RCFreak Posted January 3, 2008 Share Posted January 3, 2008 So reading LOU's PTR has inspired me to post my pics I took on TPR's Spain 2007 Trip as well as the mini-Europe Add-on and my first trip to NYC! I ended taking 1,025 photos over the course of two and a half weeks, so bare with me as I re-size most (but definitely not all) and up-load them. Some of them you might have already seen on the mini updates and I'm sure more of them will pop up in the full updates when those finally get done too. *cough* Just as a warning I have the memory of a goldfish, so many stories have already been forgotten or will be jogged looking through my pics again. It all started when I got home from Australia 2006 and hadn't visited TPR in a while so it was a huge shock to find out they did a tour of UK that was open to everybody. Then I come to find out they had even MORE trips planned out and as soon as I heard about Spain I knew I had to go! Keep in mind I was never a huge poster in these forums and really didn't know anybody going on the trip. That in mind I had one of the BEST times I've EVER had in my life so far and have made many great friends out of it including Robb and Elissa themselves. (Shameless plug fo the trips? You decide. lol) In looking for flights I found an incredible deal through KLM and Northwest (blech!) out of JFK so I figured What the hell, I've never been to NY before, and here was a great chance to go for a bit. So there I was June 24, 2007 flying out on an adventure of a lifetime. After getting a decent nights sleep it was time to explore! I'm definitely not a planner and love to just go with the flow and see where things take me. I do usually have a few goals in mind but no structure to it. It definitely lets me have a much better time then fighting a time schedule to see as much as I can. I also figure it definitely would not be the last time I was in NYC. So the next morning we head off to Brooklyn to ride, what else, the Coney Island Cyclone! After getting my Nathan's Famous Hot Dog it was time to head off to the rides! A few rides on the Cyclone and a few of the other rides (inlcuding a really insane breakdance!) it was off to Times Square. I fell in love and actually spent the majority of my next two days around the area, I just couldn't get enough! Side trips to the Empire State Building, and The American Museum of Natural History (which also ate up a LOT more time then anticipated) Seeing both Spring Awakening and Marry Poppins (with ABC's SUpper Nanny sitting next to me!) and a whole lot of walking, off to Spain I went! Now for the pictures! Kinda looks photoshopped LEAVE ME ALOOOOOONE!!! Much cooler in person I don't want to grow up! When I played with LEGOS I never went that big... This was an animatronic, it kicked all sorts of a$$. Hello Kitty loves NYC too Toys"R"Us toy ferris wheel! it took me two seconds to realize which coaster wason the poster... is that bad? YES! New York's Hard Rock on broadway? These came out really good for not having a tripod... Almost as pretty as me! Time to head back to Manhattan see!?! This attraction is TPR approved! View up the Boardwalk This just cracked me up! My first wacky worm is actually on the lower left in this picture. overview of Dino's Wonder Wheel amusement park Cyclone from the top of the Observation tower. Oddly felt like I was back at Cedar point for a minute... When I sat down they actually had to hammer a nail back into place on our log! Safety first kids. ooohhhhh There she is the day before she turned 80! Flashbacks to Problem Child 2... *blech* awww look he made a friend! I shall call you Squishy! Insert a joke about the shaft here Astroland, but for how much longer? "feed the Clowns or they will kill you in your sleep" This ride is for swingers A look toward the Cyclone an Intamin Observation tower and that INSANE break dance! The "guts" of a ferris Wheel is one of my favorite things to look at. I'm actually terrified for my life right now... I didn't know Ghosts had holes... The Original Coaster Wheel. Jeff Johnson counts this as 16 credits! I see something in the distance... Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
