jersey and Independence Day…

I love to travel as I am sure you aware from all of the articles I write on a weekly basis. I ever so often keep diaries but sometimes when you are on the move it can be hard to remember to keep them up. One of the times I did write every day was when I lived in NYC for three months in the summer of 2010. As part of our university course we had to do work experience, I knew one of my friends was going abroad so I thought I would join them and take a jump and go to NYC. I was 21 and it was my first time travelling on my own so I wanted to document it. So, this month I am going to share some of my diaries as well as some articles here and there about certain things I visited in NYC.


Hi today had a few tough challenges with one of the students – they need to understand that you have to learn the basis before jumping ahead to the advanced stuff! Met up with an old friend today and went for Korean food, first time I tried it, it was really nice.

Today was the family showcase it went well! Everybody finished their projects today! At the family showcase I met all the parents and handed out diplomas, This evening I got the NJ transit to Princeton New Jersey to meet fellow teacher Michael and explored the campus that they teach at. We went to a couple of bars and hung out with a girl called Lisa.

Today I had a walk around Princeton and looked at the village and the University Campus. It is really pretty and very quaint. We also went to the local mall had a look around and went to a Wallmart as well. Now back at Fordham and no-one is around boo.
