Edgar Allen Poe’s Front Door, where the ghost walk begins

I did a ghost walk when I was recently in New York. If you have been following my blog, you’ll know that I’ve started a ghost series to recount my best walks and give suggestions (and photos or videos where I can). My first ghosty post was from York. Read it here.

Below are some photos with captions of the most haunted spots in NYC! Feel free to ask questions or give feedback about an awesome ghost walk you have done! (please try leave the name of the company and the city you did it in!) (more…)

Phantom of the Opera on Broadway

Taking my seat for Phantom of the Opera

I’m nearing the end of my travel series of throwback trips from 2018, and I’m ending with my trip for Christmas to New York. Rather the complete other extreme from my trip to Lesotho in Africa only 3 months before! We were lucky enough to see 3 shows on Broadway: Book of Mormon, Phantom of The Opera and Chicago. Book of Mormon was my favorite. I have been to NYC multiple times. I will always remember the time I studied there at The New York Film Academy. Check out photos of the school + more about the course I did here. And more photos of brilliant stuff to do in the city here. I even acted in a short film which you can check out here! For our Christmas trip, we stayed at The Pierre (a Taj Hotel) – more on that in another post.  (more…)
