Hi there! I'm Elishia.

A couple of years ago my husband and I took a massive leap across the pond and moved from the UK to NYC, and what a couple of years it’s been.

I like stories. No, I love stories.

I like to lose myself in a good book, one after another. I like to snuggle on the sofa, wrapped up, while I watch a film with a glass of wine. I like watching T.V. shows whilst I cook. I listen to audio books when I run, or walk, or travel of any kind. I love the immediacy of live theater.  I like to conjure people from thin air and write them into my own stories. I like to find the story in a picture and tell a story with a photograph.

Very rarely, do people give credit to their own stories. What makes a good story? The ups and downs, the ins and outs, great love and difficult loss. If your life looks like this, you're living it right.



This is Will, aka London and he has been left behind in London and will be joining me on this blogging adventure. AcrossThePond will be a letter between London and New York chronicling our experiences of each fantastic city whilst snapping away at those iconic skylines.

With a shared interest in photography, he sees it as his job to remind me of what I have left behind and has decreed that we need to take a beautiful photo of the relative cities which we call home, to make the other person as jealous as possible. 

Will is one of those people with so many interests so I am sure we'll be getting a recipe or two, book recommendations, photography tips, travel advice... the list goes on and on. I must say, I'm excited to be starting this blogging thing with someone else and Will is the perfect fit!
