Incomings

Hello guys,
Just two more exams to go! One is tomorrow, one is on friday and then from next week on I'll be back to writing letters. Finally!

Here's a quick post on the incoming mail of the last days!
Abbye / Northern Ireland

Jen / UK

Megi / Indonesia

Indonesian stamp

S. / Germany

Such a creative way to send a letter without an envelope!

Anne / USA

K. / Philippines

Has anyone of you ever visited New York or the Niagara Falls and do you have any tips (or do you want to come along (Aug. 29 - Sept. 10)?) or dos and don'ts? I'd really appreciate it!

Also, I'm still looking for people to write a guest post, so if you're interested leave a comment and I'll get to you with the information.

That's all for now, I have to study some more... Just three more days and then on friday afternoon the semester will be OVER! :)

Alles Liebe,
Caddi

  1. I love NY! I hope you have as great of a time as I did when I went in 2006. My suggestion is to go on the Staten Island Ferry. Unlike the other ferries (for example, the one that takes you to Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty), it's absolutely free! AND you still get to see both Ellis Island and Statue of Liberty from the free ferry. It also gives you great views of Manhattan, the Brooklyn Bridge, and is a great way to view the city. It was one of my top 3 favourite things to do when I was there.

    I hope that helps, and that you have a great, great, time.

    1. Thanks for the tip! I will make sure to use the Staten Island Ferry then, free tours that get you to the same point like the expensive touristy ones plus make you less obvious a tourist are always the best :) Would you also like to share the other two things on you top 3 list of favourite things in New York? :)

      I too hope that I'll have a great time!

    2. The other two things on my list of favourite things to do in NY was take a bike tour through central park (the poor guy who had to peddle my fat butt through the park was absolutely lovely. It can be a little pricey, but it's well worth it), and the broadway production of Wicked that I went to. :) Broadway is definitely an experience.

      Oh, and I'd also suggest going to the Empire State Building twice if you have time. I went once during the day, and again another time at night. In my opinion, seeing NY both during the day and again at night gives you a different perspective of the city. :)

  2. Bring ear plugs with you! New York really is the city that never sleeps and it's never ever quiet. :) That is what I learnt on my first trip to NY many years ago and I always make sure to bring a pack with me, hehe. :D

    2. No problem at all. :D It will save you a lot of stress and frustration. :) I used to sleep with my headphones on as well sometimes. Anything that keeps the noise out.

  3. That's some lovely mail :). Reading all these mail blogs gets me all itchy to get lots of mail again but I know thats not wise.

    Oh I can't wait to hear all about your adventures. I don't mind doing a post for you if you let me know what you'd want me to do.

  6. I'm afraid that I've never been to the New England states - so I have no advice - but I bet you will have fun!!

    I love it when people fold their letters into envelopes - I want to figure out how to do it.
