Surprise, I'm in America! Well, New York to be precise! Last year my mum was saying that "one day" she would like to visit New York and I told her that you have to make your dreams a reality and that we would go to New York and we would go together! Although this is a holiday for us I wanted it to be the most amazing and special holiday she's ever had and that means beating France and Spain from almost two years ago! My first consideration was staying in the absolute best New York accomodation possible and I was so lucky that one of my clients has the Plaza on 5th avenue. So I want to thank the guys at the Plaza for looking after us, for the amazing media rates and for being the most quintessentially classic New York hotel on the market! Thank you, thank you! @ThePlazaHotel #ThePlazaHotel
