All Aboard the Holiday Train

Here’s a quick NYC post in between all the London pics. If you’re in town on a Sunday, take a ride aboard the vintage MTA holiday train which runs between 2nd avenue and queens plaza. It’s a perfectly festive ride for anyone headed to the holiday market shops in Bryant Park!

I snapped this photo of a small shopping marketplace while walking back from the tube. No idea what its called but the square was charming and quaint.

Hi Sher,

I am so glad you commented on my blog, I really love your photographs and am gradually working my way through your lovely posts!

This photo is of the Piazza in Covent Garden too, I used to work around there and loved spending my lunch breaks in the square every day – watching the people perform in front of crowds. I even bumped into Vivienne Westwood there one day and Robbie Coltrane (Hagrid from Harry Potter) on another…

It used to be a flower market a long time ago and is one of the oldest parts of London.

Hope you enjoyed your time in London!

Aw I’m glad you took a peek over here, great to finally know what that square actually was! It was definitely such a cute area – I stumbled on it since we were staying with a British friend who lived by Covent Garden.

Thanks for stopping by :)
