Simply Emma tells us about when her travel dream came true

Travel Goals

We asked Emma, one of the UK’s most popular disability bloggers to share a special travel memory and she told us:

“My dream was always to go to New York and I finally managed in 2011.  It was amazing to actually be there.  It felt like the movies, but so much better!  This photo is from the day we spent in Brooklyn and then walked across Brooklyn Bridge back to Manhattan.

I’ve been back twice since that trip and each time I love it even more.  It’s my favourite city.”
