A Story from a Single Image

A Story from a Single Image

A Story in a single image; today I was presented with 4 different images with the task of using one of them for inspiration for a post. I used the image below as it sparked a memory from a time when I explored New York…


This I believe is Grand Central station in New York city (although I could be mistaken). The Summer between graduation from my undergraduate degree and starting my PhD I did some travelling in the USA and Canada and New York was one of the places i visited (albeit briefly). I was travelling with my brother, a couple of close friends and my boyfriend at the time none of whom had been to New York before.

I think we were just killing some time wandering around the city when we suddenly realised that we were close to the station so figured that we would go take a look. I wasn’t prepared for how huge the place is and I’m not sure that this photo does it justice either. Now I know that Stations are usually big open spaces but this one had an air of grandeur to it – certainly living up to its name. You could also spot the few other tourists like us. They were the ones dawdling around, looking up, taking the whole place in unlike the locals, the commuters who simply rushed on to the place they needed to be.

By this point we were standing close to the circular desk/ticket/information point in the centre of the room. Next thing I know my brother, our 2 friends and I were sneaking out of sight of my bf to the far steps where we had a vantage of him. Lost in thoughts (I presume) he suddenly realised we had gone, without him. We then challenged ourselves to make it the whole way back from where we came (the opposite side of the station) without him knowing. Needless to say this was fairly easy even though the station was quieter than in this particular photo.

We did eventually go and grab him, much to his relief before taking some obligatory photos and heading off to continue our exploration of the city.


And that was the time that we played hide and seek in Grand Central Station, New York city.


Until next time keep adventuring!

  3. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of
    any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically
    tweet my newest twitter updates. I’ve been looking for a plug-in like thijs for quite some time and waas hoping maybe you would hwve some experience
    ith something like this. Please llet me know if you runn into anything.

    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I lolok forward
    to yohr new updates.

    1. Hey so right now I’m using a free wordpress blog set-up and I have linked my twitter account in so I can automatically share my new posts that way. Im not sure if that answers your question but I usually find a good google search usually throws up at least one blog/article telling/showing me how to fix an issue. Good Luck with twittering!

    1. Cheers for the great comment!
      As for subscription if you are using wordpress there is usually a subscribe button that appears and you can alter you settings to recievee notification/and or emails for new posts. If not I have a email subscription box on the left hand side of the blog. Hope this helps!

  4. Oh my goodness! Amazing article dude! Thanks, However I am experiencing
    issues with your RSS. I don’t know why I can’t subsccribe to it.
    Is there anybody getting the same RSS issues?
    Anybody who knows the answer will you kindly respond? Thanks!!

  5. Hey there! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I
    had to ask. Does building a well-established website like yours take a lot
    of work? I’m brand new to writing a blog however I do write in my diary
    everyday. I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and feelings online.
    Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for
    brand new aspiring blog owners. Appreciate it!

    1. Hi, in answer to our question not really. To be honest it depends on you and how much time you have/want to devote to building it up. The key is consistency (something I have struggled with at times) even if you only post once or twice a week if you consistently do that you will soon be well on your way. The hardest part is starting but there are many very supportive blogging groups out there both general and niche specific that will help answer all your questions and give the feedback and encouragement every newbie blogger needs!
      Good luck on your blogging adventure!
