Gateway to the West: Here&There

It is Day 11 in the countdown until Old World New Girl (the blog)’s 1st birthday, and I have been busy enjoying my best friend and family as we prepare for my new godson!  I love days like this, where the only thing that matters is enjoying the people you love.

On a totally unrelated, yet important note: If you are unfamiliar with this relatively new “Here&There” mini series on OWNG, I share photos I’ve taken (or photos taken of me) in the different places I’ve visited.   Today, I give you the Jefferson National Expansion Memorial, also known as the Gateway to the West, and also known simply as the Gateway Arch.  I visited it a few years ago (2009) as an interior design major.  See my pics below.

Three OWNG facts learned from today that you can add to your file of OWNG facts (no need to be ashamed, I know you’re keeping them.  I would, too, haha =)

3.  My family and friends mean the world to me, therefore you will more than likely see text about or photos of them.  Cherish the moments with me =)

4.  I love to travel and I love to visit places I’ve never been before and dive into the real culture of an area.  On a recent trip to Houston, I learned a great way to do that is by visiting the thrift shops there!  So there old things go, saving the day again.  Touristy areas are fun, too, though.

5.  I love being high above the ground.  The ride to the top of the Gateway Arch and the view from within was amazing; I didn’t want to leave.  Take me to the tallest building, put me on the craziest carnival ride that free falls through the air, or put me on a plane.  Let me be free to fly and see the world from on high!

There are 10 days left in this awesome countdown, and I’m still excited!  I hope you’re getting excited, too!  OWNG is soon to be 1!  Happy 12 Days of OWNG to you!

Until next time, Ci Vediamo!!!
