    New York

    January 25, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 0 °C

    Today we had a chilled out day, we woke up late and had brunch. I got to have my first ever bagel! We went on a double decka bus tour of up town and down town New York! Our tour guide Paul was a very interesting fella too. We seen the flat iron building which is triangular in shape, along with the NY library which is the second biggest in the world, Harlem was an eye opener as it was very different to Manhattan it seemed to be where all the black people lived and was definitely a poorer suburb. After both tours we went back to the room to get changed for dinner and headed to an Irish pub 🍀 I got the bangas and mash and it was so good! We went back to our room and had an early night, I was really good to have a bit of a rest because we have been so flat out since we got here!Read more

    New York

    January 24, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 4 °C

    We went every where yesterday!
    - Empire state building
    - Central Park
    We rode on horse and carriage around the park and seen heaps of dog walkers, like actual ones they were walking about 20 dogs at the one time! The park was huge
    - The plaza food court (we had dumplings and they were amazing)
    - Maddison Square Garden
    Unfortunately Maddison Square was closed to go inside due to them setting up ready for the Grammys, but we went out the front and looked at the outlay of just how big it is inside.
    - Central Station
    We had to go see central station it was in my favourite Rv show gossip girl so it was only fitting we took a photo 😂
    - Broadway
    We watched The Book of Mormon at broadway and it was amazing ! It was by far the best show I have ever seen.

    New York

    January 23, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 13 °C

    We had a great day today! We woke up when ever we liked for the first time since we have been on the holiday it was so good to sleep in for a bit. We headed down to Tiffany's where we found out we couldn't have breaky because there was a month long waiting list!
    I brought a beautiful pendant to wear at a necklace and also I can clip it onto my bracelet that I got off toby for my 21st.
    We headed to lunch and then back to Tiffany's to pick up the pendant. We also went and visited the NBA store and the Adidas store which is the largest store in the world!
    After our shopping adventures we went to the National History Museum where they filmed night at the museum. We caught the subway back to our hotel and got ready to meet up with our friends for some NY pizza and then ice skating at the Rocker Fella centre, god toby and I were hopeless at it! When we finished ice skating we went up to the top of the Rocker Fella and the view was surreal, we could see the Statue of Liberty through the binoculars as well!
    On the way back to our rooms we called in at Juniors for some desert, where it was supposed to be home to America's best Cheesecake but we still think the Cheesecake Factory takes the cake 😊

    New York

    January 22, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 8 °C

    What a great day👍🏼
    We started off with meeting our friends Caitlin and Jordan for breaky, after we traveled on the subway towards the cruise line doc where we caught a cruise boat around New York seeing some of the popular attractions like the Statue of Liberty and Brooklyn Bridge!
    We then headed towards the 9/11 memorial and museum which was very interesting and extremely sad! It was definitely an eye opener.
    Once we explored the museum we headed out to a very nice Italian restaurant, we visited the ice skating rink at the Rockefeller building and checked it out ready for tomorrow night.
    We said goodnight to our mates and did a little shopping in Times Square on the way back to our room! We are currently laying in bed getting ready to get some shut eye for our big day tomorrow! Stay tuned for our next adventure in New York 🙌🏽

    LAX - JFK New York

    January 21, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 8 °C

    We got up very early for a 7am flight from Los Angeles toward New York, the flight went pretty quickly and we finally arrived in New York!
    We got a shuttle from the air port and it took forever to get to our hotel but once we finally got settled in we went straight down the road to Times Square. It was amazing to see, all the lights and people putting on shows in the middle was really cool.
    We headed to dinner and had a feast we hadn't eaten since breaky so we really did dig in! Once we were finished we wondered back to our rooms and went to bed early ready for a big day tomorrow.

    San Fran - LA

    January 20, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 10 °C

    Well it was back to LA we went. We left San Fran early this morning and traveled on the bus with ten others that were left. San Francisco was an amazing place but at the same time an eye opener to the mass amount of homeless population that reside there, it was incredible how many people were on the streets! Last night we walked home from a bar with eight others from the tour through a section of San Fran called the Tenderloin, this section of the city is home to majority of the homeless population and boy was it scary! In San Fran history tells a story of the homelessness being caused by quite a lot of mental health problems and other cities sending their homeless peoples the San Fran, ironic that it is one of the most expensive cities in the state of California.
    Any way we made it to LA and said good bye to some our beautiful tour guide Laura she was absolutely amazing 🙌🏽
    And our crazy bus driver Teresa! 😂
    We headed back to Santa Monica pier to see it in the day and watch the sunset with our friends that were left, we headed down to muscle park next to the pier that was full of gymnastics equipment that any one can use! We then headed to dinner with our friends Nicole, Chris, Jade and Gaby. We went to the Cheesecake Factory and it was bloody beautiful. After that we headed back to the pier for our friends that hadn't seen it to get photos and then we headed back to the room after a lot of sad goodbyes. We have another big day of travel tomorrow we have to be up at 4 to head to the air port ready to fly out to New York at 7am we are very excited 😊

    San Francisco

    January 19, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    We had the best day in San Fran today! We started our day at Alcatraz and did an audio tour of the cells wearing head phones, which told us all the stories and events of what happened. We then headed back on the ferry just in time to head to the fisher mans wharf near pier 39 for some fish and chips for lunch.
    After lunch we headed fraught to the Golden Gate Bridge to get a photo so we could tick another thing off our bucket list ✅ once we finally got to see the bridge without any fog(carl) lying around we headed to Hyde st to catch the tram up to union square where we did a bit of shopping. We walked back to Lombard st where he worlds craziest st lies with all its bends and on the way walked through China town. We eventually made it back to where we fist got on the tram and then headed towards where we are staying to get ready for a Chinese dinner!
    All in all it was an amazing day exploring all that San Fran has to offer 🙌🏽

    San Francisco

    January 18, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 14 °C

    We had a great day exploring San Fran, the only bad part was that the weather was very miserable and the fog was so heavy we couldn't see the Golden Gate Bridge! So we are off to see that today. We went and seen the painted ladies which is a group of really old houses that are painted different colours they are very pretty to see. Before dinner we went to see Pier 39 and the sea lions that live just off the deck.
    We went out for dinner at boudins for a soup in a sour dough bowl which was a great idea considering the weather.
    After dinner we went to an arcade inside of a bar which was fun, and then home to bed to get well rested ready for Alcatraz.

    Lake Tahoe

    January 16, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 2 °C

    We had a great day skiing today! It is a lot different from skiing in Australia that's for sure, you catch a lift called a gondola up to the slopes from the closest town.
    They haven't had a lot of snow fall yet but we were lucky because it snowed today, the views from the lifts were spectacular!
    We headed home from the slopes and did some washing and got some takeaway Mexican with a few new friends and are ready to get to bed. Very keen for another day up there tomorrow!
