My next adventure was a school trip to Washington D.C. and New York. Unfortunately about half way through the week I managed to fracture my wrist, but I didn't let that stop me! We went to countless different places, and it would be impossible for me to mention everything in such a short space. That's probably one of the most difficult things about writing this blog: it's just not feasible to include everything, and all the little things that add up to make up my experience just won't fit. My aim is to provide you with a snapshot of my time, so that if you were to go and experience these new places for yourself, there are plenty of little gaps to be filled in. I really enjoyed my time in America even though the weather was freezing - I suppose you can't really expect much else if you're going in the February half term week.

to go and see 'Jersey Boys' on Broadway.
Before I go, I must give all the credit to one of my school friends, Bethany Smith, for the photographs. As my camera broke whilst I was away, the majority of the photos on this post have been taken by her. http://www.flickr.com/photos/bethanyrosesmith/
