The Travel Book – The American Diaries -What Is The British Girl Saying?

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.

I was working at a summer camp a lot of the time I was there so the diary entries just about work I have got rid of as they are repetitive however I am now going to skip to the weekend after the last one. 


Hi! Today at lunch they decided to play a game with the students called ‘What is the British Girl Saying’ when they had to guess what the English word meant in USA terminology. Was on duty tonight and played Call of Duty it was really fun.

Hi! Today was family showcase, it went really well today the parents seemed proud of what the kids had accomplished. We then had our staff meeting and started to film footage for the staff music video to be shared on the last day. We then went for our staff devo, which was a meal down the road, I had fried shrimp and buffalo wings. It was Jens last day here, it was really sad to see her go. Me and Parri spent the evening learning the Beyonce dance when we got back.
