My husband often reminisces whilst watching television, his favourite phrase is 'I've been there'. We could be watching a news report form London, a wildlife documentary in Mull, a holiday programme set in New Zealand and frequently, all the wonderful shows we watch set in numerous cities in the USA, it doesn't matter if 'I've been there'!
A few years ago Hubby and I were lucky enough to spend a long weekend in New York to celebrate my birthday. Our hotel was literally round the corner from the Empire State building and we loved exploring the city recognising so many familiar landmarks as seen in magazines, films or tv.
We took one of the guided bus tours and came across a film crew in action on the bridge just outside Grand Central Station
I know it is really difficult to see but there is a group of people fighting and Will Smith the star of the film is there. The film is I am Legend and my husband and I have seen the film and really can say 'I've been there'!!
