My Dad had planned on flying me to New York and taking me to see Hamilton on Broadway.
I can't tell you how emotional I got when he told me that he was going to do that for me. I have an amazing dad, he doesn't even like musicals. I couldn't believe he was actually going to do it. He even had the money put aside but things happened, and we ended up not going.
I told him just the thought that he was going to, was enough for me. To be honest I'm kinda glad it fell through, because I would've felt bad. We have plenty of other things we could spend money on.
So he decided to take me to Storybrooke instead.
For those you who don't know Storybrooke is a fictional place where most of the show 'Once upon a Time' is filmed. Which is a fairy tale based show that twists up all the classics. I adore it!
It has one of my favorite villains of all time, Rumpelstiltskin!
Also this handsome devil
Actually the whole cast is pretty fantastic, I would highly recommend. So of course, I was insanely excited for this trip.
I found out that Storybrook is filmed in a very real place called Steveson which happens to be only half a day's trip from where I live. Most of the time on any normal day you might only recognize a few things from the show, like Granny's or the Library. ( without the clock tower because that is CGI)
So basically a few times a month when they film, they have a crew come in and set up the Storybrook stuff, change some signs, park some cars with Maine on the license plate. They then film for one or two days then take it down.
We had really fantastic fish & chips, which is one of my favorite meals to have. Plus it was pretty foggy and chilly so it seemed to fit.
We stood in the rain for over an hour, walk around, It's a super cool little town. Went into shops and hung out on the wharf, then we stopped for London Fogs to warm up, and went home.
All and all it was a pretty awesome day.
